Best Wine Bar Houston 2009 - 13 Celsius
For amateurs and oenophiles alike, 13 Celsius is a little slice of heaven. And don't let the Midtown address scare you off; this cozy establishment is thankfully free of the douchiness that plagues many of the area's bars and clubs. No one will laugh at you if you can barely tell the difference between Pinots Grigio and Noir; this is a place to relax and enjoy a ginormous wine selection (not to mention meats and cheeses), not one that draws those who simply want to seem sophisticated. There is plenty of seating inside the Mediterranean-style building, and the courtyard seating is delightful as well. Whether you're with a date or a small group of friends, if you want to sit and talk and indulge, this place is hard to beat.
