There is nothing better than a chill night out with friends, sipping wine and savoring light bites. Look no further than these spots: the best wines bars in Downtown LA.
Mignon Wine & Cheese Bar
You won’t be disappointed at Mignon Wine & Cheese Bar. Not to mention that their snack game is on point but there is a great selection of wine to choose from, too.

Buzz Wine Beer Shop
Okay, so this is not exactly your typical wine bar, but that doesn’t mean it’s not a cool one. At Buzz Wine Beer Shop, you can go to the shop and buy your own wine (or beer) and then enjoy it right there in the store. No cork fees or anything. Just a relaxed, laid-back environment for wine and beer lovers to come together and enjoy it under one roof. And if you’re up for it, they also have a tasting bar!
