Co-Owner and operator Zack Walters caught the fire for the magic of wine after a transformative wine class in Bordeaux, France in 2006, and has been obsessed ever since. Through his wine adventures, he realized his goal for The Wine Bar: to bring community and great wine together in a casual, relaxed, and creatively conducive environment, highlighting the best wines he can find, paired with the best local artists.
The Wine Bar started as the lovechild of Alex Naticchioni (LB jerky) and Mike Menges in '09 before passing the torch on to Zack, who has taken it and ran with it. Recently, Tyson Parrish, Long Beach native and long time friend and musical collaborator of Zack, has joined the fold.
It's really hard to come to The Wine Bar and not end up making a friend. Whether it's jazz night with world class performers; vinyl night, where you bring your own vinyl to be played; or just a glass of your favorite varietal or brew after work, you're bound to have a good time and make some new friends at The Wine Bar.
