I have been seeing a lot of posts on Facebook about this unique wine bar. Just from the pictures of the outdoor patio and stylish wine glasses, I was really intrigued by The Wine Bar at Allure. I told my friends and my fiancé Chris that we have to try this new bar. So on Tuesday evening, Chris brought some of his friends and we enjoyed a summer evening with wine. Not only did I sip some wine, but I also enjoyed a refreshing wine slushie and tasty deviled eggs. I was pretty excited about the wine slushie! What a treat to beat the heat!

Our waitress at The Wine Bar at Allure Tasha was so friendly. She was knowledgeable about the wine on the menu, the appetizers and small plate options, and The Wine Bar at Allure itself. You can tell she was enthusiastic about The Wine Bar at Allure.

Next time when it's not raining, we'll be back at The Wine Bar at Allure on the patio! Thank you for a wonderful evening.
