For real! We are now open:

Tuesday & Wednesday 4 pm - 12 am
Thursday, Friday & Saturday 4 pm - 2 am

In addition to 12 bottles by the glass, we are serving beautiful food. Charcuterie, lovingly made by James Kohls, and cheeses procured from Chasing the Cheese, as well as weekend specials, are available until 11 pm. My goal is to be able to serve food until closing hour, and hopefully we'll get there before the end of summer.

Currently available by the glass:

Normanno Insolia
Lillypilly Sauvignon Blanc
Santa Lucia Gazza Laddra Fiano
Exultet White Light

Lighthall Cabernet Franc Rose

Cuvee Jean Paul Vaucluse
Terranoble Pinot Noir
Vinos Jeromin Puerta de Alcala Crianza
R8 Cabernet Sauvignon
Terre di Balbia Balbium

Contarini Prosecco

Lillypilly Noble Blend

Carefully made cocktails are built with housemade bitters (aromatic and orange), fresh squeezed juice and flavoured syrups.

I'm flying by the seat of my pants these days, adjusting to life as an entrepreneur. It's both amazing and a little strange to host people in this space I've spent so much time alone (or with Roland) in over the last few months. I really love it in here. There is so much I'd like to share with you about the experience of opening this place, and so many photos waiting to be posted. Please stay with me as I settle into this new life and get organized... I do have lots to show and tell you, I just don't have enough time!

Please come see us. This will be our second weekend open to the public, and while there is still lots of work to do (every day we learn something new about running Le Petit Bar), we have hit the ground running. I am very happy to welcome you into Le Petit Bar, the little space that is a real extension of me and something I've been looking forward to sharing with you for, what feels like, a long time now.

See you soon
