Wine bars a go go...

It looks like Barbrix will be under construction for several more months...
Cobras and Matadors on Hollywood Blvd. has expanded into a wine bar next door, we learned via Daily Candy's Weekend Guide. Sgt. Recruiter (Wait, did Jason Lee have another baby?) seats 15 and serves onion rings, oysters, mussels and such to go with the wine.

And Cafe Stella, which has long had a sort-of wine bar in one room, is making it into a full-on wine bar when the Frenchy bistro expands into an adjacent dining room in January. Plans for Artisan in Echo Park are farther down the line, says partner Francois Renaud.

Plus, there's Silver Lake Wine's recent expansion, Barbrix, which is deep in construction on Hyperion, and the wine shop-cum-tasting room in Atwater...the neighborhood will soon be awash in grape juice.

Thanks for enlightening me on the Sgt Recruiter wine bar thang. My friend and I drove by the other night and thought that it was a gay bar, from the name and the glaring neon sign. Ha!

Too bad it can't be both. At least we have Bin 8945.
