I went on a blind date with local blogger Hillary of Make Statements. She has appeared on here before as an outfit feature, but it was great to officially meet her and talk blog shop. She suggested Unwind Wine Bar and the choice couldn’t have been better. I’ve been a number of times and it is definitely a place to head to when the weather warms up. They have some great outdoor seating right off the sidewalk, which allows you to really feel like you are out and about in Hyde Park.
We each simply went for a single glass pour of wine, but they do offer a variety of flight options and also have a open and viewable wine closet with special prices for bottles. While I’m only versed in their Allen Scott Sauvignon Blanc, they do offer a light fare menu and I’m dying to go back and try the bruschetta capra (local cranberry/orange goat cheese mousse, roasted shallots, spiced honey) and tomato tartar (tomato confit, white truffle cream, local greens).
So if you are looking for a great place to hang, especially in the middle of the week, I definitely suggest Unwind. There were plenty of people there on that mid-week night, which made the place feel alive, and yet there was enough seating for anyone to park. All of those are a must when looking for an excellent happy hour meet up.
my necklace and top (similar Thanks Jess!) (Also, Hillary had on the most amazing necklace. Cannot stop thinking about it. Unfortunately her hair is covering some of it, but I’ll make sure we get our hands on it as soon as possible.)
