Sipping in the City

Vintage wines with a modern look at The Urban Grape


When they say there's a wine for every occasion, they aren't kidding. We're not just talking the obvious red-with-meat and white-with-fish, either.

We mean finding the perfect vintage Bordeaux to gift your father-in-law, or the right champagne that will ensure you get a second (and third) date. 

Whatever that wine may be, you'll find it at The Urban Grape, your new anytime wine cellar in the South End. 

As the new counterpart to the original location in Chestnut Hill, The Urban Grape makes an immediate impression with its modern twist on the tasting room, centered around a 14-foot tasting table and high-tech station that serves up samples from 16 different bottles on command. 

With 760 bottles lining the room's well-stocked shelves, you'll never be caught without the perfect beverage for any occasion. The 400-plus beers and 70 sakes only reinforce that point.

Call it a new kind of bottle service.
