City Sip

Gosh golly, it sure is hard to find a good happy hour in the Echo Park area. I knew City Sip was in Echo Park and I've heard good things about them so I called my favorite wine-guy, Shaun-Mathieu, and we headed on down.

City Sip's happy hour runs from Tuesday -Friday from 5:30-7pm and offers a nice selection of wine, beer, and small plates starting at $4.




















On our visit, we definitely did our best to try as many different wines as possible (hehehe). We had red, white, and sparkling wine and draft beer. City Sip does a nice job at offering good wines at happy hour, which I think is a must for a wine bar.  And starting at $4?? Well done, City Sip!


Their beer selection was also nice. I got the Allagash Curieux (loved), but they also offered:
-The Bruery Orchard White
-Taps Cream Ale
-Strand 24th Street Pale Ale
-Coronado Islander IPA
-Bootlegger’s Black Phoenix (...which is a Chipotle Coffee Stout. I'm trying that on my next visit!)


 For food, we began with the Trio of Olives, Almonds, and Cornichons. The almonds were warm and I just love those little pickles!
And then we moved on to the cheese plates. You can select any two cheeses for $5. We couldn't decide so we got all five and each one was great. Great quality cheese! (See above menu for choices.)
Then we had to order the Charcuterie platters. That's a no brainer!


The Bean and Cheese Crostini was delish! I loved the white bean topped with Burrata.
Mmmm, mmm.











The last thing we got was Caprese Sliders. Don't forget to dip it in the Balsamic on the plate. So good!














 
And if you can't make it out during the week, here are some cool weekend specials:
Saturdays: 5pm to 7pm, a wine tasting of 3 wines and 2 cheeses for $15! 
Sundays: 9p-11pm - ALL open bottles are half-off by the glass! Wow! That's a great deal!!

We were definitely happy with found City Sip. It's definitely a great spot to meet up with friends and have some good wine. If you are a wine lover, you should really try this place out!
