A friend and I recently strolled into Savvy Cellars to check it out and ended up staying for a shop tour, an eclectic flight of blended reds (what they featuring for their tasting that day-very yum), a plate of artisan cheeses and great conversation. Jennifer, one of the owners introduced herself to us and let us in on their unique theme - they only sell wines that have been rated 90 points or higher (several sources are used as the basis for these scores) and cost under $40! There are user-friendly descriptions posted for every wine available for sale so one can purchase with confidence or at least have a good idea of what they are getting into. The selection represents wines from around the globe but not in an overwhelming way.
The atmosohere is that of a cozy, neighborhood convivial feel and the staff was extremely friendly, professional and knowledgable. They appeared to actually be enjoying their job - imagine that!! No pressure was put on us at all to buy which is nice for a change.
I hear they have a wine club with some great little perks and live jazz - we'll be going back to check this out!
Good times - it will be easy to become regulars here...

a friend and i checked out this wine bar/shop one saturday night a few months ago. i was a little leary of going because my previous experiences at OTHER wine bars was not good. (very snotty, pretentious patrons and staff.) what a PLEASANT SURPRISE savvy cellar wines turned out to be! we sat at the bar, where we were quickly welcomed by a guy working behind the counter. he presented us with menus and took ample time to answer all our questions. my friend got a flight of reds, i got an interesting french red (recommended by the server) which tasted different with every sip. we also got a cheese plate which was delicious. a jazz trio was playing that night. this only added to the sultry ambiance. the bar/shop is decorated in rich gold and burgandy hues, accented with deep brown wood tables/chairs and a long bar. the owner, a friendly woman named jennifer, was behind the bar (and also accompanied the jazz trio with a few songs). she checked on us a few times, and was extremely welcoming. she introduced herself and asked our names. i have a feeling that this is a place where you would be remembered if you returned. not at all what i expected from a wine bar, but like i said, a pleasant surprise.
