If it’s wine you want, the local spots are SeaLegs Wine Bar at Beach Boulevard and Atlanta Avenue, and Main Street Wine Company on Main between Olive and Orange Avenues. Both pour boutique California wines and plate gourmet bites.
If it’s wine with an oceanfront view you want, we’ve got that too! SeaLegs Wine Bar’s seaside sister—SeaLegs at the Beach—pours wine by the glass and bottle literally on the sand at Bolsa Chica State Beach. Though not exclusively wine bars, Watertable at the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach and Tanner’s at Paséa Hotel & Spa offer extensive wine menus, coastal views, and a relaxed, swanky ambiance.
Bonus: Watertable features WineEmotion, a modern wine dispensing system that grants guests the option to sample any wine on their list—with a two-glass minimum. Branching out above Tanner’s, the Treehouse Bar lets you sip your wine among the treetops.
