Uptown Wine Bar – Baldwin Park
We’re lucky to live in Baldwin Park, an awesome community that is not short on great shops, bars and restaurants but one of our faves is Uptown Wine Bar. Specializing in craft beers and a huge variety of wine, Uptown is our go-to spot on Friday nights after #familydinner with our friends Brian and Steven. We go there so much that we’ve become close friends with the manager Abbey and Brian and I have even taken them on as a client partners at Blue Helium Concepts. Uptown keeps it cozy with a blend of a dark wood bar and comfy half-booth high top tables…it definitely helps to be in a relaxing environment while sipping on a nice glass of wine or Emergency Drinking Beer, one of Andrew’s favorite’s.
Not only do they have some great wines which we frequently polish off bottle after bottle, they also have our more appropriate drink for when we’re watching calories and carbs, MIA Beer Company’s HRD WTR. We drink so much of this stuff and have turned so many people on to it that the Uptown team is working on getting it on draft YAY! You can also take care of those drinking induced snack cravings with one of their awesome meat and cheese boards served on gorgeous marble slab platters.
To top it all off, they have games like Jenga, Cards Against Humanity, Uno and plenty of decks of cards for some gold old Go Fish. Seriously, if you haven’t played Go Fish as an adult, it’s much more entertaining…especially when your darling husband changes it to “Go F*ck Yourself” 🤷🏾♂️. Next time you’re in our neighborhood, be sure to stop in to see Abbey and crew for an afternoon adult beverage.
