Vein Wine Bar & Bistro in Glyfada is an upscale wine bar offering tapas as well as a few featured entrées.
Walking into Vein you immediately realize that they mean business. The ultra-modern, meets industrial styled wine bar has a dramatic interior that is a welcome sight in the trendy beachside community of Glyfada. Your sophistication level goes up the minute you enter this dimly lit urban lounge. I think of it as the Gotham City of Glyfada.
Atmosphere and aesthetics are important to me and this place ticks both boxes. They have a great eclectic mix of smooth music playing at the perfect volume and they also do live Jazz events.
I’m a sucker for dips. They have an amazing little creamy dip they bring to the table with crackers… ours is always gone before we even open the menu. More please!
I mentioned that I like dips- I probably like dips so much because it means that I get to dip some bread like object into the dip and enjoy them together. Because of my love for the cheese/bread combo, I opted for the cold cut & cheese plate/αλλαντικών και τυριών.
We did not go to Vein for dinner, but since I got a snack, my husband also had to order something. He doesn’t do cheese. He went for the chicken filet/κοτόπουλο φιλέτο which came in a rich, creamy, herb infused sauce and was served with steamed vegetables.
We both enjoyed our food choices and the wine. We ordered a bottle of Aspros Lagos Cabernet 2012 from their extensive wine list.
We’ve been to Vein Wine Bar & Bistro a few times since it opened in 2014 and probably should visit it more often. If you are looking for a relaxing evening out in a stylish setting, Vein is perfect for you.
OH! And they have fondue! So stay tuned for ‘Vein part 2′ after I go for some melted-cheesy-goodness.
