LUX Awards: Best Bar Nominees

bar // bär // place: a counter across or location which alcoholic drinks or refreshments are served.


Vino & Friends - In February of 2011, we made the decision to expand to a bigger, 4,000 square foot location that included a bistro complete with an appetizer menu.  Somehow between February and when we opened in August the menu grew from just appetizers to include heartier offerings like pastas, sandwiches and our famous Bruschetta.

As of today we offer over 40 wines by the glass and enjoy putting on wine dinners for 50 to 60 people monthly. Our wine club now has over 725 members and we have over 300 wines in stock. It has been a journey of hard work and long hours, and of course there are days that we just want to throw our hands in the air.  But we keep coming back because of our passion for wine, the experience that it creates and all of the friends we have made along the way.


The Standard Restaurant & Lounge - Experience the luxuries of a high-end, very warm restaurant and lounge right in your own neighborhood. The Standard offers an upscale all-encompassing setting complete with outdoor cabanas, private dining and two patios.


Bella Vino - Emerging as the "Must Go Destination", Bella Vino Cellar invites you to come and try some of our carefully selected wine-by-the glass, imported beers or make a purchase from our extensive wine selection. Great Wine, Great Service, Fun Atmosphere.


Lime Lite - Owner Brandon Smittcamp has continued the tradition into our 50th year of providing fine dining and enlightened hospitality that the Milutinovich Family preserved for decades. Brandon has added his own touches, too, to keep his prominent establishment in the “Lime Lite,” including: offering new and exotic libations from the bar and farm-fresh menu treats.


Max's Bistro & Bar - Experience California-bistro dining in a place reminiscent of San Francisco, where the cuisine is accessible and the service is humble. Max's bar is swanky, their food is pleasing to the palette, their presentation is lovely and their sweet potato fries are famous!
