It's a dive bar that pours in natural wine, craft cocktails and fancy Citywides.

This Friday, January 10th, Wine Dive will open on South Street serving wine, cocktails, beer, cider and food in a casual, dive-y environment. The bar comes to us from Chris Fetfatzes & Heather Annechiarico, who also own the Cambridge next door.

The drink menu includes a wide variety of wines by the glass, from $5 to $15, classic and original cocktails, and a variety of pony beer and shot combinations, including the Italian Stallion which, for $10, gets you a Miller Lite and a pour of amaro. On Wednesday nights, $10 will buy you a beer, shot and a burger, and that’s just the beginning of their many, many specials. Manhattan Mondays will bring $10 barrel-aged Manhattan. On Saturdays, a.k.a “Naturdays”, natural wines will be available with special by the glass prices. Sparkling wine is the special on Saber Sundays, named for the special sword that is used to slice open a bottle of sparkling wine. It is unclear whether they’ll actually be using a saber, but we’re hoping yes.

They’ve also invented the word “Wowler” which is apparently currently being trademarked. It refers to empty wine bottles in two sizes (25 and 12.7 ounces) that you’ll be able to have filled in house from any of 8 wines on tap.

Food from chef Derek Cantwell (also the chef at the Cambridge) will be bar snack classics all the way, with chicken sandwiches, a burger, nachos and a PBR chili, plus a few salads and lighter options.

Wine Dive will be open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m., with the kitchen closing nightly at 1 a.m.
