Since opening this past September, Bar Von Der Fels has quickly made a name for itself as one of the best wine spots in the city. The small, inconspicuous space in the Beltline is simply elegant inside, with minimalist decor and dimmed lighting that lets the wine and food do the talking.

Sommeliers and co-owners Will Trow and Thomas Dahlgren and have assembled an extensive list of more than 250 white, red and sparkling wines and Champagnes, offered by the bottle. A few wines are available by the glass as well, with selections changing nightly.

Chef Eric Hendry heads up the kitchen at Bar Von Der Fels, offering a small but impactful menu that ranges from cheeses and charcuterie to more substantial fare, such as a Brandt Lake beef tartare. The combination of high-quality wine, carefully curated menu and cozy, intimate space makes Bar Von Der Fels the kind of room where you’ll want to settle in and stay late.
