This is the view from the upstairs Wine Mezzanine at Joey Eaton Centre.
It’s not often that you get a separate wine area in a restaurant that’s not a private dining room. So if you want to really get into some good wines, this is where you should be.
The first circular enomatic wine dispensing machine in Canada ensures that every glass you get is fresh, and if you’re like me – a lush – you’ll appreciate the fact that you can choose either a 6 oz. or 9 oz. glass! And because you’ll have the sommelier all to yourself up here on the upper level, you can talk with people who have a high level of knowledge and who are passionate about wine.
To me, it’s the convenience of having your own personal wine club without any expensive membership fees. And because of the enomatic, you can get wines up to $25/glass and try on some varietals and more eclectic wines that you wouldn’t normally get a chance to have.
Whether you like old or new world, they’ve got it all. And feel free to order some food while you’re up here too. There’s no separate menu or restrictions on what you can have upstairs versus downstairs (Thank you, Joey).
It looks like this is going to be my new home away from home. Wanna join me?
