Rocking at Bottle Rock

At 9 o’clock on a summer Saturday night, Bottle Rock is hopping. People are throwing parties there, grouping the tall tables together and sharing from the small plates menu that features seasonal fruit and vegetables and artisan cheeses and charcuterie. In fact, the whole place is lit with the comfortable scent of grilled cheese. The music is full of feel good guitars, that seem vaguely recognizable, even when you don’t really know the song. The waiters are very knowledgeable, and they’ll open any bottle if you buy two glasses. The lighting is low and candlelit, and the place is packed with wine bottles, most are unusual, not just the ones you’d pick up at Trader Joe’s (and sadly, priced accordingly.) That being said, you can get a couple of reasonably priced glasses of wine there, and a large dollop of warm, inviting ambience.
