Satisfaction in Downtown Culver City
Last Wednesday, I spent happy hour at Ugo Wine Bar in Culver City. The week before, we spent it at Bottle Rock (where I've had a great time on the weekend), which was disappointing. It was loud, the service was slow and the food was expensive. Ugo Wine Bar was exactly the opposite and it was such a pleasure. We thought it was Vinum Populi, and it used to be, but these days, it's part of the Ugo empire.
They have a kind of unique set up. You buy a card for ten dollars and then you can take your glass around the bar and, using your card, sample numerous wines. Though they have many more reds, they have a nice small selection of crisp whites, as well as a selection of Mocktails.
