Currently, The Wine Loft is only open to the public on Wednesday evenings. Get over that mid-week slump with eclectic tapas, a sophisticated ambiance and wine by the glass or bottle.

Freddy’s, located on the first floor of Highland Towers Apartments, has all the specials. Every Tuesday-Thursday from 4-6PM, a different regional wine is $2 off a glass and house wine carafes are $2 off as well. On Mondays, bottles of wine are half off all night. Sounds like a plan to me.

4. Red or White

Stop by to relax and enjoy a glass of wine at the bar. Once you’re done, you can buy a bottle to take home from their extensive selection of reds, whites and more.
