Birmingham, you probably recognize the co-owners of this wine bar— Kristen Hall and Victor King of The Essential and Bandit Pâtisserie. Kristen Hall is the executive pastry chef and Victor King is the executive chef.

These co-owners are hoping to bring a “fête” to Bham, which means a celebration or party in French. In fact, you can have your own party in the lounge area, which is available for private events.
