Who We Are

We are Secco Wine Bar. With a humble dream, a humbler budget and a pile of recycled wood we have constructed a sanctuary for all things delicious. We believe that drinking good stuff is a natural right, so we proudly serve an array of artisanal wines (including 30 plus by-the-glass offerings) and amazing craft beers at a ridiculously fair price. All these flowing potables are anchored around a menu where seasonal ingredients, farmstead cheeses, traditional charcuterie and house-made everything are worked into a wide selection of spectacular snacks and small plates. Our casual-chic vibe makes Secco equally ideal for a leisurely dinner, late night drinks or a quick and delicious lunch. Still, what really sets Secco apart is a staff that is friendly, knowledgeable and dedicated to spreading the gospel of good eats.
