Wine Bar in Tiburon
Most SF folk know Tiburon because of Sam’s. But for those who prefer to sophisticatedly sip rather than guzzle brews, it’s worth the trek over to the cute town to visit the brand new Main Street Wine Bar. Just opened in the former Prima Palate space, this cute spot offers happy hour every day including 3 – 5 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. The shop sells wine from small producers in California and around the world. Sit indoors or outdoors (heat lamps a plus) and beer, artisan cheese plates, and gourmet foods are also available for purchase. Open 2 – 6:30 p.m. Dun-Weds, 12 – 8 p.m. Thurs - Sat. 84 Main St, Tiburon.
