The Wine at DiWine is So Divine, it Makes Us Want to (Karaoke) Shout
We love a good wine bar that brings the romance. With cozy booths, sheer curtains, and candlelit earth tones, DiWine fits the bill. This spot in Astoria is known for their wine selection, and with good reason—the list of international vintages is over 100 strong. Pick a bottle that catches your eye, order a few tapas to share—we recommend the truffle mac and cheese and the crab cakes—and cuddle up with your person on one of DiWine’s chocolate suede couches. When in doubt, try their Lambrusco, a sparkling, chilled red that pairs well with everything.
It could be the wine—or it could be your S.O.—that’s got you feeling loose, but we think the next logical move is Karaoke Shout. Declarations of “I love you” always sound better set to music, so whether you’re a K-town karaoke pro or a secret shower singer, you’ll want to take to the mic tonight. You can even download the app to select songs straight from your phone. The bold among you will love performing to the crowd in the main area, but if a private performance is more your speed, you can book a room for a party of two.
