As the name suggests, the City Winery in Ivy City is a great place to have a glass of wine. Despite this reputation as a wine destination, the kitchen is also gaining a reputation for turning out locally-sourced, Mediterranean-inspired dishes that pair well with the extensive wine list.
What you may not know about City Winery is that it’s also a multi-purpose venue for events, running the gamut from private parties to concerts featuring internationally renowned artists. A smattering of events scheduled for this June includes candle-making and painting workshops, wine, whiskey, and beer appreciation classes, events for the Washington Jewish Music Festival, and concerts from artists like David Cook, Ginuwine, Ruff Endz, John Waite, and Laura Gibson. Tickets and event listings are available on the venue’s website. Whether you come out for drinks and dinner or to catch a show, there’s no bad time to visit City Winery.
