Anyone have a good name for a wine bar?

Asked by breedmitch (12093 points ) January 31st, 2008

I’m opening a new wine bar this spring and we are having the hardest time naming it. Something clever would be nice. Help me out jellyfish.

Cork’d is such a great name. Unfortunately you would be ripping of www.corkd.com if you called it that.

Olympus, named after the mythical mountain where ambrosia was served to the gods. Ambrosia? Ditto Bacchus.

Barrel Room

Terroir (not original, of course)

Sommelier’s (nice ring)

Crus du Monde (roughly “vintages of the world”)

Must (as in “the mixture of fermenting grape juice, pips, skins, and stalks”)

Racked (as in “transfer of wine from one container, such as a barrel, to another.”)

The Wine Box

White Zin Emporium

I like kevbo’s suggestion: Must.

Good Lucks oh that good too!!!

breedmitch's avatar

Wow! Thanks guys for all the responses. I guess we’ll have to open 30 wine bars now.
@gooch: Love “Noble Rot”. We thought of that one a few days back and I have to say it’s high on my list. One of us is vetoing it however. (oh the power of veto!)
@sndfreQ: I might push for “The Stomping Ground”. I like the ring of it. (hope you don’t mind my edit)
@kevbo: I can get behind “Must” and “Racked” but “White Zin Emporium”?? Well, I just might have to open a vein. (I know you were only joking. Right?)

segdeha's avatar

Must is an awesome name! It’s got multiple layers of meaning with the most obvious one being that you must go there. Nicely done, kevbo!

kevbo's avatar

3x Thanks!

(and, yes, I was joking about WZE)

kevbo's avatar

Nice. I’ll send my Brooklyn friend your way.

marinelife's avatar

@breedmitch Congratulations! Is there a 10% discount for anyone who wanders in wearing a Fluther shirt?

gooch's avatar

Congratulations! I am curious how long is your wine list?

gailcalled's avatar

@Brian; At last. I’m so relieved. I’ll tell my Brooklyn buddies also.

breedmitch's avatar

@gooch:
Glass:10 red, 10 white (avail. by bottle as well)
Bottle: 7 red, 6 white
!/2 bottle: 10 red, 9 white
Smattering of sparkling, dessert, port, sherry etc.
Plus a full bar with some very lovely and rare ryes. (ok this is a plug, now)
I haven’t a Gewurtz by the glass for you at the moment, but there is an exquisite one by the 1/2 bottle.

@Maude: You’re relieved? I’m frickin’ over the moon! Thanks for the support (and word o mouth)

@Kev: Your friend would be nice but You would be nicer. Get on up here again and I’ll pour the whiskey and we’ll talk Project Camelot. (wink wink)

@Marina: Oh, no. It’s more like 50%!

kevbo's avatar

Right on. You’re on my next NYC itinerary.

gailcalled's avatar

@Harold; What the most expensive wine you sell? I have always had the fantasy of having one taste of a truly rare vintage.During the summer I was 17, I lived with a family who had a vineyard and bottled their own wine, just outside of Beaune. We had table wine with lunch and dinner. Looking back, I bet they were pretty spectacular. Albert Morot

gooch's avatar

Dare we ask for an online menu!

gailcalled's avatar

@urban1:@Welcome to fluther. Winebar (Brookvin) has been up and running for over two years.

Cucina's avatar

I noticed several of the suggestions above are currently being used somewhere. I am from Buffalo, NY and the Wine Thief, Bacchus and Just Vino are there.
One name you might think about is “The Wine Stave”
Best of Luck!

gailcalled's avatar

@Cucina: Welcome to fluther. The wine bar has been up and running for several years and is called “Brookvyn.”

Stay, enjoy, share your cold winter stories with us.

breedmitch's avatar

@Cucina I have been to The Wine Thief in Buffalo, NY. Great place.

gailcalled's avatar

@Cucina: ^^ That modest fellow is the manager of Brookvyn.

(There you are, ducks. Nice to hear from you.)
