Bar Bordeaux, the sexy, yet unpretentious, new wine bar on the corner of 29th and Madison honors thirteen centuries of wine making with a highly approachable and spirited wine list. A collaborative effort between the Collective Hospitality Team and Bordeaux Region, Bar Bordeaux hopes to introduce wine drinkers today to some of the most interesting and innovative wines from the 8,000 chateaus of Bordeaux. Its lighthearted food menu features a perfect balance of savory and sweet nibbles.
Renowned artist and NYC native, Jeremy Penn, whose paintings often focus on celebrities and the celebrity culture created the bar’s centerpiece paying homage to French actress Brigitte Bardot and is appropriately titled “Hot Lips of Brigitte Bardot”. A series of chandeliers hang over the space casting a light glow on those sipping wine below. The room has a whimsical feel that can be best described as vintage French meets Andy Warhol in lace garters. It can accommodate 30-seated guests and over 50 in standing room.
Those seeking a more robust dining experience can head next door to Millesime, the seafood brasserie also by Collective Hospitality. Collective Hospitality also owns and operates several wine bars in San Francisco, most notably Aquitane, Blanc et Rouge and Rouge et Blanc.
Bar Bordeaux is located within at 92 Madison Avenue at The Carlton Hotel. It is open Monday-Saturday from 4pm—11pm. Phone number is 212-889-7100. For a peak into the menu, take a look at the image gallery. Full review coming soon.
