My half of the bill (including tip) $38.00
So one of my friends told me about this really interesting wine bar in Culver City called Vinum Populi. I finally went to last night and I have to say, I am in love. I want to hang out there every day.
It’s different from most wine bars because it has wine dispensing machines that pour wine by the ounce. Here’s how it works – first, you fill up your wine card with money at the bar. Then you head over to the machines, and the price per ounce is listed above each bottle. Once you’ve decided on a wine, stick in your wine card in the machine and wine is dispensed by the ounce. If you need help picking a wine, the staff is really knowledgeable and can make recommendations.
I love it because you’re able to try many different wines without spending a lot of money. You can also try some really expensive wines, but because it’s only an ounce they are not very expensive.
The food was amazing as well, we ordered Insalata Pera, Caprese Pizza, and the cheese plate. They also have happy hour that lasts until about 8:00 with free cheese, salami, and bread – amazing!!!! If you don’t believe me, check it out on Yelp!
