Jay Street Gets a Wine Bar

Olympia Wine Bar opened its doors at 54 Jay today, welcoming neighborhood oenophiles and pinot-seeking office dwellers with fresh flowers, candle-lit tables and a well-edited wine list.
In addition to reds and whites by the glass or the bottle, the bar offers specialty cocktails, beer and happy hour specials (like $5 house wines). Food options include cheese and charcuterie plates. According to owner Karen Johnson, who also runs neighboring bar 68 Jay, plans are in the works to expand the menu to crostini and salads.
Right now Olympia Wine Bar is open seven days a week from 4pm-midnight. With its prime location in the heart of the Jay Street corridor, Olympia Wine Bar is poised to become a go-to spot for drinks post-work and pre-St. Ann's ... to say nothing of the HowAboutWe date potential.
