Lala’s Wine Bar

When Dan and I were in Denver looking at apartments we walked past this brand new wine bar a block away from our future apartment.  Unfortunately the bar wasn’t actually open, it was still in the preview stage.  We were definitely disappointed and ended up at Panera.

I have actually gone to Lala’s a number of times since moving in last October and have always enjoyed the ambiance.  If you snag a seat outside this is the view you’d have (those are mountains past the lights and cars).

When Jody was visiting we started our evening outside.  It was perfect for chatting and trying new wines!

Since it wasn’t a busy night, the waitress took a lot of time explaining what wine we should select and why.

She used words like “round” and “square” to describe the flavors and texture of the wine.  I have to admit that I’m no wine connoisseur.  However, we enjoyed each and every glass she brought out for us.  So that’s saying something!

Of course, Jody and I realized early on that our tastes are exact opposite of each others!IMG_1493
We didn’t get any food there, but I have eaten there before.  And while the food is OK.  It wasn’t anything too impressive so my plan is to keep going back for the wine selection (and the happy hour deals!)

It is really fun to have restaurants and bars within walking distance of our apartment!
