Do you take reservations?

We do not. Seating is first come, first serve.


Are you good for groups?

Our bar is a small, intimate space that fills up quickly, especially on weekends. We may not be the best choice for large groups. And, please, no party buses.


Can AWM serve wine at my reception/pop-up/opening/etc.?

Yes, we can! Please contact Jamie directly at for off-site or catering inquiries.


Is AWM kid friendly?

No. No one under 21 is permitted, no exceptions — this includes infants and toddlers. Like Toffifee, we're too good for kids.


Is your online menu up to date?

Once in a blue moon. Our print menu changes daily, our website menu ... should be considered a sample.


Did you really name your bar after the Catalina Wine Mixer scene in Stepbrothers?

Pow-pow! And, yes, that is Randy Jackson’s signature on the samurai sword above the bar. Because you're not gonna not get Randy Jackson's autograph, right?
