Lausanne's latest wine bar is worth seeking out.
Adding to the increasingly funky area around Rue Marterey near the Bessières bridge, this small wine bar opened in autumn 2014. Its two Italian owners present punters with a menu of five Swiss and five Italian wines that change monthly, cannily offering their clientele a reason to visit at least 12 times a year. At first the rather minimalist interior decor seems a bit characterless, but with little space to play with it was perhaps wise not to over-fill it. Still, the exposed brickwork adds interest, plus the bar’s increasing popularity and friendly staff create a warm atmosphere. The owners – both wine experts – are on hand to direct you towards your preferred tipple, and drinks are served with a small charcuterie sharing plate – always a welcome touch. It’s reached via a cobbled courtyard which will hopefully come in handy for outdoor seating in summer.
