Claret Wine Bar :: NYC Wine Bars

Owners Jean Clancy and Niall Costello opened Claret in December 2008 with the goal of creating a space that combines the elegance and sophistication of a New York City wine bar with a laid back vibe of a neighborhood joint, so that the residents of Sunnyside would feel welcome to stop by whenever they felt like a meal or a glass of wine. With their large floor-to-ceiling windows looking out onto Skillman Avenue and their welcoming, homey atmosphere created by plished oak floors and exposed brick walls adorned with art, it's hard to pass by Claret Wine Bar without stopping in for a glass of wine.

Their long wine list is divided by country, with bottles from France, Spain, Italy, South America, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and the US. Artisan cheeses and meats are available for nibbles, while salads and pizzas round out the menu for those seeking something bigger. On Tuesday, Wednesday, and Saturday nights from 8 to 11pm, Claret features local jazz and bluegrass musicians, including Tosh Sheridan, Sephira, Mark Wade and the Dang-It Bobbys.
