Ara Wine Bar Restaurant Review

: Situated in the Meatpacking District, this diminutive wine bar draws locals and those who like a quiet ambience to go along with their glasses of mid-priced wine, beer and handcrafted cocktails. Go straight to the Indian-inspired back room for a more cozy setting: a large wraparound couch, beset with big pillows, and small candlelit tables may inspire a few more rounds of vino. The bar also serves potent sangrĂ­a.
