Stylish Underground Wine Bars

The Riddling Widow Brings a Gothic Edge to a Sophisticated Concept

— October 6, 2015 — Art & Design

The Riddling Widow is a newly opened underground wine bar in New York City. The bar's decor drips in velvet and gold and is adorned with rustic wood features reminiscent of a speakeasy. The interior design is edgy and lush, tending more toward elegant lounge than typical wine bar. The menu ranges from affordable to high-end, specializing in champagne and sparkling wine. Guests can pair their wine selections with oysters, cheese, bread and butter and a range of gourmet salts.
