Puerto Vallarta - As high season begins to wind down, you might find yourself with more time to relax and enjoy the good life. Locals "in the know" frequently take some time to visit Costantini Wine Bar, a cool oasis in the heart of downtown Vallarta.
|"Strawberries, cherries and an angel's kiss in spring. My summer wine is really made from all these things..."|
Situated in the middle of the internationally famous Café des Artistes gallery of dining experiences, this trendy meeting place offers an informal, yet sophisticated, setting and an unparalleled combination of cocktails, fine wines, a delicious menu of boutique tapas and live music nightly.
On Thursday evenings, Costantini offers hour-long, complimentary, bilingual wine tasting seminars, hosted by a qualified sommelier, and featuring some of the fine international wines from their award-winning wine list that boasts 350 bottles of wine that are also served by the glass.
During the entire month of May, if you stop in for a copa, whether it be wine or your favorite cocktail, your second drink is on the house. After you've cooled off, stay for dinner, or try one of their fabulous desserts accompanied by a specialty coffee.
Seducing and entertaining guests with its modern and stylish ambience, Costantini Wine Bar is devoted to the fun-loving, eclectic spirit of Café des Artistes. The crowd is fashionable, but not glitzy, making it a nice place to enjoy live nightly music that ranges from hot blues and jazz guitar to romantic piano music.
Open daily from 6-11:30 pm, Costantini Wine Bar is located at Guadalupe Sanchez 740 in downtown Puerto Vallarta. For more information call 222-3228, or visit http://www.cafedesartistes.com/costantini - and stay tuned for the new Cafe des Artistes website, which will be unveiled this summer.
