3. Aux 4 coins du Vin

Facing the dynamic Saint-Pierre square, this elegant wine bar serves a selection of great wines in a setting that juxtaposes modernity with authenticity by offsetting the exposed stone walls with contemporary furniture. At the innovative locale, customers must insert a magnetic card into the Oenomat, a machine that keeps open wine at the right temperature and automatically serves the desired quantity, a process that optimizes both conservation and service. Obviously, the bar staff will be happy to provide you with some advice and accompany you while tasting high-quality international wines. The menu also includes some vintage grands crus: Cheval Blanc, Rayas, Yquem and so on. (Aux 4 coins du Vin, 8 rue de la Devise, website, photo: Facebook)

Between La Grosse Cloche and Fernand-Lafargue Square, Saint-James Street houses a wine bar with an unusual name: Wine More Time. Slightly reminiscent of a Spanish bodega, the bar offers no less than 400 (regularly renewed) wines, from local brands to labels from across the Atlantic. As great connoisseurs, the two managers will be happy to tell you about their favorite options and guide your choices. The menu also includes craft beers and delicious tapas.
