Bottega Wine Bar Pops the Cork

Good wine, good times and a few good bites are the theme of the new Bottega Wine Bar (4455 Lyons Rd., 954-969-1744) in Coconut Creek.

Proprietors Simon Bai and Faron Shiem have put together a stylish space that’s home to more than 100 different labels of wine from New World and Old, with about half of them served by the glass. There’s also a roster of two-dozen craft beers, a list expected to double soon, plus a small menu of finger food.

Bottega seats 60 indoors and out, and features a lounge and rotating art collection. Live music every night too; take your pick of jazz, reggae, Latin fusion, and good ol’ rock -n- roll.
