cocktails, wine bars & snacks

our favorite spots to grab a drink and a small plate after a day of sightseeing, shopping, or just lounging at the beach.

amuse wine bar | map it
purchase a prepaid wine card and choose from 80 different bottles of wine – you pour your own from amuse’s self-serve dispensers. great appetizers and small plates, too! we recommend going on mondays or wednesdays between 5-8 pm, when the wine cards are 40% off. 21 and over.
