The Citizen Wine Bar - Niche Hospitality

Since inception, The Citizen has been the spot to enjoy wine, cheese and chocolate and to celebrate these perfect pairings without the price tag and fuss that often accompanies them (winner of Wine Spectator’s 2017 Award of Excellence).

As our physical space expanded, allowing for a formal dining room known as The People’s Kitchen, we further developed our menu to apply our expertise and craftsmanship to artisinal products, whether purchased or prepared in-house. Dry-aged steaks, house-butchered charcuterie, burgers, sandwiches, comfort dishes and wholesome monthly entrees are all prepared honestly and offer a sense of place and depth of flavor.

The Citizen’s professional cocktail bar, known as Still & Stir, offers a world-class drink and spirit program featuring balanced, fresh and authentic cocktails properly prepared by our bartenders. The care put into every ingredient we touch is the foundation of The Citizen. This one’s for the people.
