The San Fernando Valley wine bar boom continues apace, with another player debuting this Friday. Buvette hails from the Tipsy Cow and Thirsty Merchant’s founders, landing on Ventura Boulevard.
Not to be confused with the New York City wine bar of the same name in the West Village, this LA newcomer will showcase unique wines by the glass and bottle with charcuterie and cheese bites in a casual and stylish room. Opening a wine bar in the Valley is slowly becoming a tried and true model, with a handful of favorites opening in the neighborhood since 2015, including Augustine, Arcwood, and Mirabelle.
Buvette’s interior seats slightly under 20. The retractable front window will make it easy to sample the latest wine inventory, while watching life go by on Ventura Boulevard. Buvette means taproom, bar, or tavern in French, and this smaller space was repurposed regularly over the years.
Buvette’s hours will be Sunday to Tuesday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., Wednesday and Thursday from 5 p.m. to midnight, and open slightly later on Friday and Saturday until 2 a.m.
Buvette. 15005 Ventura Blvd. Sherman Oaks, CA
