Some friends told me that i should try this place so Vino had already begun to create a buzz for me. I took a mellow Friday and made a date with my curiosity to scour the place out. When i walked into the area of this upscale lounge i was reminded of the Virginia Highlands or Downtown Decatur, other popular eating and playing places in the building city of Atlanta, GA. New fancy town homes and houses, eclectic restaurants. Yeah i could do this. It looked like someone took notice and built this part of the city up to appeal to the appealing. That night I was the one to appeal and appealed to I was.

Instead of going on and on I will just point a few things out. Hopefully this will pique your interest enough to go check it out.
*wonderful appetizers and sides (chicken fajitas, fillet mignon skewers, spinach feta salad, are a MUST, etc.) that are very affordable. Check out the menu and their website here.

*Vino is Italian and Spanish for Wine so YES they have a large and different/expansive wine selection. Vino's take on the classic, Sangria, which they home-make with real pieces of fruit, wine and juice is c'est magnifique!

*elegant soft serene colors of browns and gold give the presence of royalty and comfort. There are tables and settee sofas to talk, lounge and dine on.

*small and intimate and classy but not stiff. Not ideal for very large parties. But great for friends meeting for happy hour or a lil romantic date. Boyz, she'll be impressed and you will get a second rendezvous!

*friendly staff!

*can hold private parties (lovely for a bridal shower!) in the banquet/wine shop room, BUT it is costly to rent!

*black owned

*live jazz on Friday and Saturday evening

*eclectic upscale area of HWY 20 and blvd/memorial dr.

Weekly events:

Bottomless Mondays- Choose from a selection of 40 wines by the glass every Monday.$20 per person

So check it out! For the chic casual or the person with a lotta change in their pocket! Unless you are naked you won't feel out of place, because if you are there people may assume you have money and that's just fine. It just looks like that kind of place. So go on and get away with it and dine with the illusion. Just park the pinto down the block! It'll be our secret. Shhhhhhhhhh...


The Juice ReportER (Sangria juice...feelin' it!)



  1. I must say I really enjoyed everything about Vino Libro in my visit. The food was on point and the meal did not break the bank! You all know what I mean. Sipping on my fine white wine eating some good food and listening to some live jazz. Somebody stop me please! Please check out this spot you will definitely be in awe.

  2. u said it like a pro who's been there babyyyyyyyyy!!

  3. When I first saw your posting for Vino Libro, I nearly flipped when I saw that they held a weekly wine tasting event every Wednesday. I saw the posting Monday and attended that Wednesday, it was my first wine tasting event and it was absolutely wonderful! The atmosphere is very laid back and in the back of the establishment there is a super sexy lounge area. I wasn't able to enjoy any of their mini entrees due to the fact that I was so intrigued with the wine tasting, but I will be able to try them this week because I plan on being in attendance again this Wednesday! Ooowww! Thanx


That's what I have to say. So what do YOU think? I thrive on conversation and insight. Agree or disagree or digress and leave a comment and express thyself..
