Diners enjoy wine and small plates at Oak.

600 Poland Ave., 504-948-9111;
The vibe: Old World wines and live music in a ramshackle, tiki torch-lit backyard space with house-party ambience.
What you'll drink: Wines from small European vineyards, inventive craft cocktails from the upstairs bar.

Faubourg Wines
2805 St. Claude Ave., 504-342-2217;
The vibe: Down-to-earth wine shop with limited seating inside and outdoors, board games, local art and frequent wine tastings.
What you'll drink: Affordably priced wine by the bottle (there are 100 wines priced at less than $15) or glass (eight wines cost $5 a glass).

8118 Oak St., 504-302-1485;
The vibe: An airy, clean-lined and almost uniformly white space straddles the line between minimalist and comfortable — and it gets loud when its patrons drink.
What you'll drink: Wines from well-known (Italy, France), New World (South Africa) and off-the-beaten path (Long Island) regions.

Patrick's Bar Vin
Hotel Mazarin, 730 Bienville St., 504-200-3180;
The vibe: Super swanky jewel box of a space with deep leather seats, soft lighting and courtyard banana plants peeping through the windows.
What you'll drink: Wines from an extensive and diverse list, Belgian beers.

Pearl Wine Company
3700 Orleans Ave., Suite 1C, 504-483-6314;
The vibe: The converted warehouse space features a sleek bar and adjoining liquor store. Get a martini and manicure for $20 on Mondays, then grab a bottle to go.
What you'll drink: Small-production wines, craft beer, creative cocktails.

The Tasting Room
1906 Magazine St., 504-581-3880;
The vibe: This intimate, chandelier-hung space has lounge-worthy couches and a petite courtyard — and Valentino, a Shih Tzu maitre 'd who's known to don a tiny tux.
What you'll drink: The "bubble flight"— a tasting of Champagne, cava and prosecco, or one of the more than 200 wines available by the glass.

Tommy's Wine Bar
752 Tchoupitoulas St., 504-581-1103;
The vibe: Heavy beams, wood paneling and tufted leather wingbacks give this wine bar an upscale vibe. During Tuesday through Thursday ladies' nights, women get bottomless bubbly for $10.
What you'll drink: One of more than 150 wines, Scotch, bourbon.

610 Tchoupitoulas St., 504-324-8000;
The vibe: This wine bar lets patrons sip and sample any of its 120 vintages via a high-tech mechanized pouring system.
What you'll drink: Wine in 1-, 2- or 4-ounce pours dispensed from a self-service system.
