Downtown Bend has a new, live jazz music hub, The Wine Shop and Beer Tasting Bar. Every third Saturday, The Wine Shop will present top local and regional jazz artists performing live in an intimate, European type atmosphere. Deco Moon Jazz, featuring local favorite Lori Fletcher on vocals will take the stage on April 19.
On May 17, experience The Lisa Dae Trio featuring guitarist Robert Lee and the refined jazz vocal styling’s of Lisa Dae.
“Great jazz and fine wine and beer in an intimate setting is an experience that bridges European and American cultures, says Melanie Betti, owner of The Wine Shop and Beer Tasting Bar. “With the lineup of top artists booked for every third Saturday, I hope to bring a new “jazz” exposure to Bend where artists and music lovers help support a diverse and thriving downtown culture.”
The Wine Shop and Beer Tasting Bar is a wonderful slice of Europe in downtown Bend. Established in 2006, the shop was created to offer customers the try before you buy concept. Unlike most U.S. wine bars, The Wine Shop and Beer Tasting Bar embraces the Italian way of life with wine and beer; informal, unpretentious and unintimidating.
All of their wine is served out of Riedel Stemware. All beer is served out of the brewery glass or the recommended stemware to highlight aromas and flavors. They feature 30 plus wines by the glass and taste and over 70 craft, Belgian and international beers and cider on our menu with 16 taps offering the highest quality draft Belgian, European and regional craft beers. They are the only bar in downtown Bend serving Belgian beers on draft. They have the widest selection of wines from around the world and ones you won’t find in typical wine bars. They also feature a selection of fine sake and sake cocktails.
All performances is at 8pm with music until 10:30pm. Admission is $10 and seating is limited. It’s recommended purchasing advance tickets or arriving early for the best seats.
