Double Barrel Wine Bar 2086 First St, Livermore
From the menu and selection of wines you would think you were in New York City, but this neighborhood gem is in downtown Livermore. A very comfortable and friendly feel envelopes you as you dine on tapas containing ingredients from local farmers’ markets, and sip on award-winning wines. Double Barrel offers jazz, blues and neo-soul musicians nightly. You and your girls can make this your own Cheers.
