More than your average wine bar
By Rebecca Evans
You’d never suspect a wine bar, let alone, so much more, tucked into this 1920’s house along Main Street in Meridian, Idaho. It’s the so much more that grabs you. The main dining room rests near the bar as seating continuously unfolds, extending to a side dining room, and onto an outdoor patio that wraps three-fourths of the house. An oak tree, perhaps a hundred years old, “covers’ the patio as though Mother Nature opened an umbrella sprinkled with twinkling lights. On the other side of the bar, is a more intimate area for guests who prefer quieter conversation instead of live music.
A hidden staircase, near the latrine, weaves up and into a cigar room, much like anelegantDC batcave for those who want a smoke, a drink, a meal, or a hideout. This roomis where many of the “regulars” land as the night winds down at Divine Wine Cork and Fork.
