Vera is an intimate, chef-driven wine bar offering an exquisite selection of seasonally rotating wines from Spain, Europe, and The Americas, alongside Spanish sharable plates presented simply yet elegantly. In the spirit of enjoying food and wine at the table with others, Vera’s focus is on quality, artisanal products, made and presented with great pride and care. The warm and inviting décor reflects the essence of Spanish hospitality, including a deep commitment to food and family. Run by restaurant industry veterans Elizabeth and Mark Mendez, this ‘old meets new world’ wine bar welcomes guests to enjoy a piece of Spain by plate and the globe by glass.

At Vera we embrace food, wine and hospitality as if we were welcoming you into our home, to do so we do not take reservations and invite you to join us at anytime for Spanish cuisine and worldly wine.
