Check out this great article all about Joie De Vine in the Windy City Times

Joie de Vine takes an approach to its cocktail list that I’ve never seen before: it doesn’t have one. You tell the bartender what spirit you want and what flavors you like, and she makes you a custom drink” – Chicago Reader

“Joie De Vine is a cozy neighborhood wine bar, literally on a side street so that only the locals know where to find it. Delightful cocktails, wine and friendly staff make it a hit!” – Enjoy Illinois

“…as the name suggests. But Joe de Vine’s cocktail menu is equally impressive. Well, actually, there’s no cocktail menu. Instead, patrons can simply tell their bartender what kinds of liquor and flavors they like, and voila: a delicious craft cocktail” – Eater Chicago

“This quaint neighborhood wine bar in Andersonville recently uncorked next door to owner Laurie Petrushkevich’s Ravenswood hair salon, Karma. Inside, the bar forgoes width for length, but makes use of its slim facility with striking design. A long wooden bar occupies the length of one wall, and a sitting bench occupies the opposite, both ending at a wall constructed of glass brick that is lit up with different colors. The hardwood floors, exposed brick and wood beam ceilings create a cozy lounge atmosphere that echoes jazz music off the wine bottles lined up along the wall. Wine connoisseurs or novices can sip from a variety of 30 different wines. Patrons can order one of several food flights. The cheese flights can be ordered from two lists, one to accompany red wine and one white. There are also olive and truffle flights. Enjoy your wine inside or sit outside on the new outdoor patio.” – MetroMix

“A recent shift in focus from wines to craft beers and cocktails aims to lure a crowd to this gem hidden on a quiet residential street. Start with something from the 50-option-strong beer list or the couple-dozen wines by the glass and counter with one of the global small plates. Bonus for ladies looking for ladies: You’re in the right place.” – Time Out Chicago

“Friendly neighborhood bar offering small plates, wine, more than 90 rotating craft beers, small-batch spirits, and craft cocktails.” – Chicago Reader
