It’s not just us raving about this concept. The Hideaway is receiving 5-star reviews across the board.

“The coolest little, tucked away wine bar just this side of Van Dyke,” wrote local guide Mike Camunas. “HUGE wine selections, eats, knowledgeable staff, hip atmosphere — just a great little find in an area desperate for a variation from the chain places and lack of options. FULL RECOMMEND if you’re into wines and charcuterie.”
