Winehot - Kingsland

With its unassuming shop-face and concealed behind dark curtains this little French oasis is one of Kingsland’s best kept secrets and the perfect venue for a sweet little rendezvous. With its dark painted walls, candlelit tables and vintage chandeliers hanging from the bar ceiling it’s not so much a stop along your way as a great place to settle in.

Owned and managed by Julian, a Bordeaux native, Winehot offers an affordable French experience that won’t break the bank and- true to its name- boasts a fantastic selection of wines. Their award winning wine list offers drops from Spain to France, Portugal and of course New Zealand, alongside an assortment of cocktails including their most popular choice ‘The Parisian’ (a delicate combination of Gin, Vermouth and Liqueur De Cassis). If you’re unsure of what to order (or trying to impress your date with a good drop) put yourself in Julian’s capable hands. He’s a friendly wealth of knowledge and will steer you in the right direction.

In addition to fantastic vinos they also offer beautifully presented, honest French fare. Traditionally prepared and using their own recipes they will cheerfully try to accommodate any special dietary requirements you (or your date) may have.

Winehot is one of my favourites. It’s intimate, cosy and authentic; with plush stools and cool tunes. It’s a popular spot for couples (without being too crowded), and also offers a nice little courtyard out the back. It’s deliciously French and not at all pretentious. And best of all it’s open ‘til late. Très chic.
