Sushi! Cupcakes! Wine Tasting! The Tapas & Wine Bar at Whole Foods.

Sushi! Cupcakes! Wine Tasting!

This little piggy wants wine, this little piggy wants beer, and this little piggy wants cupcakes, sushi, and pizza. What bar could possibly please them all? 

Grocery Store Themed Wine Bar!

The Whole Foods Tapas and Wine bar!  It’s located INSIDE the enormous Arroyo Whole Foods in Pasadena.  If the somewhat cheesy furniture and locale makes you turn up your snobby hipster nose, just think of it as a ‘Grocery Store’ themed Wine Bar. How beat-the-man-at-his-own-game chic is that?

Quaint Furniture

Slap down whatever $$ you want and the bartender will give you as many tastes as he can from the On Tap Wines.

You can get a few expensive ones or a ton of cheap ones for the same price.  Or you can take a chance and order a full glass. I got 2 expensive ones and 2 cheap ones for $10.00. GOOD DEAL!


Don’t like wine? $3.00 artisan beers all day and night. I AM SERIOUS!

Best of all, this is one of the largest Whole Foods in the country. They have a wood fire pizza oven, sushi chefs, a coffee bar, cupcake bakery and smoothie bar all within 10 feet.  You can bring any food over to the Wine Bar and enjoy it with your friends. You could buy a bag of 365 Organic Chocolate Chip Cookies, a spicy tuna roll and a bowl of clam chowder. You could buy two dozen cupcakes and a frozen steak! (eatatyourownrisk). 

Sure Whole Foods products are overpriced for groceries. But they’re UNDER PRICED for bar fare. Plus you don’t have to tip on them.

My one quibble is that there were no tapas at the bar. (Seriously, where were the tapas?) That part of the name is probably a joke.

Bring all your friends! Share some sushi!
