If you play your cards right, it is completely possible to hit some of the best spots in Winston-Salem for a drink in and never pay full price. We’ve taken the liberty of showcasing some of the best restaurants and bars in Winston-Salem with a walk through your week, wine-special-style! While this isn’t an extensive list, we’ve curated some of our favorite spots.
Mondays at Mozelle’s
If you’ve ever been to Mozelle’s, you know they have some of the most drool-worthy food in Winston-Salem. Whether you’re ordering their mac & cheese or fried chicken (served with peach preserves - seriously), it’s hard to make a poor ordering choice here. And to top it off, on Mondays, their bottles of wine are half price -- and they have a fantastic wine list. We recommend using those extra $$ to purchase an appetizer or dessert. We don’t think you’ll be sorry (especially if you get the fried pickles).
Tuesdays at Foothills Brewery
Foothills is one of those magical gems of Winston-Salem that really has something for everybody. Whether you are there for some brews, a killer burger (complete with house made condiments), or a really unique entree, we guarantee everybody will find something they love. While they offer several other drink specials throughout the week, we think it’s worth nothing that they have half-off (and overwhelmingly generous) wine pours on Tuesdays. So, if you have a beer-hating friend (yes, we hear these people exist), take them here on Tuesdays.
Wednesdays at West Salem Public House
It’s hard to say enough good things about West Salem Public House (or WSPH as we also call it). They’re the type of place you can curl up with a good book for several hours and feel right at home. Or, our personal favorite, you can bring a few friends and enjoy a board game in their intimate yet social vibe. Plus they are dog friendly, and have an amazing fenced in area in the back, which makes all of our neighborhood local-watering-hole dreams come true. If you pop in on a Wednesday, you can snag a bottle of wine for half price.
Thursdays at 6th and Vine
For an aesthetic that is both classy and approachable, 6th and Vine is our go to choice. The vibe is unmistakably Winston-Salem, and also boasts of one of the coolest outdoor patios around. Their food is also absolutely delicious. Pop over on a Thursday to get a half priced glass of wine and to meet up with friends for a happy hour appetizer.
Fridays at Sofa Lounge
For the perfect way to start your weekend, hit up Sofa Lounge on Friday’s for half of their house red and house white (as well as a $5 Old Fashioned - we’ll branch out from our wine recommendations for this one!). Since they open at 4 pm, it’s also not unreasonable to just pack it up and finish the work day there. That’s a Friday vibe we can support.
Saturdays at Camino Bakery
Dream with us here: You’ve had a wonderful dinner out on the town. You could keep the night going… but it’s been a long week and Netflix is sounding like the perfect vibe for the rest of the night. We suggest stopping into Camino on 4th street to snag dessert and a bottle of wine to go -- and as an added bonus, the wine will be 30% off! Their cheesecake holds a special place in our hearts, if you need a suggestion on the sweet side.
Sundays at Vin205
Is there anything better than Sunday brunch? Visit Vin205 from 10 am to 3 pm to grab a $5 generous pour mimosa -- their orange juice to bubbly ratio is superb - we all know that’s what really matters in a good mimosa -- as well as some of the best brunch in town. Whether you go for a tried and true staples on their menu - or you decide to adventure into their daily specials board, you’re guaranteed to end your weekend right! Our personal favorites are the Farm Burger or the Truffled Egg Croissant.
