Bottles is an Italian wine bar from the co-founders of Bottles & Battles in Mercato Metropolitano. Teaming up with SOOD Family, who look after the kitchen, Bottles is where your relationship with wine is taken up a notch or two. It’s a beautiful spot, with exposed bricks, vintage fruit crates, distressed leather stools and a gold and blue theme. The wine list, as you’d imagine is extensive, but you’ll be in good hands as every member of the Bottles team is a sommelier in their own right. From sparkling rose, a crisp and sharp Malibran ‘Sottoriva’ Col Fondo Nv Italy Veneto, paired with cacio and pepe rice balls with pecorino and mozzarella to handmade spaghetti all’ amatriciana paired with an Antonio Camillo Morellino Di Scansano, a strong but not heavy red, the wine and food is perfectly matched.
