Introducing Joséphine Wine Bar

New wine bar, Joséphine, opens on Spring St.

On Tuesday, August 14, Joséphine Wine Bar opened its doors to the public. This quaint wine bar sits just a few blocks from King St. on the corner of Spring St. and Coming St.

Owner Jill Cohen envisions a place where people can come and get a good glass of wine any day of the week. The wine list, designed by Wine Director and Advanced Sommelier Ashley Broshious, features a rotating selection of more than 20 wines by the glass and 120 bottle offerings. The list is designed for people to pop in after work to grab a quick drink with friends or to linger over a bottle and celebrate a special occasion.

If you’re hungry, Joséphine offers a selection of small plates to be shared. Chef Shaun Connolly brings together modern cuisine sourced from local ingredients and inspired by global flavors.
