Septime La Cave

On a night so cold that my glasses immediately fogged up upon entering the building, I met up with T for drinks and snacks at Septime’s new offshoot bottle shop / wine bar.

Let’s get our expectations straightened out: Septime La Cave is not the kind of wine bar to which one goes for dinner. One goes for some nice little nibbles and a glass or two of beautiful wine.

There are bottles, which can be had for a €7 corkage fee, lining the walls. No tables to speak of, but a bit of counter space to work with.

All in all, it’s a pleasant place to stop by on the way to somewhere or on the way from somewhere, but not necessarily a destination in itself.

    Sounds like a great find. I am always on a lookout for such in-between places.

      There are certainly worse ways to pass a free hour.

    Did you get there early? I heard that after 7pm it’s almost impossible to get in.

      I got there at around 9pm and there weren’t any seats left, but most people were standing anyway. It wasn’t super crowded and I got a piece of counter right away. Maybe it was a lucky fluke?
