Sixth and Vine
209 W. 6th St. W-S

Nestled in the heart of Winston-Salem’s downtown Arts District, you’ll find 6th and Vine Wine Bar & Restaurant, which has been holding down the Arts District near the corner of 6th and Trade for 18 years.

The focus is on eclectic wines that you don’t see everywhere, but also on making wine accessible. The new Winter Wine List will be unveiled this week, featuring many stunning and unique wines.

“I love changing the wine list because tastes and trends are always evolving,” says owner Kathleen Barnes. “We have about 25 wines you can try by the glass, including several reserve wines like the Jordan Cabernet or the Belle Glos Pinot Noir.”

There have been some changes in the kitchen as well. This year, 6th and Vine is thrilled to welcome Niki Farrington as the new executive chef. Niki is perhaps best known in the Triad for her famous Niki’s Pickles and Niki’s Pimiento Cheese, which are both incorporated into the 6th and Vine menu. She brings many other local, farm-fresh products into the picture. Of course, you can still find the Baked Brie and Spicy Crab and Artichoke Dip, but now starters include a Pork Belly and Pimento Cheese Flatbread Pizza.

Niki is always experimenting with your favorite comfort food. Her latest is a fancy-ass sloppy Joe, which features Darcy Farms heritage pork andouille, peppers, onions, sweet-and-spicy goo, melted Swiss, Bosc pears and shaved Brussels slaw on a toasted brioche, topped with Niki’s Pickles Super Sour Dill Chips. The combination of ingredients is never dull — Niki is always pushing the envelope with new twists on old favorites. Customers who have been with us for years are happy to see Niki taking the menu in new and creative directions.

6th and Vine is well known for its enormous outdoor patio, surrounded by brick buildings and vines, but they also have cozy couches for groups to hang out with friends and enjoy wine and charcuterie. It’s a great place to have a cocktail party for the holidays as well!

6th and Vine celebrates 18 years in business in 2023 and as they say, “never a dull moment.”  They are always focusing on brilliant crafted food and beautiful wine, although there are also fun craft cocktails and a unique beer selection. With a myriad of dining areas, a vibrant bar and the famous back patio area with heaters and fire pits, 6th and Vine is a fine place to watch autumn turn to winter.
