Our Wein Salon. Our Story.

The Salon...

Since taking over in the Fall of 2018, we have been pealing back the history of Wein Salon, slowly, ever so slowly...

Before it became a gathering place for the consumption of alcohol, it was a hair salon, of which some of the signage is still painted onto the outside walls. The date of change is unknown to us, but we do know that it was turned into a wine bar around 15 to 20 years ago. The original owner of the bar can still be seen in a photo we have on our shelving - nice to know the creator looks down upon us when we serve joyful customers.

She passed away, passing on the bar first to her husband, then over the years multiple owners have added their mark and created another layer of history, until it final fell to us, Myke and Rob in 2018...

Our origins...

We originate from the sunny town of Plymouth on the south west coast of England, from where the Pilgrim Fathers left for America, and where Darwin departed on his journey to the Galapagos and evolution. We have a lot to live up to, and we are endeavouring to at Wein Salon.

Our discovery...

We too, departed our homeland for sunnier climates, and via Moscow and Kyiv, we stumbled upon Berlin, whereupon we also ended up buying Wein Salon. Upon entering it the first time, we fell in love, and we are enjoying our time here, discovering the world of wines, learning more about spirits, and developing new cocktails, and bringing a knowledge (and supply!) of craft beer too...

Our creations...

Although one of our main loves in life (well, for one of us) is food, we are currently not serving tasty morsels of delights due to having no kitchen facilities, but we are using our knowledge of food pairings to experiment with new cocktails, which is hugely enjoyable.
