The destination for this evening is obvious. My sister and her family are in town from the heartland, a thousand miles away. They are in the market for some unique cabs and red blends from Washington wineries to warm them during the coming winter on the plains. I'm looking to fill a growler or two with a session IPA that will warm tonight's conversation back at the house. The modern-yet-inviting design and the friendly service of Nectar Wine & Beer definitely leave an impression. Tomorrow, they'll find themselves back in Kendall Yards for massages at the spa down the way, pizza next door at Veraci, and... perhaps just a couple more of those bottles for the winter.

Nectar offers two ways to imbibe the beverages of the gods: first, their downtown venue rotates featured wineries and offers craft beer, catering/events, and a weekday lunch service; second, their fresh modern spot in Kendall Yards offers hundreds of hand-crafted beers and wines, with shelves and shelves of retail bottles to consider taking home.

While strong variety, drastic views of the Spokane River gorge, and modern design abounds in Kendall Yards, Nectar's classic downtown tasting room sits in the historic 1889 Building near Riverfront Park, offering excellent locally sourced food and memorable events.
