the barrel room is more than our name; it is our inspiration.
Tasting wine in a vineyard’s barrel room is a down-to-earth, authentic experience. It is a unique opportunity to taste how after a year on the vine combatting the elements, grapes actually relax and develop their character in their path to become wine. There are no pretenses in the barrel room. It is a “come as you are” space where everyone tends to become fast friends. It is relaxed, casual, and just good fun.
Our appreciation for the art of winemaking inspired us to create a unique locale where wine is the star; but food, music, and art are vital cast members in the experience. Housed in the historic West End Theatre on 4th Street in the heart of downtown Santa Ana, the barrel room is a warm, intimate and relaxing retreat. The original brick walls, the quaint accordion windows, and exposed wood beam ceilings were painstakingly maintained to preserve the history and essence of the West End Theater, while creating our own eclectic bistro ambiance. Whether you choose to relax in one of our our cozy lounges or at the communal bar, we know you’ll feel at home.
We encourage you to explore new varietals, regions, or vintages by the glass, bottle, or in a flight. Someone in your group is not a wine drinker? Bring them along! We also have a selection of craft beers. Hungry? Peruse the menu for an ideal pairing for your wine selection.
Whether you join us with that special someone, friends, colleagues, or come solo… the barrel room is your neighborhood wine bistro at the West End.
