Local Spotlight: Firehouse Wine Bar & Shop
At the corner of Mobile’s Bienville Square, on St. Francis Street, stands the Firehouse Wine Bar & Shop. With an extensive wine and beer list, relaxing atmosphere, and friendly service, this is a great place for date night or catching up with friends.
Wine and Beer Selection
This local destination offers over 300 varieties of wine to choose from. You can order by the glass or by the bottle, or even grab a bottle to go. Can’t choose one variety to try? Experience several by ordering a wine flight. The friendly and knowledgeable owners and bartenders are also happy to help you choose if you’re still not sure what to order.
While you’ll find a couple European varietals on the wine list, Firehouse Wine Bar & Shop focuses on wines from the southern hemisphere. Most come from vineyards in South Africa, South America, Australia, and New Zealand.
Trying to please a crowd? If there’s someone in your party who doesn’t like wine, they’re in luck. Over 20 local and craft beers are available on tap and in bottles for guests to enjoy. Plus, when you get hungry, you can order small plates to snack on while you sip.
About the Location
Owners Andre Lotz and Margo Alderton got married at a vineyard in South Africa’s Constantia Valley, near where Lotz was born. That image-enjoying wine by a southern coastal city-stayed with them.
In 2014, they finally realized their dream. They renovated the historic Mobile Hook & Ladder Company No. 1 building, turning it into Firehouse Wine Bar.
When you step inside this hidden gem, you notice the 24-foot copper bar, which was custom built for the wine bar. There’s also a semi-private back room, which is great for private events. The décor and service come together to create a relaxing atmosphere, which offers sophistication without being overpriced.
