Inman Park Grape closing
According to the AJC, the Inman Park Grape, opened by Usher a couple years back, is closing. I live quite close to the Grape, and I love me some wine, and yet, I only went twice, so I'm not too surprised. That being said, it's a shame to see what was a good concept - wide variety of wines in a user friendly format - flounder. I always felt like the overly purple decor was just too corporate chain feeling. It lacked the warmth and coziness I covet in a wine bar. I'll take a worn, over-stuffed sofa any day over bright purple bar chairs. Oh well, at least Krog is still in walking distance, and even better the boyfriend's wine collection is mere steps away from my own comfy sofa!
