One side is a smartly curated wine shop and the other is a warm and convivial wine bar and restaurant. Together, it is a prime opportunity to drink something wonderful paired with salads and shared plates, cheese and charcuterie. Any bottle from the retail side is available in the dining room at retail price plus $10 corkage. Given that most restaurants have a 70 percent markup, this is a deal. In addition, Brix 33 showcases 30 wines by the glass and four Wine Station machines that hold four bottles each. You preload a wine card with whatever denominations you see fit, then self-serve 1-, 3- or 5-ounce samples. For those who want to learn, there are Wednesday evening tastings in the shop 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., with discounts if you want to buy a bottle of those tasteables. Restaurant hours: 4-11 p.m. Tue.-Thur., until midnight Fri.-Sat., until 10 p.m. Sun.; Wine shop opens at 11 a.m.
