Wes Miller has lived all over the country but his favorite neighborhood is right here in Tampa: Seminole Heights.

In the mid '70s, he was director of food services for a company that served more than 400 colleges and universities.

In the '90s he became a real estate investor.

Three years ago, he decided to take the experiences from both positions and open his own business in the "neatest neighborhood."

This summer, the interior design and menu ideas he's been brainstorming will finally come to fruition as the The Wine Bar Seminole Heights located at 6428 N Florida Ave.

"We're going to have great programming. It will be different from what other wine bars have, in both interior design and what we present," Miller said.

Every Tuesday night the wine bar will have a speciality dinner called 30 for 30. It will be limited to 30 people, cost $30 and feature a three course meal with three different wines.

On the second Saturday of each month, there will be an introduction to a new wine or champagne, accompanied with a charcuterie.

For example, the Columbia Restaurants' Andrea Gonzmart will introduce Spanish wines.

On the third Saturday of each month, the bar will host a gardening class with wine.

Every Sunday there will be local, live musicians.

The menu will feature stuffed mushrooms, bruschetta, a smoked salmon platter, baked jalapeno peppers, stuffed grape leaves, charcuterie and cheese and more.

The Wine Bar Seminole Heights will share the space with Mikey's Cafe and Deli .
