And now, for a couple of iconic spots in the city that are returning after quite some time. They might not be entirely new, but there’s certainly a lot of anticipation surrounding their comebacks. First off, there’s The Wine Bar at Provence Marinaside, which is known for its giant selection of wines. Guests can sip on over 250 domestic and international wines total, including 125 sips by the glass.

Where: 1167 Marinaside Crescent
