Description:

The Wine Cellar reflects Balena’s Tuscan-rustic atmosphere in an intimate, private setting. The reception area features a dedicated oaken private bar, uniquely back-lit by a tapestry of vintage wines set into the wall and accentuated with an antique cast-iron safe. The dining room offers a distinctive view into Balena’s Italian wine-closet, and is framed by distressed brick archways that add to the Tuscan look. Gather with your friends and family and experience the relaxed yet classy atmosphere in the Wine Cellar. A restaurant with multiple accolades, Balena provides a combination of elegant space and fantastic cuisine. Balena’s private dining menus boast a seasonal selection of locally sourced ingredients in Italian-inspired dishes. Complement your celebration with a handcrafted cocktail from Balena’s Italian mixology program - each cocktail showcases a different Italian bitter. For an intimate celebration full of joy, find yourself at Balena!
