Emy and Brad Sanchez have a good thing going with Sip Wine Bar: A perfect location on the corner of 14th and Galveston, a friendly and knowledgeable staff and not the faintest whiff of pretension. The atmosphere of Sip is relaxed and jovial and that sense of stuffiness that can be found in some wine bars is nowhere to be found.
Emy Sanchez has a good idea of what makes Sip Bend's favorite wine shop.
"We have awesome people working here. We have fun wine flights and a non-intimidating atmosphere. Wine can be a little scary for some people that aren't experienced with it. We wanted Sip to be a cozy, pub-style place where you can drink your wine and never feel intimidated."
Sip continues to have weekly events like Ladies Night Wednesdays, which has become very popular with its different specials and flights. September 1 is also the 2nd Annual Sip Summer Wine-Down, basically a huge customer appreciation party with live music and cheap flights.
Emy Sanchez has the winning formula down: "We keep our wine list short, sweet and change it often. We keep it fun and simple."
