Not technically a winery but a bottle shop offering a large selection of beer and wine to "grab and go". If you staying at Palate to enjoy the entertainment or outdoor space, it has one of the coolest atmospheres to relax and share a glass of wine or fine selection of craft beers.

Hidden down an alley near Front St. Brewery and Slainte Irish Pub - this speakeasy will bring you back to the days of prohibition. Greatest bourbon selection, atmosphere and although everyone is welcome (over 21) if you are dressed up, you will blend in better.

What makes this place unique is its location. Atop the 5th level beside the city stage, if you find this place before the sun sets, you will not be disappointed. Overlooking most of wilmington, this perch will show off most of downtown, the river, the battleship and provide you one of the most beautiful sunsets.

You didn't come downtown Wilmington to watch a movie you could have seen in your neighborhood, however, if you are craving popcorn with melted butter and a feature film and the RedBox or Netflix isn't cutting it, the carmike would be the closest to downtown to pick up new releases.

Do you like antiques? Between 5th and 7th street along Castle you will find the New Castle Arts District which is lined with antique shops. A great way to spend an afternoon. If on that side of town, I recommend Jesters Cafe for lunch or walk over to Waterline Brewing (under the cape fear bridge) for a beverage.
