enophiles, re­joice! Shang­hai’s fa­mous Dr Wine has set up prac­tice along Al­ger St in Pobla­cion, and clinic hours ex­tend well into the early morn. The dimly-lit wine and restau­rant bar gives off a cosy, in­dus­trial feel. Tex­tured wood ve­neer sur­faces (these were culled from a cen­tury-old Pam­panga house) and hand­picked Machuca tiles add to its char­ac­ter.

The place is owned and run by som­me­lier Vin­cent Landais and his wife Eva Marzan-Landais. Their well-stocked cel­lars of­fer myr­iad op­tions of Old and New World wines that suit ev­ery pref­er­ence and bud­get, as well as liquors, spir­its, and beers for those who may want to try other things. De­li­cious eats such as sand­wiches, and cheese and char­cu­terie plat­ters cour­tesy of Chef Julien Le­comte are also avail­able. With all these on the menu, there’s no bet­ter place to wine the night away.

IN VINO VER­I­TAS Dr Wine’s rus­tic, in­dus­trial in­te­ri­ors are per­fect for a night cap
