The newly opened Marvin, a wine bar disguised as a French bistro, has quickly become the after-hours hang for LA’s wine crowd and Hollywood’s pretty young things mainly due to co-owner and wine director Max Marder. The old-world-centric list is heavy on the classics, but still offers a smattering of farther-flung wines and a solid by-the-glass list. If you’re looking for value, the bottle list is full of gems under $75. And if you ball so hard, there’s a nice little selection of grower champagne as well as Burgundy and Barolo—with a handful of wines offered across multiple vintages.

ProTip
Marvin’s cheese plate is just as adventurous as the wine. Ask the bartender to recommend some wines for your plate and you’ll have a winning flight.
