If you’ve ever wanted to experience a 1920’s Speakeasy complete with chic suede loveseats, oversized chandeliers and an open loft that provides a VIP sensation, the Wine Loft of Naples can take you there. The sophisticated yet comfortable environment is great for everything from business meetings, social gatherings and romantic occasions.
The Wine Loft offers a list of more than 300 bottles of the world’s finest wines. Although the list includes upscale bottles that can cost up to $500 each, guests who are looking for a more casual experience will find that the menu offers an assortment of high-quality drinks and meals at a delightfully affordable rate.
When Michael and Sarah Kearney first opened the Wine Loft in January of 2013, they wanted to create a place for Naples residents to have a “VIP feeling” but in an atmosphere that isn’t stuffy. The actual loft in the restaurant does just that. It can accommodate up to 30 people and is available to customers without a fee or reservation.
“You go up there and you can overlook the crowd,” Sarah Kearney said. “You feel special, it is a great thing. My husband and I have always dreamed of having a place to enjoy wine and food with friends in a relaxing, upscale atmosphere. Hopefully we filled a niche that was missing in our area.”
In addition to a classy atmosphere, the Wine Loft of Naples also offers fun events and discounts.
“The atmosphere is very relaxed and laid back,” Kearney said. “It’s a lot of fun in a unique setting. We have live bands Tuesday through Sunday and we have no cover charge. We want people to come and enjoy the music and dance, and with the couches and everything you feel like you’re at home.”
