Luxe Winebar (fka Luxe Modern Wine & Cocktails) at 190 Main Street in Westport will soon re-open on under new ownership. Former owner Robert Reilly has passed the torch to new owner, Dave Morton. The two are working together to make improvements to the menu and interior of the bar, while keeping things the way patrons liked it. “We had a loyal customer base that was disappointed to see LUXE had closed temporarily,” said former owner Robert Reilly. “Dave and I hope they’ll come back and find LUXE better than ever.”
Morton is working to make the setting warmer and friendlier, plus adding on menu items to complement the existing cheese and charcuterie. “The cheese and charcuterie have been well received,” Dave Morton says. “I want to give people even more options to choose from. New items will include desserts and chocolates from neighboring businesses, plus other wine-friendly noshes like hummus and pita chips, and olives.”
“I will continue the craft cocktails and the wines that regular customers love. Plus, we will also be having special events at LUXE,” Morton continued. “I’m working on bringing acoustic musicians in, plus partnership events with Tastefully Simple.”
When re-opened LUXE Winebar will resume their previous hours: Monday – Thursday from 5 p.m. to 1 a.m., and weekends from noon to 1 a.m. LUXE. Call 203-349-5039 to hear about events, or to ask about renting LUXE Winebar for private functions. LUXE Winebar is wheelchair accessible and offers free Wi-Fi.
