Grape Escape

Modern wine bar soaks up old-fashioned ambiance.


Tremont's Prosperity Social Club feels like a bar from the 1930s. Its art deco style and the oldies on the jukebox pay homage to the good ol' days. And on Mondays, it offers pre-inflation prices by slashing $5 from the cost of every bottle on its extensive — and very modern — wine list. Owner Bonnie Flinner has stocked Prosperity's cellar with many hard-to-find vinos, including the completely organic Lolonis Fume Blanc and the Spanish Ramon Bilbao Rioja. The menu — designed for an "old-school, working-class feel," says Flinner — includes pierogies and a Reuben sandwich served on potato pancakes. There's also a pool table and a room crammed with board games. "It's our tribute to old social halls," says Flinner.
