Recently visited on a lazy weekday afternoon and had a very nice experience. LouElla is a bar and a wine shop with some outdoor seating. Their selection and knowledge of wine (and beer; draft, bottle and can) is top notch. The staff was very friendly and helpful with some great suggestions. Got to meet the owner as well who was also very nice. The shop and bar space is open and relaxed.

Wonderful wine selection, excellent service and our new neighborhood place to grab wine. You can enjoy a glass or bottle at the bar and bring in food from a local restaurant too. Or if you need a cold bottle of wine on the fly just stop by and they have you covered. Visit LouElla and experience it for yourself...Cheers!

Newly opened wine/beer bar and bottle shop in the quickly developing Geer St. row that includes boxcar, Hutchins garage, choice tattoo etc. (they’ve coined the phrase, “ink and drink” but never the other way round).
Daily drink specials in a bright, open space with lots of natural wood. Both wine and beer on tap with plans for small plate offerings to follow.

This place is so fun! Very spacious and classy, lots of options to buy to-go or stay and hang. You can bring your own food in which is a huge plus! The service is fast and the staff are very nice. Plus it’s so beautifully clean and well-kept. An excellent addition to the downtown durham scene!

Great little spot. Stopped in for a bottle of wine to take home but couldn’t resist the charm so my husband and I also had two glasses at the bar. The bar tender and owner(?) made great suggestions. We took a bottle of German Riesling home. Great selection - it was hard to choose! We really enjoyed the laid back environment. Would definitely recommend!

If you like wine, this is a great spot. Also has interesting beer and cider options. It's a little Spartan but there's a feel they're still growing into the space.

An amazing wine, beer, and beverage shop! Try their low-alcohol cocktails, made with vermouths, fortified wines, etc. What a great place!
