An offbeat, hip little wine bar that's popular with straights, gays, and everyone in between, Venus de Milo
(38 Martin Luther King Jr. Ave.
, 912-447-0901) is along one of the main thoroughfares into downtown Savannah, close to City Market and a number of hotels and restaurants. With a well-chosen selection of wines by the glass, cordials, cognacs, and high-quality spirits, this is a prime spot for drinks before or after dinner, or to hang out with an eclectic bunch. There are two floors, and the upstairs area leads to an air porch.
