Marquette has bars. Marquette even has a cigar bar opening (to a very select few who wish to buy in). But what Marquette didn't have until recently was a wine bar. That's changed thanks to the opening of Zephyr
, located on Front Street across from Getz's in the downtown district.
Zephyr has a huge selection of wine thanks to the business relationship with Everyday Wines, located on Baraga Avenue. But it's not just wines they are offering. There's beer and, eventually, there will be a coffee bar as well.
Don't think that's enough to satisfy? Well, feel free to try their traditionally cured meats and cheeses, which are selected by the owners through the same taste-testing process that they use to choose their wines. Additionally, Zephyr also offers up small plates, soups and desserts, all of which are homemade and ready for the discerning palate.
Zephyr Wine Bar and Tap Room is open from Tuesday to Sunday from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m. They also have an area known as The Cellar available for private events and meetings.
