Noir – Opening Soon
Oenophiles of the inner west will be chuffed to hear that Paddington will soon score a new wine bar when Noir opens on Given Terrace in May. The brainchild of The Black Lab Coffee Co.’s Sam Holman and Eli Rami, Noir has been an idea the two have kicked about ever since opening cosy coffee spot Blackout on Latrobe Terrace in 2019. The new after-dark venture will see Eli source and curate a selection of drops that encompasses classic vintages and new-world varieties, with an overarching focus on minimal-intervention winemaking processes. Although the wine list will be fairly compact, the crew is eager to show off a selection of boutique and hard-to-find labels – the kind of vino that you won’t be able to find at your local bottle shop. Noir will also keep stomachs lined with a charcuterie menu favouring morsels sourced from local producers. Further details are being kept tightly under wraps, but rest assured that we’ll have more details when they come to light.
