We chose to serve all of our wines from the tap instead of bottles to keep prices low, reduce waste, and make sure the wines in your glass are as fresh as the day they were kegged.

We serve a rotating menu of seasonal small plates. We believe that good food does not need to be overwrought or fancy and that wine should be exciting, never intimidating.

At Lois, they never are.

Lois is the creation of two friends with a simple shared idea: when it comes to wine and food, accessibility and quality are not mutually exclusive. We’re obsessed with our adopted neighborhood of Alphabet City, and we love sharing great wine and creative food with our friends and neighbors on Avenue C (also called Loisaida Avenue).
