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.

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).
