Downtown Wilmington welcomes new upscale bar

Another bar downtown? It's true and local Wilmington leaders are giving it a thumbs up. They say this new upscale wine bar brings a different taste to the downtown bar scene.

Fortunate Glass is anything but "different" or "innovative". They're a few really wealthy people riding the coat tail of plenty of other bars/restaurants in the downtown area. Wasn't the same space a wine bar the previous 2 businesses. The Melting Pot is a gorgeous space that slightly older and caters to older crowds. Bottega has been on Front Street many years with an older crowd, extremely similar menu and wine so has Cape Fear Wine and Beer. I guarantee Saffo never stepped foot in either of those places. As usual, it's all about money in this town. Definitely not about supporting local business or claiming a new innovative place to go.
