In Greek, Paréa means a gathering of friends, and the billing for this San Francisco wine bar is quite apropos. The dim lighting and bold, primary-colored interior make for a warm atmosphere that brings intimacy to an open floor plan. Simple furnishings, spartan decor and Latin rhythms are the signature of a subtle, Mission-chic vibe designed for imbibing with good friends rather than impressing out-of-town guests. While the wine list is extensive, don't come looking for your California favorites. The focus here is on Mediterranean vintages and features many rarities from Spain, Italy and Greece. Prices are reasonable for a bottle, glass or tasting, and a small menu chalked on the wall offers light starters and salads to whet the appetite. Grab a booth in one of the windows up front for great people watching and a view of Mission district nightlife kicking into high gear along the Valencia corridor.
Come to Parea Wine Bar and Cafe to experience a different type of scene where familes and friends get together to sit around a table full of Mediterranean home cooked plates paired up with an amazing glass of wine.
