Nectar wine bar closed earlier in the year and now it looks like the sister establishment called Harlem Vintage has definitely shuttered according to details sent in from a Bespoke reader. These two establishments on FDB/8th Avenue and 121st Street were one of the pioneer boutique businesses along the South Harlem commercial corridor and apparently succumbed to the fate of most small businesses. The space is now up for lease for the wine shop and the wine bar eventually became an extension of the adjacent children's learning center. With all that said, the other boutique wine purveyor called the Winery still does a very good business down on 116th Street and a new champagne bar will also be opening further south in the near future: LINK
