Find your new favorite pour in this pint-sized wine bar

By Catherine Smart

The sister restaurant to Galley Beach, this Nantucket newcomer is making a big impression from its little garden-level digs on Broad Street. Pass through a tiny green door down to the cozy wine bar that serves simply incredible drinking food: tinned seafood, cured meats, raw bar, and caviar. The tightly curated wine list may have some special bottles you’ve never heard of; thankfully most are available by the glass, so you can taste your way through new regions and styles. They also serve local craft beers and interesting ciders — this is a place to push your palate. With low lighting, a playful design with wild wallpaper, and a warm vibe, Afterhouse manages to be both intimate and inviting.
