Like a Prada-clad sophisticate roaming around with a purse jammed full of Twinkies and Gummi Bears, Bev's Wine Bar is a charming study in contradictions. The place has a gorgeous view of soaring Minneapolis, a prettily modern and understated decor, a lovely beer list, accommodating service, a quiet, conversational vibe, and a smart set of regulars who respond well to the spare bruschetta-and-salad menu, lovely view, and flattering candlelight. But if "wine bar" usually means sommeliers gushing passionately about this vintage and that cru, Bev's has only a modest list composed largely of the young, the fruity, and the inexpensive. Connoisseurs are left to wonder, Is that all there is?, while bar-hoppers and fans of the Warehouse District admire this funny lass for what she has, not for what she lacks.
