SYMPOSIUM takes its name from the ancient Greco-Roman parties of abundant wine, conversation, and entertainment. Our guests may enjoy great wines by the glass, flight, or bottle, selecting from a list of boutique California, French, and Australian wineries. We have taken the guesswork and the attitude out of wine, with light and humorous categories such as “Lip Smacking” and “Smooth Talkers,” as well as short descriptions of every wine on our menu. Serious wine lovers will appreciate the Spiegelau crystal, as well as the monthly wine tastings and seminars, while everyone will appreciate the artisan cheeses and chocolates, all of which are available for sale in our retail section. The most recent addition to Irvine’s Park Place retail district, Symposium Wine Bar provides the perfect beginning or ending to a night of movies, shopping, and dining. Indeed, the perfect new “neighborhood bar” for the wine lovers of Orange County and beyond.
