For the love of wine
Located on Northcote Road, 5 minutes from Clapham Junction, Vagabond Wine Bar is a welcome hideaway for all wine lovers.
Stocking wines from all over the world, Vagabond allows you to while away a Sunday afternoon or a Friday night date tasting a wide selection of amazing wines.
Upon arrival you have to put down a £5 deposit on a Vagabond card and add as much money to the card as you think you'll drink your way through (I would say that £20 is a safe bet to start off with). You can then wander around the bar, reviewing tasting notes, exploring from spicy reds to dry whites and everything in between (they even do champagne!). If you can't decide from the tasting notes alone, the staff are really knowledgeable and always eager to give you a recommendation. Once you've made your wine selection you can then select either 25ml, 125ml or 175ml to be dispensed from the taps and the money is taken off your Vagabond card.
The best bit: you can purchase a charcuterie board to accompany your wine flight.
