Wine Adventures with the 2 Dollar Wine Connoisseurs: The View at 1900 : The shortest Wine Bar Review Ever
The View at 1900 in Long Beach
(This was the view we were looking forward to)
We got a Living Social Groupon for Easterfor a good deal at a brand new wine bar in Downtown Long Beach called The View at 1900.It looked really nice online.It had a sunset view overlooking the ocean with a good menu and the new wine machines, the kinds that work when you buy a card and then sample a whole bunch of wines.So I got off extra early from work and we drove on down there only to find out that it had already shutdown.Shutdown??But it supposedly just opened.We don’t knowwhy or how it just wasn’t there anymore. It had just opened in March of this year 2014 but was already closed by May of 2014, with no explanation when we tried to redeem our Groupon??
We're wondering if the location which was in a residential apartment tower doomed it. They probably did the Living Social Deal to build awareness---but apparently not enough people showed up? Who knows?
So if you have a Living Social coupon for this place get a refund now and save yourself the drive.
