VINARIA wine cellar is located in the old part of the city, in one of the historical underground passages that connected the shopping center with the Izmail fortress. The foundation dates back to the mid-19th century. Historical brickwork is successfully harmonized with modern author's forging, furniture and details of vintage decor. The vaulted ceiling and ancient arches give the cellar a unique atmosphere in which our guests feel very comfortable.
