Vixen probably offers more wines by the glass than any other wine bar in town—a testament to its sommeliers, who know just what to put on the daily glass list and just what to recommend to guests. The bottle list is no less impressive, featuring an international selection of vintages worthy of a Wine Spectator award. No wonder, as Vixen’s owner, California sommelier Jennifer Mitchell, was the first in Estonia to receive the Wine Spectator award, for a wine list she crafted at a nearby hotel several years ago.
Because Vixen imports many of its own wines, its shelves are stocked with bottles seen nowhere else in the region. Likewise, Vixen’s specialty cocktails are conceived in house and won’t be found in other bars. A well-curated selection of beers and spirits rounds out the drinks list.
Although lacking a full kitchen, Vixen treats guests to an ever-changing menu of modest dishes and snacks meant to accompany its wines. The de rigueur offering of cheeses and meats goes beyond the usual, with everything chosen from top international suppliers, sliced on the premises and presented just so. Those looking to celebrate need look no further, as Vixen supplies you with top-notch champagnes and caviar.
Vixen hosts private soirées as well as regular events, including wine tastings, food-and-wine pairing workshops and its beloved monthly Bloody Mary Sundays.
Vixen is open every day, but the opening hours can vary between 12:00 and 16:00, so if you plan a daytime visit, best to call ahead and check. Reservations are accepted but generally not necessary. The doors stay open until the last guest leaves.
