Prior to entering the front doors, you’re greeted by a cedar pergola, wine barrels, and Adirondack chairs that encourage you to sit, relax, warm yourself by beautiful Vin de Flame firepit tables made from classic wood wine cases that feature logos from some of the finest vineyards in the world.
From the moment you enter the vestibule, you feel the warmth of the California Central Coast, and specifically, its wine region. You’re greeted by an image of a rolling vineyard, surrounded by lush, green hills. Handmade, brightly colored ceramic floor tiles welcome you into a setting that says, “unwind and enjoy the amazing wines of the California Central Coast and beyond…And feast on amazing, curated foods that compliment with rich, luscious flavors.” We’ve infused a true Balance of Nature in our interior design which blends so cohesively with the fresh and natural ingredients in our Cali-coastal and Mediterranean cuisine.
The interior is an explosion of warm colors on furnishings and baskets, mixed with crisp bright happy walls. While rich and sophisticated, the overall feel is comfortable and relaxed. Natural materials like rattan, leather, oak, and walnut give the space an authentic look and feel.
Plants and finishes are a mix of airy, earthy florals and fiddle figs. Many of the design elements are warm and homey – artwork and books make the space feel collected and intimate.
Main Dining Room
The Main Dining Room features both comfortable, booth seating around the perimeter, as well as communal tables in the center of the room. Basket pendants highlight the central corridor. Tables are socially distanced to maintain intimacy and current seating guidelines.
Bar and Lounge
The Bar and Lounge area feature a copper infused bulkhead and a seemingly endless quartz countertop. Wood and marble lounge tables provide a communal feel, encouraging more wine tasting and small plates with family and friends.
The Oak Room is perfect for family gatherings, parties, and meetings, with beautiful mahogany doors that close to give that private feel. Rich, reclaimed pine pedestal tables seat from six to ten. State of the art audio/visual supports your meetings and group events.
The Wine Room
The Wine Room features nearly hundred bottles from around the globe, again with an emphasis on California’s Central Coast. The surround of silver oak paneling enhances the warmth and richness of the room – our Sommelier’s dream setting.
Exterior patios complete the aesthetic of Smashing Grapes. The smaller Vineyard Patio is intimate yet open. The larger Sunset Patio is wide open yet warm. Both have sophisticated heating systems and awnings that allow for nearly year-round enjoyment. They have an inviting back and front porch feel, beckoning you to relax and enjoy wine with friends and family. You’ll feel as if you’ve been transported to the Central Coast at harvest time.
