Greencork is a cute little wine bar in Cooper Young. I am pretty sure that is Memphis's only self service wine bar. It works like this. First you get a card, in which you choose how much money to put on it. I put $20 on mine. The wine dispensers are grouped by type of wine. You can choose if you want a small, medium, or large pour. Each wine and pour size has a different price. You put your card in and push the button that corresponds to what you want. Then the price is deducted from the card.
Personally, I like to get the smallest pour, so that I can try multiple types of wine.
It's very cozy. You can sit at traditional tables or nice comfy chairs or even a couch.
They also have a bar and food. I have had one of their appetizers. It was a cheese plate, which was very typical. However, I saw someone order the picnic basket. I really want to try it. It has a large picnic basket filled with tons of goodies.
This place is only open at night. I have been a few times. It is a fun experience.
My only question/concern is about tipping. You have a waitress, who brings you water and menus. What if I only want to use my prepaid wine card and have wine? I'm not sure how to tip.
Anyway, go there, if you haven't already!
