FREE CORKAGE

We created a book-club recently and named it Literary Lushes. It’s awesome. We all love books, we all love wine.

As a group we’re always looking for spots to dine + discuss the book, where we can bring our own vino for cheap or free. So this list was created out of a personal need, but we hope you enjoy it as well.

If you know of spots missing from the list, please let us know and we’ll get them added.

    This is such a great site! Just to let you know, Blair’s does not offer free corkage. We went there for dinner on Saturday night, and while the food was good, they charged us a $20 corkage fee.

  2. Carissa says:

    Love this site! You left out the hillstone restaurants like Bandera, Houstons, Hillstone. They offer free corkage every day! Also in the Valley, Café Bizou has either no corkage fee or really cheap (don’t remember which it is)

    • FinerThingsLA says:

      You know we had the Hillstone’s up there but had heard the details of Free Corkage had changed… we’ll give them a call to see what’s up. We’ll also look into Cafe Bizou. Thanks for the tips!!
