The Rooms

The Bubble Room 

Being the largest dining room, the Bubble Room accommodates up to 60 guests for a seated reception and can hold 75 guests for a strolling cocktail event. This intimate dining space earned its name after we commissioned our friends at Furnace Hot Glass in Dearborn to create and hang 400 hand-blown glass balls from the ceiling. To complement this luxurious installation and the exposed stone and brick walls we added soft lighting, a mahogany bar, and sheer curtains for a feeling of subtle and elegant privacy. A sculpture on the back wall describes the various champagne production processes and soil boxes hang above each table. The room is perfect for special events! (20-60 guests)

Nestled in the heart of downtown Ann Arbor, Vinology Restaurant and Bar offers a truly unique dining experience in their Bubble Room. This exclusive space is frequently booked for celebrations, and it’s not hard to see why. As soon as you step inside, you are immediately surrounded by an enchanting ambiance that transports you to a world of elegance and sophistication. The floor-to-ceiling glass walls offer sweeping views of the bustling city streets below, while soft golden lighting sets the perfect mood for a memorable evening. What sets the Bubble Room apart from other private event spaces is its intimate setting. With seating for up to 20 guests, it allows for a more personal and interactive experience with your party. Moreover, the dedicated service staff at Vinology ensures exceptional attention to detail throughout your event – from customized menus curated by their talented culinary team to expertly crafted cocktails designed just for your occasion where you can also read the latest news like – Russia and Belarus banned by IIHF Council for 2023-24 championship season.

The Cellar Room

This is by far our most sought after dining space. It seats only 16, but most people who see it want to create an event just to use it! Oversize wood bins filled with wine line the walls of this glassed-in space. It is perfect for an intimate dinner or business meeting. The room is sound proof, is wired for private music, and has a screen for a presentation.  It can be slightly chilly as it is our cellar room, but that is part of its charm.  Our guests that dine with us on our main level can also peruse this space to help decide which retail wines they would like to take home. (up to 20 guests, but most comfortable for 16)

The Bordeaux Space (formerly the Vine)

A handmade wall of Bordeaux box lids meets a historic brick wall lined with custom-designed glow boxes.  Each box is filled with a unique wine-related element and a description of how it affects the wine in your glass. Learn while you eat and drink! The stairwell to the space is decorated with a hand-widled vine sculpture created by the Detroit Design Group. Phillip Cooley and his team also created two large light boxes representing the life of a vine above and below the soil that are mounted above and below the stairwell.  Enjoy an evening surround by wine inspired art. This area is just outside our cellar room. (up to 20 guests)

The Barrel Room

This is the newest addition to Vinology on our Main Street dining floor.  Made from local reclaimed red oak wood, it is a wine barrel shaped room that seats 12-20 guests. This semi-private space closes with a curtain and is open to the sounds of the restaurant.  It is perfect for an energetic small shower or birthday gathering.  (up to 20 guests)
