Too true. Many of them seem to be niche bars that are so niche they suck to everybody except the owner. "We only serve biodynamic wines of Malbec in variety whose grapes are only plucked by a vegan Spaniard 4 hours after his 4 hour hot yoga session in the fall." Fuck you, your overpriced wine sucks.
