Sidecar Tasting Room

A Prohibition Wine Bar In The Heart Of Historic Dripping Springs, Texas

Sip, Listen, Relax.

Located in historic downtown Dripping Springs, Texas, beneath giant ancient oak trees sits Sidecar Tasting Room. Originally created to serve as a second tasting room for Bell Springs Winery, the tasting room is situated on half an acre on Old Fitzhugh Road.

The beautifully restored bungalow serves as a prohibition style wine bar and offers an intimate and meticulously designed inside space and plenty of outdoor patio space to enjoy great wine, great food, and wonderful live music and entertainment every week.

Sidecar is most well-known for the incredible Texas wine that is served up 7 days a week by their friendly and knowledgeable staff. Whether you enjoy cozying up to the bar inside, at one of the outdoor tables, or at one of the more intimate tables tucked away inside, you have many choices to choose from.


If you are not sure what beverage or wine to sip on, the folks at Sidecar Tasting Room are seasoned wine pros and will help determine the best choice for you based on your preferred tastes and palate.

Whether you choose to enjoy a professionally paired wine flight, wine by the glass, a full bottle of wine to be shared, or a specialty wine cocktail, any option you choose, there is no wrong choice.

If you are looking to try a few options without going for a glass or a full bottle, we suggest you try a red or white wine flight. The flight consists of a 3-ounce pour of selected varietals that change throughout the year. Their knowledgeable staff will guide you through the flight and will help you reveal the subtle differences in the wines when tasted side-by-side.

One of the most popular items on the wine menu is the specialty wine cocktails that are ideal for one of those hot Texas afternoons. These refreshing masterpieces are always changing and always refreshing so it’s best to go often to get a full sampling of the cocktails they offer.

Sidecar Tasting room also has a full food menu as well as small bites that have been created to be perfectly paired with their wine menu. Share the classic Cheese, Meat and Mediterranean Plate with friends, or enjoy a local empanada! From brisket to vegetarian options, you can enjoy a delicious empanada at Sidecar 7 days a week.

If something on the lighter side won’t quell your appetite, on Thursday and Fridays, Sidecar has a food truck onsite with a full menu. The full menu includes items like crispy sweet chili brussel sprouts, flatbread pizza with tasting toppings like pesto arugula, BBQ pork, cheddar and friend jalapenos. Chef Mike Massaro also serves up classic southern items like chicken tenders and waffles, sliders, and a variety of grilled cheese options. Ticketed dinners are also available on some nights.

From live music to trivia night, Sidecar Tasting Room brings the fun with their lively events calendar. Every Thursday at 6:30 pm, Sidecar invites you to join in for a wild night of Trivia. It is always free to play, and they always have cash prizes for the winning team. It’s the perfect way to show off all that useless knowledge you’ve got floating around in your head and enjoy a glass of wine while you’re at it!

If friendly competition isn’t really your style, Sidecar hosts a great variety of musicians and singer-songwriters every Friday and Saturday night. Local and national musicians like Russ Glenn, Meaghan Tubb, Robert Irwin, and Nathan Hinojosa hit the stage and fill the airwaves with sweet tunes ranging from classic rock, country, and flamenco. Sidecar is also one of the hosts of the Dripping Springs Songwriters Festival, a 3-day music festival held on the third weekend of October that takes place in the heart of Dripping Springs.
