New wine bar set to open in River Park Square Kirby

A new wine bar is set to open in River Park Square this summer.

Whim Wine Bar will replace Red Fox Sports on the main level of the mall.

Owners Kori Henderson and Paul Blacketeer are no strangers to the business. Henderson spent the last three years working in a wine bar, while Blacketeer’s expertise is in back-of-house operations.

Henderson said the new wine hangout will feature 30 by-the-glass wines from across the globe, as well as bottle sales for those that want to take their wine home. There will also be a food menu available featuring thin crust pizzas, charcuterie boards and an array of appetizers that are all locally sourced.

Whim Wine Bar is set to open in June and will be open daily starting at noon.
