The owners of a new wine bar in downtown Overland Park are now eyeing a February grand opening.

Vintage ’78, which will aim to serve up wine in a more casual atmosphere, will go into a ground-level space at 7251 W. 80th St., beneath The Vue apartment complex and next door to Parisi Cafe.

Vintage ’78 will serve food in addition to wine

  • Items on the menu include paninis, grilled cheese, soup and charcuterie boards, according to owner Michael Scherzberg.
  • For its wine, Vintage ’78 is going to have around 78 selections available to get in either a taste of wine, a half glass, full glass or bottle.
  • Scherzberg previously told the Post he hopes to expand their bottle list in the future.

The bar will also host classes and private events

  • On Tuesdays and Wednesdays, Vintage ’78 will be closed to use the space for wine-tasting classes, as well as other events.
  • To create a fun ambiance, background music while the space is open will be from the 1970s to the 1990s, along with some French hip-hop, Scherzberg said.

  • Scherzberg said he hopes to open more wine bar locations around the Kansas City metro in the future and is considering places including Lee’s Summit and Briarcliff.
