Calave - Bittered Sling and Vine

CALAVE, "WHERE EVERYBODY KNOWS YOUR NAME"

Located in the heart of Palo Alto’s California Avenue Business District, Calave is a wine bar appropriate for just about any occasion. It has both a contemporary and vintage feel, where you can enjoy wines by the glass and on tap found both locally and globally. Calave also offers a selection of innovative craft beers with a variety of delicious bar bites to keep you satisfied.

MAYFIELD BREWRY (CIRCA 1868-1920) STOOD ON THE CORNER OF LINCOLN & 2ND, NOW CALIFORNIA & BIRCH

Once the home of the Mayfield Brewery, Calave’s site has an interesting history. Before becoming incorporated into Palo Alto in 1904, California Avenue was part of the rowdy, pre-prohibition town of Mayfield. Calave’s aesthetic celebrates the spirit of the former owner’s rich, pre-prohibition past.

THE PARTNERS OF CALAVE

In 2015, Dave, Lori, Becky and James set out to create a neighborhood bar with a focus on elevating the wine bar experience. Cultivating relationships with their patrons is central to their vision. Their hard work and creativity resulted in a unique establishment where locals and out of town visitors can unwind with the best wine, craft beers and tasty food, all served in an inviting atmosphere without pretense.
