FYI, they will still be open for Valentine’s Day but this is sad news for at least some local wine lovers.

Siips Wine and Champagne Bar is closing its doors after Sunday, Feb. 19, according to an email sent by owner George Benford’s wife, Patty.
The Downtown Mall restaurant has been purchased by an unnamed local restaurant owner who has plans to re-open it as a upscale supper club in the spring.
Since Siips’ wine inventory was not part of the sale, Benford says they will be selling wine by the glass at deep discounts starting this weekend.
“We want to thank you for all your support and friendship over the last four years. We also want to thank all our employees for all their hard work and the family atmosphere they helped us create,” the email stated.
The restaurant’s schedule for weekend entertainment and Valentine’s Day Dinner will remain the same until it closes.
