Although it is home to some great restaurants, a couple of performing arts venues, and a movie theater, Dennis, Massachusetts, isn't exactly known for its nightlife.

One exception is the Harvest Gallery Wine Bar, a unique venue featuring a diverse menu, outstanding drink options, live entertainment, and an on-site art gallery.

The Harvest Gallery Wine Bar isn't a place to party, but it provides a cultural atmosphere where you can enjoy some drinks, have a bite to eat, and listen to live music well into the evening.

If you're looking for a relaxing place to hang out late-night on your Cape Cod vacation, the Harvest Gallery Wine Bar is worth considering.

Drinks From the Bar

This venue has "wine bar" right in its name, so it makes sense that it would focus on providing high-end wine to its guests.

The Harvest Gallery Wine Bar has a wide selection of white and red wines from California, Oregon, Italy, Argentina, Chile, New Zealand, and France, so no matter what you're into, they're likely to have it. They carry rose and prosecco, too, should you want something a little sweeter.

Wine is available by the glass or the bottle, with select options coming in half-bottles, too.

As for cocktails, the bar has a signature menu, including some original concoctions that you won't find anywhere else. Cape House 2.0 and the Harvest Spritz are particularly compelling options that are worth a try.

There's a beer menu at the Harvest Gallery Wine Bar, as well, which features drafts from local breweries like Devil's Purse, Cape Cod Beer, and Barnstable Brewing, in addition to regional producers like Mayflower Brewing in Plymouth and Narragansett Brewing Company in Rhode Island. You'll also see options from other breweries around the country in cans and bottles.

No matter your preference, you'll find a great drink at the Harvest Gallery Wine Bar.

A Look at the Menu

There's a little bit of everything on the food menu at the Harvest Gallery, including local favorites like clam chowder, oysters, and sea scallops.

If you visit as a group, there are nachos, lettuce wraps, and a charcuterie board to share, or you can choose from a selection of salads and pizzas.

The main menu features sandwiches and paninis, and there is even a kids' menu featuring smaller sandwiches and pasta.

For dessert, you can choose between house-made creme brulee, carrot cake, and chocolate cake, or kick it up a notch with a blueberry crisp martini.

The menu might not be as extensive as other places on the Cape, but there's something for everyone at the Harvest Gallery Wine Bar.

There's Always Live Entertainment

The main draw at the Harvest Gallery Wine Bar is the live music. Every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night, the venue has at least one band, with some nights having two performers taking the stage.

Generally, the music gets started at 7:00 PM on Thursdays and 8:00 on Fridays and Saturdays, although things get going as early as 5:00 PM when there are multiple bands.

The restaurant opens on select Sundays, too, and there is also live music on those nights.

The Harvest Gallery Wine Bar doesn't accept reservations, so you'll have to arrive early to ensure that you find a seat. Keep in mind that the doors open at 4:00 PM and the schedule comes out well in advance, giving you plenty of time to plan ahead.

A Contemporary Art Gallery

While you're sampling the wine at the bar, why not check out the art gallery, too? This studio features contemporary works by over 30 local Cape Cod artists and is always changing depending on what the artists provide.

Most of the works displayed inside the restaurant are for sale so that you can bring a one-of-a-kind piece home with you from your Cape Cod vacation.

Visit the Harvest Gallery Wine Bar's website for a full list of their current artists, as well as what everything costs to purchase.

Your Night on the Town

The Harvest Gallery Wine Bar enjoys a convenient location in Dennis Village, right on the Old King's Highway and within walking distance of the Cape Playhouse. This location makes it easily accessible from vacation rentals throughout the Mid-Cape, so you can make the venue a part of your holiday plans.

When visiting Cape Cod, you'll have plenty of entertainment options, but a visit to the Harvest Gallery Wine Bar is sure to become a highlight.
