It’s always a bummer morning when learning that one of our favorite locally-owned spots, CitySip, is being put up for sale.

Owner Nicole Daddio first opened the wine-centric bar on Sunset Boulevard in 2008, and at the end of September completed renovations and a branding “revamp.” The fresh food menu, new taps for craft beers, and a more accessible and laid-back wine experience made the restaurant feel practically brand new.

We don’t have official word on whether or not the restaurant will continue to operate or shut its doors while attracting new owners, or how much the business is going for. Check back later for updates!


Owner Nicole Daddio confirmed the closure will take place on January 31, with occasional popup events in February and March. She will be making the official announcement this week.


CitySip is hosting a benefit for the Downtown Women’s Center called “Vino and Nibbles” on Wednesday, March 31 from 6-9:00 pm.

The event will cost you only $25 and includes two glasses of wine and hors d’oeuvres. There will be a silent auction for items including Baseline Box seats at a regular season Dodger home game, and a cooking class at Chez Cherie.

Photographer Mark Huddleston’s art will also be displayed, and proceeds of the art sold will be donated to the Women’s Center.

The Downtown Women’s Center provides permanent housing and a drop in Center offering food and supportive services for homeless women and women living in poverty in Downtown Los Angeles.

City Sip is located at 2150 W. Sunset Blvd.
