It has finally opened a few weeks ago and I made a trip there to check it out. For those of you who are not aware, El Vino is a wine shop located on Abbot Kinney just across from the Other Room.
Good selections, varying price ranges, knowledgeable staff, friendly and they have weekly wine flights.
I give it a thumbs up!

Totally second this. Bart is a cool, nice guy. I know less than nothing about wines and he suffered my stupidity with grace. That speaks volumes. Plus whatever he gave me turned out to be good. My only issue is there's absolutely no place to sit down there, so it doesnt foster a culture of hanging out (which, in turn, should mean more sales).
