GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — A new wine bar and jazz club in downtown Grand Rapids will begin curbside wine sales Friday after postponing its grand opening because of the coronavirus pandemic.
GRNoir Wine & Jazz, located at 35 S. Division St., had previously planned to open this fall.
Owners Shatawn and Nadia Brigham want their jazz club to be “a space to celebrate the complex and colorful connections between American and global cultures through wine and jazz and help patrons learn more about both.”
Shatawn Brigham is the only Black sommelier in Grand Rapids and is eager to help customers discover new wines.
“We’ve stocked a lot of interesting and tasteful wines that patrons can buy for themselves or order online to go to friends and family,” Shatawn said. “Although we can’t yet hold our grand opening, our Wine Club is open to new members and I’m happy to discuss wine selections with anyone who calls.”
GRNoir offers four tiers in its wine club.
Members and customers can order wines here.
