Coffee Shop, Wine Store & Bar
Wine - Beer - Spirits - Food - Coffee - Ice Cream - Chocolate - free WiFi and Entertainment.  All in the heart of historic Beaufort-by-the-Sea
   The CRU BAR is the newest addition to our historic old building. We've always offered wines, beers, and spirits, but the new Bar has allowed us to add draft beers to our offerings, and over 30 wines by-the-glass. Cozy and romantic, its twenty-four feet of lovely wood and glass in an old-time classic Bar design has gotten a lot of attention.

   You are cordially invited to come and spend time at the new CRU BAR.   It has already become a focal point where friends can  gather and share drinks and good food in a relaxing and welcoming atmosphere.  Stop in and see it for yourself.
   CRU is a special place for wines. We offer flights of wines at affordable prices. And we now have wine tastings every Friday,  6:30- 8 pm, These events are a great way to learn more about the wines of the world. The wines that are tasted are available for by-the-glass drinks at the Bar and discounted for by-the-bottle purchase.
Enjoy good times and your favorite drinks with lively music on Friday and Saturdays.
Live music from 8:30-11:30 pm.


   Any of the wines from the Wine Store can be enjoyed by-the-glass at the Bar. The Bar now has six draft beers on tap, and lots of craft and traditional bottled beers. The Bar also offers you spirited drinks of all sorts, using  Cru's own  mixers. The menu page lists our great Bar foods, available until closing.
