Located at the entrance to Battle Ground Village, Emanar Cellars is an authentic Spanish-style wine and tapas bar owned by Richard and Mar (who hails from Madrid). Wednesday through Saturday they pour from a healthy list of Spanish wines and serve up tasty nibbles in their intimate space with plenty of outdoor seating for spicy summer nights. This Thursday, come out from 4-9 p.m. to enjoy a special tapas sampler for $5.
