Wine, Food, Beer & a Good Time!
English poet, John Keats, once described his perfect day: “Give me books, French wine, fruit, fine weather and a little music played out of doors by somebody I do not know.” You might need to bring your own book, but you’ll find all the rest at Crimson House in New Smyrna Beach. Located at the corner of Orange and Washington, Crimson House just celebrated its first anniversary and is fast becoming a highly popular destination for relaxing with fine wine, great music and good friends.
The charming two-story home, built in 1913 and located in the historic district just blocks from Canal Street, was fully restored. The main floor houses a warm and intimate wine bar, creatively decorated to preserve many original vintage features. You can partake of your favorite wine or craft beer inside, at the bar or in seating groupings – or outside, on the expansive porch or in the shaded courtyard. Savor wine by the glass or choose from an extensive offering of retail wines to enjoy on-premise or take home.

What’s Cooking in Crimson House
Crimson House has forged a new partnership with Coronado Kitchen, which serves foods Thursday through Sunday, with a bountiful and ever-changing variety of seasonal, locally inspired culinary delights. Such offerings as a charcuterie board, chicken skewers, grilled cheese and customer-favorite “house-made donuts” will complement your favorite wine or craft beer.
A Weekend Getaway at Crimson House
Upstairs you’ll find a well-appointed two-bedroom/one-bath vacation rental. The Loft at Crimson House comfortably sleeps four and features a private outside staircase. It’s a unique hideaway that’s just a short walk or bike ride from restaurants, shopping and the beach. Rental information and availability can be found on the Crimson House website.
Crimson House is the perfect location for your private events, like weddings, company parties, birthdays, reunions and community gatherings. The home and large adjoining lot, including the loft if needed, offer an ideal locale for celebrations.

Unique Events in New Smyrna Beach at Crimson House
Crimson House also presents numerous unique events. Thursday is Girls’ Night Out, featuring ladies’ drink specials and such fun activities as mobile shopping, tension relief massages and spiritual readings. Sunday’s Jazz Brunch with sangria is a relaxing favorite. The growing Crimson House Wine Club meets monthly and entitles members to private tastings, special discounts and two complimentary bottles to take home, in addition to wine education and camaraderie. Classes are becoming more popular, particularly wine glass painting, and more opportunities are being added.
Among the most anticipated events are the periodic scratch and dent sales, affording wine aficionados the opportunity to stock up on wine at a deep discount. Now and then, you’ll find a specialty event like “Build Your Own Wine Basket,” or “Yappy Hour,” where you can bring your dog and proceeds benefit dogs in need.
But the best thing about Crimson House is the people: welcoming staff, amazing vendors and appreciative customers who all have become friends. Perhaps that’s why Benjamin Franklin once wrote, “Wine makes daily living easier, less hurried, with fewer tensions and more tolerance.” Exactly what we all need, now more than ever.
