About Us

Velvet 48 is a premium wine bar in downtown Burlingame started by 20-year wine industry veteran, Jason Cooper. We offer over 50 wines by the glass, 500 wines by the bottle, a cultivated beer selection, and a variety of delicious savory and sweet small plates. 

We have wines across every price point so there is something for everyone, from the casual wine drinker to the wine aficionado, who will be impressed by a wine collection that houses some of the finest wines in the world. We aim to cultivate an experience for our guests that starts with a complimentary splash of our house label, Velvet 48 Sparkling Blanc de Blancs, followed by outstanding service from our Wine Specialists to guide you through our expansive list.  We offer a discount of 25% off the purchase of six bottles or more, available for consumption on premise or taken to go.  

During the Covid-19 pandemic, we are only able to operate our wine bar service outside in front of our space where we have room for 5 tables inside the parklet.  We can add two lower tables with stools and a bench on the sidewalk for busier times. Reservations are recommended and available through Yelp. With the social distancing requirements, we hope you understand that we need to limit the number of people per table to 4 with a 90-minute time limit.

Due to the nature of our alcoholic license, we are unable to allow anyone under 21 on the premises, including infants. 

Thank your for your understanding.
