Hampden’s 13.5% Wine Bar has a new offshoot in Locust Point. Silo.5% in the Silo Point tower shares its big brother’s affinity for upscale wine experiences at decent prices. The modern and cozy lounge caters to oenophiles downtown with more than 30 wines by the glass, as well as a selection of seasonal cocktails and beers. The bar’s 200-bottle wall of wines adds a striking visual element to this sleek space, as well. A menu of small plates— lobster tempura or crispy duck roulade, anyone?— pairs well with the wines. If you’re looking for more substantial fare, you can chose from seasonal entrées, such as black trumpet mushroom-crusted Ahi tuna or pan-roasted sea bass with bacon-braised Brussels sprouts. Open Tuesday through Sunday. 1200 Steuart St., 443-438-4044, http://www.silo.5winebar.com—Gina Moffa
