Pino's Gift Basket Shoppe, Wine Cellar & Lounge

Pino's Gift Basket Shoppe, Wine Cellar and Lounge has grown from humble beginnings a favorite neighborhood spot that has served multiple generations of Central Jersey residents. The Gift Basket Shoppe and Wine Cellar were established in the year 1920 by the Pino family and have since then continued to uphold a 98-Year-Old tradition, continuing to offer Gourmet Gift Baskets, gourmet foods, and “constantly superior” products. Over the course of nearly a hundred years of service, Pinos Gift Basket Shoppe, Wine Cellar & Lounge has evolved and grown with the surrounding community. What started as a "greengrocery" store in the beginning, post Prohibition, the “mom and pop shop” began offering fine wines and spirits carefully curated by Vinnie Pino. It evolved once again, 5 years ago when current owners, Steve and Siobhan Weinstein added “The Lounge”. Pino’s has been through hard times and great times, but has persevered to become a place that the locals have grown to love and depend on. Today the current Pino’s is a combination of the original Pino's shop on the corner, under the owner, Vinnie Pino and a more current version that caters to the diverse community that is Highland Park. The Lounge regularly holds live music, fundraisers, open mic night and trivia night events. The local residents and passers by love to drop in to relax & enjoy a glass of wine, a pint of craft beer or a signature, barrel-aged cocktail. Regulars love the “BYOF” option, and often opt to order in or bring takeout from the many surrounding restaurants.
