The Wine Exchange was opened in Old Hyde Park Village in 1990 by its proprietor Mark Smith, a local physician with a penchant for wine, with the help of Doug Clarke a sommelier at Bern's Steak House. Created as a Wine Bar, the Wine Exchange transformed into a Bistro while remaining committed to its emphasis on fine wine.

Originally located on the periphery of the shopping village the Wine Exchange moved to its current location in the heart of Hyde Park Village in March of 2008. The restaurant offers a full service bar as well as indoor and outdoor dining.
