Dude. This is the internet. It exists solely to make fun of people for their choices that have zero impact on you.
Any time I see a guy drinking wine in a "regular bar" I think it's weird. By regular bar I mean a place where you're obviously just going to drink. Those places are for beer and liquor. Frankly, I don't understand why they even have wine on the menu. But I don't see a problem with drinking wine in a restaurant bar. I usually assume those people are just waiting for a table or something, and a glass of wine before dinner seems much more normal/hetero than just pounding glasses of pinot at Sully's Pub.
Unless it is a really good place, wine by the glass offerings normally stink, so I normally would not order a glass of wine at a bar for that reason.
Last year at a conference a few of us went to a dive bar and one of the women asked about their wine selection. The bartender said, "we have one bottle of white wine and you don't want to drink it." She ordered a club soda.
