Editorial Review of Webster's Wine Bar

Keep your eyes peeled when seeking this establishment for the first time, or you're likely to overlook its dark fašade and inconspicuous sign. You won't miss the lively chatter flowing from the entrance, however, beckoning you closer and closer until the urge to enter is irresistible.

Equally captivating is the large velvet sofa just beyond the entrance, partnered with a matching chair and small coffee table. It's generally occupied by those waiting for more intimate seating but is ideal for informal gatherings as well. The four-top tables throughout the space are comfortable and inviting, well-suited for an evening of good conversation and great vino.

Webster's prides itself on offering an extensive selection of quality wines by the glass or the bottle, and well-informed servers will happily explain your options. The rotating inventory is quite affordable, comes from around the world, and features a specific region or varietal each month. The small plate menu ensures you won't drink on an empty stomach and includes options such as smoked salmon and brie quesadillas.

Periodic classes and tasting events allow patrons to expand their knowledge of all things grape-related. Additionally, Webster's caters to lovers of literature with its 2nd Story reading series, showcasing local writers who merge music with storytelling.

Average cost: $10-$20
