Howells is the project of Nate Welch, who has spent the better part of the past two decades in the wine and restaurant industries.  He grew up in the Midwest and was always fond of the neighborhood bar his grandparents owned in the small Nebraska town of Howells. It's both the memories of his grandparents' community-minded bar and his experience in the food and wine industry that inspired him to create Howells, a neighborhood wine and beer bar on Chestnut Street.

Although there is much focus on wine, Howells is not your typical wine bar. It's a lively atmosphere filled with eclectic, energetic music. There is an abundance of beer and wine choices. The food is simple and tasty, leaning towards healthy and quality. And there is a substantial dose of handcraft details throughout the space, making for a warm and inviting experience. It's worth a trip if only to check out the handmade bar.
