Nektar is a hip little multi level establishment that bills itself as a wine, beer, and whiskey bar. The back opens up, along with an outside porch, to a nice view of the meandering creek and the PA Playhouse, with people watching as an entertaining option. It was a great day to eat all' fresco, so we opted for outdoor seating.

The menu is kind of unique with literally pages of beverage options with interesting flights of all kinds of goodies. They specialize primarily in whiskeys and bourbons for cocktails but they do have one specialty bottle each of vodka, rum, and tequila for something different. A nice selection of tapas were available, so it was not hard to find something for everyone.

Arianne was our waitress that day and she did an awesome job. The pace was leisurely and she was very attentive, even though she got slammed with a handful of tables shortly after we arrived. All of the menu items we selected were perfectly prepared and pleasing to the palate. Our favorites were the tuna tartare, mushroom fries, and the charcuterie plate (which offered an outstanding selection to choose from). Everything was served as it was ready but it was paced as such that our table was never overcrowded with plates. Enjoyed some great wines by the glass after my scotch on the rocks and it ended up to be a well balanced meal.

Not in the area much anymore, but this would be our go-to spot for sure if we were.

The atmosphere is terrific, we sat in the upper dining room which is open on 3 sides, you feel you're sitting outside. The menu was really creative and in our group of 7 we tried about 9 small plates; all were delicious. This could become a regular spot for us

Whiskey, beer & wine.
I had a fantastic Bordeaux flight.
My wife had a recommended pinot that was drier than she preferred...or asked for.
The cheese & meat selection is excellent.
I love Octopus....this Octopus had good flavor but a little tough, not quite prepared right.
The tamales were ok as well.
They were out of a few food items as well.
Outdoor seating is awesome looking over the creek.
Service was good.
We would be back for wine & cheese/meat and hope they are not out of our first 3 choices next time.
We would be back.

We simply walked by the Nektar Wine Bar on a recent visit to Lambertville and New Hope and it looked so inviting that we stopped to try it out. In a word ... it was GREAT. It bills itself as a wine, beer, and whisky bar, and you can sample a large variety of flights of all three types of drink, order food tapas-style, and enjoy the ambiance of the several dining areas. (whoever designed this bar deserves some sort of award).

We began with two types of beer and selected three varieties of cheese from the cheese menu and since it was so nice just sitting there, we added two classes of wine apiece to finish. We had a relatively light lunch in the afternoon but could have easily gone back for dinner and tried several other things from the menu.

Here is the best advice I can give to visitors to Nektar: experiment and explore. Leave your favorite, usual choices of wine, beer, and foods at the door, and try new things. I doubt you will be disappointed.

Wandering through town around lunchtime we passed by the two story open air seating area of Nektar on our way to a different place for lunch. We looked at the menu and thought everything looked interesting and good, but we continued on toward our planned destination (where we were disappointed). We corrected our earlier mistake by going to Nektar for drinks and dessert after dinner. The ambiance is upscale casual relaxed. The drinks were great and dessert (rice pudding w/coconut and mango - tasted like an American version of the Thai mango & sticky rice) was delicious. If we come back to New Hope we will ABSOLUTELY eat here!
