Nicole Sullivan loved what her book club offered: friends, novels, wine, and plenty of appetizers. So when the Bookery Nook in Denver’s Berkeley neighborhood announced it was closing, Sullivan drafted a business plan and took over. The culinary school grad turned the bookstore/ice cream parlor into her own version of a book club hub. The result: Bookbar, a cool and cozy combination bookstore and wine bar with food—appetizers to desserts—designed for sharing.
The menu recalls sections of a book: Order coffee drinks and Teatulia teas from the Prologue; choose appetizers from the Introduction like “A Confederate of Charcuterie” and “A Portrait of a Cheese Plate” (with daily selections from the Truffle Cheese Shop); crostini, pizzetta, tea sandwiches, and a kids’ menu from Chapters 1,2, 3, and 4; and a strong, well-honed list of Colorado beers and global wines in the Epilogue.
Tip: Sign up for your own book club event, meet-the-author chats, book and wine pairings, and monthly wine tastings.
