Nice atmosphere. Fun cocktails. Good bar and table clearing service. Not good table serving service. I have been to Novela twice and both times they play some "reserved table" game that I don't understand - even when the place is empty. You have to beg for a table, promise to leave when the others show up, but the others never do....

Funky bar with a "novel" theme. Really interesting cocktails. Crowd is well dressed and mostly young professionals. Great place for a date or a small group of friends. Seating can be difficult to find at peak times.

Novella is a cute novelty bar, filled with literature and yuppies. It smelled like salvation army and feet, but it was still a nice little spot. The Cinderella cocktail was surprisingly delicious! It would be an awesome venue space.

I’ve been to Novela a handful of times, usually for some sort of celebration, and the staff is some of the best around. They’re all very friendly and as accommodating as they can be even when it’s busy—which it is often. The appetizers are tasty, and the house cocktails are strong without being overpowering. I would recommend this place for happy hour, birthdays, and holiday parties.

Tasty cocktails and good selection of bar food. Cool decor. Always crowded. Even if you show up when it opens at 5, all except a couple of tables and the bar are available. Practically every table is marked “Reserved”. Bathrooms are interesting - make sure you visit.
