This bookstore and bar sells rare and used books, and provides a casual, comfortable atmosphere in which to enjoy them. The dedicated staff knows and cares about literature and can speak about their stock in a way that mega-stores like Amazon can't compete with. The rough-around-the-edges décor is all part of the charm. Delve into your book post-purchase on one of the floral-print chairs with a glass of wine or beer. Inquire about the events, as there's a long list of visiting authors and musical acts who bring the space to life in the evenings.
