We were on our way to lunch when we walked around the corner where Battery Park Book Exchange and Champagne Bar is located. Of course, we opened the door and peeked inside. Books, mazes of shelves ( took me 2 tries to get to the restroom and I may not have gone the right way then), CHOCOLATE TRUFFLES!, CHAMPAGNE!!! We... More

Out of all of the things we did in Asheville, this was hands down our favorite part of our weekend. Such a cool place!! We walked through the store before committing to a spot. We wound our way through the first floor, up to the second, picking up books as we went, learning the layout of the space. We finally... More

My husband & I went with family who live in Asheville. What a fun place. Little rooms full of books with plenty of seating for groups and seating for single visitors also. Bring your well-behaved dog!! Live music at times, great desserts & cheese boards with a lovely selection of wines, champagne & local beers. Used books to peruse or... More

At first we loved it. It seems so neat. We got coffees which were good and were impressed with the wine menu. After looking around the books are unorganized and you can't really look at them. Then the people in reserves sections acted like we shouldn't talk or look at books around them. Then we walked passed a table and... More

Great place! Order wine, champagne, sparkling wine or coffee and walk around to browse the books. Or grab a cozy spot and just chill. Really a unique place and definitely worth a stop.

What a neat find. Happened in this place during a girls' trip to Asheville and went back the next day. We had loads of fun browsing their book selection, hanging out in the upstairs sitting area and simply chatting over a bottle of champagne. Not often you find a spot with this much character. Definitely a great place to spend... More

Stopped in on a whim while walking downtown in the evening. Wonderful character and atmosphere - nice selection of champagnes and wine. A fun spot to enjoy books, champagne and great company.

What a great place to drink and browse. This was our first stop when arriving in Asheville and we will definitely return. Sitting in comfy leather chairs, sipping champagne and people watching, what could be better?

We went in while walking around downtown. It is connected to Grove Arcade, but you must enter directly into the store. Wonderful selection of used books on three floors. The place is kind of like a maze with rows and rows of books everywhere. There are tables and chairs stashed here and there and it is pet friendly. We saw... More
