This is perhaps on of the most unique places I have every been to. The name betrays the place in some ways. It isn't really just a "bar". My wife loves books and loves coffee so to start our anniversary trip it seemed like the obvious first stop. Inside is a maze (in a good way) of book shelves and... More

This place is really cool. Many little areas throughout to sit back and relax. Tons of books and lots of good people watching. We'll definitely go back... Ohh and the coffee was really good!

Cozy and relaxing atmosphere with large selection of books. Give yourself plenty of time to enjoy reading and drinking in one of many cozy seats or nooks.

I have nothing bad to say about this place. It's the perfect place for singles, couples or friends! The atmosphere is cozy and inviting especially when they have someone playing music. I would recommend as a must visit if in Asheville.

On Friday evening, we met up with two friends from college at the Battery Park Book Exchange and Champagne Bar. We found a quiet corner, ordered some champagne and a fruit and cheese plate and then spent two delightful hours catching up with one another and enjoying the setting, surrounded by books, which led us to even more interesting conversations!...
