Perusing a great collection of unique old book with a glass of bubbly? Yes, Please! I was partial to the original classics sections, which have been rebound with beautiful new covers, and the children section, where if you scour you can find limited editions in remarkably good condition.

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!...

Saw this on an Asheville Tourism site and had to check it out... wow! The atmosphere was inviting and relaxing and just plain perfect (though it was wasted on my couch potato husband!).

Although they are all unique in their own ways, Battery Park Book for me is the best. In addition to the books, which are voluminous, well-selected, and well-organized, there is a... More
