This was a highlight on our itinerary in Asheville. After walking in I got a glass of brut rose and started browsing the books. They had thousands of titles and tons of sections ranging from self help to biographies, cooking and fiction. It had a homey and comfortable feel really making it a comfortable experience, the store and its stewards... More

BOOKS, CHAMPAGNE, ESPRESSO and PUPS, really is there anything more to say? Other than I wish I had thought of this. A really fun place to kick back and have a beverage and a snack and enjoy the feeling of being surrounded by books.

Stopped here for a break from the heat while shopping. We had our dog with us an was able to bring her in and enjoy a cold drink and relax for a while. Place is unique and I highly recommend stopping in.

The architecture is beautiful, the books abundant, and the food and drinks delectable. I don't believe there is a waitstaff so you do have to go to the bar to order. Wasn't a problem and bartender was courteous. Will go back again.

This place is worth a trip to Asheville all by itself! The cozy spot has outdoor tables for people watching, but once you head inside you won't want to leave. There is a bar with wine, champagne, beer, etc. There's also a coffee bar and a menu of food to snack on. Once you start wandering around the stacks it's... More

What a fun place, unique books abound, cozy reading and lounging nooks galore, art on the walls and a full bar, perfect! Book lovers need to stop here and spend some time. We found some really unique books to purchase and had fun looking for them. If you enjoy bookstores don't miss this one.

Whoa! This spot is amazing! Love all the choices of books, especially the classics. Awesome setting and great atmosphere. Nice choice of coffees too. The "Thomas Wolfe" specialty was delicious. You could definitely spend the day here reading one of the books you purchase or enjoying one of their many selections of beverages. What a great concept to put an... More

Comfort, style, sophisticated charm...the Battery Park Book Exchange has it all: elegant setting in the art deco heart of Asheville, hot and cold beverages, hors d'oeuvres amidst stylish comfort and an array of wonderful books sheltering hidden nooks and crannies for quiet tete-à-tetes. Who but a lawyer who loves books, wines, dogs and people could come up with the perfect... More
