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!...

This is the most creative idea for a book store. It is comfortable, relaxing and inviting. You can find a sofa or overstuffed chairs in every nook and cranny of the store. There is a coffee bar and a champagne bar which serves small bites. This is a place you want to spend a lot of time in. The book... More

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!). We visited on a beautiful fall day and I was pleased at the options for sidewalk cafe style seating, as well as the open doors and windows... More

Coming from a book store desert, it is always a pleasure to go to Asheville where they have 3 wonderful used book stores right in the down town area. 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

So we go stumbling in here. Just before we hit the pinball museum. This place isn't a book store, more like a book maze. Two stories, goes on and on. You can wander in there till the search and rescue dogs come for you. Two days later we came back just so I could sit back and read with a... More

Echoing the other reviews in that the bookstore itself is the prettiest I've ever seen. Gorgeous colors and decorating, cool artifacts carefully placed throughout, and nicely placed and coordinated books. There were several dogs in the place while we were there, all well-behaved and quiet, and lending an extra touch of atmosphere. Made me wish for my dog - what... More

Love this place. Funky, cool and a nice place to relax and get a drink. Lots of books and comfy seating. Great place for a conversation with your friends or if you just need a place to relax. I must see if your in Ashville.

Kudos to the folks that created this book mecca. It was like heading to a major bookstore but with so much more charm and class. The ambiance is perfect and being able to have a glass of wine while you look through the books is peaceful and indulgent. I love this place and recommend it highly to anyone who loves... More
