Communing with books at a pit stop cafe!
Jan 2019 • Friends
The book theme was well sustained at this cafe. Besides which, one could actually pause and browse through some of the titles on display. Apart from the excellent decor and the treasured books, the staff were human treasures. They really made my friend and I feel welcome.

A great cafe
Jul 2016 • Couples
This is a great cafe on the 2nd floor of an old building, above a flower shop. They do drinks and snacks, but not much food sandwich type stuff mainly. The mojitos are particularly good and at 60,000 definitely worth sampling. A really lovely place, over 3 rooms. A cool and quiet oasis in a mad city. A great place to sit and unwind and cool down. The staff are lovely, really friendly and helpful. The place is nicely decorated and a great place to sit and chill. It is on the edge of the old quarter, only about 5 minutes from the centre.

Delightful hidden gem!
Mar 2016 • Couples
Although this place was hard to find it was worth it once we arrived. If you are a book lover then you will absolutely love this place. The drink menu was customized to the book theme. My husband and I love this place and would definitely recommend to fellow artsy couples! Very quaint and artsy!

Cool, unique and inspiring!

What a decoration! This place doesn't offer that many seats but the interior design is definitely worth drink. As you can see on the picture it looks like being in a Fantastic Anime/Movie like Beetlejuice. Very unique, not that easy to find (need to go inside the condo residence). There drinks are pricey but well good. A must try once.

A small bar tucked away at the back of the property that the Uber driver and difficulty locating, but very well designed and decorated. Great for groups of up to 4, with well prices and well made cocktails.

Overrated

Its a very small room with some book hanging from the roof, drinks are above average prices and staff were pretty good.

I think extremely overrated

The place is small, not good for big groups but it's a very cozy place to hang out with a very nice ambiance. Their cocktails are nice too.

When I opened the Google map app to help us find the place, there has been a message that has been coming out saying the place maybe permanently closed. It's still open but would be until 10:30 pm only starting this month. We arrived at 10:15 pm but still they served the drinks we ordered.

really cool bar
May 2015 • Couples
Really cool bar with great cocktail list. Sorta like Alice in Wonderland come to life. Saw this on bangkok magazine and had to check it out. Definitly worth the trip and easy walk from the soi 38 street food market. Cocktail list was really cool as well with drinks named after famous authors.

Amazing decoration
Apr 2015 • Solo
I like the idea of having a coffeeshop in the middle of a bookshop. I saw a few interesting ones while in South America. In Paris alone, there has been a long tradition of cafés associated with writers like Café de Flore or Café des Deux Magots in Saint-Germain-des-Près.
So, when I heard there was such a place in Bangkok, I decided to go and check this out. When I entered the Bookshop Bar today, I was struck by its amazing decoration made by a new trendy interior designer in town. Immediately, I thought this was a more modern version of Harry Potter's joints! I looked around but J.K. Rowling was not around.
I wanted to sit and read quietly while having coffee but the place is too small and there were no comfortable seats to stay longer. Some more, the flying books are there only for decoration. It was too early in the afternoon to try the bar and too late to taste their food. However, the café & restaurant offers an interesting card that reads: librarian, bookmark, romance novel, short-story, introduction, chapter 1 or the End of all the Cocktails!
I find the place a bit too small to be a café for relaxation. So I guess it remains a bar with a menu option.

Beautiful little bar. Great cocktails.
If you like libraries, bookshops or Matilda, you will love this place. We only popped in in for a quick drink but wished we had had longer. Great cocktails and amazing decorations. We were also greatly entertained by the mills and boon type books left on all the tables :-)
