This is by far the best place in Asheville to get a glass of wine and browse through some books. A relaxing place to sip wine and visit with your friends!!!!

Wow a funky cool place with a great vibe. Set up like a high end used bookstore but with couches and chairs and quiet nooks to read and work. Good wifi to boot. Coffee was good and the employees nice. They even have a bar with wine etc. Found a couple of fun books to buy and worked. Highly recommend... More

This place is amazing...Wonderful place to roam and look at books and other publications. Take Fido too, on lead. Lots of nooks and crannies with chairs and sofas to make yourself at home. Not only a wine and champagne bar but an Espresso bar too. Enjoy!

We didn't get to fully experience this place as we just stopped for a cup of coffee on our way out of town. It seemed a bit crowded, mainly around the coffee bar line...but excellent coffee!! The Carls Sandberg latte was a perfect blend of the sweetness and espresso. I was impressed :) Will be back for the champagne!!

This is our second visit, and we were certainly not disappointed. As a reader, the atmosphere and selection of books is incredible. We enjoyed a glass of champagne and browsed the stacks. This is a must visit.

On our first day into Asheville we were downtown just looking around and found this great bookstore (used and new) with cozy stacks of books, cozy couches and a CHAMPAGNE BAR!!!! How fun is that ? So we sipped champagne at 2 in the afternoon. As a Tenessean, I have just one thing to say-McKays- when are you going to... More

This is such a great location! You can browse used books, have an adult beverage, and bring your dog! What could be better? We were so impressed we went back for a second day.

This is a beautiful place. An antidote to the chain store experience. The little coffee bar tucked toward the back, with its coral counter chair and gorgeous granite top, are a treat to look at, and the coffee drinks are delicious. We didn't stay too long, but hope to swing back again later on during our visit. Charming.

We met here for our Eating Ashville tour and the place is so cool we came back for drinks afterward! Wander upstairs and down, exploring all the little nooks, crannies and little reading areas. It's dog friendly, so it's veritable AKC parade which adds to the atmosphere!
