This place is a book-lover's dream! I wandered for hours looking at books and immersing myself in the beautiful atmosphere before making a few purchases. My traveling companion purchased a drink and found a comfortable nook where she could relax and wait for me. This is a very unique and special book store. Don't miss it!

We accidentally found this place, and we are so happy we did. Nice selection of wine and champagne with friendly bartenders. We enjoyed browsing the nice selection of books while sipping champagne. We even bought a book! Ver nice atmosphere.

what a delightful discovery! every town should have a place like this. Lots of lovely bubbles by the glass, as well as wines, beer and even coffee. Oh yes there is also food, but we only had champagne. And you can take your beverage and peruse the racks and stacks of great reading material. All this in a beautiful set... More

This is not your average bookstore! Located in the Grove Arcade, one of Asheville's treasures, you will find a great selection of books, can enjoy a beverage (wine, been, cocktail, coffee) and have a bite to eat. Their cheese plate is substantial and they even have gluten free crackers. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. There are many cozy places... More

if you like bookstores, be sure to stop in and wander though the many shelves and rooms of this delightful shop. We started with lattes (excellent!) and ended with a couple of tap beers (local brew) and left with a half dozen great finds. Had a great time and great conversation with the owner. Long live the independent bookstore!

This two-story bar and book store combines great cocktails, wines, champagnes, coffee and small plates that you can then roam the many chambers in search of the perfect seating nook. A great selection of books surrounds you and gives you something to take home.

Our favorite used bookstore-we have visited many times. It's an interesting layout with lots of corners and hidey holes. my only complaint is that there is lots of seating very close to the shelves-if someone is camping out with a group of friends, it can be tough to get close to the shelves. All are categorized and fairly well organized.... More

We enjoyed wandering through this wonderful used bookstore in Asheville very much! What a selection! Dogs welcome. Champagne , coffee and other delightful offerings available. The atmosphere is worth stopping in for alone. Don't miss it.

A well stocked, climate controlled, comfortable book store is an oasis for the soul. Find one that has crafted cocktails and this makes the place one you never want to leave.
