“Eclectic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2014 via mobile

Stopped in on a whim while walking downtown in the evening. Wonderful character and atmosphere - nice selection of champagnes and wine. A fun spot to enjoy books, champagne and great company.

“Heaven for any book and wine lover”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

This was a wonderful find. The atmosphere was so cozy and the wine selection was small but quality wines. Big pours. The seating arrangements throughout were perfect for conversations or people watching. The book choices were vast. These are used books and they know there value. Dogs are also allowed. Beer, coffee, desserts and cheese plates also offered. A must for any book lover!

“Remarkable!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2013

An unexpected experience. Walls of used, great books, a coffee bar, a wine bar, and a champagne bar. Light snacks available. We enjoyed a Bellini just before lunch. Seating areas throughout the two story establishment. I think some areas can be reserved. A super place to hang out!

“Surprise!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

What a great place to drink and browse. This was our first stop when arriving in Asheville and we will definitely return. Sitting in comfy leather chairs, sipping champagne and people watching, what could be better?

“Great place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2013 via mobile

We went in while walking around downtown. It is connected to Grove Arcade, but you must enter directly into the store. Wonderful selection of used books on three floors. The place is kind of like a maze with rows and rows of books everywhere. There are tables and chairs stashed here and there and it is pet friendly. We saw many dogs inside with their owners. They have two bars: one for wine/champagne and the other for espresso/coffee. Great place to relax, unwind or meet up with friends. It will be on our list when we return.
