Bubbles and Books: Battery Park Book Exchange and Champagne Bar, Asheville
The Battery Park Book Exchange and Champagne Bar is a book lovers dream! Combining two of the finer things in life, books and wine, the Battery Park Book Exchange prides itself on offering not only a wide genre of books, but a wide variety of wines as well.
I don't know about you, but I am all about old school bookstores. My favorite thing to do is pour myself a glass of red wine, kick back, and read a paperback. Battery Park Book Exchange allows you to kick back, focus on a great novel, and let them do the rest.
The store is located on a quiet corner in Asheville's city center, and is decked in plush couches and chairs. The lighting is perfect for reading, but dimmed enough to relax while enjoying some cheese and crackers. The store boasts two floors, and over 3,000 books, with genres ranging from American history and metaphysics, to religion and biography.
Better yet, they have a wine list with over 80 selections, including everything from Pinots and Sparkling Wine, to Spanish Cava. The bar is warm and inviting, and a perfect place for a romantic night out, or some alone time to catch up on a great book. If you start to get sleepy as a result from reading, there is a coffee bar on the other side of the store serving pastries and espresso!
The Battery Park Book Exchange is a local gem, and rightfully so. With the increase in technology use, and folks typing away at their local coffee shops, it's nice to have a little old school bookstore to turn to. Especially if they'll serve some bubbly!
Bring a used book and get a free glass of wine!
