  • A very cool place, I'd never seen a bar/bookstore before! The drinks were good and the menu had some nice offerings. There were plenty of books to browse, but when it's busy the place can get a...  more »
  • Stopped by on a Friday. What a lovely evening it was. Wine & cheeseboard on the patio with live music inside. Fabulous service! BOBE has a European flair about it. There are lots of little nooks to enjoy a glass of wine. I originally came here to look for a book, but I got so mesmerized with the wine and the music I didn’t do much browsing of books. Will be back for exploring and perhaps another glass of wine or two.
  • It's definitely an interesting store to visit. The book selection is pretty thin, but the atmosphere is great. If your looking for something specific your kind of out of luck, but if you want to grab a glass of wine and wander randomly, this isn't a bad place to do it. Definitely be careful with your wine while going around those blind corners!
  • What a disappointment. This store stands against the spirit of what a beautiful thing a book store can be. Be warned: you are not welcome to read or browse any of the books here. You may look at the titles and make purchases, but that is all. There are aggressive signs plastered all over the store informing patrons that their selection is for buying, not reading. If you want a warm, welcoming book store, look elsewhere.
  • Love books? Love Italian soda? Fan of wine? And you love dogs, too?!? You have found your go-to place in Asheville
  • If you want to feel like la creme de Bohemian Intelligencia from the 1930s, this is the place! Well curated books are everywhere; the coffee, wines and service have always been high quality. The food choices are limited, but well done. Get lost in a maze of books and wine with a friend in this beautiful Art Deco building.
