  • What a lovely and imaginatively-arranged book store! For book lovers this is a must visit. Be prepared to spend plenty of time to explore. There are so many categories of books and a good selection...

  • When you’re done with Asheville’s brewery scene, enjoy a glass of wine in a cozy used book store! Known for its flights of champagne, Battery Park Book Exchange actually offers a wide wine selection (though the champagne choices are top shelf and were perfectly paired with local chocolate truffles). The menu offers a book title theme: We enjoyed the “Moby Dip” to start, including pimento cheese and trout dips with warm toasted bread and hearty crackers. The “Goat Expectations” sandwich was a nice change of pace from basic offerings elsewhere; the warm goat cheese pairing with juicy strawberries was very nice. Continuing the “book” theme, even the check arrived in an old Dr. Seuss book, and patrons may add their own message inside. The books are also for sale and we took a few home. This is just a great wine bar and unique date spot and I’m sure we will return our next time back in Asheville.
  • Bookstore & Champagne Bar?!?!?! I mean...COME...ON...FOLKS...hands down one of the coolest spots to grab a drink, food, books, listen to live music and EVEN get married at in downtown Asheville! While visiting Asheville this past spring i went back two times for that decadent and delectable smoked trout and pimento cheese board with a side of Italian bubbly. So many nooks and crannies to enjoy a book and your meal. The staff seemed a bit overwhelmed 1 of the 2 days i visited possibly bc of the wedding but not a big deal, just gave us more time to slowly sip the prosecco and enjoy the 3 piece band. Would absolutely you stop in and take the experience all in!
  • Interesting concept that was a pleasant afternoon diversion. We had the Mimosa Flight with a Cheese Charcuterie in the bar area. Both were very good and then afterwards we browsed the bookstore. The Service was very good. The books are all used with some early editions in evidence. A nice place to unwind on off hours or non-peak times.
  • This place is such a little treasure. The concept of a book store that serves food, cocktails, and bakery items is brilliant. I love the different levels with books galore and seating on every level. My only complaint was the not so friendly hostess. I was alone and wanted to sit outside but the table offered to me was inside and felt out in the open. If I was with someone else I may not have minded but I felt a little on display. I asked if I could sit outside but she said nothing was available but a few minutes later sat a couple outside. I still enjoyed myself and my waiter was fantastic, I wish I remembered his name.
  • One of the best used book stores I've ever been to. It's like stepping onto a movie set. Buy some books and then sit down for a cocktail and a cheese plate. Great place.
