    Even without this place is a must see, but it is magical when you can catch a concert. Great group of people.  more »

    Great place to buy a book, read, have some tea, relax, talk with people, and take in the slower pace. They sometimes host concerts, film nights, and cultural events too! I've been to Big Sur twice, an...  more »

    A "Don't miss it" place on the Big Sur coast. Nestled in the redwoods this was where Henrys' friend Emil lived when I first started coming to Big Sur. Now managed by Magnus Torin It's the coolest book store south of City Lights. (IMHO) There are a variety of events which take place here, among them being Big Sur Writing Workshops, the Big Sur Fashion Show, and many other programs including the various music events.

    A lovely little library on the coast. I never knew about Henry Miller, now I will have to read him.

    Didn't know much about miller, but i liked this place a lot. Browsed some literature, took a coffee, and played some pingpong under majestic reedwoods

    Great little bookstore with a really nice selection. They offer free coffee and you can play ping pong in the park. What more do you want?

    A cozy cabin provides some local authors as well as, of course, Henry Miller. There are occasional shows. Ive seen the Chili Peppers and John Waters here. Take a little hike through the woods in the back, hang out on the grounds and borrow a book. Great place to get away and get some culture.
