  • Very special and pretty library. Inside there are used books and more. With the books they created special structures and a kind of labyrinth. On two floors, there are areas where you can stop to read...  more »
  • I went to see it based on photos I'd seen on-line - more as a tourist than a shopping destination. And in that sense it doesn't disappoint. There are lots of camera-worthy displays (and lines forming ...  more »

  • Wow.... I've never been in a store quite like this one. The vibe here is kind of like the world ended and they collected all the books they could and stored them in a hidden under ground library made from the scraps of the remaining world before everything was destroyed. There are books of all kinds. Take the time to walk around and see the books and artwork. You might find your favorite section hidden in the second floor behind a hidden vault or just past the tunnel of books!
  • AMAZING experience! Don't be fooled by the title, they have comics & records too! If you check in on Yelp you can get a 15% off used books discount coupon. The whole place was mesmerizing, I was there with my sister for at least 3 hours! It was incredible. You have to go to the very very top floor and way in the back past the vendors you'll find that infamous book tunnel :)
  • It's not just a bookstore, it's an experience. You can spend hours looking through the upstairs labyrinth of you want to, there are so many places to sit and read, and the whole store has a character to it that makes it inviting to explore for the sake of exploring, and not just a place to purchase a book. There are some great shops upstairs with original art for sale, made by some very talented artists, and sometimes they host temporary art displays. There's also a section for movies and music, which I haven't really browsed much, but looks like it might be a good place to get old records. It's a great store to visit, even if your not looking for anything new to read. Although between the wide selection of books, music, and art available, it is pretty hard to leave empty - handed.
  • Writing a review for this bookstore won't give a justice of the whole experience you will get once you visit it. I do really enjoy visiting this bookstore to check out some vinyls or meeting the artists at their shops upstairs. Attending events occasionally is also awesome and undesirable, the good vibes, friendly staff and inviting atmosphere are amazing. I'd definitely come back
  • What a fun bookstore! The upstairs in incredible. Tons of art and interesting sculptures. If you love bookstores, it is worth the trip to downtown to visit this place. I loved it!
