Stopped in the warm up and enjoy a cocktail. My wife was in heaven. Very nice furnishings to read and relax. Staff is very helpful providing advice on champagne. Unfortunately, we didn't have more time to explore the books.

We decided to stop in on a cold but sunny Asheville afternoon. A half bottle and a cheese tray would be lunch. Good Choices in the Champagne and the cheese tray was yummy. Nice to sit and enjoy your champagne. No being rushed to finish,...More

Located in the corner of a shopping arcade worth a visit in its own right for its lovely interior architecture, this is a unique watering hole and book store. They offer an excellent selection of Champagne and other bubbly in pretty flutes, with some lovely...More
