Welcome to The Book Tavern!



Founded in 2004, our original location was a humble stall at the Barnyard Flea Market. We opened up downtown on 8th street right off Broad and a year later we moved to 1026 Broad Street in the Henry Kennedy Building. Eight years of growth saw us bursting the seams and we were fortunate enough to find space across from our friends, The New Moon Cafe, in the JB Whites Building.

Since moving, we’ve been able to expand our community programming and increase our selection in every category. Hopefully the future holds the fulfillment of our original concept which included a tavern aspect. We couldn’t have gotten where we are with out tremendous support from people in the community and hope you’ll join our team.


Here are pictures from our old store location.
