A quaint little laneway bar that can be found at the top of Hindley Street (east end), the Bibliotheca Bar & Book Exchange recently celebrated their second birthday. As you would expect, the name says it all – a quiet bar with lots and lots of books, most of which are vintage. If you would love a place to enjoy a book next to a quality cocktail, then this is the place for you, and Bibliotheca also operates like a proper library by allowing you to take their books home to return at a later date.

The bar is styled with a European cigar lounge feel, complete with black and dark timbers across the bookshelves, steps, bar and tables, as well as leather seating that gives it a classic feel. Tying in well with this theme is the great mural that will really grab your eye, as inspired by Russian book, ‘The Master and Margarita’. You will find plenty of international spirits stocked behind Bibliotheca’s bar to order to your liking, plus a small menu of gourmet bar eats.

Not afraid to get creative with their cocktails, try one of Bibliotheca Bar’s inventive mixes or check out one of their upcoming special events with (often free) cocktail and wine tastings.
