We happened up on the Tattered Cover book store when my husband went to see if Union Station was yet re-opened after its renovations. It wasn’t, but I was glad that it was steps away from this lovely bookstore in the LoDo area!
The building itself is historic, having been the thriving Morey Mercantile building from 1884 to the early 1950’s. Thankfully, the building was saved from decline in 1990 by Joyce Meskis who purchased it and lovingly transformed it into the current book store.
The floor space is huge – ample room for so many books on every topic and genre! Easy to lose someone in here! Largest card and stationery section ever seen in a bookstore! I was in paper heaven!
Nice touch with the café - makes you want to read and linger for hours! A lovely relaxing place indeed! I spent so much time on the ground floor, I never made it upstairs!
If we visit Denver again, we could easily dedicate a morning to visiting the bookstore to browse, read and have a coffee! Lovely ambience and you really get the sense of the historic nature of the building on the inside as well!
