“Poor service and too stuffy”

Battery Park Book Exchange and Champagne Bar
Ranked #3 of 119 Shopping in Asheville
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 21 April 2014

Tried to enjoy some champagne here last Friday while enjoying a seat in one of the myriad of places you can find tucked away, however the server never even gave us attention, while helping others in the same area who had red wine and other drinks. The upper floor was just too stuffy and warm, not great for perusing the shelves or finding a place to sit. Most books we saw were ok and seemed to be from libraries as they all have plastic to cover the book jackets, not really what I was looking for. Enjoyed other book shops in Asheville more on this visit.

Usually used books smell really bad. Like grandmas house. But this place is really swanky and clean. No smell. Thousands of books ranging from inexpensive to expensive first editions. Nice shelves and rugs and they have food. Get the cheese platter and champagne. Very nice store.

We stopped in for a quick beer and a snack and were so impressed by the swanky yet friendly atmosphere and the fact that dogs were allowed. The beer selection was great and the asiago chips were delicious. As a book, beer and dog lover, I feel like this place was made for me. Such a neat place!

A treasure trove! There are hundreds and hundreds of books in a most amazing series of rooms and floors. Very comfortable area for relaxing and reading. We had a bottle of Prosecco and some light snacks,which were very tasty. Great find!
