When someone refers to the finer things in life, you might automatically think of a life of luxury, but we think of "the little things" that bring us joy. Two of those things are a good drink and an even better book. You'll find a lot of both of these "finer things" at this North Carolina bookstore and bar, where there's a whole lot more than meets the eye.
Battery Park Book Exchange & Champagne Bar is a hidden wonder of Asheville, NC. The haven of literature has some of the most unique finds in the state, with thousands of titles on history, gardening, poetry, the American South, psychology and countless other genres.
While you're perusing the selection of used books, you can order one of the 80+ wines from their massive selection. From reds, whites, sparkling, rosé, champagne and more, you're guaranteed to find something that suits your palette.
There's a full wait staff ready to cater to your every need, so you can order lite bites in addition to your booze. A charcuterie board is essential to order alongside your champagne flute. You'll start questioning whether you're in a bookstore or a full-fledged vineyard.
If you want to swap some of your greatest books from home for champagne and food instead, you can arrange a book exchange. If it's one book or a whole collection, you can text 828-467-0074 and ask for Thomas.
Grab your finest faux fur coat and besties for a trip to Asheville because you can't find affordable boujee-ness like this just anywhere. The best part is, it's a dog-friendly environment. Even your four-legged friends will have on their fur coats, ready to go.
Whether you're trying to bask in the last bit of warmth for this year or cozy up on a couch, you can pick from outdoor or indoor seating.
North Carolina is the place to be regardless of the season. For more fall adventures, you can board this scenic train ride. As we approach the beloved holiday season, you need to visit this actual Christmas town also in NC.
