We can all go to a number of coffee shops and sit there curled up with a good book. Heck, you can probably go to a bar and do the same. But have you ever been to a bar that is also a book store? Probably not! The Wild Detectives in Dallas is looking to change that. The book store has selections of not only great coffee but also great alcoholic beverages to enjoy while you read a good book.
Books are spread out on the shelves of the store and act as part of the decor. The store has everything from romance to sci-fi so no matter what genre you're into, you'll definitely find something to suit your taste. And while we're on the topic of taste, the shop has a variety of beverages to go with your new book. You could order one of their summer cocktails such as the Scarlett Letter and Shakespeare Sister or you can go for any of the beer, wine, coffee, and teas they have on hand.
The shop has both indoor and outdoor space to fit your mood. They often have live music on their outdoor stage for you to enjoy as well. You can more than likely find the album of the artist inside the shop at any given point as they also sell records from all over the world.
The Wild Detectives is open from 10 a.m. to midnight every day of the week except for on Mondays when they are open from 2 p.m. to midnight.
