If you're on the hunt for an aesthetically pleasing book store with a little more atmosphere than your local Barnes & Noble, Oxford Exchange in Tampa might just be what you're looking for. With an elegant gothic flair that would make Mortimer Goth proud, this hidden spot is an ideal place not only for reading but an entire day out. 

Situated just outside of the bustling downtown area of Tampa, this literary wonderland is waiting in all of its glory to be explored by you.

But it's more than just a place to read books. It's also a restaurant, store, and event space. Each has its own flair to offer, so be sure to give yourself plenty of time to wander around!

Since it's the bookstore that gave rise to the store's acclaim, it's undoubtedly one of the best features. It's a bookworm haven, decked out with cute areas to sit and indulge in a day of reading, writing, or just hanging out.

Just when your stomach starts to growl, you can visit the equally enchanting restaurant. Complete with natural lighting and a retractable glass roof to instantly transform this inside space into a lush outdoor one.

How many Starbucks cafes have that?

And surely not to be forgotten is their retail store, which has everything from kitchenware to wedding accessories.

And yes, you can even get married here!

It's a hidden gem that doesn't look like much from the outside, but don't judge this book by its cover.
