Photo finish Friday: “Drink in the writing”

Welcome to the World of Library Bars

By Graham Averill


Library pub

Booze and books just go together. Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Mailer…just about every single author ever—there’s a connection between fine spirits and fine words. And there are a handful of bars that make that connection quite literally, by serving their drinks amidst stacks of the world’s best literature. They’re library bars—cozy, often dark and kind of quiet watering holes where you can get a classic cocktail and thumb through a classic novel. Check out the gallery for several of the most picturesque library bars, and imagine yourself drinking Scotch in a place with many leather-bound books that smells of rich mahogany.

You will even see one from my hometown, Knoxville, TN, The Peter Kern Library in the Oliver Hotel.
