A new year and a new favorite bookstore cafe- life is good! We celebrated New Year at The Book & Bar in Portsmouth. It's our kind of spot - lots of good books in a beautiful space , plus a cafe with good noshes and drinks.
The owners' plan was for a European- style literary salon, with good books and fine wine. There is an eclectic selection of books, with an emphasis on art and literature. Mixed in are some great children's books, cookbooks - the same categories found in any bookstore, but with books most don't carry.
Beautiful setting - high ceilings, big windows, vintage-style light fixtures.
We'll be cheating on Barnes and Noble with our new bookstore cafe love.
