The Book Club


The Book Club is an all day venue for every taste, crafting masterful cocktails with a good selection of wines and a quite wide range of food. You can have something as cheap as chips or decide to share a platter; however hungry you are, The Book Club will be provide something suitable.

This two floor venue is host to workshops, talks, cultural showcases, parties, Ping Pong matches, speed dating and some fab new music while you do it. Regular events range from 'Tweet Box', in which customers can request what music they want to hear and win a chance for a free cocktail, or the chance to immerse yourself in a world of cardboard boxes, scissors and sticky tape and a band playing in the background. For something a little different, head to The Book Club for something totally out of the ordinary.
