Cocktail (Koenji) 古本酒場コクテイル

Located in the rustic neighborhood Koenji, this bar also doubles as a used books store. Cocktail was first established in 1997 as just a used bookstore. In 2000, it started selling alcoholic beverages for visitors to enjoy. The bar is built within a machiya (traditional wood houses) with a counter near the books.

This is quite a interesting place: I mean how often do you go to a place that has tons of books where you have drinks? very rare: I shall say, It's something different one could try for a different atmosphere: just think of it like a bar with books so instead of coffee they serve alcohol.

So if you like drinking at a social gathering with friends: than come check this place out you definitely won't run out of things to say, and there are plenty of books that can be you conversation piece if you ever run of things to say.
