BIB•LI•O•BAR: a bar relating to books; also, a bar for book lovers
We hope that BIBLIOBAR will soon be a bookstore and bar located in North Dallas. We will offer general interest books, graphic novels, bookish gift items, and events with a focus on the community and bringing amazing authors to the area!
This won't just be another bookstore for you to run in and run out. Our store will encourage new and seasoned readers to pick up a book and a drink in a casual, cozy setting, making our store the perfect spot to discuss your favorite books and authors or to sit quietly and read to your heart's content! All of our new bookish friends (you!) will be able to drink the best wines, try local craft beer and ciders, locally roasted coffee, and small bites at our bar!
North Dallas will have a new place to hang out in a fun and comfortable environment for the whole family. Designed for reading and discussion, we plan to have a variety of exciting events every week, including author readings, wine tastings, game nights, and book clubs for all ages. It will be your favorite place to have a wine with the ladies, play date with the kids, game night with the guys, or an afternoon with the family. We will have a dedicated children's space, offering the best children’s books, story times (while mom and dad have a drink!), educational workshops, and more.
WE NEED YOUR HELP to build a new home for the strong literary community of Dallas. I am asking my fellow book lovers to raise $50,000, which is about half of the estimated start-up budget. This money will help fund our initial inventory orders, build out of the store, furnishings, technology costs, and coffee and tap set up for the bar, but it will also serve as a proof-of-concept to prospective property owners and lenders. Every dollar we raise beyond the goal is a dollar we won't need to take on in start-up debt. If you would love to see a bookstore in north Dallas, please consider contributing any amount you can.
Update as of 12/24/2017: We're taking January off to explore some potential opportunities and attend the annual American Bookseller Association conference in Memphis, TN for training and networking with other booksellers. We'll be back at it in February!
We'll be at community events selling great new books and bookish gifts. Come out and show your support for a local, independent bookstore!
