I stopped down at The Library to meet up with a few friends the other day.
I had never been there up to that point, nor have I heard of it.
But it is right across from Shootz.
When I first got there the people I was meeting were sitting outside and I was promptly greeted by a waitress asking what I would like to drink.
I asked what drafts they have and she knowingly rattled off everything they had.
Which was a nice change from the usual "I'll check" reply that I get other places.
As the evening chilled off, we moved inside where we got some appetizers.
The decor inside has a library appeal down to the menus being actually in books.
The lighting at each table was the green book lamps which added to the details.
The appetizers we received were a cheeze platter, and an assorted sampler of sweet potato fries, potato skins, wings, and zuchini somethings...I didn't try any of the food but the reviews at the table were that everything was really good.
While seated inside we were visited more than a few times by the bar staff asking if we were okay, need another drink, etc.
Since the place looks so interesting we took a stroll around, then upstairs.
Upon taking the steps upstairs there is 3 more rooms, and 2 more bars.
The first room has what looks to be a brand new pool table, very classy looking.
Beside the pool room is the inside bar.
The next room over is more seating with tables and a door that leads to the patio in back.
Several people were seated outside on the patio as it was a very comfortable night.
It seemed like the type of place to bring a date so you could comfortably talk without having to shout over music.
Outside here, there is also another bar.
In my opinion, the upstairs would be "the spot" for a happy hour or a get together with friends.
I don't know how busy they get on the weekend, but lots of room to move around and 2 bars to work with.
Overall, a classy atmosphere, great service, excellent drink selection, and plenty of room to find a comfortable spot for whatever your plans are.
