Book + Bottle announces arrival on 600 Block

Storefront of Book + Bottle

Are you ready to cozy up with your favorite book and a gorgeous bottle of wine? We’ve had our eye on a new business teasing their arrival in the Burg for months now. Called Book + Bottle, they lured us in with the promise of being “a bookstore with wine | a wine bar with books”. 

The wait is over and the mystery unlocked. Book + Bottle announced to their newsletter subscribers on August 7 that they’ll be moving into the vacant space at 17 6th St N formerly occupied by Holmes Shoe Repair in the Shoppes at First. Fingers crossed, their target date for opening their bookstore/wine bar double threat is December 2019.

As the shop was beloved by the community, they will be beginning a build-out in the near future. It will include “adding bookshelves, a bar, comfy seating, and restoring some super cool historical architectural features”.

In the meantime, we highly recommend signing up for their email newsletter. Yesterday we received the first of their “readers + drinkers digest” and the monthly book + bottle pairing suggestion was the quality content we’re looking for in life.

Slice into a thrilling crime novel with a robust pinot noir, or sip rosé while turning the page on the next great hardcover romance. More than just a shop to sip and read in, Book + Bottle will serve as literary guides, matching your artistic taste with your palate preferences. Yea, give us all the culture please and thank you.

Book + Bottle is located at 17 6th St N, St. Pete FL 33701. Follow them on Facebook and Instagram to stay up to date with previews of the space, news, and more.
