They say that French is the language of love, and there’s a lot to love about Bibliotheca Bar and Book Exchange. Offering a perfect blend of cocktails and books (lots of books), it may be difficult picking out your cocktail of choice. We suggest taking your time flicking through their five-page cocktail menu of Singapore Slings, Pomegranate Tinis and the intriguing The Drink That Shall Not Be Named.
