Library Bar Restaurant Review

: As its name would imply, The Library Bar inhabits a small, cozy space complete with couches and shelves of books. There's seating at the bar as well as around low lounge tables and a communal picnic-style table topped with metal. On offer is a short menu of refined pub fare to complement a selection of nearly 30 handcrafted and artisanal beers. Starters range from a beet and mozzarella salad to maple glazed pork belly skewers and roasted marrowbones with grilled ciabatta. Mains include the signature burger topped with grilled onions, sweet pickles, white cheddar, arugula and mustard. Cocktails take a literary turn and are named after classics, such as The Sun Also Rises made with Pama, Stoli Vanil and pineapple juice. Reservations are available for parties of six people or more.
