When you want to slip away into the darkness, pretend you've been transported to days of ole to a library bar filled with books, pleasurable cocktails, and playful appetizers, well, this is where you go. Go for the edamame ... it's NOT your average bean.
Almost as many beers as books! – I just checked out Library Bar last Sat., and I have to say it's one of the new favorites personally. For anyone who appreciates the finer beers, this is it. Arrogant Basterd, Chimay, Three Philosopher's etc. You have to check out the list. It's like a mashup between BevMo and the library. They've got seats and booths with walls lined with all kinds of books to browse through. One of the servers was a little slower in identifying just which beers I wanted to try, but she was probably new. And, all of the the staff was very friendly and glad to help. I wish all libraries were like this!
More More More..... – Library Bar is one of those cool types of places that keep you wanting more. You walk into the sultry atmosphere where a beautiful "Tyson" look a like checks to see your legal status. Depending on when you go, you can find a laywer that needs to get the edge off, a salesman who is "here on business", or a local who finds knitting and sipping on a single malt at the Library is what fills her needs.
The Bartenders will guide you into finding the best thirst quencher to suit your taste buds. You can order your martini shaken not stirred, but you can get that anywhere; at the Library Bar the beer list is what you want to go for. Anything from a nice Russian Stout to a sweet smokey lager is what you find here. Ladies if beer isn't your "thing" don't fret, they have a nice Apple Ale that is sure to change your mind.
Once you decided on your drink for the moment you can slip into one of the many comfortable spots they have set up...even a semi private room with plush velvet seating. The music is up to you since they have set up an amazing juke box with an nice selection that will suit all tastes.
Having been there on several different nights and times, I can say that it is always a new and great experience. If you're lucky you'll even get to meet one of the owners, who is too hot for words!
For me, it keeps me coming back for more, and more, and more.
GREAT BARTENDERS GREAT PLACE – I went here with a friend on feb 16 (fri) and had a rockin time. I heard all about this place and had to come see for myself. It is unlike any other bar in town. The bartenders were good looking and helpful when it came to choosing my ale. It got really crowded and everyone seemed to be having a good time. I highly rec. this place it's a nice escape from the hollywood bar scene.

cozy, but not too small, upscale bar for downtown grownups. – i love this bar. after visiting all the echo park/silverlake nouveau-mullet hipster bars, this is refreshingly grown up and sophisticated. great bartenders, an intimate feel with lots of places to sit, drink and converse. i will be a regular here.
Very cool atmosphere – This place recently opened and it seems to be popular already amongst the downtown happy hour crowd, we actually left last night because it was too crowded. The bar is solid marble, all the seating is very comfortable and the TV is not the prominent feature which is so rare. The beer selection is top notch but not very wide. Service is great if you are sitting at the bar, but drops off dramatically the further you get from the bartenders. Overall this is our new favorite bar downtown, just wish they had a smoking patio.
Owners of Studio City's Sapphire and Silver Lake's 4100 bar set up library-themed drinking den in central downtown loft district. – In Short
Occupying a ground-floor retail space below downtown's Library Court Lofts, adjacent to a Wolfgang Puck Express, this literary-minded lounge offers a sophisticated drinking space and after-work social scene. Catering to the upscale residents of the area and not the beer-swiggin college frat crowd, it features decadent herringbone wood foors under exposed brick walls and oversized window shutters. An elaborate Italian marble bar and pounded metal-topped tables make for lingering conversation amid eclectic jukebox selections.
