We opened our doors at this location in 2007, hosting a bookstore, inviting bar, and two event spaces. The Robeson Room, named after 20th-century renaissance man Paul Robeson, the larger of the two, seats about 80 people, and is where open mics, author events, and higher-attendance happenings take place. The smaller events space Paul’s Den seats about 40 people. Paul’s Den hosts our monthly book club and private gatherings.
