Books & Books' new location in the Coconut Grove neighborhood of Miami had a soft opening on Saturday. At 3409 Main Highway, the two-story space will "eventually include a wine and beer bar on the first level," the Miami Herald wrote. "There will also be a seating area upstairs facing the window so that customers can gaze out on the street." The store's tall bookshelves are from the original Books & Books store at Aragon Avenue and Salzedo Street.
Books & Books owner Mitchell Kapan told the paper that the store is still taking shape. "I like to get the feel of a place," he said.
Books & Books now has 10 stores, including a gift shop, in the greater Miami area and the Cayman Islands.
