Trident Booksellers and Café Adds Second Floor
Congratulations to Trident Booksellers and Café, Boston, Mass., which has expanded to the second floor of its building on Newbury Street, adding more café space and another bar (also serving beer and wine), and increasing its book inventory, particularly in the children's and fiction sections, plus creating a new section for gifts and games. The upstairs space will also be used for community events like author readings, cooking demonstrations, arts and crafts and the increasingly popular Friday Night Trivia. There's a projector and screen that will allow the store to host movie and interactive games nights. In addition, the upstairs café space will be available for private functions and events. The new second floor space is 2,500 square feet, adding to the 4,250 square feet on the first floor.

Noting that the new space opened just two weeks ago, marketing and events coordinator Courtney Flynn, daughter of founders Bernie and Gail Flynn, said, "We're very excited, and we're still adjusting to the stairs!"
Trident, which carries 20,000 titles, was founded in 1984. The café has become a popular brunch spot and serves food until midnight every day of the week.
The store said it feels confident that its "unusual blend of food, books, and booze will continue to attract customers who are looking for something out of the ordinary, something unique, something only available in Boston."
