“The Insider's Guide” Of Where To Go And What To Do In Chicago
Nothing screams bookworm paradise like a café and bookstore all in one. Here at Volumes Book Café, you can flip through books while sipping on a warm or cold drink. It is definitely a place to go to if you want something more unique than Barnes & Noble.
The founders created Volumes as a place for the community to come together. With this concept in mind, the book café often holds events for the public. They have a monthly open mic where visitors can listen to original work while sipping on a drink of their choice. They also have other events scheduled every month that guests of all ages can enjoy.
Speaking of ages, if you’re 21 or over, the cafe serves local beer and wine for $3-5. They also have desserts and other sweets for you to enjoy along with coffee of course.
The independent bookstore is a family owned business that two sisters started and encouraging young kids to read is of grand importance to them. Get cozy, bring your kids, and interact with the community of Wicker Park at this local book store and café.
