There are many themed bars all over the world, from arcade bars, to horror bars, and even tiki-themed bars.

I recently was searching for a bar to go to and came across a themed bar that I had never seen before: a library or book-themed bar. Of course, my inner book-loving self had to search to see if there was more than one, and I found that there are actually a couple in New England.

If you love to read or just be surrounded by books, imagine sitting back with a book and drink in your hand (plus having some food). Sounds pretty great, right?

Whether you want to be in a library or bookstore atmosphere, there is a place in New England where you can do that with a drink in hand.

One thing that is pretty interesting about this location is that they have multiple rooms that you can even book for private events. You can hang out with your friends in the detention hall, living room, or rent out the entire restaurant.

The downside is that it is not open daily. Portsmouth Book & Bar is closed on Sunday through Wednesday. However, you can relax with a book and drink in hand while attending one of their beat night poetry jams. If you have any extra books, you can also try to sell them to the bookstore here (maybe it will pay for your drink).

If you love books, food, and drinks, you may want to start planning a trip to one of these places. Grab some friends and check out some authors you may not have read before.

New Hampshire is filled to the brim with awesome watering holes!
