“Trading Books by the Thousands and Wines By the Glass.”


Oenophiles bibliophiles take note! The Battery Park Book Exchange & Champagne Bar offers the marriage of two of earth’s finest pleasures, books and wine, side by side. Peruse thousands of books in dozens of categories while sipping a fine wine, sparkling wine or Champagne.


Our used book selection is constantly changing. We specialize in books about North Carolina, American History, the Civil War and the American South. Check out our collections on gardening, architecture, poetry or psychology. Interested in selling your books? The BPBE is currently purchasing books in excellent condition. Call for more details or to set up an appointment.


The BPBE opens early and serves coffee and pastries at both indoor and outdoor tables. The wine list features more than 80 selections and changes often. Enjoy your drink alongside a cheeseboard, trout dip or a local dessert.
