Who said the book business is dead? BookCourt, according to reports, will soon be adding a bar:
DNAinfo: “People have been telling us to do it for 20 years,” said Zack Zook, who is the events and development manager at BookCourt, located at 163 Court St.
A bartender-bookseller will man the bar, said Zook, serving a wide selection of high quality local beers and wines from Brooklyn and Long Island.
The bar, that was approved for a wine and beer license by Community Board 2 last week, will be “an organic add-on,” said Zook, as customers can relax with a beer or browse the shelves with a glass of Chardonnay.
The report adds that the Zook is also planning to expand to the Catskills as well.
