Find a cocktail inspired by your favorite book at Thompson’s Bookstore

This speakeasy may not actually peddle books, but it provides the perfect locale for a bookworm’s night out.

For those who enjoy a literary discussion over drinks, Thompson’s Bookstore is a must for your next happy hour or night out. The speakeasy, cigar lounge, and event space make the perfect venue for getting together with friends — or even cozying up with a drink and a book of your own.

Let these three unique, literature-inspired cocktails spark discussion at your next night out:

  • Grapes of Wrath: Inspired by Steinbeck’s iconic novel, this cocktail includes blended whiskey, lemon juice, simple syrup, egg white, and a red wine blend.
  • Cinnamon and Gunpowder: Blended whiskey, soda, cinnamon, and star anise garnish come together in this drink inspired by the swashbuckling love story in Eli Brown’s novel of the same name.
  • Killing Pablo: This mix of blanco tequila, maraschino liqueur, jalapeño-infused agave nectar, and lime juice is almost as thrilling as Mark Bowden’s book about Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar.

Plan your night at the speakeasy.
