Bookstore Cafe & Bar

Bookstore Cafe & Bar

For over a decade, Housing Works Bookstore Cafe & Bar has established itself as a New York downtown institution and tourist destination. All of our stock is donated, and we are staffed almost entirely by volunteers, so 100% of our profits go to fund Housing Works' lifesaving services. There are free and low-cost events many nights of the week, an exceptional range of books, movies, and music, and a fully stocked cafe & bar. We pride ourselves in being a great place to visit, meet friends, relax, read, write, and shop! Our one-of-a-kind space is available for rent, and we host weddings and special events almost every weekend.
