Book Club makes it official on 3rd Street

The coming soon signage is now up at Book Club, the independent bookstore featuring a cafe that's in the works for 197 E. Third St. between Avenue A and Avenue B.

As I first reported on July 15, two East Village residents are behind this project. Erin Neary, who's operating the space with her fiance, Nat Esten, told me previously that the book portion of the storefront will carry a broad selection of adult fiction, non-fiction and a children's section ... they'll also offer a variety of greeting cards and gifts. As for the cafe section, they'll be serving MUD coffee, among other items.

"As East Village residents for the last decade, we're committed to having Book Club be a celebration of the spirit and diversity of the neighborhood," Neary said.

The shop has a website with a sign up for a mailing list ... as well as an Instagram account, where you can find the top photo.

Does this place have a beer wine license? The signage suggest that.

Yes. CB3 approved a beer-wine license for the address (previous the bar No Malice Palace) last month. I linked to the previous report about this — from July 15 — at the bottom of the post.

Woohoo bookstore! Much better than another GNC/Chase/Duane Reade.
