Amazing ambience and cool theme with fantastic desserts and drinks to match. However, I find the opening hours misleading as it states 'till late' but they don't accept patrons close to midnight, as I found out on my first visit. Condescending front-of-house staff but aside from that occasion everything is is fine.
Delicious desserts, although they rotate the menus and it is sometimes nowhere near as good as other times. The cocktails are fantastic, if pricey. It's a cool bar with an awesome aesthetic, good vibes, however the wait staff can be rude and stand-offish at times. The last time I was there, we ended up leaving before ordering anything, because we asked to be seated in one of the side rooms, since it was very loud in the main bar and we wanted a quieter environment - however, despite the fact that both of the side rooms were clearly half-empty while the bar was nearly full, the wait staff member we asked was very rude and reluctant to fulfill our request. I work in customer service myself and understand that some requests can be difficult to accommodate, but this one didn't seem unreasonable.
Basically, The Library used to be an absolute top-notch venue, and it doesn't quite measure up these days, but still a very good bar which I would still recommend. Better on a 2-4-1 night, though.
Love this place, amazing cocktails and desserts. The cocktails are a little pricey ($19-$22) but are delicious. The staff are very attentive, always filling your water glass and asking if you need more drinks so that you can sit and relax without needing to go to the bar and order/wait. It is very cosy so better for couples or small groups. The walls are lined with books so it actually looks like a library. Great atmosphere and I love having pre or post dinner drinks here after going to Chow next door.
Went there on a Saturday night. We had two cocktails from their special Xmas menu. First I was a bit sceptic if I would really get what's the description but the coctail tasted exactly just like that. $21 was not cheap for a cocktail but it was delicious and well worth it. The place is cosy and very inviting and the service is great.
Cosy atomsphere, staff try their best to get you a table asap because it is very popular and a very small room. Waited quite a while to get even a space at the bar, but to be expected with its popularity. Tried their dessert burger for WOAP and was very good.
Expensive and a little exclusive but very classy and elegant. The walls are lined with books and it is a popular place so there's often a wait for a table. During Christmas be sure to try their special cocktails and you won't be disappointed.
A must do by anyone. It feels like I'm at my grandmother's when I come here as she has the same carpet in her home! I've been here a few times and always have something different. Only thing is that sometimes the deserts are too rich!! Yet I'll still come back again. Staff are always very attentive and fantastic.
