About Us


The Book Tavern Illustration 2022

Founded in 2004, our original location was a humble stall at the Barnyard Flea Market. We opened up in Downtown Augusta on 8th street right off Broad, and a year later we moved to 1026 Broad Street in the Henry Kennedy Building. Eight years of growth saw us bursting the seams and we were fortunate enough to find space across from our friends, The New Moon Cafe, in the JB Whites Building. In 2022, it happened again and we moved down the block to our current location next to Nacho Mama's.

This last move has been a tremendous joy our new space not only accommodates more books but is more open and vibrant. We continue to work on expanding the scope of our inventory and community programming and look forward to the years to come as we fulfill all the ways we imagine a bookstore is a vital part of Augusta.

While we're still not quite a Tavern, we do carry zero-proof beverages and other non-alcoholic delights which you can purchase cold at the counter or buy a four-pack or bottle to take home.

Finaly, we couldn’t have gotten where we are without tremendous support from people in the community and hope you’ll join our team of readers.
