    "Every great story deserves retelling" - Jelly Roll Morton
    Over the past few months, The Library has eased itself from prohibition speakeasy to Bournemouth’s finest Nola legitimate bar. The new menu settles the score, been the high standard serve synonymous with this legendary venue and the playful nature of the newly opened world. If you want the best drinks there is only one game in town, if you want playful adventure you need to return. Journey into the Absinthe abyss or Trad Jazz your way through the American playbook. You are all welcome here. Envie Boire at the start or end of the night.

    "Your heart's been aching but you're too shy to say it" - Richard Ashley
    Sazerac, Bourbon bootlegging mystery or are you look like a straight up kinda guy. Zhuangzi said in the fourth century “He who dreams of drinking wine may weep when morning comes”. Nobody orders wine around here “I am the last barman poet, I see America drinking the fabulous cocktails I make , Americans getting stinky on something I stir or shake, The sex on the beach,  The schnapps made from peach, The velvet hammer, The Alabama slammer.  I make things with juice and froth,  The pink squirrel, The three-toed sloth.  I make drinks so sweet and snazzy, The iced tea, The kamakazi , The orgasm , The death spasm, The Singapore sling, The ding-a-ling,  America you’ve just been devoted to every flavour I got, But if you want to get loaded, Why don’t you just order a shot? The Library Bar is open” – Brian Flanagan
