Interior of Vroman's 1894 bar

If you are interested in hosting your book club at The 1894, please visit our Contact Page and fill out the form to inquire about reservations or more information.

The 1894 is a book lover’s wine bar, located within Vroman’s Bookstore.

Offering craft beer, wine, and literary themed cocktails to perfectly pair with your favorite novel.

Wandering around a bookstore may be one of the best ways you can spend your time, but you know what makes it even better? Having some beer, wine and snacks to go with all of those great books.


Southern California’s oldest independent bookshop is daring us to make it out without draining our bank accounts, opening a sleek new wine bar just inside the entrance. As if Vroman’s Bookstore could get any better.
