If you’ve never visited Guelph’s own Bookshelf downtown, you’re in for a treat. Whether books or movies are your preference, the unique stylings of the Bookshelf ensure that every visitor leaves entertained. A multi-purpose cultural hotspot, the Bookshelf draws in visitors from not only Guelph, but the surrounding area as well.

Its bookstore is one of the few remaining independent bookstores in the region. It offers top class service in an inviting atmosphere. The store is bright and is stocked with all the latest titles and trends, making it simple to find the same selections you can get at a chain store.

Here’s where the Bookshelf blows its competition out of the water: it adds a full-service resto-bar and a cinema to its repertoire, something that no ordinary bookstore can offer. The eBar & Greenroom menu includes a wide variety of appetizer and entree options to delight any palette. There are also vegetarian and vegan options which make eBar’s inclusive selections second-to-none.

Another Bookshelf feature is the cinema. Located in the upper level of the two-storey landmark, the cinema offers unparalleled access to hard-to-find films. It often features independent films, or critically-acclaimed flicks that aren’t necessarily blockbuster hits. Their “dinner and a movie” combo for 19.99 includes the majority of their entree menu and is the perfect option for an affordable night on the town.

The choice location in the heart of Downtown Guelph makes the Bookshelf easily accessible. Whether by car, bus, bike or foot; The Bookshelf is a prime destination for any occasion. Stop in anytime, you’re sure to find something you love.
