Wonderful! I love the lighting and the striped wall.
I've noticed this trend here but, it's getting harder and harder to find a Barnes & Noble store that is still open around here. In fact, I'm not sure where the nearest one is these days. I'm not a coffee drinker but, I did get an iced tea at one of these places a few years ago and sat down to go through a series of travel books to help me decide which one to buy.
Cool! A coffee break while reading a book :)
Looks good. But I dislike Starbuck's mega-corporation attitude, but I guess that's the way things go.
They've combined two of my favorite things: a book store and a great cup of coffee. Nice shot.
Our Barnes & Noble had a coffee shop too but the store closed last year. Such a shame because I liked that place a lot.
To answer your question, Phoenix Union High School closed back in the 80's but the building has now been incorporated into the ASU campus. ASU now has a huge campus in downtown Phoenix and it has changed the whole dynamic of the area. What was once a place that became deserted at sunset is now alive with people and activities. The growth is unbelievable. ASU has built several gorgeous buildings downtown and a few older buildings have been reused. I've featured several of the newer buildings on my site but, it's been a while since I posted those. I'll have to get some more up soon.
So...this is certainly my kind of place! :)Léia
si ca continue, bientot Starbuck a la maison blanche ;))
We have to drive an hour away to visit a Barnes and Noble. Ours looks just like this.
Well Starbucks have just opened their 1st store in India in Mumbai..
Nice place, well captured. We don't have Starbucks here, but I visited one in Japan.
While you go get yourself a coffee, I'll be perusing books...
It looks like they have plenty of stuff for sale, but is there somewhere to sit down and enjoy the coffee (and preview a book)? I must keep my distance from Starbucks at this time of the year. Eggnog lattes are a dangerous weakness.
I do love bookstores with coffee shops attached!
I'm not into coffee but I bet there is some other treat there to tempt me!
Very common here because square footage is so expensive, but I think it is funny how so much space is given over to selling things rather than chairs to sit and sip.
Great looking floor! I like how the stands are well spaced too and I imagine the place will get packed with people, especially now that Christmas is fast approaching. Just two months today to Christmas Eve, aaagh!
Don't drop in here as much as I used to given the shift in the economy...I use the library more and drink my coffee at home... ;(...you got a great angle on this..what kind of lens did you use?
They all look the same, don't they?
I have been visiting "Barnes & Noble" in NYC.I love bookshops with places like this....
Browsing books always makes me need to stop for a coffee
I can't decide whether it's comforting or depressing that no matter where you go, they're all identical.
