Beers, books... Battlestar Galactica.

At Rose City Book Pub, two of those things are certainly on tap and on the shelves — and we can’t guarantee you won’t run into any Cylons.

The quaint neighborhood hangout on Northeast Fremont Street is equal parts used bookstore, bar/bistro, and event space. It’s a place for the community to gather for weekly trivia nights (Wednesdays at 7:30 p.m.), chess competitions, live music, and author readings.

Need to get some work done? We know the feeling.

Nestle into a nook, grab a bite to eat (the grilled cheese comes with a donation to Oregon Food Bank), and feel the creativity of 40 years worth of literature flow through your fingers. Or you know, just enjoy a local brew.
