you see the word brewery and you may think bros after work reminiscing over artisanal ales, but raleigh, north carolina’s brewery bhavana redefines the concept to something so much more. yes, you’ll find a vast bar with your choice of libations, but what you’ll also find is a dim sum restaurant, a floral shop, and a library/bookstore that makes you feel right at home. conceptualized and realized by the nolintha family who brought every personal touch to the project including sourcing the bookstore’s goods from family and friends — some of the pages containing love notes you just might stumble upon while scooping a soup dumpling into your mouth. go casual chic for this one, with denim that can be unbuttoned under the dinner table if need be (their menu looks extensively divine). not that you’ll need to bring your own book to the library, but if you’re looking for a new read we’ve got our eyes on the reissue of sex and rage by eve babitz.
