Update 4/28/19 -Lark & Owl Booksellers is Open!
Ken and I had the pleasure of spending a little time with the ladies who are bringing us the new bookstore coming to Georgetown, Lark and Owl Booksellers.
The name of the very unique store comes from the 10 women owners who are half larks (morning people) and half owls (night people).
The Bistro will offer 16 Taps for handcrafted small batch cocktails on draft. Plus beer and wine.
Lark and Owl Booksellers will be partnering with The Wright Brothers from Austin for their Bistro.
The Bistro will begin full service in May.

The store is really pretty, it has been designed utilizing repurposed materials, the workmanship of local artisans, custom book shelves, and antiques.
Just a few of the surprises in store for us are Instagram photo ops, a retail area, two outdoor spaces, event space, kids space and young adult sections, plus family friendly activities.
They invite Monument Cafe diners including families over to their space while they wait for their table.
