Transforming your bookshop experience with a cocktail bar and a cultural events programme

Books, cocktails and events...

Just two minutes' walk from Tottenham Court Road tube station, Waterstones TCR is central London's most progressive bookshop. With bookshelves nestled amongst a brutalist interior, a curated soundtrack alongside our boutique vinyl selection, you will find plenty of spaces to read, work or socialise in a setting like no other.

Down in the basement, Lucky Jim's Bar serves artisan espresso coffee, hand-made sandwiches & small plates, and a range of sweet & savoury treats throughout the day. By night, swap coffee for cocktails and enjoy one of our literarily delicious house creations, with a daily happy hour and an ample supply of beers & wines to boot. 

Our inclusive events programme represents the diverse interests of our customers, featuring a superb line up of the most exciting authors and poets; food and drink; and film and comedy. Through our events we champion feminism, LGBTQ+ and marginalised voices. 

Most of all, we pride ourselves on bookseller knowledge and enthusiasm. Whether it's contemporary fiction, non-fiction, poetry or a forgotten gem, our booksellers love to talk about their passion: a good read.
