My place is close to nightlife, public transport, and the city center. You’ll love my place because of giant size scrabble board, above a book store. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers. The space is carefully curated to celebrate NC Authors filled with books and art work in honor of our literary heritage.

Top Shelf: A Literary Loft is an absolute delight to behold. From the steps painted like a stack of books, to the giant floor Scrabble board, stained glass windows, and honor system books for sale, not a detail was spared. G was very accommodating with our group. We were only the…
