The swank basement of Marin is so much more than an extra bar — it’s an oasis for readers. Like a man cave for the highly literate, the room is decorated with plush fabrics, sturdily upholstered furniture, and miles and miles of books. All of them are real, all are ready to be pulled from their shelves for your reading pleasure. To accompany your library visit, the bar is stacked with speciality cocktails. Trust us, there is nothing like cradling a leather-bound book in one hand and an amber-hued Old Fashioned in the other.
