When you join one of the book clubs that meets at The Ivy, you join a community.

It's a joy that many readers in Baltimore, both Ivy booksellers and community members, convene their book clubs at The Ivy Bookshop. If you'd like to start a book club, or if you'd like your existing book club to begin meeting at The Ivy, we can't wait to hear! Contact us.

Plus, join us at After Hours until 8pm on Wednesday-Saturday for boozy beverages in addition to the coffee bar you know and love.
