Galerie Saint-Hubert (also known as Galerie de la Reine and Galerie du Roi), is a rather posh looking street and the bookstore which bears its name is no exception. The interior of the store looks amazing, with the beautiful wooden shelves and the dominant chandeliers that both contribute to creating a very particular ambiance of this space.
We were very impressed with the selection of books housed on the shelves of Librairie Saint Hubert. Besides lots of titles dealing with fine arts, in a more classical meaning of this term, the store's offer also proves that it's in close touch with the recent artistic trends. There are sections devoted to web-design, graphic design or street art and other topics which add a very fresh flavor to this bookstore. You can also find interesting postcards and really cool posters in the smaller room on the ground floor. Books in English, although not concentrated in one place, but rather scattered around according to the topic they deal with, form a considerable part of the stock.
