About The Guide

Hello! We are Sonja and Ivan. And this is our Bookstore Guide - an amateur guide to book shopping throughout Europe. We hope this Guide will help you find the book(stores) you are looking for. Unfortunately, the bookstores are no longer uploaded and may be out of date

The Albion Beatnik, Oxford

Where? Oxford, England, UK

Recommeded by Mariela

Mariela said: "The reason I am writing is the my other beloved bookshop, Albion Beatnik from Oxford, one of the few places where you  can find such a good selection of books, including European and international writers (all in English). Nice jazz music and a good cup of tea may help people decide what they want to buy. It opens at 11 and I never know when it closes but there are jazz concerts or poetry readings quite often in the evening.

I hope you come and see it for yourself one day. This is a real bookshop. It could serve as a synonym to bookshop in the Oxford dictionary."

Every once in a while, a recommendation like this leaves us with a smile on our faces. It is nice to see how one person can love a bookstore and this feeling is certainly familiar with many of us, who consider ourselves books(tore) fanatics.

The Albion Beatnik is an independent bookshop located in Jericho, Oxford. The bookstore/cafe offers a diverse collection of titles ranging from American pulp, film theory, jazz (which usually accompanies your audio experience in the store) to Beatnik poetry and other counter-culture stuff. It also  offers tea, coffee and cake.

The Albion Beatnik also regularly hosts many concerts, poetry readings, talks and debates. Apparently, there's even a basement where bands rehears and reading groups meet. The bookstore also has an anti-wifi policy, so don't expect you laptop to connect to anything.
