Halloween Party was great! Lots of ppl dressed up and general atmosphere was awesome

Review №2

Exceptionally fun atmosphere. The owner has a noticeable passion for hospitality. Lots of space to spread out, the option to sit inside, outside under the covered patio, or outside with no covering. Fantastic service.

Review №3

Multiple bars for quick drinks. Outside area is kept warm, various age groups with a mature crowd.

Review №4

Review №7

This is my favorite place to go for a drink and they have good food too

Review №8

Ever since they opened, this has always been one of my fave places to go! They have great drinks and I love the renovations they've made over the years too!

Review №9

Nice establishment really like the open seating arrangements.

Review №10

Nice bar for an older crowd not a bunch if college kids.

Review №11

We stopped into the library last night. Met the phenomenal owner and tried some awesome food!! That's how you make a burger!! I'll definitely be back to try the Rueben rolls. We played darts and enjoyed the karaoke crew! If you are in Cape I would suggest stopping in!

Review №12

Great atmosphere. Nice folks. A great place to unwind and visit

Review №13

One of the most well established, modern and classy bars downtown. Also great energy and environment with lots of activities and service is phenomenal. Kathy is the sweetest she owns the Library and she is absolutely wonderful!!! Drinks are really tasty and well priced.

Review №14

The Library is my go to bar in Cape Girardeau. It is always a blast. Even in these troubling times the atmosphere is relaxed. Plenty of seating and the out door area is amazing. I can't wait for all this stuff to get better and the temperatures to warm up to play some sand volleyball.

Review №15

Really great spot to hang whether it be to make some friends or people watch, you can't go wrong here.

Review №16

The owner Cathy has discriminated against multiple black customers that go to the Library.My encounter:So last night the owner refused to give me water for my clearly intoxicated friend until I showed her receipts that I've been buying from her. She said that water doesn't make her money. After I showed her my bank statement that had 3 transaction from The Library she said that I didn't spend enough and still refused to get me water and demanded that I tip her if she did. Several people noticed what was happening and said they didn't get asked that and was confused on why she wouldn't give me the water even after showing her I've been buying from her throughout the night. Someone even gave me my money back because they felt she was wrong and one of her employee's got me water when the owner went to go yell at a woman that went off on her for being rude to me.

Review №17

Great music, good food, wonderful covering and tables outside.

Review №18

This place was a blast. Kathy was so friendly and welcoming! She even let me sing with her husband David. Dav had a great time talking with him also. We can't wait to come back and visit!

Review №19

Great atmosphere in a college town. Bartenders are all hot. Drinks are reasonably priced. It's a social atmosphere on Saturday night. Indoor and outdoor facility with several bars.

Review №20

This place is nice but I have a major concern that when I gave my ID, they didn't look to see if it was me, they scanned it. Ill show my ID when asked but showing it doesn't mean I gave consent to join whatever unregulated private marketplace that software company is part of.

Review №21

Got to go when it is quiet lol not it's been the place to go!!

Review №22

An absolutely wonderful experience

Review №23

Besides waitimg on at the bar for a drink its a nice place to do karaoke and dance...

Review №24

Great atmosphere. Very nice place to hangout and meet friends.

Review №25

A great place to go to. The bar staff is very friendly. Not a long wait for drinks. Lots of things to do. That's Sports on the TVs. Volley pong is very fun here. They also have cornhole. They have live bands on some nights.

Review №26

Huge area. There are 3 different bars to order from, a non-smoking area, also a huge outside area that has been set up to be used even during winter with the heat lamps. There is constantly something new happening at Library

Review №27

It's fun, aesthetic, and they have great drink specials. This place is a must if you're in the Cape Girardeau area.

Review №28

Stopped in on a Tuesday night. Had a blast and Rachel took such good care of us. She is one of the best bartenders I have had in a while. The fried pickles were awesome and prices were very good. I will definitely go back very soon.

Always a nice atmosphere on the patio

Review №38

The library is always an awesome time. It is clean, friendly staff and attentive bartenders. There can be a wait when it is busy but that is typical anywhere. So much to do on the patio with sand volleyball and giant volley-pong (beer pong) that is so much fun! Highly recommend.

Review №39

Great atmosphere, the ladies in here are amazing

Review №40

Definitely not a place for 30 year old and up. Lots of college age people but cool bar.

Review №41

Wonder place to relax and enjoy

Review №42

Quick service, slow night

Review №43

Not as quiet as I expected from a library, but the drinks were top notch

Review №44

Awesome atmosphere and staff

Review №45

Excellent atmosphere for relaxing. Comfy outdoor furniture with a spacious patio. Beautifully decorated and clean. Good go or and good drink selection. Not to mention, it's always fun coming in around a holiday because they really go all out with the decor! I also like the life size beer pong and volley ball option outdoors. They also have a non smoking section, which helps for those bar goers who don't like the cigarette smoke.

Review №46

The food was good the drinks were great the atmosphere was awesome!! I really enjoyed it!!

Review №47

The first thing I noticed is there was no card catalog. The Dewey decimal system had been suppressed. The nonfiction section lacked any sort of consistency, and the fiction disappointed as well. Also, why would you serve alcoholic beverages at a library? Isn't re-shelving book returns of higher priority? Serve books... not beers...

Review №48

Great outdoor area

Review №49

First Friday always a good time at the Library. Ivas sounded amazing!

Review №50

Great people, great times and just all around fun!!

Review №51

Great place to meet your friends early for good music.

Review №56

Best bar in Cape, can't beat the patio!

Review №57

5 stars kathy and river r tha boom

Review №58

Usually a fun, mixed crowd. Offers two bar rooms and an outdoor area that is heated in winter.

Review №59

One of the best places to eat and hang out the add-on and all the other features there's no place like it or compared to it Southeast Missouri

Review №60

The library is an OK bar. It would be much better if it was non-smoking though. They have some fun games to play like sand volleyball, corn hole, and giant beer pong. But the patio where all this is located is kind of rough.

Review №61

Great place. Awesome bartender's

Review №62

Ok place def could use some upgrades

Review №63

Great place with an amazing staff. The owner really goes out of her way to get to know her guests.

Review №64

Way too crowded. They need more space for how popular they've gotten.

Review №65

Super friendly staff

Review №66

Loud music and lots of people here, which is great if you're in to that kind of stuff. It is nice that you can go outside and hang out. Bartenders make decent mixed drinks, though no cocktails can be found. On busy nights it can be a real pain to get a drink even when you have money in your hand trying to get a bartenders attention.

Review №67

Interesting mix of people. Depends on the time of the night.

Review №68

Great crowd most nights!

Review №69

Really fun bar. Great atmosphere.

Love this bar. Kathy is great! Come for a fun atmosphere and stay for the music and well priced drinks. I wish I could rate this at 6 stars because it deserves it.

Review №72

This place is great!! They have sand volleyball!! Beer pong with cups you could fit in!! The deck is wonderful! The dancing area is always packed! It's just overall a great time! The drinks aren't super pricey either!

Friendly place with great service and wonderful bands!

Review №80

Nicest place in Cape Girardeau Missouri. Now they have purchased the outdoor bar next to them. They call it the Library's playground. Makes a huge outdoor experience . Food is outstanding at the playground. Very quick service and very courteous

Review №81

Love it! Very fun atmosphere, good food, and great service! I will definitely be back with friends to play sand volleyball!The complimentary bug spray was nice too!

Review №82

As long as it's not packed it's a great place to go. But when it's full there are bottle necks and can be hard to get anywhere. But usually a great atmosphere

Good Times & Good People!

It was fun

Review №87

Awesome place!!!

Review №88

Usual crowd here is not my cup of tea and it's usually pretty crowded. Takes quite some time to get a drink. But nonetheless this place is nice and the outdoor seating is great. Even in winter they fire up the patio heaters to use the space.
