Left Bank Books

Left Bank Books is an unforgettable bookstore devoted to passionate readers of all ages. Located in the historic Opera House building in historic downtown Belfast, it houses over 6,000 volumes of new books, as well as maps, stationery, globes, and toys. Open year round. Well-mannered dogs are always welcome.

From the moment you walk through our front door, you know that you are in a special place: A place where you will be greeted warmly; a place with a passion for all things literary; a place where well-mannered dogs are always welcome.

We invite you to stop by for a few minutes or to spend the afternoon. Explore our shelves stacked with carefully selected books. Settle into one of our worn velvet chairs with a cup of hot tea and your book selections, or browse through our unique collection of vintage cards, imported gift wraps, and beautiful globes.

Our hope is to put just the right book in your hands (and if your dog comes along, a treat for him, too!).
