"Get lost between the book shelves" Denver Off The Beaten Path Tip by KaiM

Denver Off The Beaten Path: 47 reviews and 52 photos

'Tattered Cover' is the name of a large, three-floors bookstore in Lower Downtown. It has the atmosphere of an old library with couches, tables, and old book shelves. You can read in the books while drinking a coffee. The best book store I've been to, so far. It's located in an old warehouse. The choice of books is great. From fiction to science, travel to romance and horror to education. The store was in the news in April 2002 because the management denied the police access to a costumers files. The costumer was an alleged criminal and the cops wanted to check his reading habits. But 'Tattered Cover' won in court and the police wasn't able to check the files.
