Philosophers & Fools is a cozy neighborhood bookstore bar in Charleston, SC. Created by two people who love to read and sip on a glass of wine or a craft beer while they read, they crazily (or brilliantly?) said to one another, "Why don't we create a space where others can enjoy this too?"  and so, here we are. We've made our dream a reality.

Everything we carry, from the books to the wine & beer, from the snacks to the decor has been thoughtfully selected by our team. Just ask - there's a story for just about everything in the shop!

We welcome you to come in and discover a new book or find an old one not yet on your shelf, sit down for a conversation with friends, and enjoy something to drink or snack on. 

We look forward to talking about books with you!
