This Maboneng branch of the popular downtown independent book store Bridge Books sells new and second-hand books with a focus on works by South African and African writers. The shop also runs various events including book launches, writers talks and writing workshops helping new writers develop their skills and showing them how to get published. After browsing the books explore the beautiful Victorian-era building in which the shop shares a space. Once a hotel, the building now hosts occasional art exhibitions and in addition to Bridge Books The Cosmopolitan is also home to a great coffee shop and a beautiful garden in the rear courtyard.
