No longer does a bibliophile have to ponder in agony: Do I stay home and read and drink beer alone, or do I venture out and read among the masses at a bar? Well, fellow imbibing bookworms, your search is over. Rain Dogs in Riverside has it all. Good drinks, good eats (menu available soon) and its own precious little library.

With a plethora of books and beers from which to choose, your night is sure to be fulfilling. Opened in July by local entrepreneurs in-the-know Christina Wagner, Ian Ranne and Will Greene, the bar in Historic Five Points draws a diverse crowd — much like the surrounding neighborhood denizens.

The space also serves as a venue for travelling musicians and artists; a recent show featured The Slaughter Daughters from Oregon, and St. Augustine artist Tony Rodrigues has several pieces on display. Displaying local art is an important part of Rain Dogs' appeal, and owners Wagner and Ranne are themselves performing musicians.

Some ongoing monthly events include DJ D.O.T.S. Dance Party every first Friday (soul, funk, rock n roll on all vinyl), Dialectable Beats $BIG BUCK$ Crew every first Saturday (hip hop, funk, soul), and Tambor (five-piece Latin jazz fusion) on the last Saturday of the month.
