1984 cannot be found if you’re not looking intentionally. Tucked behind an unmarked metal door with no signage nearby to signal its location, this place is any book-lover’s haven. In fact, we’re not even sure we should be calling it a bookstore, as none of the books are for sale – they’re solely for browsing, so bring your own books and curl up with a warm cuppa from the built-in café, or choose one of their many titles to browse through.
