There's a book themed bar opening soon in Toronto

Toronto bookworms will soon have a new spot to hole up in with a stiff drink. That's because Famous Last Words Bar, described as a spot that serves "cocktails with a literary twist," is slated to open up in the Junction at 392 Pacific Ave.

According to Famous Last Words' Instagram feed, the space will feature a book wall, cocktails based on great works of literature and best of all, a scrabble tile bar.

Recently, the bar put out a call for a bartender/mixologist on Indeed. "Our focus is on high-quality cocktails and exceptional customer service in an unpretentious, neighbourhood setting," reads the posting.

"Passionate about cocktails? Love books? Want to be a part of building something from the ground up? This could be perfect for you!"

So far, it looks like Famous Last Words will feature drinks inspired by titles such as The English Patient, Fahrenheit 451 and The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

With the exterior sign recently installed, you can expect the bar to open soon.
