Where the Hecka is La Biblioteca?

After hearing all the buzz about it, you might be wondering…donde esta La Biblioteca? Located on the corner of 40th street and 3rd Avenue, La Biblioteca (Spanish for “the library”) has to be one of the trendiest lounges to hit Murray Hill in…forever! You have to know about this place though – it’s easy to miss, and you won’t find it from the street. La Biblioteca is actually an underground tequila bar right below Zengo (a Latin American/Asian Fusion restaurant that opened last year). The lounge is a great spot for after-work drinks (a fab alternative to other options in the Grand Central area), a date, or just hanging out with friends. It has dim lighting and a cool decor – instead of  library books, you’ll find lockers filled with tequila bottles lining the walls.

We Magpies had the signature margaritas (delicioso) and also tried a tasting flight of three different tequilas (thanks to Entourage, we’ve become very familiar with tequila)! However, since we didn’t get to taste Turtle’s Avion, we’d have to say we liked Don Julio the best. And if you’re hungry, the little snacks are the perfect way to satisfy your craving. We ordered the guacamole with chips and the tuna tacos, which were perfect – since we were craving something fun to share that wasn’t too filling. So Magpies,  the next time you’re looking for a place to check out, that’s also the new hot spot – head to La Biblioteca. Vamos!!
