Why we love it

For a place offering something so different, Hydra Books isn't touted about enough. Completely off-beat in every sense, this home of radical thought is at once an independent book shop, a humble coffee shop, and a buzzing event space. Run by a co-operative of individuals passionate about topical affairs, it is a welcome respite from big brands and big names in bookselling culture. The Facebook page is well-worth following for updates on a wide range of upcoming events and discussions, from book signings to documentary screenings.
