Established in 2011, The Library Pub is an independent pub and music venue which consists of an upstairs bar, a downstairs bar, and a garden at the rear. The garden also features home cooked food on some nights, Tuesday being a pizza night, and Thursday is Mexican. The music nights are held in the basement bar, and it is regularly used by Smash Disco to put on free gigs featuring local bands, and was also a featured venue in Oxjam 2015.
Location and Transport
182 Cowley Road
It is located on the Cowley Road, approximately half way between the O2 and Tesco, on the O2 side of Cowley Road. Gigs are held in the lower bar which is accessed by going through the door at the back of the upper bar and down the staircase.
This is a tiny venue with a lot of stairs, which is cosy, some would say intimate, and anything but accessible. There is a steep staircase up to the entrance and a further staircase down to the lower bar.
