The Arnhems Boeken Café (ABC) Libertas is the first bookbar in Arnhem! It opened in the city centre in January 2020. The bar serves great coffee and specialty beers, and harbours little reading corners and thousands of peculiar secondhand books.
Collectief Soepel built the high bookshelves and the cosy bar. The top of the bar is made and colourized by GoGo Plastics., who produce panels out of 100% recycled plastic from various wastestreams.
The plastic is hand pressed and recycled into sustainable and waterproof panels.
