The Oliver Hotel opened the Peter Kern’s Library inside of the hotel behind the front desk. The library is in an oblong room with a large portrait of Peter Kern, builder of this former bakery/confectionery on one end, and a gas fireplace on the other. The drink menus hidden in old World Book Encyclopedias, offer more than a dozen specialty drinks all named for characters in fiction.
