Sappho Books, Cafe & Bar

We are one of Sydney's favourite general second-hand Bookstores. Walk through to our beautiful courtyard Cafe that transforms into a tapas Bar at night. We are also now home to Da Capo Music Bookshop, the only dedicated second-hand sheet music store in Australia. We buy and sell used books, sheet music and records, host live music and events and are available for venue hire.

For individual opening hours, see: BOOKSHOP HOURS ~ CAFE HOURS ~ BAR HOURS

Da Capo is located on the top floor of Sappho bookstore. It functions as a browsing and self-service second-hand music shop. The point of sale for Da Capo stock is downstairs at the Sappho Bookstore counter.

We are happy to do searches for you but as Da Capo is not permanently staffed, please be aware that emails may take a few days to be answered.
