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.

Our Open Stage night is held on the first Tuesday of every month (except January) at the Sappho Bar. There will be eight 10-minute open-performance slots available (though we often have room for more!). We encourage all sorts of performers to take part in our Open Stage nights, from music to comedy, performance poetry to acting scenes. If you are just starting out or want to test new material, this is an ideal platform as it is supportive and fun. More experienced artists and more polished material is also welcome and encouraged. Sign-up for the open section starts at 6:30 on the night, just ask for the host, and the event kicks off at 7. Entry is free, and the bar will be selling drinks.
