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. The night usually has one featured artist every month, plus six 15-minute open-performance slots available. We encourage all sorts of performers to take part in our Open Stage nights, from music to comedy, performance poetry to acting scenes. Sign-up for the open slots starts at 6:30 on the night, and the event kicks off at 7. Entry is free, and the bar will be selling drinks.
