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.

If you are a musician interested in performing at Sappho, please get in touch! Send an email to and include a sample or link to your music.

If you are just starting out, or want to test your material, why not come along to one of our Open Stage nights? These are currently held on the first Tuesday of every month. Just turn up on the night and put your name down for a slot. See our Upcoming Events calendar for the next opportunity.
