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.

Having recently returned from a tour of the UK, Melbourne-based singer-songwriter Alanna Eileen is set to launch her debut EP. Produced by Mark Myers (The Middle East), it delivers introspective, lyric-driven songs with a gothic edge, combining pure vocals with intricate fingerpicking. Inspired by a tradition epitomised by artists like Nick Drake, Alanna's delicate brand of folk has won her many fans. She will be touring the east coast throughout February in support of this release.
