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.

Open Mind Mic

Open Mind Mic is a soapbox-style symposium where you can speak your mind. 

It’s a platform to share ideas – like a TED Talk, except with a cocktail menu. 

Each speaker gets a maximum of 10 minutes, followed by a facilitated Q&A/discussion session. 

There is no theme and there are no censors – the only criteria is that your idea is discussion-provoking. You can be as controversial as you like – you just need to be ready to back up your stance during the Q&A. 

The discourse is free, as is the entry!

Doors open: 7pm
First speaker: 7:30pm
