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.

Poetry Night

Poetry nights are held on the second Tuesday of every month (except January) and have become renowned for their welcoming atmosphere and line-up of well known poets

The night usually features three or four poets reading their own work, followed by open mic readings.

There are a limited amount of spots available in the open mic section, so get in early by arriving by 6:45 pm to sign up in person. One poem each, up to 2 minutes.
