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 Stage

Sappho Books' monthly Open Stage night is back for November at the Sappho Bar! There will be at least eight 10-minute open-performance slots available (though there is often room for more!). 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 section starts at 6:30 on the night, and the event kicks off at 7. Entry is free, and the bar will be open for drinks.
