Organiser Berkelouw Books, Paddington

Organiser of Author Talk: Kerry Gardner on Australia at the Venice Biennale

Located in the heart of Oxford Street, the Berkelouw Paddington store opened in March, 1994 and has since become something of an institution amongst Sydney’s literary community. Paddington’s three storeys house an extensive range of new, rare and secondhand books.

In keeping with Oxford Street’s famous round-the-clock lifestyle, the store is open until very late most nights of the week, attracting an interesting and eclectic variety of customers. Upstairs is the popular and vibrant cafe/wine bar, which is a great place to enjoy the ambience whilst enjoying some delicious food, wine, coffee and cake.
