Ariel Booksellers

Thursday
10:00am - 6:00pm
98 Oxford Street Darlinghurst 2010

Ariel Booksellers is the kind of place where creatives go to procrastinate and find inspiration, according to store manager Julia Blanks. 

And it’s no wonder – the colourful offering here strikes a tasteful balance between accessible and quirky; perfect for anyone with a creative bent. You can always expect the latest in literary fiction, design mags and cookbooks. Like any good independent bookshop, there’s also a raft of literary-themed ephemera, including stationery and handmade greeting cards.  

Ariel has called Oxford street home for more than 30 years, but it’s lived at the current digs since 2017. Aside from a six-month break between shops, it’s remained a faithful go-to for the Darlinghurst community.
