Lobby Books – Cape Town’s newest independent book shop – offers a great selection of engaging fiction and non-fiction on a wide range of topics, while specializing in titles from and about Africa.
We stock the complete catalogue of Idasa publications alongside books on politics, current affairs, economics, history, governance, art and culture as well as select magazines and documentary DVDs. We work in partnership with the fabulous Book Lounge. In collaboration with Clarke’s Book Shop in Long Street we also offer an enticing selection of second-hand and out of print books on African and South African history and rare titles from neighbouring countries – Namibia, Lesotho, Swaziland, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Zambia, Malawi and Mozambique.
Lobby Books is located in the magnificent ground floor of the historic Sir Herbert Baker building at 6 Spin Street in the centre of Cape Town. It’s the perfect setting for browsing for an exciting read or paging through a new book over a cup of coffee or a delicious lunch at 6 Spin Street Restaurant with whom we share this beautiful space.
