An alternative independent bookshop since 1976, Smith's has recently transitioned into an alternative performing arts cafe, bar and gallery.

A home for Canberra's artists, musicians, philosophers, dreamers, outsiders, activists... Smith's is the epitome of a bohemian cafe, a feast for the senses, hosting a wide range of events and exhibits (music, poetry, comedy, theatre, performance art, visual art, literary, burlesque), often several each day.
