Our Story

We have closed our physical space but will continue to operate as an online store till we find a new home.

The Moon was a bookstore, cafe, and event space based in historical Chinatown, Singapore.

The Moon shines a light on the stories of so many wonderfully talented authors, creators and makers who may have slipped under the radar of the mainstream.

Our selection highlights writers and stories who have been historically excluded from the centre of publishing and we pay special attention to books by writers of marginalised genders, writers of colour, queer writers, and writers who write in translation.

Come explore our diverse selection of titles across various genres from both the juggernauts of publishing and small indie presses.

We also stock a variety of merchandise from creators based out of Singapore and the Southeast Asian region. You can always discover something new on The Moon.

Our café’s menu is designed to accommodate various dietary restrictions and choices.

Our event space on the third floor are open to private bookings as well as free community events.
