Tucked into the streets of Shadipur is a small haven for book lovers. Although located in such an unusual spot, the May Day Bookstore is a cosy and spacious bookstore that has an enviable collection of books and memorabilia.

What Makes It Awesome

Started by a group of theatre enthusiasts, who wanted a place of their own to hold meetings, practices, and discussions, May Day Bookstore is ideal for book enthusiasts who just want to spend a few hours in the company of just their books. The entire store has an understated old-world charm about it. A few tables and chairs, and a few couches means that there are minimum distractions, making it the perfect paradise not just for readers, but for writers, thinkers, and all lovers of art. So, whether you consider yourself the literary type or not, visit this place just to soak in the charm of a place that is an oasis of peace and calm in the middle of a chaotic city.

The variety of books available here is amazing. Even better, most of them are second-hand, so they’re easy on the pocket as well. Because May Day is run by theatre enthusiasts, you can also expect lots of eclectic workshops, vibrant performances, book launches, group readings and so much more.

What Could Be Better

It's located in a relatively unknown place. But other than that, I can't find anything wrong with this place. 


The closest metro station is Shadipur; from there just switch on Google Maps and it should easily guide you to the bookstore.
