In the mol­ecule of the title compound, C19H17NO3S, the dihedral angle formed by the quinoline ring system and the thio­phene ring is 83.15 (8)°. In the crystal, C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds link the mol­ecules into a C(8) chain running along the b axis. The packing of the mol­ecules is further influenced by C—H⋯π inter­actions.
