6 Record Shops Worth A Hop

Who said vinyl records weren't a thing anymore?


Vinyl fanatics are spoiled by Cleveland’s diverse record emporiums. Whether you're treasure-hunting for underground sounds or old-school standbys, we've got a record shop for that.

Gotta Groove Records

Head northeast of Downtown for Gotta Groove Records (one of the nation’s most well-respected platter-pressing plants--yes, you can schedule a tour, too).

Hausfrau Record Shop

Gordon Square’s Hausfrau Record Shop stocks new and old LPs spanning all genres.

Blue Arrow Records

In the funky Waterloo Arts District, visit used-vinyl haven Blue Arrow to revisit decades of music history. The floor of this music house--embellished in shellacked record covers--is worth the visit alone.

Bent Crayon

One of Cleveland's foremost record stores, Bent Crayon is known for containing some serious treasures when it comes to underground music.

Touting it's claim-to-fame as the oldest independent record store in the U.S., this gem along Coventry Avenue is the perfect spot for crate digging.
