Classic Shop

A must-visit for classical music and for jazzheads. While the collection remains largely unorganised, true LP enthusiasts will eagerly dig through the stacks of vinyl until they find one of the many hidden gems tucked away in the store.

An audiophile's oasis, Kubrick offers customers a relaxed litsening space and cafe for those with an appreciation of an eclectic range of records. You can find a large selection of releases by Taiwanese and Chiense bands, so grab a coffee, drop by and drop a needle.

The Music Room at Potato Head

Disclaimer: we don't advise running off with records from here. More of an 'experience' than an actual store, this room is a trifecta of performances by touring DJs, disco nights and listening sessions, and the room is acoustically treated and decked out with four beautiful high-end speakers.

Vinyl Hero

Tucked away in a Sham Shui Po residential building is the whopping treasure trove that is Ah Paul's record collection. In a small, cozy space, Paul has stacked to the roof boxes upon boxes of records from vinyl's heyday in the 70s and 80s, spanning all genres for the discerning ear. Check out our interview with Ah Paul
