Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Though founders Marc Weinstein and Dave Prinz opened their first record store in Berkeley in 1990, it’s the 20-year-old San Francisco location that has become a national treasure. That’s largely due to its luxurious size: It’s set in a 24,000-square-foot former bowling alley. That means you’ll find thousands of records in every genre, from hip-hop to classic jazz, world music to Top 40. Each section is staffed by an expert in that particular music type, whether reggae or rock. This spot and its sister store in West Hollywood often host concerts and events. In addition to records, you’ll also find a stash of new and used DVDs, cassettes, video games and CDs.
