The 5 best record shops
The hippest vinyl shop in Copenhagen’s hippest neighbourhood is BEAT. Known for its friendly vibe, reasonably priced vinyl (more than 10K titles in stock), and curated selection of music-related books, BEAT also has a cafe serving light food, beer, cocktails, and coffee.
2) Crate - Beer and Vinyl
Crate is home to a small but thoughtful selection of hand-picked vinyl sold alongside a carefully chosen menu of micro brewed beers. Located on one of the city’s most atmospheric streets, Crate combines the pleasures of musical discovery with all the pleasures that come with enjoying locally crafted beer.
3) Sort Kaffe and Vinyl
The name of this cosy shop says it all. Serving up a diverse selection of quality records, from new releases to reissues to classic discs, as well as serving very good coffee, this hip Vesterbro shop is located just a block off of Istedgade, but is well worth a visit, especially when the sun is out and the terrace is open.
4) Route 66
Route 66 offers up primarily new records from mainstream artists as well as indie bands. The shop’s secondhand records are in the basement. One thing that sets Route 66 apart is its offering of vintage and contemporary Danish language records.
5) Sound Station
First opened back in 1991, Frederiksberg’s Sound Station prides itself on the quality and diversity of its vinyl stock. Home to a wide range of musical genres, Sound Station specialises in a wall-to-wall collection of everything from rockabilly to punk and from jazz to metal. With new stock arriving everyday, this place is a vinyl hunter’s dream.
