Vinyl Friendly Dallas Businesses

Driven by a wave of nostalgia and a unique sound quality, vinyl record sales are at their highest level since the early years of their plastic counterpart. Once you start your own collection you understand the need to surround yourself with those who support and encourage your new habit to spend any excess cash you have on building the perfect vinyl library.  That's why we have compiled a list of our favorite local Dallas businesses, restaurants, and bars that support our love of vinyl.  So if you consider yourself a vinyl junkie, frequent your local record shop, or think of yourself as just an analog guy/girl in a digital world than this list is for you.
