Garage Records

Get ready to get your groove on at Garage Records in Bangkok. This record store started off small, with nothing but an online shop to show for itself, but today, Garage Records is one of the most popular record stores in Bangkok, and its plethora of vinyl to choose from probably has something to do with it. Prices vary almost as much as the selection.

1979 Vinyl and Unknown Pleasures

In June 2014, three college friends opened 1979 Vinyl and Unknown Pleasures. Before this happened, their passion for music was solely shared among one another, exchanging CDs, song recommendations, and becoming music connoisseurs of sorts, before deciding that they would make a business doing what they love: listening to music. From 1990s alternative jams to British rock, these friends have certainly searched the music world in the hope of finding the best and most unique tracks, which can now be found at their record store in the form of vinyl tracks, albums, and more. This cool record shop is also located in one of the trendiest neighborhoods in town: Thonglor.

Hidden Tracks Records

Hidden Tracks Records opened in March 2013, and it has been hand-selecting unique and popular music to put in their shop ever since. The authenticity of a vinyl is what this record store loves about what they do, and they savor the surface noises a vinyl makes. Hidden Tracks Records is located just a 10-minute walk from Thonglor, one of the coolest BTS Skytrain stations in town. Stop in to check out this great music selection.

Hidden Tracks Records, 8/209 Supalai Ville, Soi Sridan 3, Srinakarin Road, Muang Samudh Prakarn, Samut Prakan, Bangkok, Thailand, +66 085 970 0076
