LP Club and Vinyl4u
The title of the best record-hunting spot in Hanoi is jointly held by two businesses that share a small, red room on a quiet sidestreet, a few blocks south of Hanoi’s Old Quarter. Vinyl4u’s owner, Dang Ai Dan, used to sell parts of his personal collection piecemeal over the internet and out of his house. His endeavours to grow the business have seen him and his collection take up residence alongside the LP Club’s owners. These days, if you’re after exciting European and Japanese pressings of jazz, blues and classic rock, all in near perfect condition, there’s no better place in Hanoi.
