Heights Vinyl

Store
Heights Vinyl also offers refurbished turntables and speakers, in addition to its wide selection of vinyl treasures. Located off White Oak Drive, it’s easy to spend the whole day searching the bins. Stop by on the weekend; if you’re lucky you’ll catch some local acts performing on the stage in the corner of the store and find some of the hard-to-find albums you’ve been searching for.

Deep End Records

Music Venue, Store
You may be familiar with this location from the Culture Trip’s ‘places to catch live music in Houston‘ article. The great thing about Deep End Records is that it is also the venue for Walter’s Downtown. Deep End is on to something with its ingenious idea to open a record store inside of a music venue. Flip through an impressive selection of vinyl records between set changes while you catch a show. The store is open Thursday through Sunday from 12pm into the late night, and it also has the best prices in the city.

Black Dog Records

Store
Speaking of dogs… for more than 17 years, Black Dog Records has been serving Houston with its fine vinyl and CD collections. What’s not to love about the cute logo depicting a bone-stylus on a turntable? Another great thing about Black Dog Records is that it buys your old vinyl. If your collection is too big to bring to the store, a representative of the shop will come to you. Talk about quality service.
