Great record store. The staff was friendly and helpful. A decent sized inventory with a lot of jazz. Not so much metal or hard rock. I did find a VG copy of Now And Zen by Robert Plant. Reasonable prices. Definitely worth a visit.
Great selection of records and a very warm and inviting atmosphere. Big fan!
They may be a great store, but as a visitor to Philly from the UK, they really need to work on their communication. I phoned several times in advance, and always straight to voicemail. I walked from Center City to N Bailey, based on the address provided on their website, and nothing. I asked a local and they said they thought it operated out of a garage, and if they are at 1517 N Bailey then they were closed, which apparently they shouldn’t be based on their website. If they do operate out of a garage, then there is zero signage for when they are closed. I then checked the Google images and their OWN website, and they have 1517 listed, but the Google map on their site shows W Girard, as does an image of their logo on Google. So I walk down to Girard, and walk up and down both sides between 26th and 28th and nothing, other than a hint of maybe where they used to be on what I think is now a cafe (some old painted signs saying record store) So, I’m a collector and go out of my way to find great stores. I’ve spent maybe $500 in the last week at other stores. Sadly, my money and Brewerytown Beats we’re not meant to be. If you find it then you must be in the chosen few. Maybe they had an emergency and couldn’t open that weekend, but their marketing and communication didn’t help.

Really great place. I didn’t catch the name of the fellow cashing me out, but he told me some trivia about one of the records I picked out, and I found a dope Beatles bootleg on colored vinyl. Prices are really nice too, and everyone was so friendly
Best record shop I've been too. Back to the days of buying records, I visit just about every other week. Owner, knowledgeable, kind, polite, respectful, a good person to know. Heavy into all kinds of music. I ask about a 45 recorded in 1966, he had it, brand new (wow). Staff, great people, friendly and helpful. Whatever music you're looking for, he's got it or he will get it.
