Though the widespread use of tapes, CDs and (briefly) MiniDiscs is now firmly in the past, the humble vinyl has undoubtedly stood the test of time.
Case in point: the imminent opening of vinyl-themed bar, Old Street Records.
Set to launch this very Thursday - and sister bar of both Venn Street Records and Northcote Records - this musical hangout will front punchy cocktails, delicious pizzas, record store-inspired decor, and a palpable party vibe, six nights a week.
The bar is split over two floors, both of which offer a bustling and eclectic music roster, including new artists, established acts, EP launches and everything in-between. Stick upstairs for authentic Italian pizzas and deals on their bespoke cocktails, or venture down into their secretive hideaway beneath the streets of Shoreditch, promising anything from intimate jazz nights to rowdy DJ-led parties, spanning a massive range of musical genres.
But the best part? Pre-book with us for any date between 4th - 31st July, and they'll match your first round, with an identical one, completely on the house.
Go get it.
Old Street Records opens on Thursday 30th June. The free round only applies to your first round of drinks, up to £100, and only to those who pre-book with DesignMyNight for any dates between 4th - 31st July. Check back on their listings for up-to-date info on upcoming events.
