Vinyl & Plastic

Music in Itaewon & Yongsan-gu

Vinyl is alive and kicking at this warehouse-sized music store that invites you to listen to the latest releases on a dozen or so turntables before buying. Opened by Hyundai Card, a Korean credit-card company, it also sells headphones and Bluetooth speakers. An upstairs cafe has digital jukeboxes on the tables and outdoor balcony seating.

There's also an art gallery, Storage, in the basement. It's a shame that entry to the impressively designed Music Library next door is limited to Hyundai Card–holders only.
