Photo of the day: Vinylhouse Cafe, Guangzhou


In celebration of International Record Store Day, which falls on April 21 this year, our photo theme this week is Record Shopping in China. Though vinyl culture never quite caught on China in quite the same way as it did in other parts of the world, it’s on the rise. This week we’ll put the spotlight on some of the best shops in China to pick up new tunes.

Founded by husband and wife Mong Huang and Paula Peng in 2015, Vinylhouse Cafe is both a coffee shop and a record store which combines great music and comfortable surroundings to create a warm and welcoming environment for vinyl fans. The store is as much about coffee as it is about vinyl, and acts as a melting pot for local creatives with diverging interests. 

Vinylhouse regularly organizes vinyl markets for collectors, and will host another market featuring 7” records from the “Golden Age of Soul and Funk” as part of Record Store Day this week.
