Gay music shops in London

Browsing through rows and rows of music stores in London can be cheerfully exciting but also painfully exhausting. Some of the music stores in London that offer every possible compilation you want in the best deals ever are listed here:

Rough Trade

Ask anyone in Covent Garden, where Rough Trade is and you are lead to an independent shop tucked away in Neals Yard. It is one of the best independent music stores in London and if there is something you don’t find at HMV, you are going to be lucky here. Rough Trade has offset a cult status with different kind of music lovers from gays to hippies and from punk rockers to soul music lovers frequenting them.

Revival Records

Rare singles album, US indie, labels like Matador, guitar based rock – you will find the rarest of compilations here. This shop in SoHo is something that most gay Londoners cannot resist. Their separate shop for soul and dance is a gay men’s dream come true. If in London, looking for music shops, you just cannot miss this shop!

Mister CD

This place is jam packed on weekends and most of their chart albums cost you not more than a tenner. Don’t forget to check their basement, where you can get CDs for as low as a £1. Tourists, who are mostly men, frequent this place. Perhaps, this is the reason that you can catch some footie here, an unusual thing for a music store!
