Amoeba Music, Los Angeles

4.8
Browse aisle after aisle of some of the biggest music legends at Amoeba Music, a retro-looking store offering new CDs, used CDs, DVDs, Bluerays, cassettes, and LP vinyls. The store is part of a chain, and with 250,000 titles, it remains one of the largest independent music shops in the world. Its retro appeal made it a Hollywood landmark almost instantly, its reputation made by a broad collection of music under one roof, showcased over its shopping floors and jazz room. The stock is ever changing as loyal customers come in to trade old for new, and vice versa.

  • If you are a music lover, you cannot miss this place. It's huge and is the paradise of vinyl lovers. After I discovered it, I spent a long time inside. There was a board with music flyers with band stickers and advertising, I took home some of the flyers and stickers and I put them on some home items, so anytime I saw them I remember my visit to this incredible store!
  • Hollywood Amoeba is the king, simple as that. No place has come close for me (not even the older Amoeba stores) and it's got such a cool, fun feel, even with how staggering it is. Just about anything you could want in regards to movies and music is probably there, unless it's out of print (in which case you still have a pretty good shot). Their accessories are dope as well. And they have their own parking garage! In L.A. that merits a star unto itself. If you haven't been, you must.
  • What an awesome place!! Had a blast wandering around and feeling nostalgic browsing through movies and music I loved when I was a kid. Was a big fan of all the weird knick knacks for sale too (like a sealed Star Wards decorated disposable camera from 1998). Ended up just buying a really cheap headphone splitter

  • Full disclosure: I'm not a big record store person, but I went with three of my friends who were DEEPLY into the experience and had a blast. The selection is amazing, and not just for records; there are also lots of fun novelties to look through, including shirts from multiple musical eras (my friend got a Humpty Dance shirt!) that make this a worthwhile place to check out if you love music. If you're a big vinyl fan, the store also has a wide selection of stuff you'd never even think they'd carry, so it's well worth the visit. The staff is also really friendly and the prices are quite reasonable.
