    Me girlys folks got a place near barna and i go as much as poss....bloody great city. do you mean record shops or general stuff?

    just get yourself onto la ramblas and it takes you to almost everything worth seeing, but try and visit the fairy bar, its near the wax museum down near the shore and its the trippyest wee bar ever....check it.

    good few decent record shops in the same area as:

    Revolver Records
    This is one of the first record shops on the Ramblas side of Carrer de Tallers. The ground floor is mainly CDs, so head to the back of the store and climb the spiral staircase past the huge KISS mural to the vinyl floor. Lots of US, UK and Spanish releases of new and used vinyl are all to be had for reasonable prices. There's also a couple of decks, so you can try before you buy.

    "Specialists in out of stock vinyl", so says the advert. Pretty good shop with a wide selection of used vinyl. Fairly well organised but a bit grungy. There are about 3 different shops with different strengths.
    Back to top of page Discos Impacto
    Located midway down "Tallers Street" this little shop buys and sells vinyl to a mainly rock and indie style crowd. There's plenty to choose from classic rock wise and the guitar end of things is the shops speciality. Found 2 early Stone Roses bootleg LPs here surprisingly. KISS fans will love the place but it's a bit pricey considering all the competition nearby!
    Expensive Rock and Roll

    61 Carrer de Tallers

    Sadly, news just in from one of our readers, this shop is no more! A great shame indeed.
    This was just a great record shop - pure and simple. Loads of choice, lots of quality, it's well laid out, and damn perfect! The staff were friendly and knew their stuff, (they woulld pull you to the back of the shop and dig out records that they thought you'd like!) Their plastic bags were nice and funky too.
    If we had a medal to give, this place would have got it!

    24 Riera Baixa

    Wah Wah
    Another superb shop. The service is not up to the standard of Riff Raff and their cataloguing system is so complicated it takes a good 5 minutes to buy anything, but it is worth the wait. They have every genre you could possibly want and loads of it. Fans of experimental 60s electronic music are in for a rare treat. The Funk and Soul selection is so large they have to stack the new records on top of the racks. This is the only record shop which has cat-on-leash security.



    Two other shops worth a visit are Etnomusic and S.F. Vinyle on Carrer del Bonsuccés.


    You'll have a blast mate....top city. I can give you some contacts for wats shakin in da clubs as well.
