Pull up to a warehouse parking lot and follow the painted wooden signs to 180g Café et Disquaire. The quintessential underground spot, a hybrid vinyl shop and cafe, in discreet Mile-Ex.
From out front, the bass reverberates. Upon walking into what feels like a secret garage party you’ll meet high ceilings, enough seating for a laptop date and despite the cold cement flooring, funky beats sure to keep you warm.
Step up and order your brew of locally roasted St. Henri beans, get your card stamped, pick up a 180g sticker and shop, coffee in hand, for soul, vintage hip-hop and electro vinyls, both new and used.
A small snack menu includes grilled cheese and some sweets. Local art adorns the walls, recycled wood abounds and some plant life lends to a Brooklyn reminiscent scene.
Catch their monthly “Scratch Sessions” to witness an improvised vinyl jam. Amateurs are encouraged to try their hand at spinning too!
Note: $5 minimum on debit card.
