Tokyo Record Bar
Are You Listening?
Festival season is over - but there are new ways to experience sound in the city
With their custom sound system, highly curated DJ line-ups, and regular listening parties, Dalston’s Brilliant Corners may have led the way for London’s audiophile movement. But now a whole host of bars are making music their priority, changing the ways we experience sound in the city.

This month, London’s original ‘listening bar’ Spiritland (modelled on the Japanese concept and with a £500k sound system to boot) celebrates its first birthday – find Metronomy’s Anna Prior leading the party next week and experience it for yourself. Next month, Colleen Murphy’s Classic Album Sundays teams up with Boiler Room for the start of their new series Contemporary Classics. Held at the Ace Hotel’s Miranda, this isn’t your usual club night. It’s dedicated to celebrating the 10th anniversary of Radiohead’s In Rainbows with a playback session on the best equipment money can buy, followed by a Q&A with diehard Radiohead fan and producer Lone. And further afield in NYC’s Greenwich Village, Tokyo Record Bar is just a few weeks old and bringing the concept to Manhattan – think intimate underground listening sessions where music and vinyl are paired together for a unique sensory experience.

It’s time to find your own brilliant corner, plug in and chill out.
