Record Shopping In Barcelona

Record Shops In Barcelona – Vinil Vintage & 10000 Records

This week in our Barcelona record store blog post, we have decided to bring you two stores – because they are related, literally related by blood… Two brothers, two stores in Barcelona: Vinil Vintage & 10000 Records.

10000 Records was opened in 2010 in the neighbourhood of Sant Antoni by Rubén Franch and 3 years later, in the neighbourhood of Gracia, his brother Dani Franch opened Vinil Vintage. Both stores have a good selection of second hand records, with a range of Pop, Rock, Jazz, Classical and even some local Spanish music. Although the hi-fi range is a little bigger at 10000 Records (due to a larger store space), both stores stock second hand hi-fi equipment including amplifiers, turntables and speakers. You can even get your current hi-fi equipment repaired at both of the stores!

It’s clear that these brothers grew up with music in their home. Dani explains that their father had a fantastic record collection and inspired them both to open their stores dedicated to vinyl and music.

I would definitely recommend the 40 minute stroll through the streets of Barcelona to visit both stores. I guarantee you will find some second hand vinyl at one store, that you won’t find at the other!
