Brooklyn – The new venue and community centre is a space for musicians and audiophiles to experiment with sound.
During the day, Public Records is a vegan café and bar that showcases rare records. In the evening, it becomes a performance space with a state-of-the-art sound system for live acts and vinyl DJs. The venue is not just designed for nightlife but acts as a community space for artists and audiophiles to experiment with their sound.
Public Records is genre agnostic, with a line-up that includes minimalist techno and a weekly jazz series. ‘It’s really sort of a home audiophile approach in a commercial setting,’ co-founder Shane Davis tells Gothamist. ‘We really want to push people to think of this as a canvas and a platform for experimentation.’
With the global rise in vinyl sales and consumers taking a more considered approach to sound quality, new Listening Clubs are opening that take music appreciation to the next level.
