Amoeba Music, Los Angeles

4.8
Browse aisle after aisle of some of the biggest music legends at Amoeba Music, a retro-looking store offering new CDs, used CDs, DVDs, Bluerays, cassettes, and LP vinyls. The store is part of a chain, and with 250,000 titles, it remains one of the largest independent music shops in the world. Its retro appeal made it a Hollywood landmark almost instantly, its reputation made by a broad collection of music under one roof, showcased over its shopping floors and jazz room. The stock is ever changing as loyal customers come in to trade old for new, and vice versa.

  • One of the only music stores still around. Fortunately, it would have been one of the best in any Era. Absolutely huge. Beautiful, inspiring space. Amazing selection in every genre. Some books, posters, memorabilia as well. Great people watching too. I also enjoy the location. Catch a movie next door.
  • This is one of the few records stores that truly truly has it all. I come here and I feel like I could spend days looking and listening to different music or reading books or finding amazing obscurities. Do this fantastic Haven a favor and support it. I don't know of many record stores anymore and before the age of digital destroys The Nostalgia of having a physical copy of something, go in and buy something. I promise you, you won't regret anything you purchase there and honestly there's no other place like it that I've ever seen. This is a place that I will always love and always remember, keep Amoeba Music alive.
  • Holy Cow!!!This place is HUGE! Could spend hours wandering around and checking out all of the cool stuff. Great atmosphere and music in every form and genre imaginable. The back room is a record collectors dream. Upstairs is just about every movie you can think of plus T.V. shows and other DVD 's too. And a great selection of Rock and other music T shirts all over the store with cool music related items.
  • Simply an unbelievable place. If it exists, it is music related and it’s worth owning, Amoeba will have it, can get it, or it ain’t worth having. So I recently saw Jim James (from My Morning Jacket) do a live show here. He loves Amoeba and explained the store this way: Amoeba “is like a place at the end of the end of the galaxy where we all end up after we die and where we all listen to records.” Beam me up, Scotty. That’s just about a perfect description of this very Mary Poppins-like place that’s “practically perfect in every way.” Are the prices a tad high? Yes. But, given the location, selection and knowledgeable staff, I’d say that’s a fair trade off.
  • Best for tunes. A true gem. Make a day of it and spend some time here. Music is your past. Feel it unfold as you go through the CD racks. One of the last best retail places.
