  • Great location with friendly staff. I was greeted and offered coffee upon simply walking in the door. The basement has a very unique vibe (see pictures) and was where I spent a good chunk of my time here as I sampled some records and enjoyed the atmosphere. If you are wanting to see classic Icelandic albums or are looking for popular international items this is the place to do it.
  • Amazing place with lots of records / vinyl records (every price) and plenty of gift ideas (old vinyls, icelandic music, maps, distinctive postcards, toys for kids...). You can listen to the records in a cosy place. Thank you, love the postcard!!
