All Analog Vinyl Listening Mecca Opens In Central London

Vinyl warmth to heat up those rainy London days.

London’s heaving Kings Cross is about to get itself a major dose of analog relaxation and escapism. Since 2014, Hoxton’s Merchant Taverns has been housing the analog Spiritland soundsystem, an audiophile and music purist’s dream hi-fi system, featuring a beautiful ensemble of antique and customized sound equipment. This was always meant to be a temporary oasis for music lovers, but in September this year Spiritland will move into its own dedicated and permanent home in the middle of London—a huge 2,200 square feet space, located on Stable Street, next to Granary Square. Featuring high-quality programming focused around themes, genres and eras in music, it’s likely to become a treasured hub for those into the slower, more patient forms of music consumption.
