What’s better than digging through stacks of records in search of the perfect sonic gem? Looking through stacks with your BFF (best furry fren). After all, two of life’s greatest delights are doggos and music. Does your aggro dog like to thrash to heavy metal? Smooth sailor like to bop to jazz? Vinyl-lovin’ Vizsla like to groove to classic rock? Hipster hound like to jam to art rock? We rounded up some dog-friendly Denver record stores for pooches and peeps with all musical tastes.
Twist and Shout
Located in the heart of Congress Park right off Colfax, Twist and Shout is a mutts-see Denver destination for vinyl hounds and movie lovers. The store features a drool-worthy 11,000 square feet of LPs, CDs, DVDs, Blu-rays, tchotchkes, and music memorabilia. Audiophiles will ruv the impressive selection of new and used records, pups will ruv being welcomed with treatos at the customer service counter. We recommend checking their events calendar for live performances. Bonus—they also offer curbside pickup and mail-order services.
Angelo’s CDs & Vinyl
Get lost with your pupper in the stacks at Angelo’s CDs & Vinyl. Boasting two locations in South Denver and Aurora, this shop has served up nostalgia in the Denver metro since 1990. In addition to records, Angelo’s offers t-shirts, alternative fashion, posters, and smoking accessories. They also have a vinyl punch card for devotees. Either buy 14 new records and get 1 free, or buy 4 used records and get 1 free. Heckin’ deal. Friendly staff will welcome floofs with open arms and stellar music reccs. Mail-order services are also available via their website.
