Starting life in St Kilda in 1955 before relocating to Brunswick in 2012, Record Paradise more or less does what it says on the tin. The Sydney Road store is a veritable haven for both casual listeners and audiophiles alike, and stocks a huge range of new and recycled vinyl, CDs and cassettes, as well as books and turntable equipment.

Music-wise, the specialty here is local independent releases, while the selection — which totals into the thousands — also includes a wide range of genres from artists and labels across the globe. This northside gem also plays host to events such as the occasional music trivia night, or the odd in-store gig showcasing local talent.
