With Spotify, YouTube and Apple Music, we have a world of music quite literally at our fingertips. But for old school audiophiles and aficionados of analog audio, there’s something so satisfying of about the experience of buying a vinyl record. There’s just something about slipping a shiny new record out of its sleeves, placing it on a turntable and gently dropping the needle.

Which is a far more elaborate process than just hitting “next” on Spotify.

Nestled within the quaint neighbourhood of Ann Siang Hill, White Label Records is a hip record store by day and transforms into a bar by night.

Make Vinyl Great Again

After five years of sharing their deep love for music and its most iconic recording format through the social e-commerce platform #vinyloftheday, founders Kurt Loy and Darren Tan took the plunge with the launch of their first brick-and-mortar venture.

Serving as a community space for music enthusiasts, White Label offers the perfect experience as one can relax and kick back over food and drinks, thumb through records, catch DJs and live acts, and meet other crate diggers.

Apart from stocking a current selection of records and highlights from various eras, White Label will feature a regularly rotating, curated selection of offerings from local and regional record stores so there’s always something new waiting for you each time you visit the store.

For hardcore analog audio enthusiasts, you can expect many special music-themed nights to follow as the founders will showcase vinyl records from their diverse personal collections. Who knows, if you like what you hear, they will be more than happy to help you track down a copy!

With warm-toned lighting illuminating the space, White Label provides a casual, laid back space and chill vibes from the moment you enter the store.

A record store by day, this space transforms into a bar by dusk, offering a rotating all day that features a selection of cold brews, mixed drinks, craft beers and bar bites. All beers and house pours are $10 nett.

White Label’s signature cocktails will include a Vodka-based fresh fruit Mojito, the White Label Iced Tea, a tea-based Long Island, as well as a Chrysanthemum vodka martini. A seasonal selection of handpicked single malts and gin, craft beers, boutique champagne and wines will also be available.

If you’re craving for a meal, limited lunch sets will be available at midday, on a first-come-first-serve basis.

Looking for a space to wind down after work? Get acquainted with the magic of analog music and head on to White Label Records to indulge in your love for all things vintage and crate dive for that limited edition gold clad Pink Floyd LP – or Taylor Swift’s Reputation, if that’s how you roll.
