Yeah Records, located very close to Viehofer Platz, is one of the best record stores in town. Metal, Rock, Indie, Punk, Wave, Blues, Jazz and Reggae fill the assortment, most of them are second-hand. You can also get tickets for the concerts in the city (and if you need them: tips for going out). A good starting point before you get lost in the clubs of Viehofer Platz.
Viehofer Pl. 14, 45127 Essen
