East Village record store Turntable Lab closed its E. 7th St location, moving to E. 10th St. soon
East Village record store Turntable Lab had it’s last weekend at its E. 7th Street digs, where it’s been since 2001, and are getting ready to move a little West. The store, which sells records, turntables and DJ gear, will soon reopen at its new home of 84 East 10th Street, which is between 3rd Ave and 4th Ave and is right beside ever-popular Black & White bar. While they haven’t set a opening date for the new location, Turntable Lab says it’ll be in operation this month.
We’re glad you’re sticking around and staying in the neighborhood, Turntable Lab.
120 EAST 7th STREET: Last week in the space, Sunday is the official last day before we reopen on 84 e.10th street… 2 years after launching turntablelab.com in 1999 (when our tagline was "Online Turntablist Goodz"), we started to scout our old NYU stomping grounds for a storefront. the rent was cheap because Alphabet City was still sketchy (you could still buy nickel bags at juice bars) and this space was a couple steps down with low ceilings. Previously it was a Japanese cafe that sold comic books. The picture is from the first day we got the keys, March 2001. We sold off the fixtures to the fridge guys on the Bowery (they totally ripped us off), then sanded the floors and painted the walls ourselves… #TTL7thSteet
