This was the most amazing place. My daughter and I spent over an hour looking through albums. The staff was friendly and helpful. The building has retained its charm and is very welcoming and comfortable.

Very helpful staff and a nice well organised selection of records means I always find something here to take home. A must visit stop on every visit to Chicago. Parking is always easy in the surrounding streets.
