A new record shop is opening this week in West London.

Located in Shepherd's Bush, Next Door Records will operate as a record shop, café and bar, and will stock new and vintage vinyl which, the shop's owners say, "will span a variety of sounds for both the living room and the dancefloor."

In addition to selling records, Next Door will host exhibitions, workshops and events such as book launches and music performances. The shop is the second record store to open in London this year after the team behind a crowdfunding campaign set up last year raised enough money to set up Disc Word in Deptford, South London.

Next Door, which opens on August 12, came about following a successful Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign, which saw the team behind it raise £4,231 of their original £3,000 goal last month.

Next Door Records can be found at 304 Uxbridge Road, London, W12 7LJ. Head here for more information.

Earlier this year, a campaign was set up to highlight the uncertain plight of many of the UK's independent record shops amid the lockdown that followed the spread of COVID-19.
