Based in the Karolinenviertel and awarded by CNN as one of the ten best record shops of its kind, Groove City is one of the beacons of Hamburg’s vinyl landscape.

All you need is vinyl: at home in Hamburg’s Karolinenviertel since 1995 and owned by Marga Glanz, this iconic record shop offers a hand-picked selection of music vinyl. Providing a curated choice of hip-hop records, the shop has long become a magnet for beat-loving music connoisseurs from near and far. What is more, Groove City also offers a nuanced selection of jazz and soul records and is highly acknowledged for its wide range of African and Oriental music.

Groove City is nothing for lazy people: Whether you just nod to the rhythm or wear your dancing shoes to soul and R'n'B, the record shop serves music lovers who listen with physical exertion. Hip hop, electro, funk, jazz and reggae are in the record boxes here and lie on the turntables. In order to avoid slips on the dance floor, especially not fashionable ones, the shop in the Karoviertel also offers suitable sneakers for sale. Since the early nineties, Groove City has been the best place in Hamburg for beats, bass and R'n'B - at different locations, but firmly anchored in St. Pauli since 2004. In Marktstraße in the Karolinenviertel the shop is easy to find for specialists and curious walk-in customers.

CITY AREA PORTRAIT Sternschanze & Karoviertel

The two districts around Schanzenstraße and Schulterblatt are always in motion. Here, it is colourful and lively, and it has become much fancier in the last few years. Still, the district in the borough of Altona has preserved much of its rough, leftist-alternative nonconformism.
