Vinyl is big throughout Asheville, and especially at this shop and community center. A local singer/songwriter took over the historic Citizen Times newspaper building downtown, transforming it into a vinyl pressing facility, a recording studio, a farm-to-table cafe and horseshoe-shaped cocktail bar, and a record shop. Bartenders curate the daily tunes, playing both A and B sides of their extensive record collection. Patrons can see how the records get made through a large glass window overlooking the press, which operates seven days a week. An adjacent record store sells new recordings along with rare and collectable vinyl. Leather couches and communal work tables placed throughout the bright, airy space let digital nomads do what they do best.
