The Analog Vault: Books, Mags and Vinyls All in One Spot

Esplanade may be the destination for live performances, but it’s also home to The Analog Vault, a new cozy spot that’s big on its collection of records, books and magazines.


Brought to you by vinyl records retailer Vinylicious Records, book collector/seller, The Arkhivist, and independent magazine retailer Magpie Magazines, The Analog Vault contains a comprehensive mix of products for those who still appreciate physical formats of media.

A curated range of new and used records across multiple genres such as rock, jazz and pop take up majority of the shop space. There’s even a Vinyl Vault where highly sought-after vinyl rarities and test pressings (sample vinyl records) are sold, as well as intimate “Whisky and Jazz” sessions where customers can enjoy whisky tastings while listening to a wide repertoire of fine jazz recordings on vinyl.


Book lovers can seek out interesting titles that cover subjects like music, design and culture, all curated by The Arkhivist, while magazine fanatics can grab up-and-coming and established publications brought in by Magpie Magazines.

The Analog Vault is located at Esplanade Mall, #02-13 (8 Raffles Avenue, Singapore 039802). Opening hours are 1pm to 9pm daily.
