The Flip Side Dubai is the emirate’s first independent record shop. This homegrown Alserkal Avenue gem offers a wide range of vinyl – including Arabic music, regional talents and international artists (across many genres).
Much more than just a record store, The Flip Side is housed within a huge Al Quoz warehouse and features a variety of cosy corners to relax, listen to music and get a spot of work done (free WiFi is available). The folks at Flip Side also host regular events and workshops exploring music in the region including documentary screenings.
Music related magazines and turntable accessories are also available for purchase.
Insider tips: The Flip Side Dubai is open from 12noon until 9pm Sunday through to Saturday. Online shopping available here.
