I love coffee. But what’s cooler than just another coffee shop, is a coffee shop that’s also a record and antique store. Well, that would be Black Gold Records in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn.
Housing vinyls of different genres, you can come and dig through crates to find a record (they’re a dying breed), or, check out some of their less than average antiques like taxidermy or a torso statue of organs.
Whether you’re into all that other stuff or not, there’s also coffee. And good coffee at that. They also have a selection of delicious treats, like cookies from The Good Batch.
I got their own Black Gold Cold Brew. Refreshing and with a great, rich flavor, this cup was just what I needed. Shout out to Zagat for featuring this photo in their favorite Coffee Week photos.
Name: Black Gold Records
Location: 461 Court Street, Brooklyn
The Long and Short: Would I go back? Yes, the vibe of this place is really fun and relaxed and the coffee is great.
Would I recommend it? Totally. Coffee, cookies, tunes, you can’t lose.
