Optimal Records is sort of the mother of Independent record stores in Munich and has been going since 1982. The store is pretty big and focuses mainly on Dance and Electronic music, but also has a decent selection of new and used Rock and Independent vinyl. Usually the store is full of DJ-types who check out the latest 12″s. They have very knowledgeable staff and know about the different musical styles and what used vinyl is worth. If you are interested in this kind of music check out their website where you can buy tickets for gigs at top venues in Munich. They also do gigs in the shop itself.On about 120sqm of retail space you will find not only vinyl, CDs and DVDs, but also books, records- bags and T-shirts. If you have a little bit of time to rummage, you can surely find one or another treasure. The only downside is that approx 50% is overpriced. But still: Recommended!
