Turntable Rock Café and Lounge: A Casual Korean Gastropub With a Serious Sound System
Just one thing, before you head off on your weekend-ing way. We have this gastropub full of old records and spicy fried chicken you may want to utilize tonight.
Sure, we’ll go on.
On to Turntable Rock Café & Lounge, a casual new spot with a notable Korean chef in the kitchen and way above average hi-fi sound system. It’s open now in NoMad for when you may need or desire such things. And its best traits are broken down for your convenience, below…
The owner here is a world-traveling audiophile who has amassed over 50,000 records. Turntable was inspired by his passion for music. Look around, you’ll find a catwalk lined with his LP collection, vintage Van Halen concert posters, even a photo of the audio engineer responsible for the crisp hi-fi sound here.
