Daddy Kool Records


Price: $$ (good prices for records, records just aren't cheap)

Hours: Monday through Saturday 10am-8pm; Sunday 12pm-5pm

Daddy Kool Records is one of the best music stops in Tampa Bay with a well-rounded selection of both new and used (located in the back) records. They also sell comic books, CD's, and concert tickets (with a cheaper convenience fee) and supplies to clean your record player. Personally, a majority of the records I own come from Daddy Kool. Now they don't have one dollar records like you might find at ARTpool or Bananas (although you can find the occasional $3 one), but that means you don't have to look as hard for a record you'll actually want. 

I also really like that they have a full and up-to-date calendar on local events in the area on their website (mostly geared towards music obviously).

For more current information on what's going on, be sure to check out their Facebook and Instagram pages.
