What a great shop this is. We discovered it by accident one time and we've been back several times since. A word of warning: allow yourself plenty of time if you do visit. There is a lot to see/listen to. It's a big place. If you walk in through one of their doors and then make your way through the... More

Concerto is just one of dozens of superb spots for digging in Amsterdam, most of the best shops aren't listed on TA though. (Hit me up if you want tips). This is one of the bigger shops though, with acres of vinyl spread across its many levels. Start here, but save some pennies as if you're a vinyl hound you'll... More

Every time I go to Amsterdam I have tried to find a moment for getting to Concerto. This is certainly one of the best record shops I've seen! Not only it does have a great selection of new records, also the basement is filled with some second hand bargains among which you can find some real jewels. Trust me!

One of the best CD/record shops I've ever visited. A huge selection of new and second hand CDs and vinyl, as well as a coffee shop. Also hosts live performances.

I have simple rule - buy vinyl on every trip. First trip to Amsterdam was perfect to stick to this rule. €2 per 1 vinyl and 5+1 special offer = €10 for 6 and lot of happiness. P.S. There's also a little caffe with the best cup of coffee americano I've ever drunk.

It was an amazing place, great ambiance and bit of a hipster style/vintage. The barista girl also gave me a homemade banana bread slice, that was amazing :)

Staying in Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)

Neighbourhood Profile
Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically significant as it is perennially popular. Whether you’re a history buff, architecture enthusiast, shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get lost in a moody meander and a key component to any sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws include the Anne Frank House, the Bloemenmarkt floating flower market, an enviable assortment of independent boutiques along De Negen Straatjes, and of course all of Grachtengordel’s lovely canals and bridges.
