Antone's Records

After the success of the nightclub he founded in 1975, Clifford Antone opened the doors to Antone's Record Shop in the summer of 1987. Located across the street from his legendary nightclub, the record shop quickly became the place to hang out before seeing whatever show was to take place later that evening. Still in its original location, just north of the UT campus, Antone's Record Shop continues to host one of the largest selections of used vinyl in central Texas.
