We're an independent record store established in 1982.
Awesome cult movie section.
Old-school music and video shop with a huge and largely uncurated selection offering little or no advantage over Amazon.
Better than Rough Trade.
They have an amazing 😀 selection of records
Love it or hate it, paying a visit to this music mecca is always essential when in town.
Catch some tunes on vinyl like Adam and Darby at Waterloo.
Impressive music selections and everything "beyond" & I'm not talking about the cashier who knows every record forwards & backwards.
Possibly the best record shop in the world
This place is amazing. Find uncommon vinyls at fair prices.
Great records and cute gifts
Very cool if you're into vinyl records! It looks like they have a good lineup of bands come in as well.
Get some tunes on Earth Day, and 5% of your total check goes to support eco-friendly causes.
A great place to take a pedal cab from 4th and Lamar to buy the new Beyoncé album before they close for the night.
Parking is terrible when it's busy but still the best record store in Austin. Staff is always super helpful and they know their stuff!
This place is truly vintage. If you have a record player and are looking for records, Waterloo has a great selection of not only older artists, but modern music. It is heaven for hipsters.
Great selection of new and old vinyl. Prices Range depending on what you're looking for. Has received the "Best Record Store" award from the Austin Chronicle since its opening.
Have so many live performances! Amazing people work there, Russel is a doll!
Outstanding record store! Had all of the music I was in dire need of and also gave me a discount for checking in on Foursquare!
There is also a fabulous used movie section here where you can get DVDs for under $5, the same as renting elsewhere. The place just has a great feel to it that makes you want to stay all day long...
A 10% discount for "newbies"/ first checkin on regularly priced merch. Sweet deal! Also a great store to find items to suit any musical taste and an excellent selection of TX music.
Whether you're looking for a Top 40 jam or an EP from some ragamuffins on the outer ring of Pitchfork's radar, they've got you covered.
One of the best record shops that I've been to; be sure to check out the local and new releases near the left entrance and also hit up the listening stations to listen to some new tunes.
I use to work here. This place knows its stuff.
shop the back wall of the store for the employee picks. They pick some of the best local and regional titles.
Best record Shop!
support local businesses! they have quite a selection!
While you're here, why not pick up Milagres "Glowing Mouth"?
Catch Waterloo's free parking lot shows, then go inside and buy a record or two. You know, keep the music business alive.
The music store hosts frequent in-store performances of big name and up-and-coming musicians. Waterloo Records is a must destination during South by Southwest and Austin City Limits Music Festival.
Some of the best intimate shows have taken place here... and the complimentary beer for customers is just an added plus :) Delta Spirit playing here during SXSW - More info on do512.com
An Austin institution for independent music, walk over on a Tuesday to pick up some new vinyls and possibly catch a live in-store performance.

Best Record Store! Support local businesses!
Classic Record / CD Store. Great in-store performances can be seen here.
Good music and movies here..they still sell records here as well..one of my favorite spots in Austin...good spot when SXSW is going on..free entertainment..
Always find fun and quirky gifts here.
The used record side of the store is at least as big as the new part, if not bigger, and you can top this off with a great selection of shirts making this our top pick for Austin.
Did you know that you can bring in a gift card from anywhere that sells music (Best Buy, Target) and exchange it for Waterloo merchandise & music? - Bridget, LA Marketing Rep
Obviously they have a great selection of new and used music... But also check out the awesome movie selection. They have more Criterions for sale than anywhere in Austin.
Just got Decade of Aggression by Slayer for $8.99! War Ensemble!!!!
This place is very dangerous to your bank account. You WILL spend a bunch of money here if you like music.
For the guy who brought his baby to see J Mascis at Waterloo - earplugs! Also, while she might like him in another 14 years or so, right now your baby doesn't give a shut about J Macsis.
Tip for the guy who brought his baby to see J Mascis at Waterloo - earplugs.
Tip for the lady who brought her own tambourine - nobody else wants to hear it. Thanks.
