Inspired by the social activities and music associated with the early 90’s, The LP Cafe has become one of the staples in Watford for youth music and culture since its opening in 2013. The atmosphere inside takes cues from traditional record stores and modern-day coffeeshops, featuring numerous new, old and unique music in vinyl format. For the eager fans that want to purchase any vinyl albums, the staff have a number of record players to test the music before buying. The minimalist, modern decor allows the customers to comfortably sit inside but also maintains enough free space for live artist and band performances.
A recent addition of breakfast and lunch meals is now available for customers, and includes a variety of cakes, sandwiches, pastries and cold drinks. The venue is also available for private events, tailored for the customer’s exact specifications.
The location is convenient and easy-to-find, even for first time visitors in the town. The shop can be found in The Parade, in a quaint corner of the busy high street populated with shops, pubs, and numerous restaurants. London’s Overground transport lines connect to Watford Junction, which is a 10 minute walk to the high street. Other links include Watford Underground Station which connects the Metropolitan line, and is only a short 15 minute walk away from the cafe. Bus lines such as the 142 and 258 are also available, and offer direct stops at Watford High Street and Junction.
The staff is known for their hospitality and friendliness, making the customer service at the venue impeccable. Another factor that cannot be missed is the signature blends that are available for customers. There’s a variety of 3 different, sustainable coffee blends, each with a distinct taste and texture to try.
