Vinyl Destination

Welcome to Vinyl Destination!


Our 1920’s character building is a unique hub for music lovers, coffee aficionados, hot deskers and the local community!



We stock a wide selection of new and preloved vinyl, CDs, music books, movies, posters, turntables and kiwiana as well as providing a sampling outlet for our partners.



We love music and are building a business around as many elements as we can. So far a radio station (The Station), cafe, venue, music store and PR business.

With a strong physical presence in the heart of Tauranga Vinyl Destination is also a place where we can bring your brand to life.


Our "hole-food" eatery features Excelso coffee with a delicious bagel and donut menu.


We provide a neutral environment to launch your new product, house a “pop-up” outlet, activation location or function venue.


As a performance venue we offer full production, catering, entertainment, guest speaker and performer options as well as having full broadcast connectivity for live streaming or radio/tv broadcasting.


Our shareholders all play music either professionally or for fun. Ranging from members of The Feelers, Zed and Stella to Rawiri (Kiwi Vinyls) to our founder Grant Hislop who founded The Rock, Kiwi FM, Coastline FM (now More FM) and co-founded Radioworks (now part of MediaWorks)

Grant has worked with some of NZ’s most successful bands including Goodshirt, Pluto, Goldenhorse, Evermore, Opshop,Shihad, Anika Moa, Jordan Luck and Fur Patrol and is planning to develop local talent on our new label.
