You can easily immerse yourself for hours in a sea of vinyl, CD racks and 7” singles at the mutli award-winning “Groucho’s Record Store” on the Nethergate. It’s also a ticket agency for gigs around the country and runs buses to some larger events. Probably one of the best design focused shops in Scotland, “DCA Shop” (inside Dundee Contemporary Art) showcases high-quality design work including jewellery, stationery, books and toys and limited edition artworks, many produced in the DCA Print Studio. “Arkive” and “Manifesto” are two much-loved fashion names in Dundee stocking well known and hard-to-find labels. “Spex Pistols’s” quirky interior and eyecatching external artwork is a haven for beautifully designs spectacles and sunglasses and just across the road on Westport, “Gallery 48” stocks a rotating selection of prints, artwork and one-off pieces created by up and coming artists and designers.

 

 

Indie Markets

Many of Dundee’s artists, jewellers, designers and artisan food traders often come together to create pop-up markets particularly in the Summer months or around Christmas time.

Indie Food Shops

Walking through the door of “Braithwaite’s” coffee and tea merchants on Castle Street is like stepping back in time.
