This place reminds me of my youth when we spent hours hunting for new music at record stores. I could spend the whole day there.. definitely recommended!

Amoeba SF is smaller than Amoeba Hollywood down in Los Angeles. Nevertheless, prepare to spend a lot of time and money digging through the shelves and finding great music.

This place is heaven for music lovers. They have a large range of genres in records, cds and movies at good prices. Most seemed to be second hand and some brand new. Lots of cool posters on the walls and interesting merchandise. Staff were friendly...More

Didn't visit every record shop in San Francisco, but this was my favorite of those that I found. Countless of new and used vinyls in all categories. A must visit for vinyl collectors. Very reasonable prices.

I'm not a big music person but could appreciate a shop like this with so many choices of music to choose from, along with tshirts and souveniers. A real music fan could spend hours here I think. Exterior of the building was interesting as well.

Real Groovy is the equivalent store in Auckland, New Zealand. The stores stock similar selections of Vinyl, DVD, CD etc etc. It is great to see stores like this still in operation for the enthusiast. 1987

There are some bargains to be had and some obscurities to be found. If you're really into music, put aside at least an hour to browse, or a few if you can spare.

Having been a fan of Amoeba Records for a couple of years now, I felt it was my duty to visit their original location. The Amoeba in Hollywood is my favorite record store of all time. This location is not as large, but it is...More

Nearby
Haight-Ashbury
The area surrounding the intersection of Haight and
Ashbury streets, “The Haight” still exudes vibes of
the 1960s counterculture as a haven for vintage
clothes, music, pop posters and body piercing shops.
While the Summer of Love ended decades ago,
Haight-Ashbury has turned into a melting pot of
hippies, hipsters, and professionals. Walking through
its streets can still feel like stepping back in time.
