It is the only record shop in Tbilisi. The store unites 3 main directions: record shop, a podcast and the label. I love hanging out here, the atmosphere and vibe of this place is incredible. It is a hang out place for all the DJ's and music lovers.   I appreciate this place also because after 2008 war, the country fell behind, struggling with poverty. Everything built fell apart once again. Despite this, friends and  DJ’s did not abandon their passion and dedication for electronic music, they opened up a Vodkast record shop in 2015. Since then, it has become a favorite place for many people to hang out, listen to great music an buy good vinyls.
