Record Store to Join Bottleworks Plans
INDIANAPOLIS - Indianapolis-based Hendricks Commercial Properties has announced the record store Square Cat Vinyl is set to open in 2020 as part of phase one of the Bottleworks District. The new shop, which will be in The Garage at Bottleworks, is the latest addition to the project that aims to revamp the Coca-Cola building on Massachusetts Avenue.
Square Cat Vinyl established its first location in Fountain Square in 2016 as a record store venue with a bar, stage and vinyls for sale.
The shop’s bar services won’t be available at the new Bottleworks location but one of its main goals will be helping to curate live music at The Garage. The company has also hired local craftsman Loran Bohall to build all the shop’s shelving and will have a local music section.
“I’ve been to Ponce City Market in Atlanta and seen how vibrant it is. And so I’m jazzed to be a part of something similar here in Indy,” Kurt Phillips, an owner at Square Cat Vinyl said in a news release. Phillips also believes the space will appeal to both local and out-of-town music-lovers.
The announcement of the record store follows plans for two new entertainment tenants that will also be part of phase one of Bottleworks.
