400 records and 14,000 digital tracks. That’s what’s at the heart of Steven Sparshott and Mai Polic’s DeepGroove bar. The idea of a vinyl bar came to Sparshott while working in Singapore, where shared music spaces are everywhere.
Come in, thumb through the collection and choose something to play on some exceptionally high quality equipment. But if rifling through someone else’s collection isn’t your thing, the duo encourages you to BYO. DeepGroove plays everything from ACDC to Madonna and Jamiroquai – everything’s welcome.
The bar serves cocktails, spirits and beer and, as with the music library, the staff is open to suggestions. The tangy DeepGroove Yuzu cocktail with gin and sake strikes a chord with customers.
The food menu works to please the Newtown punters with no-fail fare: pizza and burgers.
