Washington, DC

We’ll be closing up the shop in March, taking a little break, and opening the Hyattsville location in the fall.

Thanks to Justin for sending word: “Red Onion Records is going to be leaving their U street location and move up to Hyattsville.”

Let’s get serious folks – 13 years ago I moved to DC with no job, a cat, a gal, and lots and lots of records. I found a little basement space on 18th St and opened Red Onion Records & Books. The ceiling was low, so was the rent, and we really loved our time there. We had parties, book readings, so many great in-store performances, it was truly a magical place. Nine years later we packed everything up and moved out of the basement and a few blocks over to a bright and sunny space on U St. I’ve loved our time there and all the new faces we’ve met, but it’s time to say goodbye to DC. We’ll be closing up the shop in March, taking a little break, and opening the Hyattsville location in the fall. This wasn’t an easy decision, but we’re looking forward to what the future will bring. I just want to take this opportunity to say thank you to everybody who has ever been a part of this crazy adventure, we couldn’t have done it without you. ❤️
