Southampton's Hub for Vinyl Lovers and Craft Beer Enthusiasts

“Whether you’re a vinyl collector, a craft beer lover or someone who likes good music, these things tend to swirl around in the same community so we thought ‘let’s make a place that does all that together.’”

Overdraft Records combines craft beer, and a 2000+ strong vinyl collection, making for a killer combination right in the heart of Southampton’s Shirley Neighbourhood, but we’re more than just having a drink or buying a record, it’s about doing so in a warm and friendly environment. Whether you’re here to browse records, sit with a coffee and a book, enjoy a taco or two from our Mexican street food kitchen or unwind and sample a few beers after a hard day, everyone is welcome.

Southampton Music Community at Heart

The music community in Southampton has been very important to the city and us, so we took the chance to give it a brand new record shop that’s combining the social aspects of live music, record shopping, vinyl DJ culture and fine craft ale. It’s a great hangout for lifelong collectors and those just discovering the warmth of vinyl but also a place were people can come to eat and drink.

Why beer and Vinyl?

Vinyl record enthusiasts seek a refreshing break from the soullessness of streaming services, while craft beer fans seek the kind of character and impact that could never come from a major global chain. Ultimately, it seems to us that what makes a vinyl record enthusiast tick, isn’t so different from what excites the craft beer audience; often they’re the same people, and that what we’ve tried to do here at ODR by providing a unique outlet to buy beer and vinyl under one roof.

What's with the name?

Overdraft Records gets it’s name from historically being a bank at number 383 Shirley high street since 1905. The large 20inch thick steel bank vault remains and now used as record & draft beer cellar.

INTRODUCING STYLUS 4.4%

Not many record shops can say they have their own exclusive beer. In collaboration with the Unity Brewing Company team, we’ve come up with the very first beer original just for us. Named appropriately STYLUS and made right here in Southampton, it’s golden, very refreshing and perfect for a session with any vinyl under the needle.
