Three men on a music mission have opened York’s first vinyl café.
The FortyFive Café on Micklegate opened on Monday, inspired by Stephen Frears’ romcom High Fidelity and influenced by Bradford’s Indy Coffee Roasters & Brew Bar.
In it Dom White, Steve McNichol and Dan Kentley have crafted a unique space to share their love for quality music, deliciously strong coffee, and dangerously cheesy toasties.
Dom, Steve and Dan got the idea for the business after touring the US in their rock band The Family Ruin.
They noticed how people weren’t buying their CDs, apart from at their shows. So they decided to do something to bring back music as a physical entity, in the face of intangible streams and downloads
Back in York after the tour, the friends began a record business. Beginning with Dom’s dad’s vinyl collection, they built an online store.
