Marv’s Music is a place to talk about, think about and listen to music. It’s a shop, a coffeehouse, a lounge, a concert venue, a debate floor and just about anything else you want it to be. Here you’ll find good friends, great conversation, turntables, soul-warming drinks and—oh, yeah—about 3,000 new vinyl records.
