Small Business Spotlight: Black Dog Vinyl in Plainfield!

Black Dog Vinyl Cafe is a new addition to the ever-growing small business community in Plainfield.

They are a family owned business taking their love of great music, and great coffee and turning it into their life’s work!

Live music is one of their biggest passions as a couple and as a family.

BDVC is a good vibes only record store with over 2,000 records on the shelves ranging from classic rock, blues, country, musical soundtracks, and today’s top hits… there is something for every kind of music enthusiast!

They don’t just sell, they buy too – if you have any old vinyl collecting dust in your basement, bring it in and they’ll buy it off you.

If you’re looking to get into the vinyl game, but don’t have a record player, they have brand new Crosley players hitting their shelves this week, alongside Edifier speakers.

A true one-stop shop for a vinyl love affair, Black Dog Vinyl Cafe has everything you could possibly need!

Not into the vinyl scene?  No problem! Black Dog Vinyl Cafe isn’t just a one stop shop for all things vinyl. After all, it is a ‘vinyl cafe’. Along with great records, they also sell great coffee! their already-infamous Bourbon Bean is wildly popular with their returning regulars; smooth and bold with a unique twist, it’s easy drinking that won’t get you in trouble!

They feature specialty lattes with an ode to all things music, the ‘Thin Lizzy’ and ‘American Bandstand’, which can be adapted to fit any customers preferences – dairy free coffee fanatics are more than welcome.

New seasonal additions to their menu include the ‘Smashing Pumpkin’ and  ‘Humble Pie’. Both paired best with their apple cider or pumpkin glaze donut leave customers feeing warm and fuzzy inside despite the cooling temperatures outside.

Once restrictions are lifted, they will be featuring live music weekly!

The pandemic has left all business with unique challenges.  As a new business trying to build a following and earn a good reputation, they stay open as a “grab and go” cafe or you can call your order in for curbside pickup. Their retail side remains open while following all the established CDC guidelines regarding sanitizing, disinfecting, and following the stated occupancy limitations.
