I know what you're thinking; finally Margate has a record shop where you can drink coffee and get your hair cut while doing yoga! Cliffs is a very cool new hangout on Northdown Road in Cliftonville. 

The last time I stepped foot in this building was about 8/9 years ago when it was a vintage clothing shop. Despite knowing I wouldn't be buying any sequinned garments there now, I was still really excited to see the premises brought back to life.

Together with the lovely mid-century modern furniture, the enormous skylight above keeps the place looking bright and feeling fresh. 

The record selection is good, with a lot of variety. There's even cute listening posts throughout...

Cliffs is pretty unique. Over two floors, it's a large community space and there are plenty of areas to relax in. It's an ideal working environment for those who want to escape the office or need a calm spot to plan projects in. 

Whether you're meeting friends, looking for a classic album on vinyl or simply on the hunt for one of their donuts (I went for the maple bacon - it was amazing), Cliffs can keep you entertained! I can't wait to find myself a quiet corner and get down to some serious writing in there. The hairdressers will open in the next few weeks. 

Visit Cliffs at 172 Northdown Road, Margate.

  1. Now that sounds good, its great to see shops moving into Cliftonville. I love #Margate but that love also extends to #Cliftonville.
    Thanet is the place to be, all of the new ventures all over the Island make it THE place to visit and by all accounts relocate to. I am an incomer of thirty odd years and I have no regrets Thanet is a wonderful location.
