— about us

Acquired in November 2023, co-owners Rebecca and Ian, whilst welcoming all musical genres provide a Country and American twist to your café and listening experience. FortyFive Vinyl Café is one of York’s quirky and unique places to hang out…we like that!

“Combining our love of great music and great coffee with simple fuss-free food and a selection of local beers and wine, we welcome you to join us in our friendly, relaxed environment.”

Our extensive range of vinyl fulfils all your crate digging needs, served with our specially selected House Blend coffee and our famous grilled cheese sandwiches at very competitive prices.

Owned by music fans, our aim at FortyFive is to establish a community of passionate music lovers with particular interest in the independent and establishing music scene. We regularly showcase exclusive in-store events from the UK’s top upcoming artists which are professionally recorded and filmed for our Live At FortyFive YouTube channel.

From breakfast to lunch, or snacks over a cold beer while enjoying music played straight from the Jukebox, you’ll find yourself right at home at FortyFive.

See y'all soon!
