About Us

Black Dots has been independently owned and operated since 2013. Now in our third and biggest location on Grant Street in the heart of Buffalo’s West Side, we have expanded from a small boutique shop to a media outlet. We now carry CDs, cassettes, DVDs and VHS, band tees, stereo gear, and more. Our full-service bar opened in October 2019.

We’re here seven days a week to help meet all your audio needs. Stop by the shop or browse or online collection, we add new titles every single day!

Looking to sell your used media? Find out more about selling here, give us a call at (716) 725-0010, or email us at blackdotsbuffalo@gmail.com.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Covid-19, all customers and staff are required to wear a mask while inside the store at all times. We regularly clean and sanitize the store throughout the day, including the restrooms, door handles, and countertops. We ask that you please use the hand sanitizer provided when you come in. 

Follow us on Instagram and Facebook for stock updates and newly added titles, as well as fliers for upcoming events at the bar.
