In the days of digital, for a record store to thrive requires more than a little entrepreneurial spirit - and the music Gods looking kindly on you doesn't hurt either. Luckily, Sweat Records is much more than a record retailer. The Little Haiti venue is the unofficial headquarters for Miami's indie set. It's a music store, cafe and event space that hosts everything from vegan brunches to movie nights. Their on-site vegan coffee bar serves up local favorite Panther Coffee, empanadas and other baked eats. And in addition to music, they sell magazines, books, gifts and other carefully curated made-in-Miami offerings for the hipster crew. The question is, what can't Sweat do?
