Very good but no wheelchair access to the basement part of the shop

Overview

This shop is a great place for wheelchair users if you're not interested in jazz. All the jazz stuff is in the basement, which is not wheelchair-accessible. Everything else is on the ground floor, there's a ramp for getting into the shop, and there's even an accessible toilet.

Transport & Parking

2

There are no step-free stations nearby. Zillions of buses go up and down nearby Oxford St and Regent St. I wouldn't dream of trying to park in this area.

Access

3

Staff will deploy a sturdy aluminium ramp if you can get their attention from outside. The entire ground floor is wheelchair-accessible and spacious. The entire basement, which houses the jazz music, can only be reached by a staircase, though if you know what jazz things you want, staff will gladly fetch them for you.

Toilets

3

This is the first sheet-music shop I have ever come across with an accessible toilet. It's a good, spacious, well-designed toilet, and loses TWO stars because someone has very thoughtlessly tied the red emergency cord around the grab-rail, making the cord absolutely no use at all if you fall to the floor and need to summon assistance. See my photo below.

Staff

5

The staff are lovely, and eager to help. One funny moment: one member of staff, after I had got into the shop, looked at the aluminium wheelchair ramp and said to her colleague: "I always wondered what that was". This suggests a lack of basic disability awareness training!
