One of London’s most idiosyncratically decorated shops, Intoxica! – a vinyl-only store – is kitted out with bamboo wall coverings and glowering tribal masks. You wouldn’t want to be the last person locking up here, but it makes for a browsing experience that’s as big on character as it is on classic records. The ground-floor shelves are stacked with everything from reggae, funk and ’60s beat to exotica and easy listening; there’s also a good range of alternative and new wave from the 1970s to today and a great soundtrack selection. The basement is packed with soul and blues, and its jazz section is especially big on British artists.
