At first glance, it’s hard not to mistake this music haven for a French bistro, but that’s just how Fool’s Gold record label founder Dust La Rock wants it. The petite store serves up T-shirts ($22–$25) and canvas tote bags ($25) screen-printed with the house logo designed by La Rock. There are also collaborative items, including wool laptop cases codesigned with Italian brand Pijama ($50). If you’re not in the mood to shop, discuss music with your friends at the tables and chairs outside, or grab a stool at the music bar, where you can listen to two iPod Touches featuring artists on the Fool’s Gold label, such as Duck Sauce, the Suzan and up-and-comer Cubic Zirconia. CDs ($10) and vinyl ($10–$15) and DVDs of live concerts ($15) are also available.
