Wine and vinyl make for a heady mixture at this dangerously appealing wine shop-cum-record store.

A dangerous place for collectors of both wine and vinyl, the Cuve à Son record store-cum-wine shop is the debut opening from Christophe Lepreux, who previously worked at record label Nocturne, FNAC and for a slew of renowned wine merchants. Going his own way this time, Lepreux’s twin interests have been ingeniously combined, as bottles of medium-range organic and natural wines (€14-€44) share shelf space with new and second-hand records across all genres (€5-€50). In a space decorated with brilliant re-imaginings of classic album sleeves by artist Avataar (including the Sex Pistols, Dr Dre and Nirvana), there’s also a savvy range of deals: for example, for any bottle bought (even a €6 beer), you can bag one of a selected range of vinyls for €5.
