Any self-respecting Parisian or well-informed tourist will have checked out a free gig or two at L'International, linchping of the capital's rock scene. And anyone who's been there will jump at the news that the bar's owners have opened a record shop a few houses down the legendary Rue Moret. Unsurprisingly, it's a lovingly curated affair, the vast collection (both new and second-hand) taking in everything from wispy folk to heavy noise. The friendly staff will guide you through the maze with personalised recommendations, and two listening booths are on hand to help you make up your mind. Our only quibble is the higher-than-average prices; but it's hard to begrudge a couple of euros to the guys who put on free concerts next door.
