Unless you have a full wallet or a penchant for psychological torture, you may want to steer clear of Nationale 7. This alluring furniture shop-cum-record store, brought to you by the team behind Ground Zero, will tempt even the most disciplined consumers with its array of sleek vinyls and vintage sofas. The music selection covers everything from classic '70s soul to the latest rock; if you're looking for the gear to play it on, the basement houses a range of top-grade hi-fi systems. The furniture, meanwhile, is all retro: '50s lamps and tables sit alongside 'authentic' jukeboxes from back when your parents were young. Only problem is, if you actually want to buy anything (and believe us – you will), you'll end up paying over the odds. Don't say we didn't warn you.
