Paris recommendations? (Non record related)

Off for a few days in Paris with the girl...just wondered if there's any nice areas just to soak it up?

Cheers.

  • Man there's like a million, that's the problem... I haven't been but there's a cool looking African themed junk-art-assemblage bar/museum type place called Le Comptoir General that I've always wanted to visit. Shit, other strutteurs will know better than me.

    Hot wine. Soak as much up as humanly possible.

    Pretty easy to walk around, subway is good.  Avez-vous un peu Francais?  Plus facile si oui.  Louvre is mad busy, best done early or late doors.  Eiffel is a must.  I had a gig outside the Pompidou, locals knew the good coffee places close around that.  No time for digging so pass on that. Hth.

    I combed the whole city last summer.

    Saint-Ouen flea market is a must.  There is a whole building filled with record stalls.  I left with some grails and even a few underpriced gems.

    I would also try heartbeat vinyl.  They had the best selection but the prices were out of control.  Superfly records is crate digger ground zero.  I walked out empty handed, but you might find something.

    I was told to look up Victor Kiswell, but never got around to it.

    Enjoy!

    One of my buddy Bertrand started the station Lemellotron.com. Some seriously good music coming from these guys:
