Balades Sonores

Music in Montmartre & Northern Paris

One of Paris' best vinyl shops, Balades Sonores sprawls over two adjacent buildings. The ground floor of 1 av Trudaine stocks contemporary pop, rock, metal, garage and French music (all genres). Its basement holds secondhand blues, country, new wave and punk from the '60s to '90s. Next door, No 3 has soul, jazz, funk, hip hop, electronica and world music.

It's also a great place to pick up vintage memorabilia (posters, T-shirts etc), new turntables and streetwear such as hoodies, and info about upcoming gigs and DJ sets.
