Born Bad in Paris

DSC00175This summer I’ve visited Paris in France. Because it was the third time on a row and I’ve already seen all the highlights, I thought it would be a great idea to plan a ‘Rockabilly-day’ in this beautiful city of lights.
It’s crazy to walk through the city with 38 degrees Celsius and hope to find a shop, so I was well prepared and looked it up at the Internet.

The first stop was at BDSC00167orn Bad Recordshop in the 11th district (11 Rue Saint-Sabin). A record shop with its own label that has signed excellent French rock groups. But they also got an array of cool sound, from punk and 70s rock ‘n’ roll, to blues and hardcore. There’s even a special rockabilly and 50’s section.
A shop not to miss. But that wasn’t all, they also got a sister store nearby in the district Bastille (17 Rue Keller) called Born Bad Retro Clothing. As soon as I walked in, it really made me feel like I was in the fifties. The store was very nicely decorated and they offer a wide range of Tiki collectables, men’s clothing, women’s clothing, shoes, Rock ‘n’ Roll books, lots of jewelry and of course bags which I couldn’t resist….DSC00168
Very friendly staff who gave me the opportunity to shoot some pictures.
Just a shop to visit, whenever you’re in Paris!

And what is a better place to end your shopping day in style? To have a burger and a milkshake (or something else like a Be-bop Bananasplit) in Happy Days Diner.
A diner with american specialties in a fifties decor. In Paris you can find 5 of these diners, but also in other French cities like Lyon, Lille and Biarritz.

All I can say is Paris, I’ll be back – Je reviendrai!
