A new concept in Paris, the Walrus is both a record shop and a bar that organises regular concerts and events. The musical tastes lean towards indie, rock and pop artists; on sale are both CDs and LPs, as well as books, band T-shirts and concert posters; and the bar serves coffee, juices, regional beers and even Brooklyn lager on draught.
