Aotea Square, Auckland, New Zealand
OPENED: ???, PHOTO: 1/15/2011

This store might be the wickedest in Auckland, if not all of New Zealand. Besides its utterly funky interior design, which is circular, with pie-shaped tables pointing in towards the center, the stores coolest feature is a mirrored ceiling about two stories high. Futuristic is how I would describe it, but really the store defies description--you just have to see it
