Garter-belts, hazy rooms, and the iconic Moulin Rouge theatre perpetuate Pigalle – Saint-Georges’ racy reputation. Serving as Paris’ red-light district, this unapologetically coquettish neighbourhood pursues more than deep pockets and affronting eroticism. Pigalle – Saint-Georges fosters other passions, too—Pablo Picasso and Vincent van Gogh both painted here, local artisans make culinary delights by hand, and dedicated musicians can find antique instruments in this neighborhood’s specialty shops. Daytime is welcome in Pigalle – Saint-Georges, but the neighbourhood truly comes to life after dark.See places to stay Save this neighbourhood
