Montmartre & Pigalle Tips (41)

Montmartre & Pigalle: Montmartre

Would it be possible to go to Paris without walking one night around Montmartre, descending the narrow streets to Pigalle, and watching one of the liveliest quarters of the world?

For us that was the whole program, but for who wants something else.

All other kind of programs are available and openly offered.

Montmartre Sacre Coeur: Montmartre

I recently stayed with Feels Like Home in Paris in a beautiful apartment located just beside Scare Coeur. My favorite thing to do in Paris was to grab a picnic and head up to the steps of Sacre Coeur and sit amongst throngs of other people enjoying the amazing views. The whole vibe is amazing with everyone laughing and chatting, some singing (not always in tune!) along to the many musicians who like to hang out there.
Its a great place to relax and enjoy after a hard day of sight seeing!:)

Dress Code No dress code! Wear what ever you like!

Au Baroudeur: A stop "Place des Abbesses"

Very well located, just at the bottom of the "Butte Montmartre", Au Baroudeur offers great cocktails (taste the irish coffee...humm...) and comfortable sofas or sits. Just relax, while smoking a cigar or a cigarette !

Montmartre & Pigalle: disappointed with drunk people and rubbish

I went up to the Sacre Coeur at night thinking it might be romantic and beautiful, having seen the church lit up in the distance from my hotel, and I found the grassy areas around the base of it were covered with a lot of people lying around with boxes of beer getting drunk, and with empty bottles and other rubbish thrown all over the place. It looked a complete mess and I felt like the atmosphere was quite rowdy, slightly threatening and depressing. I went back during the day and it was much better and I was amazed how well they had managed to clear up, until I saw an ornamental pool which had a huge pile of rubbish in it, that had been overlooked. The view is good and the building itself is impressive, but I wouldn't particularly advise going up at night unless you are also in the mood to get drunk with a group or friends, in which case maybe it will seem different to you. I found the Pigalle area a night a bit depressingly seedy and got insulted by a lout outside a club because I didn't want to take his business card. I guess it might be different though if you are with a group - I was just taking in the sights on my own.

Montmartre & Pigalle: Montmartre

In redesigning Paris, Haussmann pushed many residents to areas such as Montmartre on the outskirts of the city. At this time, Montmartre was officially outside of the city and was free of taxes. This meant alcohol was cheaper here than in Paris itself. Montmartre became the place for nighttime entertainment in Paris which still continues today.

Montmartre - Steps under Sacre Couer: The steps under Sacre Coeur

The steps just under the Sacre Coeur are polulated by tourists suring the day...when the sun goes down, the place is taken over by the young locals who go there to drink, talk with friends, play music and sing.

Very authentic and relaxing "nightspot". The only warning: be very careful with the pickpockets! They tend to think that drunk tourists on the steps are easy targets...one of them just sat right beside me after talking to his mate...it was very strange...I just moved over and sure enough, he left as well very soon...

Dress Code Very casual

Montmartre & Pigalle...: Montmartre Areas...

My last night photo around Paris or rather in the Montmartre Area...
Taken near our hotel....everything was so quiet & peaceful with the occasional sounds of vehicles like cars & bikes...& sometimes people shouting !
I like it very much....
Slowly, we went up the room & slept right away ! Early morning train back to London the following morning & an early evening flight back to Malaysia, also tomorrow !
A successful night excursion for me !

Montmartre & Pigalle...: Montmartre Areas...

Hhmm, what do we have here ? Sex shops, lingerie shops...all the French kinkyness that you would expect, seeing is believing !
No, I didn't go in...
Notice the apartments at the top of those shops ? I'm sure there are many scandals happening in those rooms ! Those windows are the witnesses !

Montmartre & Pigalle...: Montmartre Areas...

A fun area there ! A night spot area...Pigalle, this name I knew for a long time ! Edith Piaf (no, I'm not that old !) had a song on this place !
In the last century, in the 40's & 50's this area was the 'happening' area in Paris !
By the way, Moulin Rouge is also nearby...
