I usually stay with my sister when I go to Paris but last week I spent one night with my friend Catherine at the Grand Pigalle Hotel.
I hadn’t spent some time in Pigalle since I moved to London 19 years ago so needless to say that the area had changed a lot. South Pigalle (now called SoPi by hipsters) is a great district that has a lot to offer.
So if you’re looking to spend a few days in Paris or feel like trying a district you’ve never been before, I have created a handy Jauntful map for you with all my favourite addresses in South Pigalle (see below) including cool fashion and second-hand shops, design shops and places to drink, eat and sleep. You can also download my guide as a pdf here.
