A neighbourhood Hotel


Mythical and imposing, languid and frenetic, Pigalle is a neon light in the Parisian night. The neighbourhood has always attracted thugs and artists, musicians and adventurers. With neither a monument nor a meeting point, it lacked a spot that really reflected its tawdry values, brazen spirit and musical energy. And so, Le Pigalle was born. An authentic neighbourhood hotel, whose history was shaped by the cultural mix that swirls on the southern slopes of Montmartre.

The team is local and will take you to meet some of the places, people and stories that bring Pigalle alive and make Paris so vibrant. The croissants are provided by the nearby bakery, the books selected by the local bookstore and the music chosen by a neighbourhood DJ who also is an album collector and happens to be born in Pigalle. Local artists, shopkeepers and restaurant owners, they all have something to say about their neighbourhood. 

You can meet up for a drink, a night (out), or a coffee. This is Pigalle!

About the Pigalle area

"You don’t visit Pigalle. There is nothing to see. It’s a neighborhood like any other. A few more bars, a few less monuments and a vibrant reputation. You don’t show Pigalle to the tourists. You want to show them the soul of Pigalle. And the soul is invisible. It has a smell. You merely begin to grasp what it can be after two weeks of dawns, nights and sunsets." 


Newspaper seller, photographer, baker, mixologist, vintage furniture expert: meet some of the talented people we’re collaborating with. Each has deep local roots, and each is playing a part in the symphony of creativity that is Le Pigalle, a subjective but authentic vision of a unique neighborhood.

The basement

A vestige of days gone by, the jukebox at Le Pigalle was unearthed during the renovation work. It has since been amped up by Victor Kiswell, who has endowed it with his top playlist selection. The system now sits in the basement, allowing anyone to browse the collection and choose their favourite tune. A whole new "underground" music scene awaits!

It will be music to your ears.
Come in, tune in, chill out.
Musical heaven.

The groundfloor

The groundfloor is a passionate distillation of everything that makes Pigalle such a special place. In a setting that’s both gloriously vintage and utterly contemporary, it embodies the spirit of collaboration that underlies this hotel – it is also a meeting place for the team of artists and designers whose job it is to recreate the essence of the neighbourhood.

It has a café, bar and restaurant, a vinyl record library, and a newspaper and book kiosk, all run by the colourful characters who make Pigalle what it is. There are parties, DJ sets and table dancing, providing guests with a foretaste of what they can expect as they explore the uncharted jungle that is Paris.

Some come from the other side of the world, others from just around the corner. But no one comes to Le Pigalle just to sleep: they come to eat, dance, listen to music, make new friends and much more besides!
