At the bottom of the Butte Montmartre and extending out to the Gare de l’Est, this neighborhood is the non-stop part of Paris. There’s no beating around the bush, Pigalle is best known for its nightclubs and sex shops. The famous Moulin Rouge with its neon lights and red windmill is the neighborhood landmark. But it’s not all adult-only entertainment here. At Bonne Nouvelle, Europe’s largest cinema, the art-deco Grand Rex, offers fun for the whole family showing movies in its enormous auditorium. The area’s also full of cozy coffee shops and quieter corners for those in need of a break.
