At the foot of the Butte Montmartre, the Pigalle/Saint Georges district has been one of the hottest areas of the capital for more than a century. The Divan Japonais, one of the first strip clubs, has been there since 1880. A decade later, the legendary Moulin Rouge opened its doors. The district was then frequented by famous artists, such as Toulouse Lautrec, Van Gogh, Picasso, Dali, and others. Over the years, the streets have welcomed brothels, pornographic cinemas, and strip clubs. Although the venues have lost some of their sparkle, Rue Pigalle is still dedicated to pleasure. Day and night, sex shops sit side by side with charming establishments. Solicitors call out to passers-by and promise them a few moments of pleasure with a lap dance... An experience to enjoy away from the crowds. The more faint-hearted content themselves with a visit to the Musée de l'Érotisme or the Musée de la Vie Romantique.
