STREET/NEIGHBOURHOOD OF INTEREST

Rue de la Roquette

De la place de la Bastille au cimetière du Père Lachaise - 75011 Paris Bastille, Père-Lachaise - Ménilmontant
In the past the La Roquette district, next to the Marais and Place de la Bastille, was known only for containing two prisons: the "petite Roquette" for young delinquents and women, and the "Grande Roquette" for major criminals. The guillotine was brought out at night to bring the lives of the imprisoned to a fateful end…
Today, evenings in the Roquette district are significantly happier: trendy art galleries, countless bars and restaurants in the very popular rue de Lappe welcome a young, fun-loving, sophisticated crowd. Don't hesitate to wander one evening in these typically Parisian little streets with their busy nightlife.
