Total immersion in gentrified Paris
The village des Batignolles has established its style and crowd : hipster! Restaurants, hang outs and numerous bars to meet them in their natural habitat!
Don’t expect a landmark, a souvenir shop or a tourism office around. Rue de Dames (ladies street) is the heart of real Parisian district where we, Parisians, live. A mixed crowd of students, young families and old times locals happily live is this neighborhood near Place de Clichy known as the hipster Paris.
Clichy and Batignolles were 2 villages of the immediate suburbs of Paris, outside the tax border of the city and became Parisian « arrondissements » in 1860, as Paris needed to expend. As far as 15 years ago, you could tell the neighborhood was in a bad need of gentrification. Humble houses, artisans workshops, public laundries… the life of the blue collars.
Now, you can immediatly notice the atmosphere and the architecture of these late years of the 1800’s mixed with the festive mood of our days! Along the narrow sidewalks, lots of bars and small restaurants, vintage stores and small boutiques. Nothing too fancy, reasonnable prices and quality! You can’t trick the hipsters, they are too rude for it!
By the way we don’t call them hipsters in Paris but Bobos, bohemian bourgeois…
Famous for the hamburger with Foie Gras and the 3 years old Sardines cans
