Stylish Pigalle sty


Steps from Sacré-Coeur

Pigalle has been rewarding hardcore revellers for more than a century now and the good times keep rolling at Hôtel Rochechouart, an art deco escape for artists and absinthe lovers, established in 1929 and now part of Orso Hotels. Melodrama awaits up on the roof, the proud owner of one of the best views in Paris – and precisely where you can pretend you’re Ewan McGregor and Nicole Kidman (no singing necessary). Some of the rooms may as well be artist garrets, where the Sacré-Coeur is visible from the bed, and when you are ready to venture out, can-cans, cabaret and cocktails are on hand to keep you up all night.

Our favourite rooms

For the most glamorous garret in Pigalle, go for an Classique room with a sloping ceiling on the top floor – tortured types will especially enjoy the melodrama of staring out at the Sacré Cœur from bed.

Packing tips

Velvet, lace, a predilection for absinthe and an ability to stay up all night.


If you thought the bath products smelt amazing, it’s because they’re made especially for the hotel in Grasse, the world’s undisputed perfume capital.


Pooches welcome. Dogs pillows and water bowls to all rooms and suites. See more pet-friendly hotels in Paris.

Food and Drink

Top Table

Hide out at the tables at the side of the bar for the most seclusion, people-watch from the corner or gather some friends and squeeze into a group-size banquette.

Dress Code

Ladies (and gents) of the night.

Hotel restaurant

Fittingly for a quartier known for its nightlife, Hôtel Rochechouart gives you an excellent (and so-French) restaurant that you won’t even have to leave the front door for. And you might not have left the building, but it’ll feel like you’ve stepped onto an ocean liner as you settle into a tan banquette for a dinner of classic seafood and steaks. A buffet breakfast is served here each morning, or you can order a smaller selection up to your room. 

Hotel bar

The Pigalle party might be raging down below, but an excellent evening could consist of sundowners, including the signature Maggie cocktail (Nikka Coffey Gin, hibiscus, bergamot, lemon, chilli and aquafaba), in sight of the Sacré-Coeur up on the roof, before descending for a meal at Rochechouart and heading straight back up again. Maggie Rooftop bar opens every evening for drinks with a 360-degree view of Paris.

Last orders

Breakfast hours are 7am to 10am, and dinner is served between 7.15pm and 11pm (the restaurant is closed for lunch). The rooftop bar’s hours are from 5pm to 11pm.

Room service

Dinner can be ordered to your room between 7pm and 11pm.

Hôtel Rochechouart
55 Boulevard de Rochechouart

The hotel is in the Parisian district of Pigalle, close to the can-cans and cabarets of the city’s naughtiest nightlife and the world’s most famous windmill.


Both of the French capital’s main airports are within 30 kilometres of the hotel – the drive should take between 30 and 45 minutes. Hotel-arranged transfers cost from €35.


Eurostar-disembarking arrivals will be able to reach the hotel within a 15-minute walk, with €20 transfers available for those who don’t do luggage. The quarter’s Pigalle Metro stop is a few minutes away on foot.


You’d need to be brave to take on the Parisian traffic – stash your wheels away at the public car park, 500 metres down the Boulevard de Rochechouart.

Worth getting out of bed for

Paris is no stranger to tourist-tickbox sites, but you won’t have to go very far to see them here – instead of trampling around at ground level like everyone else, spy them from the comfort of the hotel’s romantic rooftop (with added cocktail potential). Pigalle is one of the city’s most happening ’hoods, with livelier-than-even-the-late-19th-century (and a whole lot more sanitised) nightlife, effortlessly cool (in the way only French people can be) cocktail bars and, of course, can-cans and cabarets. Don’t miss strolls to the Sacré-Coeur and the rest of artist-approved Montmartre.

Local restaurants

As long as it’s not the weekend, Le Pantruche will serve up French bistro favourites; Buvette, meanwhile, will feed you any day of the week, from your morning espresso all the way to evening espresso martinis – the SoPi (South Pigalle) institution has Francophile-pleasing siblings everywhere from NYC to Tokyo. 

Local bars

Dirty Dick on Rue Frochot is officially one of the world’s 50 best bars – it’s near the Moulin Rouge and mixes up a tropical Parisian take on tiki. Don’t expect anything as mundane as a glass: the cocktails are served in artist-designed ‘bespoke vessels’. Yago on Rue Victor Massé may look like someone’s house from the outside and a bordello from the inside, but it’s a great spot for cocktails and Nikkei cuisine. And if you thought Pigalle couldn’t get any rowdier, you clearly haven’t been to Sister Midnight, which has nothing to do with nuns and everything to do with glam rock, drag nights and burlesque.

Anonymous review

By Rosie Birkett, A lot on her plate

Anyone reading this (and indeed, all of our friends) will think it is slightly foolish to attempt a hotel stay in Paris with a feisty one-year-old in tow. But, while I was pregnant, I was hooked on the book Bringing Up Bébé, an American journalist’s hilarious account of having babies in Paris. And then we just happened to give our own bébé a French name.

So of course it follows that she must be taken to France as many times as we can muster before the restrictions and hiked charges of the school holidays inevitably become a bore… [READ THE FULL REVIEW]
