At the Arvor Hotel, we offer you many services to make sure you have the best time possible in this charming area, only 5 minutes from the Pigalle metro station.

South Pigalle : a mythical district
Also nicknamed SoPi, for South Pigalle, this name refers geographically to the area south of Place Pigalle. In the past, it was the red light district of Paris, with many bars and cabarets, and a rather modest population. Today, Pigalle is a district as famous as the Marais, attracting a “hype” and “trendy” population. Arvor is the refined luxury, the refuge of calmness, and the modernity of a hotel in the heart of South Pigalle, a lively district.
SoPi, also referred to as the hipster district, has become a must-see place. You can choose to walk in the main road: the street of the Martyrs. It is a very lively street where many restaurants, bars, cheesemongers, cafes, etc. have been established. It is also called the street of the single product, because many stores are specialized in the production and sales of a single product: they are true specialists. For a rural break, you can go for a walk on avenue Frochot, which shelters fabulous houses. Visit the Museum of Romantic Life to learn more about George Sand and Ary Scheffer. Or discover the new concept stores that are gradually being set up.
South Pigalle remains an authentic neighbourhood, and if you’re looking for a typically French café, we recommend the Sans Souci, the Lautrec, or Chez Bouboule (to try your hand at pétanque in the comfort of a brasserie).
