Monsieur Aristide shares his secret addresses and hidden spots with his friends. His team of passionate artists – including a designer and a cabaret singer – is careful to ensure that each traveler discovers Paris like a Parisian. Whether you are a fan of the classic tours: from the Place du Tertre to the Sacré Coeur, via the Moulin Rouge, or an adventurer of the Montmartre nights.
The ambles of Monsieur Aristide
With scarf in the wind, Monsieur Aristide strolls in the alleys of the hills. From rue des Abbesses, he reaches rue Ravignan, for one of the most beautiful viewpoints over Paris. After a coffee and a croissant on the terrace of the bar Relais de la Butte or Café des Deux Moulins, he continues his promenade on the heights of the city. He has his portrait drawn on the Place du Tertre. Then, escaping by rue Poulbot, Monsieur goes to Clos Montmartre where he tastes the latest vintage from the only vineyard in Paris. He enjoys art house films from Studio 28, a small pocket cinema whose décor was created by Cocteau.

The Sacré Coeur is located at the highest point of Paris (130 meters) on the hill of Montmartre. It can be reached by a funicular or by taking the large staircase. At the foot of the basilica, the panorama is unique and offers a breathtaking view of the old quarters of Paris.

The day after a well-watered party, Monsieur Aristide and the regulars of the hills meet at La Mascotte over a dozen oysters and a glass of Muscadet.

Where Monsieur Aristide goes to live it up
As life would be sad without music, Monsieur Aristide made sure to be close to quintessential concert halls like La Cigale. Or the Divan du Monde for its drag cabaret shows and DJ sets of French songs. One could equally head to the Petit Théâtre du Bonheur to discover new, local artists who come there to perform improvisations. A night owl, Monsieur Aristide walks the streets of his neighborhood like a fine connoisseur. After a detour to Lulu White on rue Frochot, he likes the lively and friendly atmosphere of La Fourmi or Le Sans Souci, where each neighbor is a friend. If the evening turns to wandering about, he pushes the doors of Chez Moune or the Folies Pigalle before accompanying the night to sleep.
At La Cigale, a listed historic monument since 1981 and redesigned by Philippe Starck, artists avant-garde or confirmed artists sing. This dinner-theather has had a long and fascinating history. Once a cabaret, then a popular cinema and finally a concert hall, the Cigale now offers a program alternating between avant-garde artists and pop rock singers.
Today a reference room for its technique, its reception, its decoration, its exposition, its conviviality, its atmosphere, its bar, its garden, its savory and sweet pies. Your neighbourhood hall! Very small cinema with a set designed by Cocteau. Screening of art house films and regular events.
Address: 10 rue Tholozé, 75018 Paris
Le Petit théâtre du bonheur
This theater nestled along the stairs leading to the Sacré-Coeur of Montmartre is undoubtedly one of the smallest of the capital, and for good reason: only a dozen people can sit in this dinner-theater which is far from everything we know in Paris. Concerts by local artists, theatrical improvisations and storytelling in an intimate and warm room.
