A Parisian boutique hotel pays tribute to its namesake red light district's past

The seedy clubs and brothels of Paris’s red light district, Pigalle, have shuttered in recent years, ushering in a new era for neighborhood. In their place, a slew of stylish cocktail bars, restaurants, and hotels have sprouted. Le Pigalle, housed in a 19th-century neoclassical building, fits into that mold, and like many of the new projects responsible for the gentrification, it weaves the area’s history into its story. Through a series of collaborations with local artists and firms, the owners ensured the spirit of the hotel would resonate with its surroundings. Paris-based architects Charlotte de Tonnac and Hugo Sauzay infused the design with colorful references: terrazzo flooring inspired by local bars, leopard and oxblood accents in the elevators, and a vintage Wurlitzer jukebox discovered during the renovation. The 40 rooms have Nouvelle Athènes-style chairs chosen by a seasoned furniture hunter, and walls adorned with photographs, cartoons, and paintings that evoke the neighborhood. The staff’s streetwear uniforms are the work of a local dressmaker, while a nearby bookstore was brought in to provide the selection of books and the lobby’s magazine collection is maintained by a neighboring news kiosk owner. The hotel even has its own beer, courtesy of Parisian micro-brewery Goutte d’Or, which is served at night during DJ sets and performances by a dedicated, skilled pole dancer. Proof that even as Pigalle gets a new polish, it’s still retaining some of its edge.
