Highs & Lows

  • Every aspect of the hotel is locally sourced. The art direction of the fun logos and typography, the furniture hunter, the art, the musicologist, even the bread and flowers are from the hood.

  • For me music makes or breaks a place. It’s so satisfying to know how much thought has been put into it at Le Pigalle. Just look at the “radio” section on their website. I’m in love.

  • The lobby has such a great atmosphere. People really can relax and spend time hanging out there without any snooty Parisian attitudes thrown at them. Free wifi for all too.

  • I geek out on little design details. My favourite was the room key, which looked like some random persons car key. You know you’re an insider from the moment of check-in.

  • You can’t steal shit. Everything is on the menu with a crazy price attached.

Yoga might be sexual enough.

I get it, if pole dancing isn’t for you (like me)
