Reputation: Home to neighborhoods like Bastille and Oberkampf that are filled with hipsters and young Parisians. Nightlife is booming, but in a street alley kind of way. If you want to fit in with the urban crowd, explore little wine bars and tiny bistros on avenue Ledru Rollin and rue de Charonne. Apart from the nightlife it’s a residential and calm arrondissement and in terms of historical landmarks this is where you’ll find the Cirque d’Hiver (winter circus) and the St. Ambroise church.
Don’t miss: Église Saint-Ambroise, Musée Édith Piaf.
