History

By its name, the Faubourg-Montmartre directly echoes the Montmartre district. Formerly a commune of extramural market garden lands, it bordered Paris and was located on the main road leading to the Montmartre Abbey. One could find in its surroundings some “follies”, these luxurious country houses where the rich bourgeois used to receive their mistresses to do “follies”. After a period of significant urbanisation under Louis XVI, the capital expanded in 1784 through the annexation of surrounding villages. During the French Revolution, the district took the name of “section du Faubourg-Montmartre”.

Cultural sites

  • Théâtre des Folies Bergère: Inaugurated in 1869, this theatre, still in activity, is registered on the list of historical monuments.

Maupassant, Manet, Charlie Chaplin, Josephine Baker and Dalida are among the many artists who passed through its doors or walked on its stage.
  • The Palace: This Art Deco style concert hall was first a cinema in 1912, then a music hall in 1923, before it was converted into a mythical nightclub in the 1970s. Finally restored in a Roaring Twenties style, it has now become a general public venue. World-famous personalities came to enjoy its festive atmosphere or to perform there. Housed in a late 18th century building that was completely renovated, this site can accommodate 970 spectators.
