Père Lachaise – Ménilmontant is a northeast Paris neighborhood that doesn’t dress to impress. Instead, its allure resides in its local core—family owned brasseries and shops fill the neighborhood’s main avenues. Its statements are subtle, and they often escape into the air outside its music clubs and cagey nightlife destinations. Père Lachaise – Ménilmontant’s sonic roots run deep—it’s home to the world famous cemetery where musical legends like Jim Morrison and Edith Piaf rest.See places to stay Save this neighborhood
Endearing Edginess In Northeast Paris
Very cosmopolitan area, less touristy than the rest of the capital. It turns out to be busy and vibrant in the evenings."
An Artistic Touch
It's a great neighborhood, very close [...] to beautiful and lesser known parts of the city such as "La Campagne à Paris" -- a cobblestone streets with individual houses from the beginning of the 20th century -- or "Village de Charonne" -- an authentic old neighbourhood that recalls what the villages around Paris used to be in the 19th century!"

A parisian friend stopped by and was amazed at the location, saying that [it] was one of the most amazing neighborhoods in the city, one of the few places that had a life without being touristy. I agree."
