Black Ghosts of Paris, Part 2

Lausanne_2011_Bud_Powell_HotelThough you’d hardly guess today, Lower Montmartre throbbed in the 1920s and 30s as the hotspot for jazz (we actually passed Woody Allen’s film set shooting part of Midnight in Paris here). Still standing witness to that riotous, decadent era is the Casino de Paris concert hall at the foot of Rue de Clichy. Here, the Jazz Kings (including Bill 'Bojangles' Robinson) jazzed up the nights for six years in the upstairs room, providing steady and well-paid employment to the dozens of expat musicians. Today you can have lunch or dinner in that same upstairs room, lit by a stained glass window and overlooking the red velvet theatre and stage where Josephine Baker performed in 1930.

Between 1832 and 1848, Hugo lived on the second floor of the former Hôtel de Rohan-Guéménee, situated in the Place des Vosges. He was 30 when he moved in with his wife and four children. By the way, it's free to get in!
