Appart'Hotel in Madeleine
Paris so chic
The Grands Boulevards district is that of the ancient suburbs. Faubourg Montmartre, Poissonière and Saint Denis, these thoroughfares have known since the french revolution the fever of celebration and live performance. At nightfall this commercial heart of Paris beats to the rythm of the first popular balls and café concerts. This old peripheral district has seen many artists give it its color: from Frédéric Chopin who gave its first parisian concert there, Art Blakey inaugurated 150 years later the New Morning Club to Laurent Garnier who made the Rex Club one of the temples of electronic culture...
Rue Royale connects two of the city’s most famous squares: Place de la Concorde, where King Louis XVI lost his head in 1793, now proudly surveyed by the Luxor Obelisk, and Place de la Madeleine. Mary Magdalene was almost denied her magnificent church: Napoleon wanted to turn the unfinished building into a temple to the glory of France and the Grande Armée, but some argued for a bank or a courthouse instead. While the debate rumbled on, it was put to good use and let to a wine merchant. Eventually the church got built, and La Madeleine is now the stage for state ceremonies and funerals. Chopin, Edith Piaf, Coco Chanel are Marlene Dietrich were all mourned here; more recently, the funeral of Johnny Halliday drew in a crowd almost a million strong. But keep your wits about you: living legends, too, are fond of this part of town. It was at 1 Rue Royale where Benjamin Franklin signed the treaty declaring France the first country to recognise the independence of the United States of America, one wintery day in 1778.
