About the District
The 9th arrondissement is Paris’ lesser-known cultural centre. It is home to several famous cultural landmarks, such as Garnier Opera, the Folies Bergères cabaret, Casino de Paris and Olympia concert halls, Grévin wax museum and auction house Drouot. Its central location on the Rive Droite (Right bank), between the shiny 8th, busy 2nd and trendy 10th arrondissements offers excellent transport links to the rest of the city (19 metro stations, 9 metro and 2 RER lines) while being within a short walking distance of landmarks like the Louvre and Champs-Elysées. If Chaussée d’Antin and Faubourg Montmartre neighbourhoods are busier because of tourism and because companies like Danone, Netflix, Dr. Oetker, Sony Music Entertainment, Thomson Reuters, Google and Apple have their offices located there, Saint-Georges and Rochechouard are slightly quieter despite still being very lively areas next to young and emerging 10th (with Canal Saint-Martin and la Villette areas) and 18th (famous for Pigalle and Montmartre). 9e arrondissement apartments are therefore very popular among professionals, young families and visitors and 9e corporate housing has become a clever option for those looking for central 9eme apartment rental long term and short term.
