Becoming increasingly chic, a number of original, independent fast-food restaurants have opened there, as well as bars with talented DJs and well-trained cocktail waiters, who are sure to provide  excellent evening entertainment. Barbès, the more family-friendly, yet no less cosmopolitan, side of Pigalle is full to bursting with culinary havens where African spices meet Asian zests to offer a huge and unique choice.
