The 9th arrondissement (IXe arrondissement), located on the Right Bank, is one of the 20 arrondissements of Paris, France. It contains many places of cultural, historical, and architectural interest, including the Palais Garnier, home to the Paris Opera, Boulevard Haussmann and its large department stores of Galeries Lafayette and Printemps. Along with the 2nd and 8th arrondissements, it hosts one of the business centers of Paris, located around the Opéra.
While most people descending the metro just north of the 9th arrondissement would be likely heading towards Montmartre, those in the know, head to SoPi (South of Pigalle), to enjoy the many restaurants, bars and cafés the district has to offer. This is a young and vibrant part of the city with rue des Martyrs being one of its most famous points of entry. This is a foodies delight with the likes of Popelinis, Rose Bakery, Braisenville, Le Pantruche & Les Canailles to name a few, calling it home. Countless articles have been written about what's hip new and happening including The Guardian's Paris Travel Guide: A Day in South Pigalle - "South Pigalle, once a quieter corner of Paris, has picked up a new nickname, SoPi, and gone all BoBo (bourgeois bohemian) as a slew of stylish restaurants, bars and shops open in the area"
The land area of this arrondissement is 2.179 km2 (0.841 sq. miles, or 538 acres).
