Bastille

Ever since that momentus revolutionary destruction of a prison (even though there were only seven inmates at the time), the Bastille neighborhood has carried a naughty reputation. It subsequently became a hot spot for dance halls, brothels, and other unruly establishments. What remains today is an extraodinarly diverse and constantly changing neighborhood with all imaginable forms of commerce and culture.
