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 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 exiting the metro north of the 9th arrondissement likely head towards Montmartre, others 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. The area attracts sophisticated eaters to establishments such as Popelinis, Rose Bakery, Braisenville, Le Pantruche & Les Canailles. Many articles have been written about what's hip new and happening including yhe 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"[1]

¹This group is made up largely of former French settlers, such as pieds-noirs in Northwest Africa, followed by former colonial citizens who had French citizenship at birth (such as was often the case for the native elite in French colonies), and to a lesser extent foreign-born children of French expatriates. Note that a foreign country is understood as a country not part of France in 1999, so a person born for example in 1950 in Algeria, when Algeria was an integral part of France, is nonetheless listed as a person born in a foreign country in French statistics.
²An immigrant is a person born in a foreign country not having French citizenship at birth. Note that an immigrant may have acquired French citizenship since moving to France, but is still considered an immigrant in French statistics. On the other hand, persons born in France with foreign citizenship (the children of immigrants) are not listed as immigrants.
