The south-western end of the arrondissement is mainly known as a midrange to high-end shopping district named Wagram-Ternes. Large boulevards and traditional architecture gives it an elegant feel. Meanwhile, the north-eastern end – Batignolles – is very different with lots of bohemian bars and bistros bustling with local hipsters. Boulevard des Batignolles has an array of interesting shops and markets and is very well connected to the nearby transport facilities like the stations of Villers, Rome, Place de Clichy and Blanche.
The commercial district gives way to leafy calm avenues towards the outer reaches. Many luxurious townhouses along the avenues of the upper-class neighborhoods, with small hidden parks and squares are scattered throughout. One of Paris's best kept secrets, Monceau Park is perhaps the most noble and sophisticated park in the city. A centre of green in the middle of cosmopolitan Paris, the park is ideal for walks or picnics.
The arrondissement also hosts the Palais des Congrès of Paris: a large exhibition center with the largest hotel in the city: the Concorde Lafayette. The area offers a variety of eateries, and is known for having some of the finest Algerian cuisine in Paris.
