The European home of Hot Jazz and Josephine Baker, 1920s Paris was remembered fondly by Woody Allen in his film “Midnight in Paris.” The coolest hot spot was of course the 18th district, Montmartre. Causally known as the artist’s district many well-known artists including Salvador Dalí, Amedeo Modigliani, and Pablo Picasso once called it home.
