When I visited in January 2013 however they still existed including one almost opposite.
Porte Saint-Denis, adult shops, a beggar, mc Brides prostitutes in bahrain cost Irish Pub, paris.It's pretty obvious that many of these people are in genuine need but remember a lot of beggars are no better than thieves.There are very visible signs of desperation here and often you see homeless alcoholics asleep in the middle of busy pavements during the daytime.In the evening pretty girls and touts will try to entice people.Rating is available when the video has been rented.This feature is not available right now.Bookers can't see them that well but they are there.They will fain disability and tell lies about their hardship.The next photo shows a group of adult shops.Here you will see several adult shops and clubs.This 25m high triumphal arch was inspired by the Arch of Titus in Rome and lies at the top of Rue Saint-Denis.Mainstream Attractions, eiffel Tower, notre Dame, arc de Triomphe.Red Light Districts, boulevard de Clichy, rue Saint-Denis.The first photo right shows the Porte Saint-Denis.
As you go further south there are more and more nice restaurants, fashion shops and bars and the adult element slowly dissapears.
You can see the location.

I cannot say they are all rip-off joints but when they use the word "club" and you see pretty girls hanging around (as in this photo) they should be avoided.
