Place de la Bastille is one of the main attractions in the 11th Arrondissement. Another is the Opera Bastille. There are many cafes and various eateries around as well as other types of stores. Worth visiting.

We stayed in the edgy 11th arrondissement during a visit to Paris in September 2017. It was a great experience, in part because we stayed in an apartment rather than in a hotel; in part because of the great location (between Place de la Bastille and Place de la Nation and incorporating Cimetiere du Pere Lachaise); and in part because of the diversity of the district. It is predominantly residential, with some streets more gentrified and some less so or not at all. There are boulangeries everywhere, a great street market and both traditional and more health conscious groceries. Restaurants in the district range from classic bistrots, to the Michelin celebrated, to innovative, fusion and ethnic and fast food establishments operating side by side on such great streets as rue Paul Bert The area is served by multiple metro lines and an RER connection. As temporary residents of the 11th arrondissement, we felt that we were getting a more vivid sense of life in Paris than we did previously as tourists staying in hotels in more touristy areas.

We stayed along the Rue de Charonne. Loads of choice for restaurants at reasonable prices. Lots of shopping nearby too. Does get noisy at night though, earplugs are advisable.
Be careful where you eat and drink on the Place de Bastille though, we had a nice breakfast at one cafe in the morning, and in the evening at another cafe across the street one coffee cost more than our breakfast lol. Nearly 8 euros for a cappuccino you have been warned

We rented an apartment near the Republique Metro stop. While I initially wasn't sure about the area, it turned out to be ideal. Republique metro stop has 5 lines and so it was easy to get to everything in 15-20 min, including out to the Marmottan Monet museum in the 16th Arrondissement. The neighborhood was safe. While we were there, there were protests every night at the Republique, but these were peaceful and of the "Occupy Wall Street" sentiment. Lots of police around so I always felt safe. If you do stay here, would try for a side street location as it can be noisy near Republique metro. There are a fair number of cafes, boulangeries, and markets in the area frequented by locals. I felt like I was getting a sense of how locals live and work and didn't see too many tourists.

We stayed in a flat on the second floor for 2 weeks over the Christmas and New Years weeks. This was a great location close to transit, pubs, bistros, food markets, pastry shops, wine stores, and fresh food markets. A real neighborhood feel with locals. Really felt like we were part of Paris life.

I've rented apartments in this area twice and dearly loved staying here. Full of lively streets, a great street market on Blvd. Richard Lenoir, lots of cafes and restaurants, full of young people. Come and see where the Parisians hang out. Still very close in to the Marais and other areas of monuments and museums. Very safe.

I only stumbled upon the 11th arrondissement as my hotel was there. But the area is fine for a stroll and shows how normal Parisians live. I was very near Place Leon Blum with metro, supermarket, bars, restaurants, etc. I discovered the Saint Ambroise church while walking around.

I have spent many holidays/weekends at an apartment we rent at the Bastille. There are some lovely bars/restaurants for the older set and some great clubs and bars on the Rue de Lappe for the younger! There is a great Sundaymarket, Aligre Market, food and antiques, near to one of my favourite pubs The Baron Rouge. To me it seems close to everywhere you would like to go within walking distance and a Metro station if you can't walk far. Great area to stay.

Several neighborhoods in the 11th are full of bars and restaurants with terraces attracting the hipsters who spend hours sitting drinking a smoking. Come and feel the vibe. Also explore the old alleys where the artisans used to have live/work spaces, now full of cool hip apartments. Lots of history here.

The area near the Bastille monument is full of opportunities to experience the ‘real side’ of Paris.
The Richard-Lenoir Marché on Wednesdays and Saturdays is a signature attraction, where you can graze on local treats at very reasonable prices while ‘people-watching’ the locals and the tourists.
Excellent affordable Cafés and Bistros abound.
Remnants of the old prison are to be found and seen.
Don’t miss this area.
