    Sorry but both are gone at 62 rue Pigalle. At 62bis there is possibly some 'dance' entertainment, though it tends to disappear in Pigalle.
    By the way, you can have a short glimpse of 'La Roulotte' in the 60's in the movie "Maigret à Pigalle' with Gino Cervi as Maigret.

    Talking about movies, I believe it is Eugène Weiss who appears shortly, with a hat at 1:06:25 and between Armstrong and Paul Newman at 1:07:30 in the movie 'Paris Blues' here : https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=paris+blues+film+1961&qpvt=paris+blues+film+1961&view=detail&mid=8D302B25E78BBA49F5218D302B25E78BBA49F521&rvsmid=A730D4AB8BCC70FFF295A730D4AB8BCC70FFF295&fsscr=0&FORM=VDFSRV

    In the same video (Maigret à Pigalle) at 54:26 you can even see the gates of the small street-village where Django lived (6 Avenue Frochot Paris near Pigalle where the street ends). During the years a lot of famous artists such as painters André Charles Vuillemot, Henri Guinier and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, writers like Victor Hugo and Eugène Brieux and even composers like Victor Massé and of course Django lived and worked part of their fame in that small wonderful private street.

    When Django became the (virtual?) owner of La Roulotte, the place was decorated in "soft tints" by André Rigal. In particular, some relief panels representing microspic gypsy camps, as seen from a plane, were a perfect success.

    Sorry, I was meaning Eugène Vées of course.

    'La Roulotte' was according to André Roussard in his 'Dictionnaire des Lieux de Montmartre' created by a man called Frantz le Gitan. Roussard says that Charles Trénet sang there a couple of times when he was already well-known, but he did not enjoy very much the place. Because the customers were only interested in two things : 'les filles' and 'le champagne'......... except when Django was playing.

    A "new" photo of La Roulotte in the 50's-60's. The place was apparently devoted then to other cultural activities than music.
