Le Monocle was a well-known lesbian bar located in Montmartre from the 1920s to the early 1940s.
It was opened by Lulu de Montparnasse. At the time, Montmartre was the main gathering place for Parisian lesbians who were often seen at Montmartre’s outdoor cafes or dancing at the Moulin Rouge. Le Monocle’s scene was described by Florence Tamagne thus: “All the women there dressed as men, in Tuxedos, and wore their hair in a bob.”  
The name Le Monocle derived from a fad at the time where women who identified as lesbian would sport a monocle to indicate sexual preference. The writer Colette once observed the fad by describing women in the area as “often affecting a monocle and a white carnation in the buttonhole.”

#I would like this fashion fad to return please

#ditto to the max
