4.0
#97 of 294 in Sightseeing in Paris
Landmark Tourist Spot
One of the oldest streets on the Left Bank, Rue de la Huchette is a narrow pedestrian passageway full of quality eateries and bars. You will love finding a place to rest your feet and grabbing a bite to eat on this picturesque street. If you’re looking for a nighttime activity, you can head here for the intense night life with no less than four pubs and many bars.

This site is also best known for its numerous Greek restaurants whose owners sometimes stand outside shattering cheap plates to attract customers. There are plenty of falafel stands and take-away joints as well.

For a bit of history, look for building 10, where Napoleon Bonaparte was said to have stayed between 1794-1795. To visit Rue de la Huchette on your trip to Paris, use our Paris vacation trip planner.

  • It begins at the small bridge of Cardinal Lustiger face Notre Dame for lead at the level of the fontaine St. Michel. It is a pedestrian street with restaurants, shops, the theatre of Huchette, piano bar Ralais of the Huchette and the famous "Caveau de la Huchette" with his jazz music. It is certainly more lively in the evening but like so many other streets in Paris. There is really nothing special... Come by metro or RER station "Saint Michel Notre Dame".

  • A tourist street that leads us to a typical romantic Paris. The street is short and full of restaurants with good menus for beginners in French cooking (like us).

  • Located on the opposite bank of the Seine River on the South side of the Ile de la Cité island was one on the South side. Into the street and turn left at the second street across from the island of Ile de la Cité Saint-Michel bridge. I feel like a movie theater was going just as right. That was theater. I'm sorry I was wrong because a faint memory. Also, faced with going further ahead without Sun Severin Church San several streets.

  • I'm a swing dancer in the states so I was all too thrilled to find this venue. We went on a Saturday night so it was jam-packed and people kept crashing into us without apologizing, but what can you do? Quality music, smiling faces. Worth the trip, but I'd probably get there earlier next time!
  • Really fun night out in Paris with my wife! Big plus: no cell service in basement which means no one is on their phone. They are enjoying the life in front of them!! Minus: bad air flow and really HoT when you're dancing! People of all ages loving their lives here. You should go!
  • As a fan of live jazz I was surprised that I had not been here. Like Le Caveau des Oubliettes, the Caveau de la Huchette is a cavernous space with great acoustics. The place does fill up and despite this being Paris, people will park themselves on the floor and take in the great music. The only reason why I didn't give this place 5 stars was the price of refreshments - 6€ for a coke and 11€ for a pint of beer. Advice, go there after hydrating.
  • Cozy basement venue for jazz and dancing. Bar upstairs with great service and drinks. Lots of different nationalities due to tourists.
  • Pretty darn cool place. Maybe a bit touristy, but what a cool spot! Bartender is a total character, who will make you speak French and then tell you "I'm sorry, I don't speak French." Uses that joke 6 times an hour. Had a ton of fun at this place.

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
