(130+ reviews on the web)
Landmark
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.

  • Very old Paris. Before Haussmann, this used to be the route south. Hard to imagine since it is such a narrow cluttered street. Now in the student quarter and the home of unimaginative cheap restaurant...  more »
  • Alley crowded with tourists, cafes, restaurants, souvenir shops. Place to eat cheap. Worth knowing.

  • Great music. Crowded but you can eventually find a seat. It is obvious there are "regulars" and we really enjoyed watching them dance. Everyone is welcome to dance. Fun night out.
  • This place was recommended by a friend, who used to live in Paris years ago. She said it was great for live music and dancing. It sure was! The band was super, dance floor full of couples swinging and jiving away and had a good amount of seating to watch the action. It's definitely worth the low cover price, so don't skip this spot on your trip!
  • Typical cave bar from the outside, but the night is filled with the energy of the crowd who is either watching in awe of the dancers, or if you are bold enough , show off your skills. Some amazing swing dancers and jazz dancers. Live band is fantastic. Couples are encouraged to dance with others . A very la Boheme vibe. Drinks are well priced . Note: there is a 15 Euro cover charge, so plan to spend a little bit of time to make it worth your while.
  • Saw this amazing jazz bar from La La Land Entrance fee is 13€ Once you enter, order a drink at the bar then go down stair to the different world It has what it takes to get 5 star Once the music starts everyone suddenly swings Great atmosphere Totally recommended
  • A fun jazz café where there is live music and lots of dancing!
