Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré

Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honore

Just as high-class as Avenue Montaigne, the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré hosts the Palais de l'Elysée (residence of France's president) and many embassies and luxury boutiques, such as Chanel, Azzaro, Dolce & Gabbana, Prada and Hermès.

Located in the 8th district of Paris, the street begins at Place des Ternes, at its most western point. At this end, one finds numerous art galleries, antique shops and interior decorators. The Faubourg Saint-Honoré area extends for 2 kilometers up to Place Beauvau, site of the presidential palace. The Rue Faubourg Saint-Honoré is close to many sites and buildings that are emblematic of the city of Paris, such as Avenue des Champs-Elysées, Place de la Concorde and the famous Concorde Opera Hotel.

Already at the end of the 17th century, the Faubourg Saint-Honoré area had become home to establishments of power and wealth. Rich bankers and the well-to-do built very beautiful mansions there. At the start of the 19th century, foreign countries began to purchase these luxurious residences for their services abroad. It thus became the favorite location for embassies, with the gradual arrival of those of the United States, Canada and Japan.

Today, the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré is an ostentatious and cosmopolitan street. One can still see the official buildings of important dignitaries, as well as big-name luxury brands, famous boutiques, restaurants and cafés.
