The Scene

One of the oldest streets on the Left Bank, Rue de la Huchette is a narrow pedestrian passageway full of eateries and bars that lends itself nicely to a good old-fashioned pub crawl.

One of the oldest streets on the Left Bank, Rue de la Huchette is a narrow pedestrian passageway full of eateries and bars that lends itself nicely to a good old-fashioned pub crawl.

Although Huchette is best known for its numerous Greek restaurants whose owners sometimes stand outside shattering plates to attract customers, there are also plenty of watering holes interspersed with the falafel stands and take-away joints.

Lining the vibrant and bustling street are literally dozens of drinking dens – many housed in ancient stone-encased structures containing underground cave bars and dance floors – making it easy to hop from place to place.

And adding to the melting-pot mix is a good selection of Asian, Eastern European, and Spanish bars and restaurants, all of which perfectly suit the international crowd that descends on the street each night.

The fact that there is little difference between the multitude of venues – and that most of them have drink specials in a shared Happy Hour – means a night on the Huchette often feels like a casual neighborhood party as talkative groups move from one bar to the next.

great for bar-hopping

Rue de la Huchette blends in my mind with Boulevard St.-Michel because the international, student-y vibe which carries all the way from the Sorbonne up to Notre Dame. There are always a collection of ethnicities and cultures both walking down the street and in the establishments themselves, which really speaks to the diversity of Parisian locals and tourists and their tastes. Walking down this street offers almost too much choice, but you can’t go wrong with a Greek gyro in this part of town, or with the wine choices at the many Spanish bars.
