l'hôtel brighton la rue du faubourg saint-honoré

At the heart of the prestigious 8th arrondissement, the Faubourg Saint-Honoré district brings together a large number of boutiques symbolising luxury and French refinement, side by side with embassies, the presidential palace and art galleries

 

The greatest luxury boutiques, between power and diplomacy

At the heart of the 8th arrondissement, 10 minutes on foot from the Hôtel Brighton, this is one of the most luxurious streets in the capital, considered as the ultimate shopping destination. Parallel with the Champs-Elysées, Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré crosses Paris from Rue Royale, at Place de la Concorde, to Place des Ternes, near Place Charles de Gaulle Etoile, over a distance of 2km.

At n° 55 stands the Elysée Palace, the official residence and offices of the President of France. Formerly the Hôtel d’Evreux, it was extended by the Marquise de Pompadour, who made it her own property. Opposite the Elysée Palace is the Ministry of the Interior. The street is also the home of embassies such as the United States embassy at n° 41 and the United Kingdom embassy at n° 39. The Bristol Palace Hotel is also in this street.

Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré is known, too, for its prestigious art galleries such as the Art Comparaison gallery or the Rothschild Foundation at the corner of Rue Berryer, dedicated to the graphic and plastic arts. The street is, of course, famous for its haute-couture and luxury stories such as Yves Saint Laurent at n° 38, Dior at 46, Hermès at n° 24, Gaultier at n° 30 and Chanel at n° 21. If you carry on walking towards Place Vendôme and Rue de la Paix, other major luxury brands, for jewellery this time, are well worth a visit during your stay at the Hôtel Brighton.

 

The Faubourg Saint-Honoré Committee

Founded in 1902, this committee's aim is to preserve the district's heritage. It unites a range of skills and businesses, from fashion to jewellery via hotels and art galleries. In 1964, the street was twinned with Fifth Avenue in New York after a campaign by the committee. In 2012 the committee set up Summer and Winter Time to introduce a street that is the epitome of luxury to visitors.
