The Rue du Louvre is one of the most useful streets to know in Paris for many reasons, and also because you will find a 1 star michelin french-japanese restaurant in one of the adjacent streets, Rue du Coq Héron (see the KEI article).
So, the Rue du Louvre is a street which starts at the crossroads between Le Louvre and Rue de Rivoli, in the first district, and ends when it arrives at Rue Montmartre, in the second district of Paris. Of course, the first reason to know this really nice street is that it is located at the extreme east of the Louvre Museum, and just two minutes from the oldest bridge in Paris, le Pont Neuf, where you can take the flying boats.
When you go north, you will find la Bourse de Commerce (or trade exchange) which is the place you have to go if you want to become an entrepreneur in Paris and is a former corn exchange rebuilt after 1850. Passing the Viarmes street, you arrive at the end of Les Halles and you can still visit the St Eustache Church, and walk through la Rue du Jour, where you’ll find very trendy shops, like Agnès B or La Droguerie.
After passing the KEI restaurant, you’ll find the one and only post office which is open 24/7 in Paris. And finally, if you turn left when you cross Rue Etienne Marcel, you will find one of the nicest spots in Paris, La Place des Victoires.
