Rue Scribe

This street honours Eugène Scribe (1791-1861), who directed the Théâtre Comique Français from 1820-50. At n° 4, the Grand Hôtel (nowadays the Intercontinental), is a Napoleon III-style palace (1862) which welcomed leading personalities of the period. The rotunda crowning the "Opéra" lounge is particularly noteworthy.
