Rue Scribe

This street honours Eugène Scribe (1791-1861), who directed the Théâtre Comique Français from 1820-50. At n° 2, the Grand Hôtel (nowadays the Intercontinental), was built in 1862 for the 1867 World Exhibition on the initiative of the Pereire brothers. The rotunda crowning the "Opéra" lounge has retained its original feel and is particularly interesting.
