Rue de Bourgogne is a road in the Invalides neighbourhood in Paris' 7th arrondissement. It starts at Place du Palais Bourbon and ends at Rue de Varenne. It owes its name to the Duke of Burgundy, King Louis XIV's grandson. A judgement of the King's Council officially ordered the road to be opened on 23 August 1707.
It epitomises a certain French art de vivre, like the rest of the 7th arrondissement, and is lined with decoration boutiques and sophisticated restaurants like "Tante Marguerite" next to the National Assembly.
Famous brasseries are not lacking in this neighbourhood, especially on Rue Saint-Dominique and Rue Bellechasse,
