Avenue Montaigne

Avenue Montaigne (French: [avəny mɔ̃tɛɲ]) is a street in the 8th arrondissement of Paris, France

Avenue Montaigne was originally called the allée des Veuves (widows' alley) because women in mourning gathered there, but the street has changed much since those days of the early 18th century. The present name comes from Michel de Montaigne, a writer of the French Renaissance. In the nineteenth century, the street earned some renown for its sparkling and colourful Bal Mabille (Mabille Gardens) on Saturday nights.
