Hôtel de Sourdéac. René de Rieux, évêque et comte de Léon, fait construire sous Louis XIII par l'architecte Adam Robelin un hôtel à l'admirable façade, qu'il cède en 1651 à son neveu Alexandre de Rieux, marquis de Sourdéac. Parmi ses différents occupants, citons Françoise de Paris, épouse d'un président au Parlement, si éprise de théâtre qu'elle donnait des représentations dans la cour. L'actrice Adrienne Lecouvreur, dont la mère demeurait rue Servandoni, y fait ses débuts en 1717. Après les confiscations révolutionnaires, la mairie du 11ème arrondissement d'alors s'y établit de 1819 à 1850. Henri Plon (1806-1872) reprend l'hôtel en 1854 pour y installer le siège de sa maison d'édition, et en faire sa résidence familiale, actuellement occupée par les Presses de la Cité.

The Watch Maker The name of these licensed premises recalls the watchmaking trade that flourished in Prescot during the 18th and 19th centuries. The town enjoyed a world-wide reputation for the quality of its craftmanship. The premises are a former supermarket and a shop, part of a block built in the late 1960s, which replaced a long-standing row of shops that included a butcher, baker and ironmongery store. These premises were refurbished by JD Wetherspoon in December 2011.
