The rue de l'Odéon is a street in the Odéon quarter of the 6th arrondissement of Paris on the Left Bank. Because of the presence of two bohemian bookstores, and the coterie of emergent Anglophone writers surrounding them, James James nicknamed it "Stratford-on-Odéon".


This street was constructed from 1780 onwards following letter patent of 10 August 1779 to establish the Théâtre-Français du faubourg Saint-Germain (now the Odéon-Théâtre de l'Europe).
