Passage du Havre is an old shopping arcade in the centre of Paris. Formerly geared towards fish shops and railway modelling (Hornby, La Maison du Train), the arcade was rebuilt in the late 1990s as a modern mall at the time as the construction of Paris' RER E underground railway line, to welcome new shops more in keeping with the Quartier de l'Opéra-Saint Lazare, the heart of Paris major business district.

The passage is near Gare Saint-Lazare and opposite the Hôtel Concorde (the station's hotel). It begins at Place du Havre and leads onto Rue de Caumartin where it ends.
