Richelieu - Drouot is a station of the Paris Métro on lines 8 and 9. It was opened on 30 June 1928 with the extension of line 8 from Opéra and line 9 from Chaussée d'Antin.

It is named after the streets of Boulevard de Richelieu and Rue Drouot. Richelieu (1585–1642) was Secretary of State to Louis XIII. Antoine Drouot (1774–1847) was Aide-de-camp to Napoleon I in 1813 and accompanied him to Elba and during his brief comeback known as the Hundred Days.
