The name of Chmielna Street appeared in official documents in the second half of the 18th century. Hops were probably grown here. A truly garden landscape and low, loose wooden buildings dominated.

In 1770, the street was regulated as far as Twarda, and soon it was partially paved. The first brick houses appeared in Chmielna only at the end of the 18th century, near the intersection with Marszałkowska.
