Like all Parisian cabarets, the Paradis Latin offers very adult entertainment. You'll encounter some of the most beautiful women and men you've ever seen, and they're usually naked. But, it's not just about sex; there are well-choreographed dance routines, trapeze artists and acrobats that turn the experience into a naughty version of Cirque du Soleil.
The Paradis Latin was originally built in 1803 on the personal order of Napoleon Bonaparte. The theater quickly became the hangout of noted authors of its time, including Alexandre Dumas and Balzac, giving it the nickname "the literary watering hole."
Sadly it burned down several years later, but was never forgotten. When Paris began preparing for the Universal Exhibition of 1889 for the World's Fair, the city turned to Gustave Eiffel and asked him to restore the theater to its glory. He began his work in 1887 (while still in the process of erecting the tower that would bear his name) and it was ready to impress a new generation of theater goers by the start of the fair.
Today the Paradis Latin, just a quick walk from Notre Dame, is one of the most fashionable cabarets in the city, attracting tens of thousands of visitors a year. The shows are designed to highlight both the history of Paris and its future.
You have several options when it comes to seeing a performance: You can go to the luncheon show, which offers a light lunch during the performance; or choose one of three evening choices: Sit at the bar to watch the show, sit at a table with a bottle of Champagne, or have a four course meal with mineral water, Champagne and Bordeaux wine.
