Beyond Moulin Rouge: Paris’ Other Famous Cabarets
By Viator, October 2013
While the Moulin Rouge may be the most popular cabaret outside France, the locals know better than to miss a chance to visit one of the other famous Parisian cabarets; like the glamorous Lido or historic Paradis Latin.
Le Lido is located right on the Champs Elysées - making it the perfect spot for a night on Paris' most glamorous avenue. Home to performances by famous names and frequented by local socialites and celebrities, the cabaret is renowned for its spectacular performances and glittering revues. It is the preferred venue by the international high-society and for good reason. The shows at Le Lido are one of a kind, with technological additions like giant screens, laser effects and the venue even houses an ice rink. While still an adult show, it is less suggestive than the other cabarets and has tap dancing, clowns and a cowboy show. It successfully combines sensual cabaret dancing with Vegas-style entertainment; you won't regret ending your evening with a Lido de Paris Dinner and Show!
A visit to Paradis Latin will take you back in time as its history can be traced back to 1803. Commissioned by Napoleon Bonaparte in the early 1800s, the cabaret was destroyed by a fire and rebuilt by Gustave Eiffel for the 1889 World's Fair (the same fair where he would unveil his famous tower). Paradis Latin shows focus on the art of dance while incorporating trapeze acts and acrobatics, all performed by some of the most beautiful women and men you've ever seen, in extravagant (yet barely-there) costumes. This cabaret is situated on the Right Bank, not far from the Notre Dame, a much safer area than that around the Moulin Rouge. Take a step back in time to enjoy this historical venue and brilliant show with a Paradis Latin Dinner and Show in Paris!
