Certainly one of the most popular activities in Paris is a night of dazzling entertainment at a cabaret show! 

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, historic Paradis Latin, racy Crazy Horse, lively Nouvelle Eve or modern Mugler Follies.

Le Lido
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. You won't regret ending your evening with a Lido de Paris Dinner and Show!

Paradis Latin
A visit to Paradis Latin will take you back in time. 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. Take a step back in time to enjoy this historical venue and brilliant show with a Paradis Latin Dinner and Show in Paris!
No list of Paris cabarets is complete without a mention of the Crazy Horse Cabaret. For more than 60 years, it has wowed audiences with dazzling dancers and racy routines, often leaving guests hot under the collar. All resident dancers, including Zula Zazou and Psykko Tico, dedicate three months to intense training before they hit the stage for a performance. Watch their efforts pay off in the cabaret’s Désirs. Creative lighting displays and silhouettes of the female form play major roles in the 14 acts, all brought to life with the help of designer Christian Louboutin and photographer David Lynch.

Mugler Follies
Mugler Follies Cabaret in Paris adds a modern twist to the traditional French cabaret thanks to the imagination of fashion designer Manfred Thierry Mugler, who has created a world of wonder, glamour, and fresh entertainment. Would you expect anything less than fabulous from a director who has worked with Beyonce and Cirque de Soleil? The show follows the story of a young girl who encounters unpredictable life changes and undergoes a sublime transformation as she finds herself amid bold effects and brilliant costumes. The brand new show boasts a diverse cast of artists, dancers, acrobats, singers, models, and more to create what is bound to be a whimsical performance.

Set in the Montmartre neighborhood, Nouvelle Eve is especially popular for its rendition of the Can-Can. The show has been around since 1898—its modern incarnation since 1949. La Nouvelle Eve's interior of deep blue velvet stars and coverings is based on the heady times of the Belle Epoque, when cabaret was invented in a whirl of glitter and feathers.
