Documented by the sometimes whimsical paintings of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and continuing to capture our imagination today, the tradition of Paris cabarets dates back to early 1880s, when Le Chat Noir (The Black Cat) opened in the decidedly Bohemian Montmartre neighborhood. At the time, it served as a showcase for young talent who were paid in absinthe, and would resemble the open mic nights of today than the organized debauchery of Baz Luhrman’s film, Moulin Rouge.
