The Paris of yesteryear

The Moulin Rouge, created by Joseph Oller in Pigalle in 1889, is still a star of the Paris cabaret circuit. It was here that Parisians gathered to wildly applaud La Goulue, the establishment's most celebrated cancan dancer. Today, over one hundred years later, the ritual each evening is the same: as soon as the opening of Offenbach's famous music sounds out, dancers in tricolour skirts burst onto the stage and throw themselves into the frenetic French cancan that brought the cabaret its fame.

Pirates - Les Masques Moulin Rouge® - S.Franzese

Immortalised by Baz Luhrmann in his 2001 film " Moulin Rouge," the cabaret and its current review "Fairy," remain an emblem of Montmartre. And its devilish rhythms and sumptuous dinners still have the power to plunge you back to the era of Belle Époque Paris.

Cabaret of marvels

Red with pleasure

At the Crazy Horse, opened in 1951 off the Champs-Élysées by Alain Bernardin, red is the defining motif: colouring the velvet-lined walls, the soles of the Crazy Girls' iconic Christian Louboutin stilettos, and evoking the erotic elegance of its reviews.

Crazy Horse Crazy Horse 2017

The distinctive Crazy Horse "touch," is the incredible play of light on the dancers' bodies. The cabaret's most recent review, "Totally Crazy", created by Philippe Decouflé, cheekily revisits some of the house's legendary numbers. A mischievous show, to be enjoyed with a glass of Champagne in hand, before or after dinner, beside the most beautiful avenue in the world.

Infernal paradise

The stunning décor of the Paradis Latin, located a stone's throw from Notre-Dame Cathedral, is almost as dazzling as what's on stage. Today, this magnificent theatre, designed in 1889 by Gustave Eiffel, stages a flamboyant, exciting show that combines breathtaking circus acts, modern ballet and the French Cancan.
