Proudly representing French music hall, the Paradis Latin has brought an air of folly to Paris since it opened in 1802. Renovated in 1889 by the famous engineer of the Eiffel Tower, Gustave Eiffel, the dean of the Parisian cabarets, knew how to throw a party. The Paris A-list would eagerly flock to the Paradis Latin, a stone’s throw from the Panthéon and Notre-Dame. Honoré de Balzac, Alexandre Dumas and even Prosper Mérimée were among the cabaret’s regulars.

Art Deco and French Cancan

More than a century later, this mythical theatre continues to successfully enliven the Parisian scene with its Grande Revue Parisienne. With its emblematic decor, imposing metal structure, red and black lacquered walls and art deco chandeliers, French cancan dancers and acrobats perform for an hour and a half, coming together for the grand finale.

Gourmet Paradise

Not just a feast for the eyes, but for the taste buds as well! At the Paradis Latin, French gastronomy has place of honour. Chef Simon and his army of cooks prepare the great classics of French cuisine. For lunch or dinner, choose between the Festival, Star or Prestige menus served by the team of waiters in white aprons. A truly unique way to appreciate the magical atmosphere of Belle Époque Paris.

Protected paradise

The first of the Parisian cabarets to reopen its doors to the public, the Paradis Latin has adopted a sophisticated health protocol: health pass, social distancing, wearing a mask, barrier gestures… everything is done to ensure a quality show in complete safety.
