Nightlife: Cabarets in Paris

Visiting Paris without being in a cabaret is like eating a burger without french fries 😅. Less fat, but less fun as well. If you like your burger loaded with french fries, you better prepare do to choose one these three legendary cabarets to visit.

Cabarets in Paris are synonymes with the high aesthetics and the “great show” (le Grand Spectacle).
The legendary cabarets of the French capital host breathtaking spectacular shows and impressive dancing performances by balmy dancers with abundant feathers and pearls. Like a time-machine, they bring to light the glamor of another era. Visiting a cabaret is definately a lifetime experience.
