Our Insiders' Article


When you ask a local what the most famous Parisian cabaret is, they might not mention the Paradis Latin (Latin Paradise), but little do they know that this it is the oldest one of them all. Located in the heart of the Quartier Latin, the historic cradle of Paris, the Paradis Latin offers a stunning architecture born out of Gustave Eiffel’s imagination (the same person that designed the Eiffel Tower), a magnificent décor, a typical yet impressive show (including the French Cancan) and a delicious dinner. This cabaret is therefore a true entertainment paradise.


French Cancan is what a lot of people expect from a typical Parisian Cabaret, but although this dance is performed at the Paradis Latin, it is not the only performance of the 1:30 hour show. It starts at 9:30PM with some dancing and some singing, with the performers dressed in magnificent costumes. Then come the acrobats: Christopher, the “birdman” does his trapeze stunts while Angelo Balland rides around the tables on his high monocycle. After a moment of traditional French Cancan, popularized by Offenbach’s tune in the 19th century, it’s time for the Grand Finale, where close to half a million flower petals are thrown. The show ends at 11PM.

Food & Beverage

In the common understanding of the word Cabaret, everyone thinks of a song and dance show. But originally, a cabaret was a place where wine and other spirits were sold, as well as food. The Paradis Latin combines the visual beauty of the show with the gustative beauty of food and wine, as it is both a paradise for entertainment and a paradise for gourmets. Traditional French ingredients with tender meat or delicate fish are served to those who have chosen the dinner formula. There are 3 different dinner menus prepared by Chef Simon, ranging from €130 to €190, depending on the food served. The iconic Paradis Latin desert is the “Gourmandise” (raspberry and vanilla ice cream creation) created by pastry chef Carl Marletti. As for the drinks, the best seller Fresh-Cancan is subtle mix of champagne, raspberry and mint. 


A perfect show is already great, and if you add a delicious dinner, it’s even better. But when adding the fact that it all happens in a historical building, it becomes an experience. The structure of the Paradis Latin was created by a subsidiary of Gustave Eiffel’s company at the same time as the Eiffel Tower at the end of the 19th century. Above the metal balcony is the famous dome, which saved the building from destruction in the 1970’s. After a long period of restauration, the Paradis Latin can now welcome 700 guests each night.


In the 17th century, a hospital was built here and managed by Saint Vincent de Paul (canonized later in 1737), welcoming the poor and sick. During the Revolution, it became a prison, which was destroyed during the reign of Napoleon, who decided to replace it with a theater: le Théâtre Latin. Destroyed in 1870 by a bomb during the Franco-Prussian war, a new theater was built for the 1889 World Exposition by a subsidiary of the Gustave Eiffel Company, which opened in January of 1889, 4 months before the Eiffel Tower. After a period of great success, the Right Bank drained the crowds from the Left Bank and the Paradis Latin was abandoned (it even became a workshop before complete abandonment). Only in 1973 has the Paradis Latin re-opened as a cabaret, welcoming thousands of people each year.  


The Paradis Latin is now one of the most famous cabarets in Paris, and the only one on the Left Bank. Every night, 25 artists are mobilized for the show and 92 people constantly work for the cabaret (technicians, waiters, décor etc..). There are 15 000 balloons released in the audience and tons of foie gras, smoked salmon and Prime Cut Beef served each year. At the Paradis Latin, 30 000 champagne bottles are opened every year. With those key figures in mind, there is no doubt that Paradis Latin is a great place for entertainment.
