Story: My First Cabaret at Paradis Latin

My First Cabaret at Paradis Latin is a show designed for children and adults. As such, Kamel Ouali, the renowned choreographer and director, wanted to create an original, festive, and participative show to demonstrate to everyone that cabaret is, above all, a moment of pure fantasy. His programme includes acrobats, magic, dance, animations, dazzling special effects, singing, and comedy. All the energy of a cabaret show, adapted to the whole family! Don't miss out!

The show even has a brand new show leader: the charming Zoé Clauzure, winner of the Junior Eurovision!

History and Fun Facts about Le Paradis Latin Cabaret Club


A historical hall designed by Monsieur Eiffel himself!
Listed as a historical landmark and heritage site in Paris, the Paradis Latin’s history dates back to 1803, when the construction of the Théâtre Latin was authorized by Napoleon Bonaparte himself. Its foundations, however, date from the 13th century, as it was built atop the ancient walls of Paris, which themselves were constructed during the reign of King Philippe Auguste. During the Franco-Prussian war in 1870, the Théâtre Latin, along with much of the Latin Quarter, was burned to the ground during the siege of Paris. In 1887, its reconstruction began, led by architect Gustave Eiffel. Built in tandem with the Eiffel Tower, and with similar metal materials, it reopened in January 1889. Renamed “Paradis Latin”, it was thought by Parisian critics and public alike to be the most elegant hall in the city, and the inauguration of its sister construction, the Eiffel Tower, took place five months later. Extraordinary shows and ballets lit up the stage of the Paradis Latin, branding it a total triumph. But the real diamond of its history comes with the launch of Yvette Guilbert, one of the most famous singers of her era.


Hard financial times hit everywhere, however, and after briefly serving as a pharmaceutical factory, the venue closed its doors. Luckily, a new owner has blown the dust off of Gustave Eiffel's impressive metal structure, and the Paradis Latin has been returned to its glory as a celebrated cabaret hall.


A celebration of French entertainment and gastronomy.

The enchantment of Paradis Latin comes not only from the show, but from the high-quality cuisine as well, with a modern kitchen layout, a rigorously chosen roster of suppliers, cuisine made from the freshest ingredients, and the highest ability level in the kitchen. French gastronomy is an essential element of Paradis Latin’s festivities!
With its privileged location in the heart of Paris, just steps from the Notre-Dame Cathedral in the famous Quartier Latin, an evening at the Paradis Latin is a truly Parisian experience you cannot miss.
