The Lido de Paris, the famous Parisian cabaret located on the emblematic avenue of the Champs-Élysées, has ceased to exist as of September 2022. Celebrities such as George Clooney, Angelina Jolie, Beyoncé, or Kendrick Lamar will no longer be able to walk the blue carpet of this iconic venue as Edith Piaf, Josephine Baker, Dalida, or Elton John did. From its official creation in 1946 until its change of direction in 2022, the Lido created 27 variety shows, featured over 10,000 dancers, and housed 2 performances daily, almost 365 days per year. Originally serving as a bathhouse and entertainment venue for the working classes, the Lido de Paris was turned into a Venetian luxury-styled cabaret in 1946 and has been an inspiration to many. For it was here, at the Lido de Paris, that the very concept of dinner-and-a-show was created, a practice widely adopted by entertainment halls of all variety all over the world. In keeping with its history as both a bathhouse and place of entertainment, the Lido has become famous for its very own on-stage pool and spectacularly artful performances. Unfortunately now, times have changed once again and the dancers' huge legs, feathered and sequined costumes, royal head carriages, rhinestone-covered bodies, and the revues where we celebrated Paris with a glass of champagne and a good meal are over. Long live the Lido de Paris and enter in Lido2Paris! The new hall will be revamped, with shows of a new kind. In the place of cabaret will now stand some of the biggest actors and theatrical performers from all around the world to perform famous international musicals. When New York comes to Paris, it's explosive!
