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 building of the Theatre Latin was authorized by Napoleon Bonaparte himself. It’s foudations, however, date from the 13th century, as it was constructed over the ancient walls of Paris built by the King Philippe Auguste. During the Franco Prussian war in 1870, the Theatre Latin along with much of the Latin Quarter was burned to the ground during the siege of Paris. In 1887 its reconstruction began lead by architect Gustave Eiffel. Built simultaneously with the Eiffel Tower in the same metal architecture, it reopened the in January 1889. Renamed Paradis Latin, it was acclaimed the most elegant hall in Paris by critics and public alike, with the inauguration of the Eiffel Tower coming just 5 months later. Extraordinary shows and ballets were created on the stage of the Paradis Latin, a total triumph. But the real devotion of the Paradis Latin comes with the launch of Yvette Guilbert, one of the most famous singers of the era.
Hard financial times hit everywhere, however, and after a brief time used as a pharmaceutical factory, the venue closed its doors. Luckily, a new owner unearthed Gustave Eiffel's impressive metal structure, and the Paradis Latin returned to its glory as a celebrated cabaret hall.
