Paradis Latin

28, rue du Cardinal Lemoine, Paris, France, 75005

The Basics

The famed Paradis Latin has a history full of twists, turns, and surprising characters—Napoleon Bonaparte, for one, who ordered the construction of the Latin Theatre (a predecessor to the Paradis Latin) in 1803. Though it was damaged in a fire during the Franco-Prussian War and forced to close, the theater was revamped and renamed under Gustave Eiffel, who decked it out with metal fixtures and a glass cupola in time for the 1889 World’s Fair. With additional periods of closure and renovation behind it, the thriving cabaret hosts its signature show, Paradis à la Folie, most evenings.

The Paradis Latin is an in-demand destination that attracts crowds, so book your tickets in advance. Choose from options that include dinner or Champagne and macarons on the side; upgrade to VIP seating, which affords the best views in the house.

We had a fabulous time! The show was both beautiful and funny. A few years ago we went to a show at La Nouvelle Eve. That show was already so good, but the show at Paradis Latin Paris was even better!

Performances excellent, service poor

Paradis Latin Paris Cabaret Champagne & Show
The show was entertaining, the dancers very talented. We especially enjoyed the aerialists and sharpshooter acts. Unfortunately we were in an audience of mostly elderly people from a cruise ship who were not very energetic towards the performers. We purchased tickets for the show plus champagne, and no one came to our table to serve us until the finale of the show, and then only because one of the servers saw us look at our reservation card and then look around for help.

I definitely enjoyed the bathtub scene as well as the "Burt" moments. The entire show offered a variety of dancing and singing. I highly recommend. Caution: it isn't performed in English but you will still be able to appreciate it.

Paradis Latin Paris Cabaret Champagne & Show
This show was amazing! It would recommend it to everyone visiting Paris. The only downside is with the option I chose was a half bottle of champagne is the seating. Your sat at the side with pillars in the way so it blocks a good chunk of the stage. I wish Viator or the show would make you aware of this as it was limited viewing and allowed you to have chosen your seat, just for the price your paying already you want to make sure you have good views.

Paradis Latin Paris Cabaret Champagne & Show
Incredible show. All the performers were not only insanely talented but magnificent to gaze at also. Thoroughly enjoyed the show and the waiting staff are in great spirits too. Absolutely blew the tired and dated Feerie show at the Moulin out of the water. I am still in awe at the aerial water act... Stunning! Excellent value and would thoroughly recommend to everyone

We wanted to do a cabaret show whilst in Paris, unfortunately Moulin Rouge had sold out, I did some research and this one seemed to be coming out on top. Anyway we thoroughly enjoyed the show, the bath scene was the best for me. For the price I would definitely recommend this show. When looking at shows I was concerned with seating & that we wouldn't be able to see much, it's a really small intimate venue so I'm sure even if sat at the back you would still have a good view. We booked the tickets with a glass of champagne each as I had read that you got slightly better seats, anyway we were right at the front on the second tier so maybe this is true- the glass of champagne is a full wine glass so definitely worth it! I also liked that the show had live acrobatics- not sure if other cabaret shows do. I think you will not be disappointed if you book to see this. We had dinner beforehand at Le Buisson Ardent as it's just around the corner, not too expensive & decent food.
