We turned up here at 10p.m and were let in to sit at the bar and watch the show. It was 40 euros and that included a glass of champagne. We had great banter with the bartender. A guy came on first to sing and then the drag show started. It was on almost 2 hours in total and we... More

If you don't speak much French (like me) but still want to experience a different sort of cabaret experience in Paris, I highly recommend booking a seat at Chez Michou. We lucked out and got the last three seats at the bar. Very cramped but the staff did their best to accommodate and make us as comfortable as possible. Really... More

I had booked this months ahead, and was really looking forwarded to bring and surprise my English-"scared"-of-gays boyfriend. When we first came in, we saw pictures of the owner with all kind of celebrity's, and we knew this was a special place. coming in to an atmosphere like no others, getting good tasting foods and drink. The show was a... More

My partner and I went to Chez Michou; got lucky as we didn't purchase a dinner ticket ahead of time so we got in by getting there around 10:00PM and waiting outside. Show starts at 10:30PM and they let in a limited number of people because it is VERY tight inside - maybe room for 50 people? If you don't... More

Seriously. After your 40? entry and drink, a single drink: beer, wine, champagne or wve tap water is 20?. Clearly they want you to buy the 110? dinner package. The show itself is amazing, even for a non-French speaker. We found this through tripadvisor and went as an alternative to touristy Moulin Rouge and it was well worth the show... More

If you want to experience a taste of Parisian nightlife, then you need to visit Chez Michou. Most of the crowd is French (Michou himself is the main attraction). The waiters become the entertainers - as they're phenomenal female impersonators. Good fun.

If you want a big Paris cabaret tailor-made for tourists, go to the Moulin Rouge, Lido or Folies Bergere. Chez Michou is French. But authentic. The food's terrific. The tables are extremely cozy, and the atmosphere is warm. We were the only Americans. Most of the crowd was French. The waiters become the entertainers - as they're phenomenal female impersonators.... More
