We do not speak much french but really enjoyed Chez Michou. Once inside this fully mirrored room - it is a tiny venue we enjoyed a three course meal with wine followed by a show which was superb, OK the intro by Michou we didn't really get and one talking comic act - however the other 9 or 10 impersonations...

Very tinny cabaret but enjoyed it all. Food was good, staff are amazing as they are all involved in the show after dinner. You must speak French for most of the jokes during the show . Great for an evening with friends, but not sure for a repeated thing .

Chez Michou is a show for French people. Not only because only french is spoken but also because the content of the show -jokes, comments, etc.- refers to French stuff. The experience is like going to a cabaret show in a very small place, all the tables against each other with plenty of french people enjoying and laughing at every... More

Chez Michou is definitely worth a visit if you want something different and more authentic than Lido or Moulin Rouge. The venue is supersmall but that adds to the ambiance and the food exceeded our expectations!! Much better than the the big touristy shows. Yes, the whole thing is in french and some of the acts were typically French and... More

My wife and I were attracted to Chez Michou by the positive reviews and wanting a cabaret experience in the traditional style. And it was fantastic! Definitely recommend doing the dinner - we found the food great, plentiful whilst the bottle of champagne was terrific. The staff were excellent and although no English was spoken we are communicated just fine.... More

I did not enjoy this show at all. I might have enjoyed it if I spoke French - not sure. But because none of my party of 5 speaks French, we did not pick up on the jokes and fun the native or French speaking audience members seemed to enjoy. Not for young, non-French-speaking, or African Americans. I've seen a... More

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

Staying in Montmartre

Neighborhood Profile
Montmartre
Montmartre is a bustling mix of cultures, colors, and styles which changes from one street to another. Ride the funicular (or, for a real workout, climb the steps) to the sublime Sacré-Coeur (Basilica of the Sacred Heart) with its inspiring view of the city. The church is surrounded by provincial streets and piano bars where tourists, artists, and street entertainers thrive. At the foot of the hill, Boulevard de Clichy features shops not intended for young audiences, while residences are scattered to the north and east. The diverse population includes a large part from the Arab-speaking world, Africa, and Turkey. It’s a corner of Paris full of life and dynamism with charms that can’t be found anywhere else.
