Paradis Latin is the most Parisian of the great Cabarets, located in the heart of the Left Bank, just a few minutes walk from Notre Dame and the Pantheon. Built by Gustave Eiffel in 1889, it is National landmark and home to the Hit Show "Paradis à la Folie" with its prestigious artists acclaimed by our guests from all over the world. A little, a lot, passionately ... à la folie! A fabulous cocktail of musical comedy, lavish fanfare and modern ballets" featuring of course the famous French Cancan! Quality of service and dining experience, followed by Paradis à la Folie, are the reasons why its is the Cabaret of Choice of the French public where they come to celebrate the important moments of their lives.

..or at least it is for the performers at Le Paradis Latin. An amusing evening out, if a little overpriced, it's one of Paris' legendary cabaret experiences complete with bare-breasted dancers, white tux-wearing MCs and a melange of comedy, drama, cheesiness and all-round entertainment. Loved the show but would pass on the food if we went back and just go... More

I loved so much Paradis Latin! It was so cozy, intimate, and sexy. I felt like I was in the early 20s. The place and everyone were so welcoming, they made me feel at home.

I visited the Paradis Latin as an English tourist with Riviera Travel. I had a three course evening meal which was delicious and watched the show. Watching the contortionist was breath-taking. It was the highlight of my whole trip. One of the best nights of my life. Thank you so much..... Merci beaucoup. x x x x x x x... More

Good show with interesting variety of performances and acts. Dinner was surprisingly good vs. what I expected and the wines were adequate in quality and quantity. I can recommend this place as good overall experience.

A really fun traditional cabaret in a beautiful theatre. Corny in places but some great dance numbers and acts. They also do dinner, though we didn't have it. The staff were genuinely friendly.

Our party was on an organised outing to this venue. We weren't sure what to expect. The building inside is lovely. Very French. Red and black decor with huge chandeliers. Dinner was included and was excellent although the included wine was awful! The show was half in French, half in English. Very professional, great dancers, singers magician and contortionist. A...

Went here in early June 2016 with some friends in their 50-60's. We had a table right next to the stage extension. I have been to the Moulin Rouge, Lido and Crazy Horse several times throughout the years and this was my first time at Le Paradis Latin. Like all the "cabaret" shows in Paris, there is a tired feeling... More

We chose to come to the Paradis Latin cabaret after reading the reviews and hearing about the overpriced lido and molin rouge... we had a great time watching a nice variety show with tastefully done semi nude musical numbers and spectacular acrobatics and nice comedy breaks... we loved it and the theatre... the MC's even took the time to pose...

Staying in Quartier Latin

Neighborhood Profile
Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendor and ongoing merriment. The small streets are filled with classical buildings, student bars and lively eateries while the squares are dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which celebrates the great men and women of France. During the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighborhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
