The Last Sinful Tour of Paris: I Missed Some, You Didn’t
Moulin Rouge … the birthplace of cabaret
The Moulin Rouge was opened by Joseph Oller and Charles Zidler in 1889. During that time, Paris was the center of creativity and the city was going through what people call “one of the best times in Paris.” Moulin Rouge is believed to be the place where the cabaret originated. This seductive dance was performed by the show girls who used to live and perform at Moulin Rouge. The establishment’s interiors feature huge floor-to-wall mirrors, expensive chandeliers, plush rugs, a huge dance floor, and spectacular showgirls. The atmosphere inside the establishment becomes totally electrifying and ecstatic when the show is on. Even in these digital times, Moulin Rouge gets a 1,000 guest footfall per night.
Lido de Paris … the Moulin Rouge with more class
Lido de Paris is probably the most famous establishment after the Moulin Rouge. It is located on the Champs Elysees, one of the most attractive neighborhoods in Paris, especially at night. Lido is famous for its musical and dance performances. Every night it hosts shows where the showgirls dress up in the most exotic and exquisite costumes. The interior of Lido is also very extravagant and elegant, adorned with bright colors and old-world decor. The lighting and sound effects are captivating. Stage and stage change almost 60 times right in front of the audience! The oval shape of the room ensures that everyone has a good view. They also have shows where children are allowed, but they also expect nudity in them, even though they don’t seem vulgar. Previously, the Lido used to be a gala event, but these days they allow you to enter without it. But they are particular when it comes to dressing, so ditch your jeans for the night at Lido.
Au Lapin Agile … The Agile Rabbit
Entertainment for adults does not stop in romantic Paris! Au Lapin Agile is another vintage cabaret venue. Many famous people were regular visitors here and we are talking about people like Toulouse-Latrec, Modigliani, Utrillo and Picasso.

During 1905 Pablo Picasso painted a painting that helped to advertise the establishment. The name of the painting was ‘At the Lapin Agile’. Well, if you have adult activities in Paris in mind, do it! Did we mention that this place still preserves the evidence of the eccentric characters from Paris who visited it?

Here you will find the shows very intriguing as most of the male and female performers perform completely nude. However, dance and artistic references are not always full of sexual innuendo, it is more like an adult circus. Something great to see in Paris for adults! Paradis Latin was built in 1803 under the command of Napoleon Bonaparte. Famous writers such as Alexandre Dumas and Balzac were frequent visitors to this place.
Crazy Horse Cabaret … go crazy with the joke
There are cabarets in Paris where you can see theatrical performances of naked dancers, moving and swaying their bodies in an elegant but seductive way, and the crazy horse is one of them. The iconic Crazy Horse opened to the public in 1951. These dances are truly provocative, but this is one of the most sophisticated and reputable cabaret clubs in Paris. Famous celebrities such as Pamela Anderson and Dita von Teese have also performed on the dance floor of the Crazy Horse.
