Édith Piaf

Start with the obvious! Piaf was France's top star of the age, and with Le Lido providing the Champs-Élysées' premium cabaret venue, she inevitably brought the house down!

Elvis Presley

The King of Rock 'n' Roll once gave an impromptu performance at the legendary venue while stationed in France as an American GI!

Eartha Kitt

Eartha Kitt

The one-time Catwoman worked Paris' cabarets before being discovered by Orson Welles and finding fame in her native US. Welles called her the "most exciting woman alive!"

Elton John

Le Lido was one of many world-renowned theaters to have hosted Elton John's spectacular 2003 tour.

Noël Coward

Your name doesn't have to begin with 'E' to star at Le Lido! Coward's flamboyance was perhaps more at home in Paris than his native London!

Our insider tips

Le Lido or Moulin Rouge?

Both are as extravagant as they are expensive, so if you can only afford one, consider exactly what you want. Moulin Rouge certainly has the richest history – you can almost feel it coursing through you in the theater! Le Lido, however, tends to be a little classier (or at least less cheesy).

How to get tickets?

You can book a table at lido.fr but consider shopping around for package deals!

How to dress?

The dress code is smart casual. For men, a jacket and tie are encouraged but not compulsory. Shorts, sportswear, and tennis shoes/sneakers are not allowed.

Excellent & very entertaining show! Definitely a highlight of our Paris weekend trip. The parking garage across was convenient especially during a rainy night for the 11pm show. We were glad that we lined up at 10:20, doors didn’t open until after 11pm & guests were under rain shower towards the back of the line. The only downside besides the long wait was the seating. There was little elevation and heads were blocking our view. Seating is assigned upon arrival but was not based on first come first serve.

I booked the 11pm champagne show. While I attempted to move it to 9 pm they were unable to accommodate me. Nonetheless. I was blown away by the show. It was worth the wait and the surrounding area was beautiful. Shop away because they hold your bags until you claim them at the end of the show.

Price was great as was last minute availabilty. Pity we coudnt know (or see) sitting arrangements in advance as they were uncomfortable (sitted at a table with two strangers and 90 degree to show so ended up with strained neck). Show itself was a unique experience.!

Great experience & a fun & varied show. Well organised from the beginning & enjoyed the venue along with all acts. An interval would have been preferred though to break up the 2 hours

It was an excellent show, exciting experience to endure and where it originally came from, the city of Romance! I absolutely had a wonderful time!
