This cabaret may be a bit less glitzy than the others, but it makes more of an attempt to harken back to the cabarets of yesteryear, which featured live and sometimes talented performers. You’ll see a variety of acts, as well as the obligatory topless beauties in feathered costumes and a rollicking can-can. There is a fair amount of audience interaction, and a good portion of the show is translated in English. Gustave Eiffel designed the metallic armature holding up the roof. There are some lunchtime shows, with one menu offering nothing but cakes. If you’ve money to burn and you’re up for some French fun (not to mention in good physical form), sign up or the 2-hour can-can workshop and learn how it’s done (once a month; 160€).
