Crazy Horse Cabaret – 2 Best Ways To Enjoy Nightlife in Paris

Posh, glamorous & sensual – Crazy Horse continues to put on a fantastic show. Since the early 1950s, Crazy Horse Paris has been the most avant-garde burlesque cabaret in Paris. It's famous for its lavish song and dance routines performed by a troupe of talented nude dancers. Yes, nude, as in naked. But it's not a strip club.

The routines are presented in a sophisticated and indeed glamorous way and are more sensual than sexual. Crazy Horse Paris is found at the posh address of 12 Avenue George V in the tony Champs-Elysées neighborhood of the Right Bank, steps away from some of the best luxury hotels in the city. While the cabaret's name has expanded to other cities, Crazy Horse Paris remains the most exciting and most glamorous.

The History of Crazy Horse

Crazy Horse Paris

It was founder Alain Bernardin's vision to create a show that combined burlesque with magic, dancing, and complicated choreography. He vision was to go beyond traditional burlesque clubs and intersperse routines with music and comedy from a variety of artists. Over the years, magicians, jugglers, mimes and singers have been included in the shows. In fact, in 1961, French singer Charles Aznavour had his first break at Crazy Horse that set his career on the fast track.

Since those early days Crazy Horse has become an essential element of the city's nighttime culture. More than sixty years after its debut, Crazy Horse Paris continues to reinvent itself with new acts, complicated light shows, scintillating costumes and celebrities. You must be 16 years old to attend Crazy Horse.

Elegant dress is required. It really is a quite sophisticated night on the town.
