Top sights in Paris
Along with the Moulin Rouge, Paris' famous Le Lido is a leading light in the French capital's cabaret scene. Enjoy dinner and a show here and perhaps catch a star or two in the making! Not convinced? Here are a few of the big names to have tread its boards!
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!
The King of Rock 'n' Roll once gave an impromptu performance at the legendary venue while stationed in France as an American GI!
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!"
Le Lido was one of many world-renowned theaters to have hosted Elton John's spectacular 2003 tour.
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!
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).
You can book a table at lido.fr but consider shopping around for package deals!

What people are saying about Paris Lido
We made less use of the transport than I expected. We had only a few days and the weather was cold, with rain and snow -- so we chose to reduce time and increase comfort (and of course cost) by using Uber. One thing I would suggest is to clarify the location of the pick-up point. The wording suggested that you go into Cafe Opera - "1st entry on the left at Café de l`Opéra". In fact you have to go inside Galeries Lafayette Homme - just before Café l'Opéra. The people inside Café l'Opéra had no idea where it was and sent me down the street. It took a long time to find the right place; several French people read the instructions and also thought I had to go to Café l'Opéra. I had some problems using the metro pass - the ticket I was given didn't work directly, but I went to a counter and was given a ticket that did. The pass worked flawlessly at several museums, and this was the main reason we purchased it. But for us just getting a Museum Pass would have been better.
I highly recommend doing this tour! It combines 3 must sees in one adventure! The tour makes traveling easy to each venue with lovely explanations of each. We were taken in a/c bus and skipped the lines to Eiffel Tower, enjoyed a wonderful dinner. Met a fabulous couple from Australia. We took some once in a lifetime pictures... Incredibly romantic. We then met a river boat directly adjacent to the Eiffel Tower plaza. The ride was absolutely lovely. To see the city and its people hanging out along the river. Wonderful. Fun loving parisiennes drinking wine and dancing in the banks added to the experience. I don't know if it was timed this way, but as we were pulling up to the dock, the Eiffel Tower began to sparkle. Wow! Then we were taken by bus to the Lido show. It was fabulous. I am a retired ballerina and have performed in many shows all over the world, the Lido never disappoints. The service and the quality can't get any better...much more so than Miulin Rouge.
The most difficult part was getting to the location to pick it up . It changed 3 times ! Took most of an afternoon to track it down. Kept sending us to different places ! Once we received it . It was very good . Immediate access to Louvre & Metro & transit . Wish we had more time to take advantage of all items the items &Opera house was included. River Cruise was great. Better directions to which dock would have helped. Stood in line 20 min to find out need to go to other place . Was also told by one person we could board at 3 different places , not true , only one place by Eiffel Tower. Please correct confusion about pick up & more detail about boat cruise.
Whilst we did not get priority at Versailles. It was useful at The Louvre. I found it hard to visit enough museums and tourist attractions in three days to recoup the money but this was offset by knowing we didn't have to queue at other sites. Eiffel tower not included but we were lucky as it was closed for two days after we visited due to changes to ticketing arrangements. River cruise was excellent.
I was expecting theatre row style layout but this was a table for everyone even if you booked the show and champagne ticket. You can even order some food if you there early (pricey) and watch a live singer. This was a great way to celebrate my birthday in the evening.
