Top 5 famous artists who have performed at Le Lido

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!

  • Édith Piaf

    1. 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

    2. 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

    3. 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

    4. Elton John

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

  • Noël Coward

    5. 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!

Planning Your Visit

  • 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.
