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

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

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!

Lido: Our 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 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.

What People Are Saying About Lido

Great safe way to get to all the attractions in the city.

We got the 3 day ticket and would recommend this if you have the time. Sometimes the traffic is heavy in the city centre so it takes a while to get to attractions. This would be the same in a car or taxi though. We got the subway sometimes also but definitely felt safer on the tour bus.
Paris: 1, 2, or 3-Day Hop-on Hop-off Ticket Reviewed by Lorraine, 10/24/2016

Very good way to see the major attractions in one day

A really good trip, no problems, got picked up on time. Everything was explained on the bus on the way to Paris in a number of languages making it accessible to everyone. You only get just over 6 hours in Paris which means you have to go around quite fast. Unfortunately we missed the bus back to our hotel, however as explained by the guide on the way there you can catch a metro back to Disneyland from near the leaving point for just over 7 euros.

This was a spectacular and romantic evening!!

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.
