Madame Arthur: transvestite cabaret and Parisian club

Published by Communiqué Sponsorisé · Published on June 17th, 2024 at 05:00 p.m.
A true Parisian institution, Madame Arthur transports several generations into her world of cross-dressing and French chanson!

Since 1946, the Madame Arthur cabaret & club has been unleashing the crowds in the Pigalle district. A true pioneer of transvestism, it offers a new show every week and entertains its audiences until the end of the night.

At the foot of the Montmartre hill, the cabaret houses three rooms and five bars, and is a labyrinth of mystery in its belle époque décor. Every week, you're treated to a totally new experience, created by the cabaret's dream creatures! They perform everything from Queen and Dalida to Céline Dion and Elton John. With a touch of fantasy and glitter.

Standing up or sitting down with champagne and dinner, anything is possible to enjoy the Madame Arthur experience. Especially if you like to dance. After the show, a giant Blind-Test awaits you to brush up on your French classics! Then, in a more intimate setting, another show (different from the first, and yes...) awaits you: impertinence, emotion and humor are on the program. In all, more than two shows each evening.

And from midnight onwards, it's all up to you! Dance your way through the cabaret and let yourself get lost (there's plenty to do). More surprises await you when the club takes over. All night long, resident DJs and new creatures take over to keep you dreaming.

What's up? It's already six in the morning? An evening at Madame Arthur's and time will fly by! Now it's your turn to discover the real Paris.
