The Casino de Paris is one of the most emblematic concert halls in Paris. Located in the 9th arrondissement of Paris, this cult venue is distinguished by its Belle Époque and Art Nouveau architecture.

In the Nouvelle-Athènes district, the Casino de Paris is one of the capital's most emblematic concert halls. From the street, passers-by admire its architecture, a blend of Belle Époque and Art Nouveau, making it a vestige of the Paris of yesteryear, while continuing to thrill the City of Light with its programming that showcases the performing arts.

Inside, you'll discover sparkling chandeliers, decorative frescoes and a warm atmosphere in a historic setting. In this main hall, with a total capacity of 1681, spectators can enjoy musicals, plays, concerts and variety shows on a stage that has seen the likes of Edith Piaf, Maurice Chevalier, Misstinguett, Ben Harper, Maxime Le Forestier, Jamel Debbouze and Lou Reed.

The festive history of the Casino de Paris goes back a long way. In 1730, during the reign of Louis XV, the Duke of Richelieu had the Folie-Richelieu theater built on its site. The site was later transformed into an amusement park, before being replaced by the Church of the Holy Trinity. This was later demolished and rebuilt on its present site, and a leisure hall was built on the site of the Folie-Richelieu. This included a skating rink, part of which was converted into the Palace-Theatre. It wasn't until 1891 that it became the Casino de Paris. Since then, it has become one of the capital's most legendary venues!
