Crazy Horse Paris

With skilled dancers, sky high heels and stunning performances, Crazy Horse in Paris is my favorite burlesque cabaret in the world.

It was during a dinner and a show at Duane Park in New York where Zoe, a Parisian native that I met at a yoga retreat in Puerto Vallarta, suggested that I go to Crazy Horse while I was in Paris.

Now, I’d known about Crazy Horse in Paris, the same way that I knew about Moulin Rouge. But, for some reason, it didn’t strike me as a place I could book tickets to. Frankly, I thought that the show I wanted would be already sold out and that I would need to find something else to do in Paris.

Not only did the show time and day I wanted have availability – but I also ordered a half bottle of champagne to enjoy at my seat! I went back and forth on also reserving a dinner reservation package at their partner restaurant, Ginger. But ultimately, decided against it – just in case I found something else I wanted to do, better.

On the appointed day, at the appointed hour, I took the metro from the Hotel du Louvre to the Charles V stop. As I’d arrived before doors opened for the late show, I strolled along George V, and was almost immediately blindsided by the Eiffel Tower.

It was like all I needed to do was see it for myself again, after so many years had past since my first trip to Paris. I smiled as I – yet again – remembered that I was in Paris in 30 degree weather.

Walking back to Crazy Horse, admission was finally granted a bit before showtime. I was excited, curious and very, very impressed with the modern details to such a timeless classic. Nothing in Crazy Horse looked dated. In fact, everything looked extremely trendy – even the boob wall!

After checking my coat at the complimentary coat check, I was taken to my seat. Not only was the seat comfortable – but, the view, the champagne and the vibe was also outstanding. And the show hadn’t even started yet!

Once the show began, no photography was allowed. All I can say is, the performance, the precision and the beauty of the dances was incredible. Hands down, the show at Crazy Horse in Paris is my favorite burlesque cabaret in the world.

It was sensual, beautiful and creative. Fun and playful. But, above all else, it was a masterfully produced show.

If you are deciding between Moulin Rogue and Crazy Horse, there’s absolutely no question: go to Crazy Horse. It was everything I wanted to see in a Parisian revue.

Plus, it inspired me to go back to pole classes at Luscious Maven Pole Studio.
