    I went to the Paradis Latin (invited) show a couple of years back and I didn't think it was very good, also the Folies Bergere back in my taxi-driving days. Every time we see a show on the télé and they show the audiences everybody seems to be craning their necks to try to see something. I wouldn't bother but then I'm not a tourist there.
    Pedro's suggestion of the Lapin Agile is a good one, but from my memory your French would have to be pretty good. If it's a sumptuos 1900's superb decoration and lovely food try Restaurant Julien on faubourg St. Denis, don't forget to book though. It is a great evening.

    Just throwing my vote in with the others to choose a lovely, authentic restaurant instead of the cabarets you've listed. The two previous posters know what they're about when it comes to Paris, and I'm inclined to agree that these shows tend to draw only tourists these days: which is why we skipped them during our time in the city. :O)

    I personally wouldnt spend my wedding anniversary at the Moulin Rouge. I have been and wouldnt recommend it for a romantic night in Paris. Paris has some amazing restaurants. I would choose somewhere where you can watch the lights twinkle on the Eiffel Tower.

    Another vote for a nice restaurant and skipping the touristy cabarets. The authentic French cabarets are in French and unless you speak the language, it would go over your head. I'd rather have a lovely dinner and conversation for my anniversary. One place that is often recommended here and is very French is Le Train Bleu in the Gare de Lyon. Here's the web site to give you some idea of what you'll see. Food is excellent. le-train-bleu.com/uk/index.p...

    A big advantage is that you'll walk out into a very pretty part of Paris where you can walk down to the Seine and walk along the river with all the lights of Paris. Very romantic.

    Have a Happy Anniversary and a great trip to Paris.

    I went to a Crazy Horse show quite a few years ago, and I have to say it was really quite interesting and enjoyable. I think it's a bit less touristy than many other places like the Moulin Rouge or Folies Bergere. To be honest, as a wife, I'd rather spend an anniversary having a delicious, romantic dinner than having my husband watching naked women. :-)

     Haha Sally, did you know as you do your romantic walk along the Seine you are just by the City morgue!!!!! This in no way detracts from the enjoyment, neither of Le Train Bleu or a walk along the Seine (although I'd start my walk from a bit further on, by the Pont Sully and Ile St Louis)

    Paul, I'll keep the morgue in mind next time and try to be more serious as I walk by. We like the sculpture garden on the other side of the Seine and the Jardin des Plantes was our first "find" on our first trip to Paris many years ago and we like to return often.
