Immortalised in the posters of Toulouse-Lautrec and later on screen by Baz Luhrmann, Paris' mythical cabaret club twinkles beneath a 1925 replica of its original red windmill. Yes, it’s rife with bus-tour crowds. But from the opening bars of music to the last high cancan-girl kick, it’s a whirl of fantastical costumes, sets, choreography and Champagne.

Book in advance online and dress smart (jacket and tie is advised for men, but not obligatory). No entry for children under six.
