Lido in Paris has gained a worldwide reputation as one of the truly great entertainment venues. Situated on the world's most beautiful avenue, the legendary Champs Elysees, the Lido is famous for its exotic revues of sparkling spectacle and exhilarating showmanship. The renowned Bluebell Girls and Lido Boy Dancers feature in the Bonheur (Happiness) cabaret, an enchanting musical journey. So why not enjoy dinner and a show in this 1,150 seat panoramic theatre which is just a ten minute taxi ride from the Hotel Beaugrenelle Tour Eiffel?
With 600 costumes, 23 different sets, 20 to 30 costume changes, 42 Bluebell Girls and 16 Lido Boy Dancers, you can be sure that Bonheur is a true spectacular. Designed by artistic director Pierre Rambert, the show ' Bonheur ' has been a stunning success which is now into its tenth year. The story is based around a woman who comes from a land where there is no happiness, so she embarks on a quest to find it which takes her through four worlds; Women, Paris, India and Cinema. So prepare to be moved, stirred and excited.
In 1946 Joseph and Louis Clerico took over a venue which had been popular during the 1920s, and gave it a new lease of life. Utilising décor inspired by the Lido Beach of Venice, they created a new concept in sophisticated entertainment. Their dinner and a show package proved hugely successful and the format was copied around the world. When the Bluebell Girls were added to the mix magic was created. This dance troupe created by a former Folies Bergere dancer from Ireland called Margaret Kelly added an alluring glamour which continues undiminished to this day. Come and see why this venue has attained its legendary status.
What better way is there to match the glamour of enjoying a show at the Cabaret Lido than by staying in a charming hotel so close to the glamorous Eiffel Tower? The Hotel Beaugrenelle Tour Eiffel welcomes you with comfort and warmth.
