Suprisingly enough, the Théâtre des Champs Elysées isn't actually on the Champs Elysées itself, but just down the road on the (still very upmarket) Avenue Montaigne. The building is a beautiful example of classic/art deco architecture, classified as a national monument, and contains three auditoria.
Built in 1913 it was originally famous for concerts of scandalous modern classical music such as the world première of Stravinsky's Rite of Spring.
In 1994 an extra floor was added in order to create the Maison Blanche restaurant with its lofty view of the Eiffel Tower (accompanied by similarly vertiginous prices) and 'trendy' White Room, a bar with a summer terrace, DJs and customer striking a suitable pose.
Alain Bernardin founded the Crazy Horse Saloon in 1951, drawing creative inspiration from American striptease.
An institution for night owls, the Crazy Horse Saloon is know for its teasing but tasteful topless dancers, and has been carefully renovating its image over the last few years, with guest spots by stars such as Carmen Electra, Dita Von Teese and Pamela Anderson.
A succession of sassy and glamorous images, Desires combines chic and sensual. Zula Zazou, Jade Or, Psykko Tico or Nooka Karamel will take you into an universe where aesthetics is sometimes combined with humour without ever abandoning the codes of the house.
