11 Creepy Photos Of 1920s Nightclubs In Paris

Published 9 months ago

Have you ever wandered off to a part of the city that creeped you out? In 1920’s Paris you wouldn’t have to go far because the trend of the day were these rather sinister looking macabre clubs.

One of the most popular of those was The Cabaret de l’Enfer (The Cabaret of Hell). Situated right next to The Cabaret du Ciel (The Cabaret of Heaven) in the Red Lights district, the club offered a design and vibe that resembled a gothic catacomb instead of its neighbor’s fluffy clouds inhabited by angels.

It wasn’t only the facade though. The drinks were named after deadly diseases and served by monks and funeral attendees. All while you sit comfortably behind the coffin-like table and watch the performances about death and the underworld.

Sound like your kind of Friday night entertainment?
