While many tourists choose to take in the titillating spectacle offered at the Moulin Rouge (whose popularity, surely, surged in the wake of the film's release), Crazy Horse is where more discerning sensualists seek out an evening of entertainment. Discerning, and monied: tickets range anywhere from €100,00 to €209,00 depending on where you choose to sit and how much champagne you choose to quaff during your time at the club. Oh, and that souvenir photo will run you a cool €20,00.
Looking for a bit of cheeky fun while we were in Paris, we decided to sit in on a late-night Crazy Horse show, surrounded mainly by couples and groups of businessmen with a taste for the unchaste. The cabaret experience aligned with our expectations, which is to say, it wasn't over the top in its eroticism—gently raunchy if anything.
Crazy Horse isn't a seedy strip joint, after all, so those looking for more lascivious overtones from the show would likely be disappointed. What did come as a shock was a report from, of all places, the bathroom, where our guest came back with news that two-person stalls lay within. Erm. Romantic?
And no, readers, we didn't take any photos whilst inside. For a peek at the goods you'll have to book a ticket yourself.
