Cabaret, otherwise know as the ‘Cab’, is probably the best-looking club in Paris (Ora-ïto-designed). The space is huge and labyrinthine, with a myriad interconnecting rooms and dead-ends that all look a bit too similar in the dark red light, so take a ball of thread with you. Separating the restaurant from the club area is a large dance-floor that’s illuminated by red strip lights on the floor, and is surrounded by bench-lined booths. Two separate rooms have long rows of sexy red benches, each with its own oversized lampshade; another area has tables recessed into the ground, encircled with a tyre-like cushion so that you need to climb into them; there are two bars (or is it three?), and even a blue-lit aquarium. On Mondays and Tuesdays most of the areas are closed off and the space becomes more like an intimate DJ bar. From Wednesday to Saturday, it’s a proper club, drawing in glamorous crowds (especially Friday when it’s 1980s Mania and Saturday when it’s house).
