Le Petit Casino Cafe-Theatre in Paris
Le Petit Casino is a dinner and show venue that features one man band style comedians and new talents in a brasserie style setting for a buffet dinner followed by the shows, which are full of laughter and comedy.
About Le Petit Casino Cafe-Theatre
The Petit Casino first opened in 1969 and was named after a roll of a dice and gamble to create a venue that would purely offer an original form of entertainment, being comedy with solo acts, which would bring joy and laughter to its patrons every evening.
This brasserie style cafe and theatre in Paris was originally a plumbing shop and has still retained some of the original features inside like the exposed stone walls and columns and now has traditional cafe style tables with chequered table cloths and numerous different pictures, photographs, etc that adorn the walls for a relaxed friendly atmosphere when dinning.
You will get to see two different acts of an evening that are cabaret style comediens, although being able to understand the French language is a major plus, otherwise it is very hard to understand some the humour and witty jokes. But at a very reasonable cost compared to many entertainment venues in Paris, it can make a great evening out with friends or family.
Also, a meal at Le Petit Casino Cafe-Theatre is optional and is a buffet style, where you can eat what you like and as much as you like from a wide variety of cold dishes such as charcuterie, a large selection of cheeses, salads, meat, pastries and more that will satisfy anyones tastes. And this is served prior to the evening entertainment commencing, also at a reasonable cost, especially compared to many of the cafes and restaurants in Paris.
