“Fun drag show!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2013

My partner and I went to Chez Michou; got lucky as we didn't purchase a dinner ticket ahead of time so we got in by getting there around 10:00PM and waiting outside. Show starts at 10:30PM and they let in a limited number of people because it is VERY tight inside - maybe room for 50 people? If you don't do dinner, its 20 Euro for admission and a glass of wine. I can't say I understood a lot of the songs given they were in French, but the drag show was fun and a great way to spend the night. Check it out!

“Great show but drinks (even water) 20??!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2013 via mobile

Seriously. After your 40? entry and drink, a single drink: beer, wine, champagne or wve tap water is 20?. Clearly they want you to buy the 110? dinner package.

The show itself is amazing, even for a non-French speaker. We found this through tripadvisor and went as an alternative to touristy Moulin Rouge and it was well worth the show price but I was painfully thirsty and wished so much to enjoy a couple of drinks with the show.

“A taste of Parisian nightlife.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 January 2012

If you want to experience a taste of Parisian nightlife, then you need to visit Chez Michou. Most of the crowd is French (Michou himself is the main attraction). The waiters become the entertainers - as they're phenomenal female impersonators. Good fun.

“Authentic cabaret in Paris”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2011

If you want a big Paris cabaret tailor-made for tourists, go to the Moulin Rouge, Lido or Folies Bergere. Chez Michou is French. But authentic. The food's terrific. The tables are extremely cozy, and the atmosphere is warm. We were the only Americans. Most of the crowd was French. The waiters become the entertainers - as they're phenomenal female impersonators. The show is hysterical, but a bit lengthy. It would be better if it was a half-hour shorter. But overall, this is a terrific way of getting a taste of Parisian nightlife.
