Imaret's History Nuggets
Le Chat Noir was a nineteenth-century entertainment establishment, in the bohemian Montmartre district of Paris opened by Louis Rodolphe Sallis on 18 November 1881.
Le Chat Noir is thought to be the first modern cabaret: a nightclub where the patrons sat at tables and drank alcoholic beverages while being entertained by a variety show on stage.
Perhaps best known now by its iconic Théophile Steinlen poster art.
From 1892 to 1895 the cabaret published a weekly magazine with the same name, featuring literary writings, news from the cabaret and Montmartre, poetry, and political satire.
