      Old Paris was home not only to fashionable and famous cabarets such as the Moulin Rouge or the Folies Bergère but also to some other somewhat more bizarre places of erm... "merriment". One of such places was the Cabaret du Néant -the Cabaret of Nothingness-, which was to be found at 34 Boulevard de Clichy in Montmartre.

      Yes, sirs, we have a coffin for four ready...

      And who says our ancestors didn't have a sense of humor!
      Looks like the place to be on Halloween!

      It would be as fashionable now as it was back then!

      Looks like "Dracula's" cabaret restaurant here in Melbourne, except the characters in the scene depicted above, appear as if they actually possess some talent. I like it!
