Right next door to Cabaret de l'Enfer was Cabaret du Ciel ("The Cabaret of the Sky"), a Heaven-themed club where women dressed in white robes with angel wings would take drink orders while a guy dressed as St. Peter "blessed" the crowd from high above the floor.
So the next time you're bored and checking your phone at an endless nightclub bathroom line, just think that a hundred years ago, you could've been getting roasted by a French dude in Satan makeup. Nowadays you'd have to hit up the world's shadiest hostel to recreate that experience.
