The illuminated landmarks of Paris are a sight to behold. The Eiffel Tower, which sparkles every hour from nightfall until 1 am, is a remarkable sight to behold at night. The narrow, cobbled streets and hidden alleys of Paris become even more enchanting as the darkness descends. The dimly lit cafes, cozy bars, and live music venues create a warm and inviting atmosphere, and Paris becomes even more enchanting than usual.
With that in mind, we at Strolls have created a unique itinerary to celebrate some of the best things in Paris at night.

8:00 pm 🍝🥗 Dinner at Les Tantes Jean!
Les Tantes Jeanne is a restaurant that prides itself on sublimating exceptional meats, with Kobe beef being its signature dish. Kobe beef is a rare delicacy of unparalleled tenderness, considered by many to be the best meat in the world. Raised in the Hyōgo province in Japan, Kobe beef is subjected to strict and exclusive breeding methods, including being fed rice and beer for two years and hand-massaged daily with sake-soaked straw while listening to classical music.
These practices result in a fatty and relaxed meat with a unique taste, making it far superior to other Japanese beef breeds, including Wagyu. Due to its very limited export, Kobe beef is a rare delicacy in Europe, with only a handful of restaurants, including Les Tantes Jeanne in Paris, offering it as a filet or entrecote. The chef at Tantes Jeanne sublimates Kobe beef with wonders of the vegetable garden and a beech wood smoked purée, along with other exceptional meats such as Kagoshima, Australian Wagyu, and home-aged meats like Galicia, Normande, Limousine, Aubrac, and Black Angus.
11:00PM 🌹🥂The Moulin Rouge is not just a movie, but a legendary cabaret in Paris that has been enchanting audiences for over 130 years! The cabaret is easily accessible by public transport, and there are several metro stations and bus stops in the area. Located at 82 Boulevard de Clichy, 75018 Paris, the cabaret is easily accessible by public transport, and there are several metro stations and bus stops in the area.

The shows typically run for 90 minutes and include a variety of acts, such as can-can dancers, acrobats, and singers.
