Today’s deep house nightclubs are usually full of fashionable melancholy millennials, wearing all black from head to toe, and trying to look as macabre as possible. Sorry to break it to you, but the only goth who could pull off that look and summon the dead was Lydia Deetz.
Lets rewind to 1920’s Paris, where night life was so ghastly, it could even get you killed. Pagan rituals, human sacrifice, and grim images of death flooded the streets at night and made headlines by day. Two of the most popular spots for the not so faint of heart… or maybe heartless, were the Cabaret de l’Enfer (Cabaret of Hell) and the Cabaret du Neant (Cabaret of Nothingness), both are featured here in a photo series.
