Olympia Hall (L'Olympia Bruno Coquatrix) is a music hall in the 9th arrondissement of Paris, located at No. 28, Boulevard des Capucines. Founded in 1888, by Joseph Oller, the creator of the Moulin Rouge, today easily recognizable by its giant red glowing letters announcing its name.
It opened in 1889 as the "Montagnes Russes" but was renamed the Olympia in 1893. Besides musicians, the Olympia played host to a variety of entertainment including circuses, ballets, and operettas. However, following a steady decline in appearances by the great stars, from 1929 until 1944 it served as a movie theatre. It may have opened as a music hall under the German occupation of France during World War II, but certainly in 1945 after the Liberation, it was a music hall free to Allied troops in uniform. Already, it was a two thousand-seat hall.
It ultimately went into another decline and was in danger of being torn down and turned into a parking lot but on 7 January 1993, France's then Minister of Culture, Jack Lang issued a preservation order for the Olympia that resulted in two years of construction work to rebuild a perfect replica of the façade and the grandeur of its famous red interior.
Today, L'Olympia Bruno Coquatrix is a 1996-seat music hall, which has showcased a wide variety of performers.

Came here to see Caro Emerald in early July 2104. The venue has nice bar areas for drinks etc and prices are not too expensive, but make sure you eat before coming here as there are only snacks... read full review

    Lieu fantastique et mythique ! Même du fond on voit pas mal du tout (bon plan pour les places pas trop chères). Ne pas oublier les ouvreuses.
