Heaven And Hell Themed Nightclubs Of 1890s Paris

Late 19th century Paris was a swinging place, with nightclubs that promised to send your spirit straight to heaven, leave you lingering in a drunken limbo, or help you sin your way into the depths of hell.

These clubs provided theatrical ambiance, astoundingly detailed architecture and a never ending array of alcoholic beverages, and they were designed to take patrons on a trip to the other side, a true escapists paradise.

These amazing clubs no longer exist, but they were well documented in the 1899 book Bohemian Paris Of To-Day by William Chambers Morrow and Edouard Cucuel, which is now available via archive.org.
