Le Chat Noir (French for "The Black Cat") was a 19th-century
cabaret in the bohemian Montmartre district of Paris. It was opened on
18 November 1881 at 84 Boulevard Rouchechouart by the artist Rodolphe
Salis, and closed in 1897 (much to the disappointment of Picasso and
others who looked for it when they came to Paris for the Exposition in
1900). Its imitators have included cabarets from St. Petersburg (The
Stray Dog) to Barcelona (Els Quatre Gats). There is a "Black Cat" cafe
in the City of Corfu, Greece, next to the sea on the main street
between the (new) harbor and the center of town, and a quite
conventional tourist restaurant called "Au Chat Noir" in the center of
Brussels.Perhaps best known now by its iconic Théophile-Alexandre
Steinlen poster art, in its heyday it was a bustling nightclub —
part artist salon, part rowdy music hall, partially due to an illegal
piano. The cabaret published its own journal Le Chat Noir. It began as
a small, two room affair, but within three and a half years its
popularity forced it to move into larger accommodations a few doors
down. Salis most often played, with exaggerated, ironic politeness,
the role of conférencier (post-performance lecturer, or MC). It was
here that the Salon des Arts Incohérents (Salon of Incoherent Arts),
the "shadow plays" and the comic monologues got their start.According
to Salis: "The Chat Noir is the most extraordinary cabaret in the
world. You rub shoulders with the most famous men of Paris, meeting
there with foreigners from every corner of the world."Le Chat Noir
