VIDEO. “What will the Champs-Élysées be like without the Lido?” : employees mobilized against the end of their cabaret


After the announcement by the Accor hotel group of the end of the Lido dinner shows, employees are mobilizing to preserve this institution.

It is a legendary Parisian nightlife cabaret that is about to disappear.

On Thursday May 12, the Accor hotel group announced the closure of the Lido as it exists today, in a dinner-show formula, to become a musical performance hall.

Having become the owner of the hall last February, the management of the group had nevertheless "committed to maintaining the activity of the Lido as we have known it for 75 years now", assures the Synptac-CGT union.

“What will the Champs-Élysées be like without the Lido?

asks Laura Bonucci, seamstress at the Lido for almost 35 years, still reeling from this announcement.

"It's part of the heritage of the Champs-Élysées," she adds.

“We all know each other in this company, there are some who have been there for 40 years, assures Ludovic Herveou, Synptac CGT union representative, at the heart of negotiations with management.

The goal is for everyone to benefit from it.

It will be complicated because in front of us there is a big group.

But we are not going to give up.

As long as there is light and we can discuss, we will discuss”.

A meeting is scheduled for May 19 to try to find a solution between the two parties.
