Classical theater for revues and light entertainment

Chat Noir have developed but is keeping the "old style"! Serving at the tables makes sure you dont stand in line all the time, very good view to the show, and a very good show conducted by well known actor Bjørn Sundquits! A great start at the evening!

We saw Herborg Kråkevik and she was brilliant in her show. Varied and very competent. She is one of my favourite artists and this's show only strengthened my impression. Chat Noir is though a theatre that needs an upgrade. My chair was falling apart and I had to sit still not to break it. The restrooms are also old and... More

It has been around for "hundred-and-some" years and has been true to its mission. There are several bars in the building and refreshments available for purchase while the show is... More

Went to see A Chorus Line with greath expectations. Yes the ambiance is good in this theatre, but the music is just too load and ruins the experience. Both bars should be open and wardrobe be free. An easy thing to adjust.

I have been several times at the Chat Noir. All the times I really enjoyed the atmosphere, the carpets, the sound of people and when entering the showroom, it must be just like Paris in old times. Sitting by the small tables, with the lights on, the employees walking around in silence, serving whatever we ask for.......unlimited :-). The show,... More
