Le Chat Noir was a nineteenth-century entertainment establishment, in the bohemian
Montmartre district of Paris. It opened on 18 November 1881 at 84 Boulevard de Rochechouart by
the impresario Rodolphe Salis, and closed in 1897 not long after Salis' death (much to the
disappointment of Picasso and others who looked for it when they came to Paris for the Exposition
in 1900). One of his descendants reopens the iconic establishment, this time at Miami, to bring the
best of the arts and music to this town.
