Cabaret de L’Enfer:

The Café (or Cabaret) de L’Enfer was a Hell themed, 19th century Café in Paris.

Supposedly upon approaching the doors, which were double and wooden with a gaping devils mouth baring its fangs looming from above, a doorsman clad in a Satan costume would bellow: “Enter and be damned!”
Once inside patrons would sit at small black tables, under a low, arched ceiling with plaster cast demons reaching down at them, their faces screaming and snarling.
The wait staff and bar tenders would be dressed in apt attire and would serve drinks with dangerous and devilish names.
