Folies, Trévise

In 1869, a French cabaret, opens as the Folies Trévise.

The name was the word "folies", derived from the Latin word for "leaves" (foliae), connoting the idea of an outdoors entertainment venue, combined with the name of one of the adjacent streets, the "rue Trevise". (It was on the intersection of the rue Richter and the rue Trevise.) Unfortunately, the Duc de Trevise, a prominent nobleman, did not want people to think that he was associated with a bawdy dance hall. As a result, it was renamed the Folies Bergère on 13 September 1872, after another nearby street, the rue Bergère.
