Some Lucid fans have asked why the bottle has cat eyes.

The idea of using the cat’s eyes came from the world’s first cabaret, called “Le Chat Noir,” which opened in Montmartre, Paris in 1881. “Le Chat Noir,” which translates to “The Black Cat,” was a bustling nightclub, artists’ salon, and music hall. People from all over the world relaxed at tables while drinking absinthe and watching a show on the stage.

Over a hundred years after its closure, Le Chat Noir remains famous not just for the cabaret but for its poster art.

And that poster art is the inspiration behind Lucid Absinthe’s cat eyes.
