The Cabaret L'Ane Rouge (Red Donkey), was founded in 1889 in Paris. It was created by Gabriel Salis the brother of Rodolphe Salis, who was the founder of the celebrated Parisian Cabaret Chat Noir (Black Cat). The two brothers were significant rivals, competing for cabaret audiences.  It's not a coincidence that Rodolphe had red hair. His brother purposefully named his establishment the Red Donkey to poke fun of his brother.

In 1898, Gabriel Salis retired selling his cabaret Andhré Joyeux. It ran until it closed its doors in 1905.
