Cabaret (Creole: Kabarè) is a municipality in the Arcahaie Arrondissement, in the Ouest Department of Haiti. It has 63,450 inhabitants. During his dictatorship François Duvalier renamed it Duvalierville in 1961 and a megalomaniacal construction project was begun. The project failed, but the name was kept until Duvalier's successor, his son Jean-Claude Duvalier, fled the country in 1986.

Titanyen and Lafiteau are located in the municipality, eight kilometres from the main town.
