    Moulin Rouge

    Moulin Rouge
    This structure is an icon of Paris, a munument to a sordid and sexy past - possibly an excellent representation of the lady, Paris, as a whole.

    Despite being amongst the flashing lights and gaudy colours of this street, the Boulevard de Clichy, the red vanes of the windmill are still clear to anyone wandering down the street.

    Moulin Rouge obviously translates to Red Windmill, and has had a very vivid and interesting history. The recent hit movie of the same name has rekindled interest in this sight.

    Unless you go inside for one of the famous cabarets, there's not a huge amount to do. You can look at it, but that's about it. :) It's worth having a look at it in passing, but make sure you have other plans for the area - after seeing this I suggest a walk through the red light district and up to Montmartre and Sacre-Coeur.

    I’m not sure if this site should be here or as a tourist trap. Well…Moulin Rouge - so famous place, so famous cabaret. I didn’t expect I could see the world as it was decades ago here, but I had hope that I could find some atmosphere of those days. And here it is - small building and little red mill. Nothing else. I spent quite time here and tried to find any reason why people come here. And I didn’t. I couldn’t imagine how it looked like before. I felt disappointed and cheated. And then I started to laugh. Obviously, I was here too. Looking for the same thing as others - for lost time…

    Moulin Rouge - well, I suppose you have to go see it, just to make sure it's really there, after you have heard so much about it. I haven't seen the shows yet, and i don't think I ever will... but I remember some VT members (Agbat maybe?) saying they are really good: very classy in their own way.

    Of course, the Moulin Rouge ! Definitely a site to see in person.
    I had the opportunity for a front seat to the event, which proved to be a little uncomfortable at first, considering I did not have a full view of the show, but a full view of the dancers! Preshow consisted of music while you had dinner and danced. The food was good. The stag rolled out to my leg and the show began. Mid-show, the stage rolled back and what was originally the dance floor opened up to a large water tank which rose to contain a snake.

    The Moulin Rouge is famous for the can-can dancing. Located in the area near Pigalle (which is at the bottom of the hill that is the Montmartre section), many tourists take in a show of dancing in the evening there or nearby.

    Fantastic caberet show and half a bottle of champagne included in the price of a ticket which is 500 francs each. In the red light district, so watch your belongings and prepare to see some of the seedier side of Paris along the road.

    Nothing to describe I think. Stangers know this place much better than french people. ;-)

    You can book your night at the Moulin Rouge here (web site in english ) :

    Moulin Rouge is actually of nothing special but I think it was cool to go see it anyway. It's also near Sacré Coeur so you can go visit two monuments at one time. Also very near a metro station.

    I did not go and see a show here, I just passed the building. The shows I believe cost in the region of 60 euro per person.

    Located in the Pigalle area of Paris.

    Moulin Rouge is one of the most famous night club. I haven't been there but you can expect nice and nude ladies dancing. And expensive drinks.

    I decided to put another picture up of the Moulin Rouge, but now you can see the whole nightclub, and some of the neighbouring companies in the red-light district of Paris.

    Moulin Rouge

    The legendary Parisian cabaret was founded in 1889. The French Cancan was created there.
    There are two shows each evening, one at 19.00 hrs and one at midnight.

    Moulin Rouge

    This is probably the best known night club in the world. Paintings, movies and songs are made about the Moulin Rouge.
