Moulin Rouge Tips (71)

Moulin Rouge: The one and only

I saw a show in Feb. 2015 at the Moulin Rouge. We paid about $170 USD per person, which included the 2-hour show, and half a bottle of champagne. I would say it great value for what we got - an amazing performance, great atmosphere in a one of a kind venue which is world famous. The acrobatic acts were amazing, and I also enjoyed the songs and the cabaret.

My only complaint is that the show is a little bit sexist in the sense that it is targeting a 'male gaze.' All the female performers are wearing thong-type bottoms which fully expose their buttocks, and most of them are completely topless as well. The men however, remained fully clothed for the entire show. Just seems a little unfair to me - having said that, the show doesn't come off as erotic or sexual in any way. It really felt like performers dancing, and their body parts just happen to be showing. I was still very impressed by the talent and choreography that went into the show.

I recommend booking your tickets as much as possible in advance. I went on a Monday night, and they filled up. There are lots of places in the area to grab dinner or food before the show. You can also reserve dinner with your ticket purchase, but it can cost an extra $100. Be prepared to spend even more if you're going on a holiday (ie: Valentine's Day)

Dress Code Dress up a bit for this event, business casual or even casually but dressed up with earrings or decent shows. On the e-ticket, it says that those dressed inappropriately will not be allowed to enter.

Moulin Rouge: The old icon

No, we didn't enter!

However, more than a club with expensive drinks and naked women in elaborated shows, this is a city's icon, almost as Eiffel tower, impossible to pass by without a comment or a picture.

Moulin Rouge: Moulin Rouge

The Moulin Rouge is known the world over for their famous "Can-Can" girls, this place is a must if you want to just feel a bit of old Paris.

I visited Moulin Rouge on my first visit to Paris, and although quite expensive, the show was pretty good.

After visiting Paris as many times as I have, I would say, skip this place. There are plenty of other places you can spend your money on.

Moulin Rouge: A temple of music and dance

When the music hall was opened in 1889, its owners, Oller and Zidler, claimed that it would become a temple of music and dance... A lot of people would agree, because this home of the can-can dance still offers a spectacular musical dance entertainment. However, the others would say that the tickets are overpriced... Perhaps one day I'll see it for myself.

Dress Code Neat, no jeans or trainers

Moulin Rouge: A Night at the Cabaret

I realize there are many cabarets to choose from, but when you may only be in Paris once, how can you miss the most famous? This was a dream of my daughter's, so I went for it, and was certainly glad, as it was a terrific show. First of all, my daughter's wallet had been stolen that day, so she was down in the dumps, and this really did the trick. They do grab your camera from you, so don't have it out when you go in. We were seated at a table with two young men who had obviously been to the show before, and they may have been more entertaining than the show. Each act, all the way to the can can was wonderful, though, and I would do it again.
I did get my tickets on-line, which came with 1/2 bottle of champagne each; I noticed the men at our table had to pay for their champagne, so I think we got a pretty good deal, and it makes a difference which site you go through. We went to the late show, which was also cheaper. This was the site I found to be the cheapest at the time:

Moulin Rouge: Still not sure a tourist trap or nightlife tip



Well, when I was doing some research, all the vt´s agreed to put it into tourist traps, so we did not enter, but we passed by, during our night visit to Montmartre .....

I guess I would not pay 100 Euros for the show .... each person....

Moulin Rouge: Moulin Rouge

Actually, I just saw the movie on DVD. At first it was a bit boring, but just when I wanted to give up, it became quite impressive despite the very thin story.

See the website below for more information on the real Moulin Rouge in Paris.

Moulin Rouge: Moulin rouge

Went to moulin rouge tonight, check your jacket is 2 euro so try to do without one, otherwise they will let you take it in just not on the chair back. We didn't have the dinner just the show at 9pm but drinks seemed reasonable at 12 euro extra. Don't worry about the dress regulation, it's not strict, I was living out of a backpack so wore jeans and casual shoes with no problem, would have been nice to dress for it though. Show was fantastic, don't miss it.

Dress Code As above
