I was very apprehensive about going here, because I thought it was going to be a tourist trap, but my wife insisted. I am so glad she did. Sure it's touristy, they made a film about it. But it's very well done, and very entertaining. It's not cheap, but it's something that you should do once while your in Paris. It's worth it just to see the Toulouse Lautrec posters that are in the lobby. They are incredible wors of art
Dress Code Jackets aren't required for men, but you want to get a little dressed up.
When I see sth about Moulin Rouge I always remind the film. It was very successful for a musical. For me it's a better stuff than Chicago that have received Oscar..
Anyway for an expensive experience of a nite life, I can suggest you to go for Moulin Rouge..
Mes nuits à Paris ne sont pas de folie... If You want to spend a good night in Paris I'm not the right person to tell you what to do... cause at night I use to stay at the Hotel... (in the Hotel there's always something to do...). But I can talk You about the 'Moulin Rouge'... there You may spend a beautiful night, seeing beautiful girls, drinking good champagne, eating.... well... good things... and stay without Your money (about 1000 FF for the dinner and 600 FF for the show; something like 230 USD, 160 UK Pounds, 52000 Portuguese escudos). Is it to much?... it depends of the point of view...
Built in 1885, it was transformed in a dance room in 1900. At this moment only the red 'Moulin' outside the building is original.
The Cancan, what we sometimes see even in American 'Western movies', as born here.
You'll have to ask someone else the details, but I thought I'd share some daytime photos of this landmark. The "ladies" are on the wall above the box office. "Moulin" is French for windmill, hence the one on the outside:)
Very famous through out the world. Topic of several films.
A Parisian does not go to Moulin Rouge, which is focused on tourists, excepted if he goes with a guest or if he is invited. I was invited by my boss, so I was unable to escape.
The spectacle is mainly dance and song on the traditional Paris for tourists with beautiful topless girls. Only one original act : a ventriloquist who makes speaking French the Japanese tourists who come on the stage.
No French Cancan : the only thing which would be interesting there.
Rather expensive (125 €, 140 €, 155 € with dinner, 79 & 89 € without dinner)
2 shows : one at 7:30Pm, the second at 11:00PM.
The dinner is poor with a quick service.
Dress Code Casual
We were so excited to catch a show at the Moulin Rouge, until we saw the entrance fee! So, we settled for a picture of the outside and went to find cheaper entertainment.

Dress Code Have To Dress Up A Bit!
Everybody has heard about it: that famous old brothel/nightclub. Especially after the introduction of the song and movie it was in the picture again.
It is a very commercial happening, that´s true, but I found worth every penny of it. Some of the best dancers are in this spectacularly sparkling show. Humor, acrobatics, nice women and a lot of dance and rythm are being passed in review. A simple bottle of champagne is an option and drinks are nicely served at your (reserved!) table during the spectacle. Even though the show is interesting for anyone, it still has a naughty flair...
Dress Code Something nice would be good to fit in with the surroundings. That means not something very casual!
By the way: cameras are not allowed... (too bad)
