Exotic Moulin Rouge

After I've seen the film I've always wanted to see the Moulin Rouge for real. I suppose it is not the same, but it was still awesome to stand in front of the real deal. Worthwhile seeing even if you just pass by.

Very pricey !!!

I must say I have never had the desire to see this show ... and with the current prices I don't believe I will be seeing it any time soon ....

Located in the seedy Pigalle area .... there isn't much to see and do besides the show here.

Be careful of scams and of pickpockets .. they work in teams here and will not hesitate to take your stuff.

We came took a couple of pics and looked at the prices ... we passed !!!!

The Moulin Rouge

The Moulin Rouge or red windmill first opened its doors to the public in October 1889. Its owners were Joseph Oller and Charles Zidler who described it as a temple of music and dance. The Moulin Rouge popularized the then outrageous can can dance.

One of the Moulin Rouge's most famous customers in its early years was artist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, who painted a number of famous Moulin Rouge scenes.

We did not go to see a show here, just looked at the windmill and the paintings of dancers in the entrance way.

Moulin Rouge

Is a world-famous cabaret theater, it opened their doors in 1889 and symbolizes the decadence of those years
The cabaret restaurant and a theater was famous for their shows, entrance are not cheap but I'm sure you will enjoy for the price you pay

The post-impressionist painter Toulouse-Lautrec immortalized the nightlife at the Moulin Rouge on his posters a striking red windmill adorns the facade

This legendary nightclub in the red light district of "Pigalle quartier" is something you'd never miss! the area is crowded with tourist than any part of Paris

Moulin Rouge

I've never had the money or the inclination to see the show at the Moulin Rouge, but I do think that it is a must when visiting Paris, to go there at night and see it all lit up so beautifully. Just take the metro to any of the stops along the Blvd de Clichy and walk west till you see it. It really isn't hard to find.

Moulin Rouge

Though this is one of the most touristic spots in paris, it is located in the red light district. No problems with that, but it looks as a grimmy cabaret in a nasty quarter.
We had to jostle to take a picture at the right place, and to be honest... don't get your hopes up too high of the fake red windmill.
Slill, it's a must see after all, if only for the picture :-)

Moulin Rouge

The Moulin Rouge (French for "red mill") is a cabaret in Paris. It is located on Boulevard de Clichy in the redlight district of the Quartier Pigalle, in the 18th arrondissement.

It was opened on 6 October 1889. On the roof of the cabaret is a large red imitation windmill. The Moulin Rouge is a symbol of the bohemian. It attracts thousands of tourists and is imitated worldwide. The early years of the Moulin Rouge are characterized by extravagant shows, inspired by the circus, and attractions that are still known as Petomane (see Joseph Pujol). There are also shows with sexy dancers.

The cabaret was the inspiration for many paintings by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec poster designs by including Jules Cheret. Many books and movies are set in and around the nightclub. In 1940 a feature film Moulin Rouge with Josephine Baker, and in 2001 Moulin Rouge!, With Ewan McGregor and Nicole Kidman in the lead roles.

Surprisingly good !!

We typically try to avoid tourist traps but in this case we just couldn't help ourselves. We could hardly have been more surprised. The show was really first rate. While not as big and over the top as a Vegas show, the quality was definately there. Can can dancers, lots' of feathers and sequens and a juggling drummer thrown in ! We'll go back again.

Stop by to take a picture and move on

You can easily miss Moulin Rouge if you do not keep your eyes open and if somebody does not point it to you. Since the place is loaded with history, you have to stop by and take a picture on your way to Sacre Coeur :)
I could not stop myself imagining Toulouse Lautrec walking to the place and chatting with the Can-Can girls.

The world famous Moulin Rouge

Moulin Rouge translates as "Red Mill/Windmill" in English. No doubt everyone has heard or seen pictures or ads or movies of this world famous place.

The first cabarets were held at 1889 ("Moulin Rouge"). It still has the glamour and colourfullness - lots of beautiful girls, feathers, make-up, high-heeled shoes, fancy clothes and hats and much more. This has been existing long before we even knew about Las Vegas.

Today one can choose from several different shows and show-dinner combinations. According to my knowledge a glass or a half bottle of champagne is always included in the ticket price, as well as the dinner and the show.

The prices are around 150 euros per person. Please read more the parts that interests you from Moulin Rouge's informative web pages.
