Founded in 1889, this cabaret is known the world over for its famous French cancan, forever immortalized in the paintings of French artist Toulouse-Lautrec. Today, its famous red windmill still proudly overlooks the Pigalle district. Dreamed up by 1930s cabaret singer Mistinguette, the extravaganzas performed here have magnificent sets, luxurious costumes and a great line-up of international dancers. Treat yourself to a wonderful meal and a great evening's entertainment in one of Paris ' most famous attractions. Formal attire is required.
it was a great experience i had so much fun. it was very mezmerizing the lights the dancers the everything. it was pricey but totally worth it.the champange was nice. being a younger visiter at 22 i still enjoyed it. it was my favorit part of my trip to paris. I plan to go back in the fall of 06 and that will be my first stop and my last.
this place is definitely overrated and over priced (Over $100/person which included 1/2 bottle champagne). The staff however was friendly, which is unusual for Paris. I caught myself yawning a couple of times. If you would like to go to a show, choose a musical instead
I love the whole atmosphere, the lights the colours, the people! What a show, I would definatly recommend this to anyone who appreciates fine dinning and entertainment. Its not just for the middle aged or older, nor is it just for the men, I am a 20 year old female and it was great
Moulin Rouge was fantastic. The show was extremely entertaining, and totally worth the 100 Euros. A bit pricey, but you don't experience Paris until you've been here. I would recommend to 18+ years, it is a bit risque...and the neighborhood isn't the best. However, don't let that prevent you from going. It is WELL worth it....
The best of the night club shows, but like the others overpriced, and catering to mostly large groups. Still there are at least some elements of the Paris of bygone years. I would not advise to burn your money on any of them, but if you are intent on seeing at least one show while in Paris, this is the best one.
I thought this show was a great time. We went to the latest show, which is the cheapest, but it is by no means cheap.. it was about 80 euros. We waited for a very very long time to walk through the doors, but once we did we were escorted to the very front table. The show was entertaining, the only downside was that the Moulin Rouge is not in a good part of town. Going to the 11 pm show meant getting done at 1 am, in which the subway was no longer in service. There were pimps and prostitutes everywhere which was very unnerving. If you decide to fork over the money, pay the extra money and go to the early show. If you do go to the late show (which does not include dinner) make sure you have your plans of getting back to the hotel planned out. Trust me, you don't want to be standing on the street corner waiting for a taxi cab. The dancers all in all are really not that talented, but it was entertaining nonetheless. Overall the experience was great and if I ever return to Paris I would definitely want see the Moulin Rouge again.
We opted for the dinner and a show package deal. We should have run away when the bus loads of tourists from China showed up. After standing in a very long line, we were shuttled in through the gift shop. We were told we had to check our coats (for a fee)and cameras (understandable) and buy a program. At that point, we didn't care because we were so excited! After being seated and ordering we were given a bottle of champagne. A singer and band started up, and the night seemed like it was made for romance and a show. Sadly, the champagne and band were the only redeeming part of the night. Dinner was inedible, and the show was so bad that it was actually funny... and I'm not refering to the ventriloquist. He wasn't funny. The dancing was campy and the women, although all very beautiful, were bored. The can-can that we were so excited about turned out to be dominated by cheesy men doing the splits. Two hours was insufferable. If we had been able to find the waiter, we would have paid and left. The bill was a whopping 350 euros. We turned down the pictures for sale (we could have had a mini picture of us dangling from a key-chain as a momento) and then filtered out back through the gift shop as another 500 poor souls were shuttled in. Paris is one of the most romantic and beautiful cities in the world. 350 euros would have made for an extraordinary night out in different circumstances. I'm kicking myself for being such a chump.
