Top sights in Paris
Opened in 1889, the Moulin Rouge remains one of Paris' most legendary spots. But what is it about this cabaret that has awed so many - even inspiring a hit Hollywood movie? Here are five facts about its sensational beginnings that made history.
This cheeky dance is synonymous with the Moulin Rouge, whose dancers elevated it to an art form, attracting visitors from across the world.
Immortalized on the Moulin Rouge’s iconic poster, La Goulue was the star of the cabaret from the very beginning. The venue owes its early runaway success to her outrageous antics.
Even the Prince of Wales visited the Moulin Rouge at the height of its popularity. Recognizing him in the crowd, La Goulue famously screamed, "Hey, Wales, the champagne's on you!"
The elephant from the movie really existed. It was so big that a staircase ran up its leg and a hidden stage was in its stomach, housing exclusive performances for male audiences.
Scandal was commonplace, but no performance caused as much furore as an Egyptian-themed dance in 1907, resulting in a riot after two female dancers shared an amorous kiss.
True to its roots, the Moulin Rouge's performances remain racy – though always tasteful, of course – and thus may not be suitable for children. While children above the age of six are allowed in, some parents may prefer to treat themselves to an adults-only night out and find a babysitter for the evening.
As a high-class venue, the Moulin Rouge expects visitors to come smartly dressed. A jacket and tie for men is appreciated, while shorts, sports clothing, and sneakers are not allowed.
Although it is necessary to reserve your tickets for the show and dinner, tables are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. It's worth arriving early to score a good table near the stage to best admire the spectacular dances, lavish costumes, and elaborate sets.

What people are saying about Moulin Rouge
Overall, we were really pleased we booked this excursion. The visit to the Eiffel Tower really was a flying one so if you want to explore the area a little more, I’d recommend a separate visit there. The food and wine once at the Tower was really disappointing though. We weren’t expecting gourmet standard, given that it was part of a package, but edible would have sufficed! Even the bread had a chemically taste to it. However, the boat cruise was just perfect and we had the most incredible sunset which made it all the more special! As for the Moulin Rouge, it was certainly an experience and one that we are pleased we did but it really is the most bizarre show I’ve ever seen…a must see! It was a lovely bonus to be driven back to our hotel at the end of the evening too!
The show was great! Very fun and campy. We had awesome seats and met some very nice people sitting next to us. We really had a great evening. The process before the doors opened was a bit confusing. We got “in line” in a section of the theatre and was then led to another section before we made it to the doors of the actual theatre. From there we were led to our table. Champagne was brought over immediately. Not sure how we got the seats we did or how we got in as early as we did, but it worked out well and we were very happy.
My husband and me really enjoyed the show. We didn't liked that you were seated on a table with 5 other people and these tables don't give the space for 6 persons. My husband also didn't had the best view all the time as the tall guy in front always moved his head too much. My advice: reach there really early and make sure that you'll get a front seat.
We were pleased to pick from the available menu options, and were able to easily add a cheese plate a la carte during dinner (parfait inbetween your main and desert!). Feathers and legs for days! Our friends all decided to also purchase dinner & tickets after we said we were going :)
Getting in the doors was very unfair. We were all hearded in like cows to one enormous room. It did not matter if you stood in line an hour before showtime in order to get a good space, they pack you all in a big room and everyone lost their places. Bery unfair!!
