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
Did a photoshoot for a surprise engagement. There were some last minute changes but everything still went very smoothly. Beks is an amazing photographer and would definitely have her do another shoot for us. We ran late to the shoot and she still stayed for almost the entire hour and did multiple different locations and poses. We LOVE how the photos came out and everyone we share them with say they are gorgeous. Highly recommend for anyone that is doing a surprise proposal or anyone that just wants to have some nice photos of your vacation!
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.
Alain was a true professional, made sure that he kept the session easy-going and comfortable. We felt like a friend was taking our pictures. Due to the inability to secure a large enough Uber ride to get to the Eiffel Tower in a timely manner, we improvised to the surrounding area and couldn't be happier with the results. Highly recommend using his services.
Moulin rouge is definitely a must while in Paris even though it is quite expensive. The dinner was okay even though the service a little abrupt but thats the french for you. The show never ceases to amaze me and the costumes are spectacular. A good night out make sure you can sleep in the next day!
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 :)
