Our tips for Moulin Rouge

  • The early bird gets the worm. Queues before each performance line the street and the Moulin Rouge Musical theatre ticket system operates on a first-come, first-served basis, so for the best seats, arrive at least half an hour early.
  • Photo-ops are limited. The venue doesn’t take kindly to cameras, so be sure to keep yours away during your time here. A professional photographer will capture your awestruck faces throughout the night, although print copies do come at a pretty hefty price.
  • Dress to impress. The dress code for the iconic Moulin Rouge show is smart. So, avoid wearing shorts, flip-flops, and sportswear at all costs.

Good to know

Moulin Rouge means ‘red windmill’. This famous site got its name from the red windmill that once stood where the Moulin Rouge is now. The iconic red windmill replica atop the Moulin Rouge is another nod to the location’s history. It was rebuilt in 1915 after the site was destroyed by a fire. Reconstruction took six years, with the cabaret finally re-opening in 1921 following the end of the First World War.

The inspiration behind Baz Luhrman's award-winning film and works by famous artist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Moulin Rouge has been a perpetual Parisian icon since it first flung open its doors in 1889.

Besides the jigs and jives, the rich history, culture, and dazzling décor of this Paris attraction with its plush red velvet interiors and elegant chandeliers are sure to sweep you off your feet. Surviving two world wars, economic crises, and social turmoil, Moulin Rouge has stood the test of time.
For more than 125 years, its delightful mix of risqué choreography, awe-inspiring sets, and decked-out dancers lent a euphoric Parisian charm that cannot be replicated in the world of cabaret.
