Chose the right ticketThe performance Féerie takes place at the Moulin Rouge twice a day, the earlier performance starts at 9 pm and the later one at 11 pm, admission is always one hour before the start of this spectacle. The Standard ticket is offered with and without a drink, the difference in price is hardly noticeable. Although the VIP ticket is almost twice as expensive, it includes preferred seating as well as surprises.
Dinner at Moulin RougeIf you want to round off the unique experience at the Moulin Rouge, the Dinner & Show Evening Ticket is ideal. This ticket includes a 3-course menu and a small bottle of champagne, wine or other beverage. Of course, there is also a VIP package, where surprises and preferred seating await you. The dinner starts at 7 pm and is accompanied by the Moulin Rouge Orchestra, followed by the regular 9 pm performance.
Follow the dress codeA visit to the Moulin Rouge simply requires an elegant attire, which is also mandatory. You should therefore follow the Parisian cabaret dress code, which is equivalent to business casual. The gentlemen wear a jacket, shirt and pants, the ladies a costume, trouser suit with blouse or dress. In shorts, flip-flops and sneakers you may be denied entry!
Order drinks before the performanceTo ensure that the audience can enjoy the show undisturbed, guests are not served during the performance. Therefore, before the show starts, you should order the desired drinks, it is also advisable to order a bottle right away. We recommend choosing a ticket that includes a small bottle of a drink of your choice when making your reservation.
Plan your way homeIn order to enjoy a relaxed journey home, you should plan your return in advance, especially for the later performance, which starts at 11 pm. The spectacle ends around 1 am, but it can take up to an hour to leave the building. Keep in mind that there is hardly any public transportation left in Paris at this time of night, so getting back to the center will take at least 45 minutes, whereas a cab will be twice as fast.
Book a specialMoulin Rouge also offers unforgettable moments for New Year, Valentine's Day and Christmas. The Valentine's Day special takes place on February 13th and 14th, while the Christmas special can be booked from December 19th to January 3rd. Besides delicious dinner, drinks, surprises and of course the unforgettable show Féerie await you.

A show of extravagance

The Moulin Rouge has been a staple of Western pop culture for over 130 years and has since appeared in numerous books, movies, television series and songs. The show Féerie takes place daily, offering good vibes and mesmerizing stage art, which is characterized by the Can-can, a fast French dance - a celebration of colors since 1889.

The past is not at rest

The Moulin Rouge is certainly the most archetypal French vaudeville, founded in 1889 at the height of the Belle Époque by Joseph Oller and Charles Zidler, and still offers its guests music, dance and drama. Initially, it was used for revues, operettas, and cinema performances, followed by shows that emulated circus performances. At the same time, acrobatics and clowning, along with showgirls and dancers, were part of the performances, which at first served only to entertain wealthy citizens, the founders of vaudeville. The can-can, in which the dancers perform high kicks, became a trademark of the Moulin Rouge. Jane Avril and La Goulue were two famous performers at the vaudeville in Montmartre who were particularly celebrated for their can-can, but over the years celebrities such as Edith Piaf, Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald also performed here.

The stunning show Féerie

Every day, the audience is captivated by 60 scantily clad dancers in the two-hour performance Féerie. They experience multiple settings, ranging from a pirate ship and Paris to a circus. Although the show has been on its schedule since 1999, it is sold out almost every day. Besides the talent of the dancers, the 1000 colorful costumes, designed and made over the years by in-house tailors and created in cooperation with select Parisian ateliers, are also very impressive. The costumes are elaborately hand decorated with beads, sequins and feathers and usually weigh several kilos.

Superstition starts with F

In 1963, the cabaret "Frou-Frou" was developed, which went so well that subsequent shows would also start with "F"."Fascination", "Fantastic", "Formidable" and of course "Féerie" followed.

The red mill

The Moulin Rouge is located in the Montmartre district, which once had a rural character. Surrounded by 30 windmills that ground grain, artists once settled in this mountain village. Today, only the red mill on the roof of the Moulin Rouges reminds us of its former surroundings, which is even illuminated at night. However, the beautiful view of Paris from the city hill has been preserved!

Doriss Girls and Doriss Dancers

To pursue her passion for ballet, Stuttgart-based Dorothea Haug traveled to Paris in the 1950s and became known as "Miss Doris". The dance group she founded, "Les Doris Girls", which consisted of four dancers, auditioned at the Moulin Rouge, whereupon she was hired as a choreographer. Over the next 40 years, she choreographed the can-can dance shows that made the Moulin Rouge so famous. Due to a spelling mistake in the first advertising posters, the Doris Girls became the Doriss Girls, which is why the can-can dancers of the Moulin Rouge are still called Doriss Girls and Doriss Dancers today.

63,400 gallon of champagne

The reputation of the Moulin Rouge has changed over the years, but the posters of the painter Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec still adorn the walls. During a boisterous evening, it's easy to fall for the nostalgia of the Belle Epoque, sometimes drinking a glass or two of champagne. The Moulin Rouge serves up to 800 bottles of champagne per evening, annually consuming 63,000 gallons (240,000 liters) of champagne, making it the largest champagne buyer in France.

Get closer to the Moulin Rouge

The Bar à Bulles is located in the same complex as the Moulin Rouge and serves mezze and tapas. In addition, brunch is also offered on weekends, but due to high demand, reservations should be made in advance. Via the Bar à Bulles you can reach the roof terrace of the Moulin Rouge TOIT and thus also the famous red mill. Here cocktails and exquisite tapas can be eaten under fruit trees in a cozy atmosphere. On weekends, La Machine du Moulin Rouge, one of the largest clubs in Europe, opens its dance floors. You can party on several levels until the early hours of the morning.
