You cannot comprehend the soul of Paris without visiting the Moulin Rouge. 600 thousand people annually visit the cabaret that gave the world striptease and cancan captured by Lautrec and Renoir. It's not easy to be among them: it is worth ordering online tickets at 1001guide.
The initial setting of the establishment that was founded in 1889 was truly extravagant: a huge dance floor, mirrors everywhere, elegant galleries, a garden with a huge elephant, and little donkeys. Nowadays, the Moulin Rouge looks less exotic (donkey rides offered to ladies are already in the past), but the columns are decorated with original posters of famous artists, and the stage is decorated with an aquarium filled with 1200 gallons of water.
The peerless French cancan is still the highlight of this enchanting Vegas-style night show. Guests are entertained by 100 dancers, acrobats and ventrologists. Each performance features over 1000 handmade costumes. One dancer's outfit is decorated with 230 meters of frills, weighs almost 5 kg and costs 5,000 euros.
The cabaret restaurant is one of the most popular in Paris. Usually dinner starts at 19:00 and revues at 21:00 and 23:00. By purchasing tickets online at 1001guide, you can arrive exactly at the specified time.
