Join Moulin Rouge as we celebrate over 125 years
of festive experiences, elegance and enchantment!
Since 1889, the Moulin Rouge has been standing as the one French venue where the emotions and effervescence of spectacular Parisian celebrations are lived and shared.
Popular cabaret when it first opened, emblematic music hall during the Années Folles (the Roaring Twenties), stage of many French and international artists… Through its many stories, Moulin Rouge has always adapted its entertainment to the trends in partying without ever losing its authenticity.
Today, in addition to a concert and clubbing venue as well as a cocktail bar, Moulin Rouge and its 80 performers present Féerie, a colourful and spectacular revue show created by talented artists and craftsmen. Costume designers, feather makers, shoemakers & production designers have created a symphony of colors that capture the essence, cultural and historical significance of the Moulin Rouge. The sumptuous settings with sparkling unique designs and constantly refreshed themes provide a richness of authentic and royal elements that make a bold and dramatic statement.
The iconic red windmill of the Moulin Rouge never goes dark and stands as a beacon for all things Parisian and a strong symbol of France.
The arrival of new Chef David Le Quellec symbolizes a perfect alliance of the breathtaking show’s elegance with fine cuisine specially created for the 600,000 spectators who attend every year from all over the world. “Our goal is to deliver a haute cuisine that expresses and continues the image of the sophisticated and Parisian nightlife which has been characteristic of the Moulin Rouge since 1889”, Jean-Jacques Clerico, president, Moulin Rouge.
The richness of the brand’s universe as well as the diversity of its vintage imagery makes the Moulin Rouge a natural partner for prospective licensees.
