Moulin Rouge Paris- the spiritual birthplace of the modern form of can-can dance, and the introduction of cabarets in Europa. Founded back in 1889, marked with a red windmill on the roof, the Moulin Rouge is today a world famous tourist attraction, where thousands of people every single day stands in line, to go inside and watch a modern version of the original shows.
Born the same year as the Eiffel Tower, in a a period of peace and optimism marked by the industrial progress, when Montmartre was a bucolic atmospheric village mixed with festivities and artists, pleasure and beauty. Moulin Rouge was made by its creator Joseph Oller as a place for the rich to come and be entertained in a fashionable district, while rubbing shoulders with workers, artists, middle classes, businessmen and everything in between.
The Moulin Rouge quickly became a huge success, due to revolutionary architecture, champagne festivals, The Can-Can and famous dancers. A recipe that properly will work for any nightclub all over the world even today.
The Red Mill is something very iconic for Montmartre and as bloggers a “must-take-shot” in the area. Today the part of Montmartre, Pigalle, where Mouling Rouge is located has become the red light district of Paris, offering you, how do we put it, well things you didn’t know you could buy for putting places you don’t what to think of putting them, a more adult part of night life, as you find them in any big city in the world. All this is surrounded at Boulevard de Clichy, but if you walk a little away from this, you can find some pretty decent restaurants and cafes to have a bite or a drink.
