The Moulin Rouge Paris

7 posts in this topic

When I was younger people used to joke about The Moulin Rouge in Paris being a topless bar.

 

So the question is is that the case? is it worth going there or is it a waste of time?  What is that area like? for punting?

There are plenty of "American Bars" in the area. These are expensive joints.

 

Moulin Rouge has a very slick floor show, which may include topless ladies, but when I went a few years ago it was quite respectable. A lot of business entertaining goes on there and the clientèle are mixed and all ages. It is not at all seedy.

The Moulin Rouge has a cabaret show with topless ladies (as do Lido/Folies Bergere) with dinner packages and so on - it's chockful of US tourist groups and very tame indeed.

The rest of Pigalle is replete with clip joints and a few equally tame sex shops - it's an overpriced tourist trap and once you've seen the windmill (and the sex museum is meant to be OK, if that's your kind of thing) it's best avoided.

I've not been to Moulin Rouge but I went to the Crazy Horse. That was actually very good. Some of the girls that work in it are not exactly bad looking either. We didn't book seats but because it was not busy the usher found us a place to sit.

Watch out for pickpockets, especially on the Metro.

I agree with Amy it is a serious tourist trap and way over priced for what you get.

I agree with the rest here, the whole areas a tourist trap, the Windmills expensive, but apparently good.

 

I made the mistake of staying in Pigalle for a long weekend there In 2003, to watch the end of the Tour de France, I'd only days before come home from Iraq, so went a little crazy on the beer, and spent to much money in the clip joints, thinking back, I could of called an escort for a overnight and saved money rather than spend it in the clip joints lol. :)
