Moulin Rouge Show

One of our plan is to go watch the Mouling Rouge show in Paris. Is there only 1 show or there are a few to choose? If there are numerous show, which is the one to watch?

Is it ok if I buy the tickets when I reach Paris? Or is it cheaper to buy online? I saw some websites selling the tickets?

Merci.

There's a early and a late show. Both shows can be reserved with 3 different priced dinners. You can also have reservations for just the shows, where you are allowed to enter after dinner is served.

You can make reservations on their website which also with have all the information you ask.

Or you can book a more expensive tour package at Cityrama, Paris Vision, etc. which will include transportation and can be combined with other sightseeing the same night like the Eiffel Tower or Seine cruise.

2. Re: Moulin Rouge Show

We went to the Moulin Rouge show a couple of weeks ago. We booked with Paris Vision before we went to Paris. It cost about 5 euros more than booking it yourself. The best part of that was when we left the show- a bus took us right back to our metro stop, a block from our apartment. It was fairly late, and it was nice to sit back and be driven home. We went to the early show and had the dinner. I would recommend skipping the dinner and just going to the show. It wasn't terrible food, but it was a sort of mass produced bland menu. We booked with the tour company because the night we wanted to go, it was already filled up, but there were still available tickets with Paris Vision. Have a great time!

First show starts at 9pm and the second show at 11pm. Although the 2nd show doesn't normally start until about 20 past or something. The show runs for 1hr and45min. Second show is usually about 10euros cheaper but there's no dinner.

Dinner and show is very expensive and you're probably better to go to a restaurant in the area instead of eating there. Arrive early cos seats are not reserved and generally it's busy. The bigger tip the usher gets the better seat he gives. Unfortunate but true!

Hi there,

Have just come back from Paris: You can either go to the 11pm performance with show only and half a bottle of champagne or go to the 7pm performance which includes dinner and half a bottle of champagne, which is of course much more expensive.

We booked through a website called divento.com and the lady there told us that the food wasn't that good and advised us on a great restaurant which was nearbye. So unless it's a special occassion or you think 11pm is too late for you, I would go to the show only performance. And Yes you should buy the tickets in advance as it is pretty well booked out all the time at the moment. In fact the Moulin Rouge itself had sold out of tickets but the agency we booked through had some, as it has its own allocation of places (which is sells at the same prices as the Moulin Rouge). They also booked us a taxi which is pretty essential since it's really difficult to get back to your hotel after the show, and the show is in quite a seedy area of Paris.

We also enjoyed a river cruise on the Seine while we were there and managed to get tickets to the opera. Bonne chance!

Two of us booked the dinner/show package with Euroscope. We were glad to reserve through them as transportation was included. There were four other people that the minivan picked up and dropped off. Not sure if the driver was joking or not but he claimed he'd see if he would get good seats for us and they were good-right up to the stage.

The restaurant is called Wepler it's a very traditional brasserrie on the place de Clichy, very lively with very traditional dishes. Excellent oysters and other typically French dishes like magret de canard (duck)

Don't have the phone number because the lady at divento booked it for us.

We went to Weplers too.Very nice food, and served with silver lids etc.The address is 14 place de Clichy (very close to Moulin Rouge) phone no. 0145225324. www.wepler.com. Had 3 course set menus for E26. Fish E18. Lovely crepe flambe E8.40.

One down side was that someone was smoking but you have to put up with that in Paris. We didn't book at Weplers but did get there early (6pm) and it was quiet

We had dinner there and then went to the 9pm show, where we were seated in an area for non-diners but right in the centre, plus the theatre is small and you can see fine from the back.

The two shows are at 9pm and 11pm!! It's only 7pm if you want dinner too. But because dinner is only available the first show it is often booked out.

Wepler restaurant is right outside the Place de Clichy restaurant, huge on the corner.....you can'tmiss it! Also in the area....

Le Cloche D'or, very close to Moulin. It is very typical french cuisine, cute and a great place to try snails.......the camembert de roti is amazing too!!

If you like Italian there's a yummy place around the corner called Chez Pepone.......it's more casual

Also a little further away, atleast 10 min walk is Paris Boheme.......it is delicious french food and a nice setting.......they're my recommendations from experience

Also to be sure you are not charged any booking fees why not phone up Moulin Rouge and make a booking???? Get the number from the website, maybe you can even book online. You don't pay until you are in there watching the show. Or if you want wait till you're in Paris and go in yourself during the day. If you do this you can definitely rule out watching the show on Fri or Sat........it gets booked out months in advance sometimes
