Some Curious Facts about the Moulin Rouge
Built in 1889 by the Spanish businessman Josep Oller, the most famous cabaret in the world is now one of the icons of the Belle Epoque. One of the most popular entertainment venues in France nowadays, the Moulin Rouge is still one of the icons of the French capital and one of the most visited spots in the city.
Did you know the Moulin Rouge currently employs over 80 full-time performers? The cabaret is nearly always full as, in total, around 600,000 people visit it every year. For a venue with 850 seats, this means it’s almost at full capacity every night.
Other curious facts: did you know the Moulin Rouge was the first electric building in Paris? Or that following a devastating fire in 1915, it was closed for six years and reopened in 1921, just after the end of the First World War? Undoubtedly, a building full of anecdotes.
