"Moulin Rouge" is a cabaret in Paris, France.
The house was co-founded in 1889 by Charles-Joseph Zidler/Charles Zidler and Joseph Oller, who also owned the Paris Olympia. Close to Montmartre in the Paris district of Quartier Pigalle/Pigalle on Boulevard de Clichy in the 18ème arrondissement, Paris/18th arrondissement, it is marked by the red windmill on its roof. The closest métro station is Blanche (Paris Métro)/Blanche.
Moulin Rouge is best known as the spiritual birthplace of the modern form of the can-can dance. Originally introduced as a seductive dance by the courtesans who operated from the site, the can-can dance revue evolved into a form of entertainment of its own and led to the introduction of cabarets across Europe. Today, the Moulin Rouge is a tourist attraction, offering musical dance entertainment for visitors from around the world. The club's decor still contains much of the romance of fin de siècle France.More Moulin Rouge on Wikipedia.
