French for “Red Windmill,” the Moulin Rouge (marked by the red windmill on its roof) was co-founded by Charles Zidler and Joseph Oller in 1889. The Moulin Rouge is a cabaret in Paris, France that highlighted a Bohemian lifestyle of the Belle Epoque.
Known as the birthplace of the French Can-Can dance, the Moulin Rouge celebrates its 125th anniversary today. The can-can dance evolved here and inspired the introduction of cabarets across Europe. It offers musical dance, entertainment and as a tourist attraction, it still showcases much of the fin de siècle France décor (the cultural hallmarks applied to French art and artists).
HAPPY 125th ANNIVERSARY MOULIN ROUGE!
