When it opened in 1889, the Moulin Rouge was the talk of the town, and its huge dance floor, multiple mirrors, and floral garden inspired painters like Toulouse-Lautrec. Times have changed—today’s Moulin Rouge relies heavily on lip-synching and pre-recorded music, backed up by dozens of befeathered Doriss Girls, long-legged ladies who prance about the stage. Be prepared for lots of glitz and not much else.
