Now that Baz Luhrman has made this spot famous with his movie, the Moulin Rouge is quickly becoming one of the more famous sites for tourists. The Metro stop climbs to the street right in front of the nightclub, which allows for easy access in and out of what might be a bad neighborhood. The club is surrounded by seedy strip clubs and peep shows, so we didn't visit the area. There is a circular cement platform right in front of the club, which provides a good base for photography of its famous red windmill (in French, "Moulin Rouge"). You can still see a show there, but it will set you back about 70 Euro per person.
