(best international travel tips)
When choosing an outfit for the Moulin Rouge bear in mind that it is pretty much a tourist destination so it is doubtful that you will see Parisians’. What you will notice is people in every kind of outfit. (They are tourists, after all)
The suggestion coming from the Moulin Rouge itself is "semi-formal to formal…jacket and tie, no shorts, runners or jeans." If you purchased the ticket that includes dinner and this will be one of your special nights out then why not go for it.
Just as many people will be wearing smart casual. Men you could wear a dress shirt and jacket with nice pants and shoes, ladies could go for a simple dress or skirt and a pretty blouse.
Men you still won’t really feel out of place with no jacket or even with a polo shirt and nice pants. Ladies could go for dress slacks and a shirt.
Men if you wore a pair of nice dark jeans and a jacket as long as you look nice, I really doubt that you would be turned away. I believe that their dress code is a guideline and they, are trying to keep the standard high.
Choose what you would wear if you were going out to a decent restaurant and you should be fine.
A lot of people combine the City lights at night bus tour with the Moulin Rouge and just get out at that stop. It is a really good idea. Most doing it this way are not dressed formally but smartly casual.
I highly recommend the city lights tour. I really enjoyed it and, it is very inexpensive.
If you are going to sit up top in the open air have something to use to tie your hair back, so it doesn’t blow all over the place. I was really happy to find something to tie my hair with.
Not everyone on the bus will get off at this location.
Another thing that you might want to think about is what you will be doing after or before the show. It could also influence your choice of outfit for the Moulin Rouge.
