The room has never before been available to the public, but Moulin Rouge’s lead dancer,  Claudine Van Den Bergh, will be opening up the space for three one-night stays in June.

“Attending a show at the Moulin Rouge offers an escape from the everyday and an incredible immersion into the glamor and grandeur of French Music Hall,” Claudine Van Den Bergh said in a press release. “The Belle Époque-inspired interior of our much loved windmill will transport guests to the era from which this timeless cabaret emerged.”
