La Machine du Moulin Rouge, formerly known as La Loco was born when the well known cabaret bought over the venue in 2010. This enabled this new club to take advantage of the well known and established cabaret. La Machine is truly a shape-shifting place intended to be a club and a concert venue. This nightclub features 4 main rooms across 4 levels, Le Central which is the main room, it is kind of a mini-club, La Chaufferie, which is located at the basement level, Le Bar à Bulles a terrace bar behind the Moulin Rouge and Le Toit, a beautiful rooftop space with a great view. Le Central has a capacity of 800 people and it hosts most popular artists both local and international. La Chaufferie accommodates 400 people easily.
Champagne bar is ideal for cocktails, after work or in the pauses of dancing. They have a wide variety of delicious cocktails here. If it is too hot in the basement, you can head on out to Le Bar à Bulles a terrace bar to chill and relax with your friends. They have a characteristic red windmill in front which is an icon of Paris and a great selfie spot. The area around the club is home to numerous souvenir shops and is famous for its nightlife. Definitely worth a visit and a selfie.
La machine is a very good place for various shows and it is definitely a lot of fun. The nightclub is huge, the sound is perfect, and the bar upstairs has a great view of the stage. This nightclub is always buzzing, amazing DJs, lots of locals and just a great vibe. The drinks are a little on the expensive side but you can easily forget it, because of the atmosphere.
We would recommend you to dress casually, and reserve your spot days before, because this place gets crowded, and controls on the door are strict. You need to be 18+ to enter.
