Les Vignes de Montmartre
At the end of the rue Poulbot keep walking straight ahead in the rue des Saules and walk down as far as you reach the rue Saint Vincent. On your right between the rue Cortot and the rue Saint Vincent is another fame of Montmartre: the Clos Montmartre, which is the only vineyard still existing in Paris. It has existed since 1932 and offers 27 grape varieties, mainly Gamay and Pinot. The ‘Fête des Vendanges’ which takes place every year during the second weekend of October is definitely a unique experience and one not to miss.

Le Ciné 13 théâtre 
Inside the prestigious walls of the Moulin de la Galette, this intimate performance hall was named after the favourite number of its famous owner, the film director Claude Lelouch. His daughter Salomé later took over in 2004, and now hosts a variety of events such as private screenings, recordings, comedy shows and concerts. Inside the cinema space, you’ll discover a bar and a private room containing 30 seats spread across 2 underground floors. Formerly a private cinema this quirky establishment thankfully became open to the public for all to enjoy and is now known affectionately as the ciné 13.

Le Moulin Rouge
The Moulin Rouge, the most famous cabaret in the world, opened in 1889 on the Boulevard de Clichy.  It became successful immediately thanks to its legendary dancers and singers and the famous quadrille naturaliste (later known as the French Cancan), the crazy dance in which the women throw up their skirts in time to the music and everyone goes crazy! Destroyed by fire in 1915, the Moulin Rouge re-opened in 1926 with a special revue and an already notorious troupe of dancers.  It was the beginning of a new era and is still one of the highlights of Paris.
