(CNN) – Sitting on top of one of the most famous nightclubs in the world is the scarlet windmill. And inside the windmill lies a secret room, which has not yet been seen by the people.
Next month, a select number of tourists will peek inside, as Moulin Rouge has partnered with Airbnb to offer a handful of guests the opportunity to stay inside the Parisian institution.
The windmill room has been transformed into a gorgeous boudoir, wrapped in pastel curtains and adorned with Finn de Sickle artifacts and atmospheric knots down to the nightclub – from vintage costumes and perfume bottles to paper stalls.
‘Once in a lifetime’ opportunity
A room inside Moulin Rouge’s famous windmill will be available for rent via Airbnb. French historian Jean-Claude Yone advises on interior design.

Moulin Rouge is located in the Montmartre district of Paris. The so-called red windmill has been a staple of the nightclub since its inception, although the original structure was burnt down in 1915. The current windmill was built in the 1920s.
For many Parisian tourists, a visit to the City of Light is not complete without seeing a Parisian nightclub, while those who want the full experience go inside to watch the “Féerie” cabaret show.
The nightclub is also the setting for the 2001 Buzz Luhrmann movie “Moulin Rouge!”
Recent windmill renovations for the RBNB partnership include decorating the terrace area with ferry lights and pagodas by the windmill, making it an ideal place to sing under the stars of La Evan McGregor and Nicole Kidman.
Guests will also have access to this terrace balcony area.

Emanuel Merrill, RBNB’s regional director for Europe, the Middle East and Africa, told CNN Travel that this is not a contest, but only a few people will be able to make a booking because Moulin Rouge RBNB is a “once-in-a-lifetime”. Lifetime “situation.
If you’re lucky enough to get a bed in the windmill for one night, it will cost you a symbolic one euro (about $ 1).
Venue can only be booked for three nights – June 13, 20 and 27.
Along with a night at the windmill, guests will be able to enjoy Moulin Rouge’s signature cabaret show and three-course French cuisine.
While not all that luxurious, guests have to deal with shared toilets – however, they are probably more durable than the Ansute.
Passengers must also show proof of a negative covid test taken within 72 hours of their arrival at check-in.
