TThis original show combines European cirque, cabaret, spectacle, and live music meanwhile serving up a mulit-course feast designed by celebrated Northwest Chef Erik Carlson. The show is presented in a gorgeous, climate-controlled, antique cabaret tent (known as a spiegeltent). Imported from Belgium, the spiegeltent is nicknamed the Moulin Rouge. Built in 1910, it boastsstained glass, hand-carved wooden interior columns, polished crystal and mirrors. Guests are seated restaurant-style in this unique venue, and the action of the show takes place throughout the circular structure. The Moulin Rouge comfortably seats 285 guests.Recommended for:

It's awesome that we even have a cabaret/cirque like this in San Francisco. The historic tent is beautifully constructed, and the vibe is very Parisian. It's actually quite small, and while we did get prime seats front and center, you'll have a good seat no matter where you are. Since we did sit up right in the center, we did get picked on a few times to participate in the show, which was fun.
While I've been to Cirque du Soleil shows, this show is really nothing like any of them. I think I always had this expectation that it would be more of an acrobatic show, but it wasn't, so I was a bit disappointed. There were lots of comedy skits and musical acts, and only maybe three acrobatic performances. While I was amazed by the acrobats, they were not quite at the caliber of Cirque performers. Actually, one of the trapeze artists fell (thankfully, she landed on a safety mat). And because the tent is quite small, they are limited to movement. Still, it was an entertaining variety show. I'd say you could compare it to a dinner show at Supperclub, but with a lot more acts. Even then, you can do Supperclub for 1/3 of the price of one ticket here.
They say you're not supposed to expect good food at a cabaret, but the food was rather good. It was a five course meal, which was spread out over the three hours. Again, it was pretty similar to what you would get at Supperclub.
I'd recommend coming here if you're celebrating a special occasion and looking for something that's truly unique in SF. Prices vary and can be pretty steep, depending on what day you go, and where you want to sit. It can start at $117 and go up to $195 plus fees per person. This doesn't include drinks. So, make sure you go with someone who will appreciate you for it!
