Fodor's Review

For most of the 20th century, this venue was the most legendary of all the cabaret theaters on Avinguda Paral.lel. Modeled after Paris's Moulin Rouge, it closed in the late 1990s as the building was becoming dangerously rundown. After an ambitious refurbishment in 2010, El Molino reopened as one of the most stunning state-of-the-art cabaret theaters in Europe. The building now has five—instead of the original two—stories, with a bar and terrace on the third; the interior has been decked out with complex lighting systems that adapt to every change on the small stage. What has remained the same, however, is its essence—a contemporary version of burlesque, but bump-and-grind all the same. You can purchase tickets online, before performances (which start at 6.30 pm and 9.30 pm) or at the box office, Thursday–Saturday between 5 and 10 pm.
