Former nightclub “Le Magnum”, located in Pont-des-Sables, city Fourques-sur-Garonne, welcomes a cabaret, “The Sand Mill”. Its opening is planned for the end of October, beginning of November 2022.

Dusting, cleaning, arranging decorations, adjustments, it took only a few weeks for the partners of “Moulin des Sables” to restore and give the former night club “Le Magnum”, which later became “Luxe”, the spotlight necessary for the hoped and expected success of this project. A common dream that becomes reality.

A dream come true

Etienne Laffargue and Cyril Cotard, masters of the place, were both inspired by this place full of promise. “During the health crisis, we faced the difficulties of homelessness, which we had practiced for years,” declares Etienne Laffargue, director of Moulin des Sables.

The owner dreamed of a “cabaret” in his place and found people motivated, ready to level everything and make this place a common dream, accessible to all social categories.

Recruits dancing and singing artists

The review proposed by “Moulin des Sables” will be titled: “Élégance”. Director and choreographer Jérôme Lhorloge is ready to welcome the artists that the collaborators are currently recruiting. Singer, singer, dancers and dancers are invited to submit a choreographed dance video, photos and CV to the production. They are still actively looking for artists with a solid foundation in classical or contemporary dance with first cabaret experience. Knowing how to do splits is a must for being part of the selection. Preselection will be done via video.

The “meal-show” formula should allow everyone to live their dream in a cocoon lit with feathers, rhinestones and sequins. If the eyes sparkle, the taste buds will not be left behind. The food will consist of fresh, seasonal and local ingredients whenever possible.


With a capacity of approximately 80 seats, the Moulin des Sables will be open for the “Élégance” show on Friday, Saturday evening and Sunday noon. Thursday night events are currently being studied, especially to highlight “upcoming” artists. A hotbed of talent, that would be the motto of these Thursday evenings. Tapas, student or various evenings are planned.
