The back to back shows Friday night had us up on our feet, cheering and singing along. This is the perfect place for a bachelorette party whether or not you speak french. If you are in Montreal, don't let yourself miss a night here!

At the heart of St Catherins (which closes for traffic during most of summer), this place remains an icon. The first time I came here was more than 20 years ago...and the place kept its charm year after year. On Thursdays it screens the Ru...More

We are the first to admit that we know next to zero French, so we went in expecting to not understand anything. It was a pleasant surprise when about half of the performances were in English, so we really got the best of both worlds....More

The Village (Gay Village)
The rainbow pillars of Beaudry Métro Station shepherd
the way into to The Village, one of the largest hubs
for gay and lesbian culture in North America. With an
open layout and a congenial aura, the refurbished
buildings along Rue Sainte-Catherine pay a special
homage to menswear and to caffeine, with showrooms and
cafes. By morning, the antiquing gems along Amherst
Street are packed with collectors. An incredible party
