10:00pm and the place was pretty packed, but I managed to snag one of the few bar stools available. My wife was wearing heals, so being the gentleman I am, I gave her the seat and stood just behind her. I feel a pair of...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

This is my second time there. This is a bar owned by the drag queen Mado. Located on St-Catherine in the gay village in Montreal. You pay a 15$ entrance fee at the door, and attend a show. Mado performs a bit but mostly is...More

We went here for New Year's Eve. It could not have been a better place. There were all types of people as patrons and the ladies were flamboyant and hilarious. I wish I knew what was being said in French because it was getting huge...More

Amateurish house although this drag house venue was built by Mado herself. I'm sure Mado tries to manage this place at the best of intentions however it is quite the opposite. The staff overall is rude and see the world within their own bubble and...More

Though probably not for everyone, Cabaret Mado on Ste. Catherine Street in Montreal is a complete hoot. Featuring classic lip syncing drag queens, great drinks and a very convivial atmosphere, Mado is naughty and fun. Be prepared to pay for your entry/cover charge in cash,...More

My group had such a great time at this hilariously vulgar show! We were a bachelorette group of 8. This place is definitely a popular spot for bachelorette parties! The host mostly speaks in French, but once she knew we were an English speaking group,...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
