Gay Village, Montréal

Montréal , Québec
Canada's insider take:

Montréal's gay clubbers are young, sexy, and plugged in. Leading the party cry is Le Parking, where dancers of all orientations pulse to a different genre each night—save Fridays and Saturdays, which are reserved for les garçons. DJ Frigid has a hot-blooded following, making his Sunday night Electruck party a fun and sweaty romp for both sexes. Le Parking is located just off St. Catherine Street, the main artery for gay life (1296 Amherst St.;; Thurs.–Sun. 10 p.m.–3 a.m.). For those who don't like to dance, or who prefer to just relax in style, there's Le Drugstore, a gay-friendly entertainment complex with eight bars and a few pool tables. The city's lesbian population frequents this place on Friday nights (1366 St. Catherine St. E.; 514-524-1960; daily, 8 a.m.–3 a.m.). Cabaret Mado is a straight-up drag bar with live performances and dancing, and a happy hour between 4 and 9 (1115 St. Catherine St. E.; 514-525-7566;; daily, 11 a.m.–3 a.m.). After the clubs close, head to Stereo, an enormous after-hours affair for shirtless Tom of Finland types as well as straight dancers who want to keep on beyond the break of dawn. The lineup is studded with star DJs like Austin Leeds and Steve Porter (858 St. Catherine St. E.; 514-286-0325;; Fri.–Sat., 2 a.m.–11 a.m.).
