I see others have had the same problem. Freezing cold, I was happy to arrive at the door, paid my entrance fee ($13) and got stamped on the wrist. Then was told to check my (lightweight) jacket downstairs. I said that I was cold and would prefer to keep it on - seriously it is a light down waistcoat not a heavy coat). The manager then approached and said she didn't like my attitude, basically doing her "bouncer" routine. "I am he manager and I don't like your attitude". Well, it wasn't much fun for me either - expecting a happy welcoming place, I got the "beast of Belsen" treatment. I wasn't aware before paying that I would have to deal with this - so it kind of spoiled the experience - what's it with these guys - I had just come from a great show at Le Cocktail without all of the attitude from the staff. I would predict that with staff like that, applying rules for which they don't even have a rationale, they'll go out or business soon enough - or maybe not, if people like to be abused when visiting Montréal. As a visitor, I was left with a bad impression!

We decided to go to Cabaret Mado for our friend's bachelorette. I had heard a lot about this place and was always curious about it. I am so glad I finally had the chance to see it for myself. It was hilarious!! Although, you should be able to understand french as the MC mainly speaks in french. However, even if you don't you will have a great time!! Those girls are FIERCE!!!! They really know how to put on a show. It is definitely worth seeing!

If you want a different kind of evening, grab a few friends and try the mado experience. It-s really a lot of fun and you-ll talk about it all week. Cheers.
