    Does anyone know if the Montreal stripper bars are open Christmas Eve and Christmas night? I have emailed them to ask, but bars are not great at checking their email (or responding to it).

    Stock has emailed to say that they will be closed both nights.

    I am sure that my friend spent a Christmas Eve at Campus or Taboo once a few years ago (20 years ago). He doesn't remember which.

    Campus will be open. Was there last weekend and the DJ mentioned it.

    Just got back from Montreal; had a good time at the stripper bars. They were busier than I expected, although one of the dancers at Stock was complaining last night that no one wanted to do privates, even though there were quite a few customers. The city took the Christmas tree down on December 28th, which seems a tad early; I guess they got tired of the ridicule. The other news is that there's a lockout at the Hotel Gouverneur. Management locked out the staff in mid-December. They've been trying to run the hotel with about 20 managers doing all the work of the huge staff. Loud picketing out front several days this week. I am glad I was not staying there this time.

    As of today, April 9, 2017, the Gouverneur staff are still on strike (I just called the hotel to double-check).

    My next visit is imminent. So, since I won't cross a picket line, I'll be staying in Old Montreal this time.

    It's not like I can't use the exercise :)

    My travel there is imminent also, so safe travels and keep us posted, and kudos for not crossing a picket line.

    We booked the Hotel St-Denis for our next trip. Just a couple of blocks away from the Gouverneur. I called them directly and got an unbelievable rate of 115 CAD/night.

    I booked the Hotel St-Denis for just $89 CAD in mid-May for 4 nights through TripAdvisor back in March. I emailed the hotel before arriving and they guaranteed me a room on the top floor on the quiet side. I like it much better compared to the Gouverneur. My fave hotel is still the Hotel Loews Vogue.

    I wonder if they've closed off Ste Catherine Street to vehicle traffic yet, and if there are any updates on Taboo or Club Unity or the Montreal hustle "street" scene?

    I'm into skinny twinks.

    I thought Club Unity was just a dance club? What goes on there? Are there twink hustlers available?

    I've never seen any. To be honest, Unity is sadly long past its prime (at least for gay men). It's noticeably quieter than it used to be.

    I was totally happy with the St. Dennis.

    Has anyone been to the Governeur in the last week or so? Is the staff still on strike? I just called them and the person who answered said "We are back" but for some reason didn't sound convincing.

    Lol! Well, he never specified who "we" so you can't really contradict him.
  17. I would not recommend the Goveneur Hotel period. Service is horrible, rooms are dated and not very clean. Just my experience.

  18. Courtyard Marriot, Hyatt Regency or even a bed and breakfast the Sir Montcalm would be way better.

    I agree with you 100%, and so do most of the people on TripAdvisor reviews.

    My favorite Montreal hotels (depending on my budget) are the Hotel Lowes Vogue and the Hotel St-Denis. I sleep into the early evening hours and stay up all night, so I need a hotel where it is relatively quiet during the daytime.

    Plus, I always bring my own shower head and learn how to turn-off the "motion-sensor" device that always turns off my Air Conditioning while I'm away or asleep. I don't want to wake up to a stifling hot room because the hotel tries to save some money at my expense (regarding comfort).

    So ... how DO you turn off the "motion-sensor" device. They are so annoying.
