Drag Queens: Creatures of the night
There are men. There are women.
And then, there are Drag Queens: far beyond this usual cleavage.
These magnificent creatures of the night, sometimes eccentric, sometimes chic, always up to perform on stage. Just like pop stars or hollywood actresses, the Drag Queens make us dream: we respect them for their talent, we love them for their style.
Mado, the Queen of Montreal’s nightlife
If you want to see some of the best Drag Queen shows of the country (and maybe the world), the Cabaret Mado is the place to be!
Mado Lamotte is the queen of the place and if she’s not here hosting the party, you still can see her gigantic portrait right after you crossed the doors. Mado is a talented artist, she has a perfect sense of comedy, she sings, she writes... Long story short: she’s a wonderful show-woman! No surprise she’s one of the major figures of Montreal’s entertainment, media and (most of all) nightlife.
Are you ready for the show?
Be prepared to enter in a fantastic world. Once you walk through the doors of the Cabaret, you leave your prejudices and your problems behind. The time doesn’t matter anymore because you are here for one thing: to have a great evening! And you will for sure. But after couple too many drinks, you may have a hard time remembering...
What do we like the most?
«Les Mardis à Mado». One of the most popular weekly event of the Gay Village. On tuesday evening, Mado is our hostess and the Cabaret is always packed. There is a different theme every week, but the show is stunning every single time. The beauty and the talent of the performers is mesmerizing. And it’s not rare to see Dalida, Liza Minnelli or Lady Gaga on stage !
And if you’re not free on tuesday evenings. Go on friday or saturday nights! Mado is co-hosting the show with Nana, one of the most talented and experienced Drag Queens of Montreal. During the night, some of the best Drag Queens of the city will perform two shows (one at 11pm and the other at 1am). You can stay for both, of course!
What makes this place even more exceptional?
Cabaret Mado is a place where everyone is welcome. You don’t have to be part of the LGBT community to appreciate a show at Cabaret Mado. Here, you will meet people of all ages, people of all origins, young adults and their parents, tourists, groups of friends, gay and straight couples...
This diversity makes the uniqueness of this place. And we like that.
