Well there have been a lot of changes.in the Talent pool in Montreal. 

I found absolutely nothing of interest at the Campus. Friday afternoon was very slow and the energy level was not good. Sunday evening was.even worse.a A lot of the daytime/evening dancers are what you used to find at Stockbar with a very heavy Latin presence. 

Stockbar has raised the cover to $5. Drink prices have also gone up. Some 9f the performers are definitely posing for the camera/website with little participation with the audience. It has been a while since I have found anything of interest at Stockbar but if you like bigger buff dudes this place still would fit the bill.

Adonis was an absolute horror show 9n a Saturday night. We make a quick exit after a fella with a very pronounced surgical scar on his abdomen got up to dance.

Taboo was.the saving grace for this trip. The type of boys one used to find at Campus during the day are now dancing at.Taboo as well as some younger fellas. I met a very nice young fella that I spent a lot of time with in the back as well as at my hotel.

We took a lovely drive into the country and up to Mont Tremblant. Amazing how little English is spoken once you leave Montreal. And the fellas in the Quebec countryside are stunning !

Thank you for your report. 

You reconfirmed why I don't go and should not go to Montreal anymore.  

I used to visit Montreal a lot.  

Over time, many stores and restaurants in the village closed. 

About the time I stopped visiting Montreal, the village was like being in a deserted town compared to how it was in its heyday.  

The strip bars became less interesting and rather boring. 

Worse, the village became filled with young guys on drugs who would hang out on Ste Catherine's - 

Nope, no more Montreal for me.

Thanks mvan1 and townsendplocke for confirming what I've been reporting the last few years regarding Montreal.

It's good to know I'm not going crazy, and that I'm not the only one who see's things without rose colored glasses regarding the breathtaking decline of Montreal's once vibrant gay strip club scene.

You are very welcome.  

What a shame.  Montreal used to be such a wonderful place to take a long weekend or spend a few days on a short vacation.  

I doubt that it will return to its glorious days.  

If one does not mind traveling, there are many other cities in the world that far outshine what Montreal used to offer.

Actually I had a great time in Montreal. It remains my favorite city in North America. I just find myself spending less time in The Village than I used to. Plenty of other places keep me well occupied.

And to paraphrase Saint Oscar " reports of the death of the Gay Village have been greatly exaggerated!" 

Saint Catherine is undergoing a transformation. That transformation has slowly been moving eastward. It may take a bit but the Village will soon be gentrified. But I hope it takes a long bit of time as shiny new condos and mixed use buildings do not want Strip clubs ( gay or straight) in their neighborhood. 

While I did not have a good time at Campus or Stock that is not to say I won't be back. The talent pool is constantly changing and it just takes one or two dancers to make an enjoyable visit.

Taboo was really the saving grace this trip. As I mentioned in my report the type of fella that used.to thrill me at Campus is now dancing at Taboo. There was one young man who made my visits most enjoyable. And there were a few more that I would have happily spent more time with. Taboo also has an outstanding DJ. 

While the scene has changed in Montreal so have the scenes in every other metropolitan area. You can either cling to your memories and not participate in the now or you can appreciate what is still worthwhile in life.

I look forward to returning to Montreal.

Clinging to memories or not participating would be depressing and non productive.  

A better option would be to visit other cities and countries where there is a high probability for a wonderful time. 

Montreal is still an interesting and fun place to visit.  However, it had its high day of glory - that day has moved on -

You're absolutely correct mvan1 that Montreal's day of high glory as long come and gone. The breathtaking decline of the Village is undeniably evident on each and every corner. Only those who refuse to take off their rose-colored glasses and hold on to memories of the past refuse to acknowledge the truth. Just like Detroit's Club Gold Coast, both destinations have become virtual ghost towns (albeit Montreal is much safer).

Most cities IMPROVE over time...not decline over time.

I wonder what the reasons are why people in condos don't want the strip club clientele in their neighborhood? LOL

This topic is so sensitive to some people that I got banned on the other site for no reason. They cherry-pick free speech , while the antagonist does not get banned. Can you imagine the frustration of completely annihilating their argument, only to get banned  without explanation, and have your comments removed, all the while the original antagonist does not get banned. They pulled the same tactic a few years ago when they disagreed with my views. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice , shame on me.

This website is so refreshing that you don't have to put up with any of that BS.

As several others have said, Montreal's gay strip club scene is on life support, and has been for over a decade. There are so many other worthwhile destinations  worthy of your time and money. As you said, Montreal can be a nice place to visit just like Paris, Berlin, and Madrid. As far as the gay strip club scene...not so much.
