This is the city’s primo meat-market. This is a place where tourists meet Montrealers, and the night usually ends up at the hotels across the street. However, it is also a place to drink, chat with strangers, and get down and dirty on the sweaty grope-friendly dance floor. Now I have to warn you, there are lots of people that hate this place, but as one of my buddies brought-up: “Those people are just playa haters.” There’s nothing wrong with trying to get some casual sex once in a while. At this point, I would like to direct you to Dr. Smooth’s articles for some tips and tricks on how to pick-up.

I've been to this place as a tourist for the past few days. It's alright. Let me give you an overview of the good and bad.



The Good:

-The decor is nice, its classy and good-looking.

A nice place to be inside.



-The bartenders/waitress's are hot. I suppose thats normal in a club though.



-The girls are decent. From my experience, there are a few girls with boyfriends here though, look out for those, they will not tell you themselves. They will let their boyfriends tell you.



-Drinks are priced alright, could be better.



The Bad:

-There are a lot of guys, making it much more competitive to dance with girls. You'll notice this in the lineup, there are a lot of guys looking to pick up tonight. If you're shy with women, don't come here as you will end up being disappointed.



-The dancing is secluded to only a certain part of the club, its not like a regular club where there's dancing everywhere. This secluded dancing makes it feel less clubby.



-The waitress's complain when you don't tip them as much as they want.



-The bartenders will threaten not to serve you again if you don't tip them how they like, which is more than standard.



-The drinks are very watered down, you're better off with your money either getting pre-drunk and spending less money when you get there, or ordering bottles of beer that cannot be watered down by the staff.



-There is a long line to get in. Be prepared to arrive early (9:00pm) or get in the line at 10:00pm. This varies on the days though.



-I find it a little weird when the bouncers come in and start grinding the girls. The bouncers are mid thirties and the girls were my age. Its already competitive with all the guys there, I don't need you making it more difficult for us to pick up!



Overall its an alright time. I have been to better and worse. Better being Xotika right across the street and worse being Electric Avenue.

Indeed, this is a pick-up spot so don't go alone if you don't want to be harrassed. (Even in a group some of our female friends were approached). Nonetheless the nightclub below (which apparently has a dress code but not sure as I didn't go down) and the 3 bars on the main level play some cool music and sport an acceptable atmosphere, especially for the younger set. Tables are a premium here, however, so if you want to dine then come early. The main floor features a dance area in the back. This place doesn't get the credit it deserves. Located right next to Thursdays it does a far better job of entertaining than the other. Prices are average.

Gross!!! This was the first place I went to, and even wasted ten minutes of my life waiting in line to get in. The drinks are expensive and I swear the liqour is watered down. There are NASTY guys everyone stealing any chance they get to cop a feel. The floor is so sticky I literally had to pry my feet off it. Too crowded, too disgusting, definitely a place made popular by a bunch of hype.

Always packed, but not always with attractive clientel. A good time on occasion, bring a crew.. Be-ware of the dance floor, as u may have to physically fend the men off of you. Despite no promises of a perfect evening-one good aspect of the place is the table area with an almost veranda feel.

This used to be my favorite place a few years ago, and a few years a go I would have given it a ten. It's not that the establishment itself has gone downhill, but the clientel has seriously changed. Fewer people come, and they are now an older and most definatley uglier crowd. It used to be the place to find hot out of town college guys and willing montreal girls. But now it really is mainly old men or if you do find younger attractive ppl, they are most likely the old regulars who have developed an affinity for the staff. Winstons does have some really great peopl working there, and a couple of cute bartenders, but the patrons could use some work.
