Circus Afterhours

915 Ste-Catherine E
SEE MAP

Tel. not available
Circus After Hours welcomes all the beautiful performers that will give a tantalizing show during the early hours of the morning. The act starts on St-Timothée (corner Ste-Catherine), where a mass awaits to enter. First come the barriers, where the wait could be lengthy. The ringleaders stand in front of the crowd and carefully pick the sultriest dancers to penetrate the circus.

Once inside, vast corridors will guide you to the spectacle of lights, music, and to the collection of passionate party people. The main room flows with techno and house music, where the magnitude of beautiful bodies heightens to a sweltering temperature. Many cozy and intimate sections are present to cool off, or to increase the heat with a partner. In addition, a special section is open to those interested in getting their bodies oiled by the sensuous hands of a masseuse.

Below greets all the hip-hop fanatics who are ready to bop to a great selection of songs. The entrancing vibe makes the bodies move in perfect sync, as the soft lighting attempts to smooth the ever-present lustful tension. However, refreshing water and power drinks available to chill down the impulses.

Circus promises what its’ name implies, an extravagant show for the eyes, body, and mind. The experience awaits you…

I assume this place is for people who already consumed all their illicit drugs and don't know when to call it a night. Security does everything but ask you to bend over and cough, so you can see morons dance on stripper poles and choke to death on all those shitty smoke machines. Is this a club or a haunted house?

I have been to that place many times, each time I found it was degrading in quality over the previous time. The roof's low, the music makes you deaf, it used to be two floors, then two rooms on. The same level and finally one room.



The talents went worse over time and the prices gone up.



Smoking there you have to go outside, so from +50C. To -40,

This place is a joke,dont go there if you wanna live. The only reason why this crap hole still open is because is a drug dealing place. I had such a bad experience there that my brother and I almost got killed and the only thing we wanted was to hook up with some chicks at the end there was none probably about 4 and they looked scared. If you wanna continue the party after 3 AM look elsewhere not here because you could appear months later in the Saint Laurent River if you know what I mean.

My girlfriend and I went to Circus after the bar down the street gave us a free pass. Nobody was there at 2am. We walked into the other rooms that were lit to take a look around. The manager asked us to leave this area. When I tried to ask him a question, he said he was too busy to answer anything. He then proceeded to push me. When I told him that there was no reason for shoving me, he went into a psycho tirade, grabbed my water bottle, poured it on me and threw the bottle at my girlfriend. He then put me in an arm lock and pushed me into the arms of another security guard.

I then looked up this place on-line and read the violence that was un-leased on other customers. I believe their stories as I lived a similar event at the hands of the Circus nightclub manager. This place is dangerous because the people who run it are obviously no better than wild animals. Stay away.

yeah so we hear that this club is off the hook and riskay for couples. i end up making out in the bathroom with the girlfriend and then i get BLAPPED in the head with a night stick and the stall door ripped off and my lovely girlfriend mortified with the fact that her man is getting hauled off by a group of raging bouncers all jacked up on steroids. my suggestion to you people is stay away from that shit hole and find a place that isnt decieving and is lover friendly. fuck that place. be smart and be safe.

This place is a fucking joke.. my boyfriend and I read the description and he had been there before and it seems like it would be pretty sexual/ crazy we went in the bathroom together and ended up making out and the bouncers came knocking on the door we said hold on nothings going on in here and they blapped my boyfriend upside the head with a nightstick then the tore the door open and started ushering my boyfriend out of the club and left me in the stall I went out and thought I had lost my cell phone and they refused to let me go back for it and when I started crying the lady at the desk told me to take it somewhere else.. and the bouncers were fucking dicks.. don't go there isn't not what it seems!!! complete waste of time and money cost us 50 bucks to get in and nothing to show for it..

Amazing club to go to as a trance fan. Transformers, their trance night, brings in some world class DJs who fill the place to the very early morning hours. OK, so there are some sketchy looking characters there sometimes but what afterhours club doesn\'t have a few?! We all go there for different reasons...Overall, A great place to dance and relax at the end of the week. Amazing sound, relaxed scene, INCREDIBLE DJs, smiling faces all around. Gareth Emery at Circus a few months ago was the best show I have ever seen...The vibe was perfect!

this place is the worst place on earth. if YOU want to die, go there. from the owner to teh bouncers to security is involved in selling DRUGS. I saw it with my own two eyes when the security and bouncers nearly killed this guy to death and through him in back alley. everyone is fully equiped with knives, and other source of fighting objects. Do not Go there. if you want to live.

It's sad to say that after having travelling the world and going to numerous big events i feel so much shame in the montreal afterhours clubs. I saw Tiesto there in November 2005 and not only where glowsticks not allowed but you can't take any pictures either or they confiscate your camera...(at least some pea of a brain wannabe rent a bouncer tries to take it from you). They also oversold the show and were forced to kick people out from the show so you can see that management isnt on top of things either and last but not least why do raves "have to be" all about drugs people; you go to major events in Europe and people go there for the music and the dj's...not to get high and pose in front of everyone. Bottom line; Club is one of the worst(bad staff and their lucky i didnt sue their a***s for downright incompetence) i've seen in the world and the crowd simply sucks.

The front doors say "Tripping is sexy" and that is about their whole theme: the ultimate tripping environment. They deal it all too. Go there reaaaally late (like 5am) though or it sucks.

I'm sorry, gotta say it....Circus sux....the music, everytime I've gone has been little more than painful to the ears and as for the party crowd atmosphere...people, Afterhours are for chilling, relaxing, having a greta time being Who You Are....not a pretentious fashion show! Other than that, no complaints I'd say!

J'ai adoré le club. C'est vraiment chaleureux, bien fait et la musique est excellente. Petit commentaire : Pour une personne qui est «je sais» intéressante à regarder, je n'ai pas apprécié du tout l'attitude de deux espèces d'imbéciles d'agent de sécurité qui n'ont pas leur place dans un endroit libertin comme un afterhour, en ridiculisant sa façon de danser. J'y retournerai sûrement tout de même.
