If you don't know how to samba, you can pick up the basics at the Friday- and Sunday-night dance lessons, but if you don't learn, no one on the jam-packed dance floor will notice. There's a substantial hetero contingent that comes out just to watch the fabulous drag queens -- and don't be surprised if you encounter a bachelorette party in progress. « less

The worst night club ever for straight people unless u are a gay or lessbian . I will never go there again . You bring your gf and your gf's friends and for sure you will get in trouble with those 100 single man that they go around as pack of wolf's to hunt a straight sheep . The bar... More

What I liked: music was good, decent volume, good dance floor set up (basically the whole middle of the bar). What I didn't like: lighting is to low (spot lights right in front of your face), the bars are cash only, no option to run a tab or pay by credit card... the crowd... well, it's not really anyone's type...

There's a reason there aren't many reviews on El Convento, despite it's history as the drag show venue of Toronto. I don't even know if there are other places that have a drag show...the only thing I know is that if you are bringing your stagette/bachelorette here to have a great girls night out, it would be the biggest mistake...

Everyone had a great time. We finally stopped going on a regular basis, because it seemed that all the guys on the make realized there... More
