I went here a couple of weekends ago with a group of bachelorettes. The place was packed with bachelorette parties, and getting to the show early is recommended if you want to find seats. The show started at 11ish, and we probably should have gotten there between 10-10:30. The drag queens were amazing! Incredible how they put women to shame... More

Cabaret Mado was the first place I went during my first time visiting Montreal. Because I love drag queens, I was so excited about it. Once I got there, I had to pay 10 dollars to get in, which in my opinion it is a very fair price. The problem started right after I entered the place. There was a... More

We went to Mado for their Tuesday night drag show. After paying the $5 cover and $1.50 for each coat check, it was time to stand and enjoy the show. And a most enjoyable show it was. Comedy and humor, costumes and props to go with the music, and a very talented and professional group of performers. Will definitely be... More

This was my first time attending a drag queen show! It was absolutely fabulous! What talented performers! They have bodies that are better than many women! I was very impressed! The banter in between each performance is mainly in French, although Mado does speak English especially to tease any of the tourists. It is a lot of fun!! I can't... More

I have seen a quite a few drag shows in my life, even a real old fashioned cabaret in an old theatre in Barcelona with a drag MC with green policy (no feathers and no leather because of the poor animals) but Mado is really THE QUEEN! Her humor is like paint remover and she is just, and on purpose,... More

This is a FRENCH dragqueen show hosted by Mado, a very popular dragqueen in Quebec. She and her friends do two danse/lipsing show at night. One at 11pm and another at 1am. Both shows are different. In between the shows, you can stay and danse! :o) I found this place to be very entertaining. It is mostly attended by parties... More
