53. French-Canadian living in Montreal. I really like cultural exchanges with people from all around the world. Thanks for your interest. Cheers! ;-) Warmest regards, Gino
My favorite bar in Manhattan
As a French-Canadian (Quebecker) tourist, I visited NYC at the end of April 2010 for one week. I went to the Monster three times for the happy hour. I liked the mix crowd, for it is not snobbish at all. The atmosphere at the piano bar level is relaxe and friendly. The basement level which has the dance floor was neither exceptionnal nor boring. In other words, the dance floor is not better or worse than the others that I have seen in my life. In all, I have nice memories of this bar, for I met nice guys there.
Nice indian restaurant
I have been there twice. The food is delicious particularly the chicken with butter sauce. A good one in its category.
The best place for a breakfast in the gay village
I have been there several times. The food is tasty, and the fruit cocktails are incredible. You have at the same place French, Quebecker, English and American breakfasts. What do you want more than that?
Really good asian food
I have been at this restaurant several times. I like both the atmosphere and the food. If you like asian food, you must try this one!
Food is good but sometimes music is too much loud
Before going there, you should verify if the music is at low volume... It is not a restaurant for a quiet and romantic moment, but if you like disco atmosphere, this restaurant is a good one.
The brunch on Sundays is really good.
I have never slept at this hotel. Nevertheless, I have been there several times for the brunch on Sundays. The food is both diversified and delicious. The price is honest not exaggerated at all. The customer service is professionnal. In all, good value.
No dance floor. Quiet and relaxe!
Most of the clients are in their 50's or 60's. It is not a big deal if you are there with a friend for taking a beer. The music is not loud what it means that you can talk quietly. The pool table is popular. In all, it is not really a bar for cruising, but a place for talking with a friend.
Not my favorite one but music on the 2nd floor...
It is not my favorite bar, but the electronica music on Saturday night on the second floor is amazing. I have never heard this kind of electronica music before. It is a funny sensation that I like a music that usually I don't like. Most of the clients are bear, leather and jeans. This last detail doesn't mean that a guy like me doesn't have his place there. Nevertheless, I have to admit that I am not the kind of guy who usually attracts them.
Good food and affordable prices.
My favorite restaurant in the Village. You can bring your own wine. Whatever you are alone or with friends, you feel comfortable in this restaurant. The poutine is really delicious. Daily menu is nice too. Open 24 hours a day.
Not my favorite one but the music is really good
Most customers are bear, leather or jeans, but it is not a bad thing. That's only the clients' profile. The music is really good. You can listen to rock, punk, electronica and pop! Good for me! Great place for either talking or cruising.
My favorite gay bar in Montreal
Why do I like Sky Pub? I like it, for the happy hour on weekends are a good opportunity for talking with friends in a nice atmosphere. Most customers are French-Canadians, but the employees give customer service in both French and English. There is a special price for the draft beer from 5 to 7 pm i.e. 2 for 1.
