The 90-minute Montréal Burlesque Walking Tour promises to spice up the Quartier des spectacles (entertainment district), once the most notorious Red Light District in North America. Led by a flamboyant burlesque queen, step back to an era when Montréal was known internationally as "Sin City" and "The Paris of North America". Discover Montréal in its heyday as a "wide open city", an era when brothels, gambling dens, booze cans and burlesque halls lined every street and corruption of every type reigned. You will be in for a burlesque treat!

Accompanied by your storyteller, you will stroll through the streets of Montréal's Quartier des spectacles (entertainment district), the city's former Red Light District. Starting from the Midway Tavern and ending in front of the legendary Café Cléopatre, the activity includes over 10 significant sites ranging from old brothels and seedy hotels, historic burlesque halls and grandiose theatres, and other locations where some of the most steamy and salacious history in all of Canada unfolded. You will be entertained with secrets from Montréal's past while passing by these buildings and sites.
While strolling through the old Red Light District after nightfall, you will learn all about burlesque: what it is, why it was Montréal’s most popular form of entertainment from the 1920s to the 1950s, who the most famous stars were, where they performed, how the burlesque scene died and was revived, and where to experience burlesque in Montréal today.
