There is no official – or unofficial – red light district in Montreal but escort services in the city can be acquired via massage parlours, clubs, private apartments and, of course, from girls on the streets (the latter tends to prove the least expensive).
In fact, the city currently offers around 30 strip clubs and more than 200 massage parlours – to the extent it’s become a top escort destination for those across the border in the States.
Prices vary depending on where and with whom you’re meeting. Below we have provided some basic rates that you can expect to pay for hiring a Montreal escort.
Street Prostitutes / Cheap Escorts
You can expect to pay anything from $50 an hour right up to $200 for a street escort (depending on how many clients they’ve had and what time of day it happens to be).
Girls can mostly be found at the St Catherine and St Laurant intersection and east of the area.
Massage Parlour Girls
Massage parlours, which typically open from 10am to 10pm, can be found on streets such as Rue Rachel est, Boul Rosemont, Rue Mazuretteunit, Rue Notre-Dame O, Rue Saint-Jacques, rue Ontario E. You can expect to pay around $50 to $60 for one hour.
The Bamboo Spa, based on Boul Rosemont, charges up to $110 for a ‘special price.’
Some places, such as Le Penthouse Spa on rue de Sorel, specialise in Latina and Thai girls. Magic Massage on Rue Sherbrooke offers only Asian girls (Korea, Japan, Malaysia and Thailand) aged from 20 to 30 years old. Ocean Massotherapie on Boul Saint-Laurent has Vietnamese girls while Nirvana Massage on Boulevard Decarie offer Russian girls.
Thai massage (where the masseuse will strip off and provide body rubbing as well as hand relief) costs an average of around $80. It’s not necessary to tip but many customers do and this can vary from $20 to $60 a time, depending on how much you’ve enjoyed the experience.
Escorts at Strip Clubs
Many of the best strip clubs are located in downtown Montreal.
While none of them advertise that their girls will moonlight as escorts, it’s an open secret that some of them do. For the right price.
Cabaret Les Amazones in Rue Saint-Jacques, is one of the bigger adult clubs with two bars and a couple of stages. The food is good and the service excellent. Having been around for more than two decades now it’s perfected its offering. Table dances are $10 and $40 for two dancers.
Another swanky joint is Chez Paree in Rue Stanley with its leather couches and tuxedo-wearing bouncers (check out the Poker machines if you enjoy a gamble too). Its been around for 40 years now and Club Wandas at boulevard de Maisonneuve Ouest is still drawing in the crowds. This large venue boasts three bars, a complete wine list with champagne and a full VIP floor. Enjoy fruit and cheese plates on the terrace. Table dances here are $10 a song or $100 for an hour. VIP rooms (with touching) are $15 per song or $200 for an hour.
Another classy venue – and one of the newest on the scene, having just opened in 2009, Kamasutra in rue St-Dominique offers lap dances and VIP service with prices on request. It boasts the highest ratio of girls in one night. Kingdom Gentleman’s Club in boul St-Laurent has six poles, more than 30 dancers and lots of private areas.
Centre Erotique de Montreal in rue Sainte-Catherine Est and Club Downtown at Saint-Catherine Ouest both offer a ‘bed dance’.
How much will strippers charge for a step up from a basic lap dance?
Because there is no menu, there is no set pricing. However, we’ve heard stories of ladies being available for a quietly agreed sum of $300+. Your mileage may vary.
Costs for independent private escorts vary but you can expect to pay between $200 to $300 an hour. Two hours usually come in at around $500 with couples at $400 an hour.
If its a Menage a trois you’re after, expect to pay around $500.
It’s worth noting that you can find some much cheaper independent escorts using classified sites where the market drives down the prices.
At the opposite end of the scale, there are ‘luxury companions’ offering a VIP girlfriend experience which may set you back well over $1000 per hour.
