    A New "HDLM" style Hangout????

    I've never had the oppurtunity to visit Thursdays, or Hotel De Le Montagne before they both closed!

    I hear tons and tons of glory stories from others when they used to stay there, and party there. Many Merbites have shared some with me!

    Does Montreal have a similar hotel and bar where the cougars go, and the hotel sp's hang out? Just curious!

    Not similar, no. You have to realize that the location of HDLM and Thursday's was crucial. Thursday's was located in the heart of Crescent Street and was connected via tunnel to the HDLM lobby and piano bar. Do you appreciate and understand the significance of this location? There is no other location like this. That was the lynchpin to the success and reputation of these places.

    There are certain late night places where SPs reportedly hang out - after hours clubs and the like. Zestos had a reputation, years ago, for being a late night dining destination for drivers, escorts and pimps, but that was back in the days of very few late night choices. I was at Zestos for late night food back in the day. The food was terrible back then, and there is so much late night competition in 2013, that I would be surprised if they are still in business serving the shit they were preparing.

    There will never be another Thursdays or HDLM because you cannot duplicate the location and you cannot duplicate tradition. HDLM was an old fashioned, old school hotel.

    It's like asking if there will be another 56 game hitting streak in baseball, matching Joe D's legendary hitting streak in 1941. No, there won't be. Too many changes have happened and there is just too much involved. It will never happen.

    Shitty! I tried heading over there late last year when i was in town, just to see the hype, and experience this legendary Thursdays that everyone told me about..... CLOSED!

    Then I read a few articles on it... seen a few posts regarding its closure and the disappointed fan base!

    Too Bad!

    If you knew the bartender at Thursdays and gave him a few good tips, he would return the favor. He told me of a group of civilian ladies that liked to see action ( 35 - 55 yrs. ). Often two or three would drift in at 4:00 and cruise the pickings, then a few more would join them at 5:00 - 6:00. I suspect the early ones were housewives, and the ones that came later worked downtown. These ladies liked to keep their own hobby to themselves and avoided trouble by never leaving the hotel, they got their own room that they shared. The bartender steered me over to these ladies and I went to the room with one lady at 6:00, then later more ladies in the group showed up at 8:00 and I was taken to the same room at 9:00 with another lady in the group. I can only guess that the second lady was being a good wife by cooking dinner for the husband before she went out to have sex.

    My friend was attacked by a MILF Cougar at the HDLM. I witnessed the attack. She was liquored up and unusually bold, and my friend is the kind of guy who has trouble saying no to and rejecting women, even if he is not attracted. I could tell by his body language, and eye contact he made with me, that he was not interested in her. So I had to "rescue" him from the attack by telling him we had to go.

    It was always a place where you could find some MILF action if you were into that kind of thing.

    According to some reports "Modified" Thursdays is coming back in October, at what capacity
    I don't know yet.

    On a related note...

    Forget cougars, if you want to "Encounter" the hot young SPs (And Dancers), you have to hangout on
    the St Laurent St clubs...of course the set up is nothing close to what the old Thursdays/HDLM used be.

    If you're wondering where those MILFS are now they can be found at Sir Winstons pub and at the Roxbury.

    Happy hunting
    Stay thirsty my friends

    Translation of the blog post:

    "Hotel de la Montagne, on Thursdays and The Fine Thursdays are not ... they were all very sad, me.

    It is with great pleasure that I announce the imminent reopening of Thursdays bistro bar and club will restart a new life after several months of consistent work in January 2014, if all goes well.

    Worthy successor to his father Bernard Ragueneau Torrance pilot project and will be at the helm of this new liner celebration and gluttony, having required a major investment on four floors.
    I'm sure many of us will wait to see her new baby instead of this great institution of the Montreal restaurant on the street Cressent, yeah, at the same address.

    I'll tell you soon

    There are 3 threads almost the same with the same hotels mentioned. This one plus.
    https://merb.cc/vbulletin/showthread...r-Bar-Montreal
    https://merb.cc/vbulletin/showthread...-working-girls
    And the same comments are posted by the same people.
    Maybe we could group them together?
    I do not think outside the box, I do not think inside the box, I do not even know where the box is.
