    Downtown nowadays is not as safe as it use to be. You got groups of gangs, people looking for trouble, it just doesn't feel safe walking downtown late at night anymore.....or maybe I'm just getting older....

    It's on de la Montagne, just south from Ste-Catherine, on the west side. In the 70's and 80's it was probably the most popular club in Montreal. When the disco craze died out, it closed and re-opened for a short time as a strip club. It re-opened as a night club a couple of years ago. It was originally a funeral home and the huge pipe organ used to fill the back wall of the club but I think it has since been removed. Looking at recent pics on their web site, it is no longer visible.
    And the Lord said unto John, "Come forth and receive eternal life." But John came fifth and won a toaster.

    I have been to the club numerous times, have never seen an organ there, it must have been removed

    I knew it was a funeral home but never knew about it being a strip club and a disco club

    Nope. The Limelight was on Stanley, upstairs from Chez Paree.

    At 1234, if you look at the back of the club today, you will see a huge panel with the club name on it. That is where the pipe organ used to be. It's a shame that they removed it because it was a very rare organ if I remember correctly. Wonder what happened to it?
