    Around here, the club is dead when it drops below 65.

    True, but as stated above, most snow-belt clubs have coat checks, or at least coat racks. A bit risky with an open rack, so you remove all your valuables.

    Actually, in the snow belt, gay clubs are MORE busy in the winter, because there's nothing else to do there. In the summer everybody's out doing stuff, the college students have gone home, there are no holidays to celebrate indoors (July 4th in the US being an outdoor kind of thing), during which those gay places die. It's the winter when they see their best business up North. Trust me, I've known gay club owners, I've been there, this is what they tell me, and what I've seen.

    Not only do people club when there are sub-zero temperatures, but in Montreal they even do it outside. There is an outdoor dance floor festival set up in February called Igloofest. It's one of the coolest things ever. It'll be freezing but with all the people dancing, it can get warm enough that I've even seen guy stake their shirts off in the crowd.

    when i went to chicago last year and went out to clubs in the winter. A lot of the clubs had this thing called a "cloak room" icon_lol.gif

    it sounds so 1950s to say "cloak room" but theyre very common up north, apparently.

    If you are lucky your visit to New York or Montreal will coincide with one of first warm spells of spring. The first real warm days of the year often causes spring fever that brings everyone out and the clubs will be very busy.

    Yes. People do club in subfreezing weather. BUT, it can be a challenge. Some arrive in cabs ( Taxi's) and limo's scantily clad for the evening. I, however, wear many layers of clothing since we are kept waiting by the bouncers and hosts on the streets in cold, windy, icy weather. Once inside, I begin to shed layers. The trouble with is is that in NYC, each layer of clothing must be 'checked' as a single or seperate item, so, it can be costly. One club charged me 20 dollars to check my things alone. Oh, yes, and tips must be given to the coat check boys. Generally, I avoid clubbing in winter, but, if my favorite DJ is spinning, I just have to show up icon_smile.gif Have fun here in NYC and in Montreal !!

    Well yes, people do club in sub freezing tempatures, but obviously clubs aren't as packed when it's cold

    Really, the coat-check ought to be a flat rate to encourage hot guys to check as much as possible. (Accept the coat, then hold out hand for shirt...)

    I have seen some boys strolling down the street on NYE in boots, hat, and briefs. But most winter weekends, it's the girls who seem to be risking hypothermia, wobbling down the streets in ridiculous high heels, a bunch of fishnet and a bit of clingy stuff.

    And clubs need to encourage the removal of shirts by not having the heat too low in winter or air too high in summer.

    Winter weather in Montreal doesn't matter. Things just keep on moving normally.

    Of course. There is little else to do in the winter up here.

    Make nice with a cute bartender to stash your coat away. Or brave the elements and leave it at the hotel. You'll be mistaken for a local!

    Lol, we even have coat checks here, more because it rains a fair amount, but also gets chili, rarely super cold though, only got to 17* F this winter, so not too bad.

    Definitely no clubbing baby seals. They never pay for a round and their breath stinks of herring.
