Best Pick-up Bar

The New Palace Cabaret

There’s a good reason you see those line-ups down Brunswick street on a Thursday night. The wet t-shirt contest is infamous, as is the sexy legs contest, and then there are the dancers, that cage, the second stage, the VIP section overlooking the downstairs and DJ Smooooth Steve and DJ Fierce keeping the tunes thumpin’. An off-record source says it’s “a whole visual game, an atmosphere thing,” that works for people, and that cabaret licence means its open until 3:30, giving the boys and girls plenty of time to score. 1721 Brunswick, 420-0015

First runner up: The Dome, 1741 Argyle, 422-6907

Second runner up: Reflections Cabaret, 5184 Sackville, 422-2957
