- The name Dame de Canton (changed from Cabaret Pirate in 2008) encompasses an impressive range of possibilities: a Chinese-style yacht holds a restaurant and performance venue which transforms into a club animated by a live DJ after weekend concerts. At the restaurant, diners may choose à la carte or a formula including a meal and concert. The concerts themselves are fascinating contemporary performances of music from around the world... swing and jazz, reggae, rock, afro beat, electronic music, ska, hip hop, tzigane and gypsy styles, dub, beat box, singers, and occasional events built around the music find a home at the Dame de Canton. In addition, children's programming (Wednesday afternoons: 2:45 p.m.) includes clown cabaret, musical theater, storytelling, and concerts. The boat may be rented for private events, and tickets are available online, by phone, or before the show.
