Top 5 Montreal Festivals for 2018

Montreal is known as the city of festivals, the city currently hosts over 100 festivals each year with the majority of them being held in the summer. It’s always nice to come to town when the city is buzzing and the energy is high. Each festival often has closed off streets and tons of things to see and do.  Here is a list of the 5 best Montreal festivals to attend in 2018 while on a bachelor party:

Montreal F1 Grand Prix:picture

Montreal’s summer officially kicks off on Grand Prix weekend. Always scheduled for the first week of June, the grand prix brings out the best the city has to offer. Many of the main streets are closed to cars, but opened to pedestrians. Restaurants, clubs and bars get extended into the street and the champagne flows non-stop. Models, celebrities, eace Fans and Drivers litter the streets and supercars are everywhere. Hotel prices double for the weekend with reservations only being secured with a three night stay. If you are a race fan or want the most intense bachelor party of your life, this is the weekend for you.

Grand Prix of Montreal: June 8th-10th

Montreal Beer Festival:picture

It’s always fun to have something to do during the day when you’re in town for a bachelor party weekend. This is one of our favourite festival for obvious reasons. The Montreal International Beer festival seems to grow each and every year. Now in it’s 2oth year, the festival houses over one hundred beer purveyors. If you have a beer loving crew that love day drinking then this is the festival for you. Interestingly enough, there are as many girls as there are guys and  it is a great place to pickup. If you are not in town for the beer fest, be sure to check out some of these spots for amazing beer.

20th Annual Festival Mondial de la biere: May June 6-June 9th

Osheaga:picture

Dumb name, great music festival. If you’re familiar with Coachella, think about a tenth smaller and you have Osheaga. Montreal’s best music festival takes place on the same man made island where they race the Grand Prix. Three stages, lots of hipster chicks and some killer acts. If you like music, it’s a great way to incorporate this into your bachelor party. Be aware, like Grand Prix weekend, hotels sell out very early in the year, so plan accordingly.

Osheaga Music festival: August 3rd-5th

Jazz Festival:picture

The Jazz Fest is the coolest Montreal summertime festival. The Jazz Fest has morphed into more than just jazz and offers some really great bands.  There are too many headline acts to list, but like the Grand Prix, many of the main streets get closed down for food trucks, public outdoor stages and just a general good time. It’s awesome to have a pre-drink before you go out, listening to jazz and sitting under the stars.

Festival International de Jazz de Montreal: June 28th-July 7th.

Just for Laughs Comedy Festival:picture

The comedy fest is another event that takes over the city for a weekend. Same as the Jazz festival, there are a lot of cool food trucks and pop up bars that exist for only this weekend. Known as the biggest comedy festival in the world, every year the festival brings in the heavyweights of comedy. If you plan to go to a show, don’t miss out the Nasty Show, consistently one of the most offensive and funny shows of the festival. There are always huge headline acts as well ( Kevin Hart, Dave Chapelle, Seinfeld, etc..) but be warned they sell out fast.

Just for Laughs: July 11th-July 29th.

The Best Montreal Sports Bars

No matter what time of year you come to Montreal for a bachelor party there will always be a “Big Game” on. There is no better way to kill a couple hours while drinking and eating. Montreal is only beginning to understand the value in awesome sports bars, check out these places and never miss a play, just don’t cheer against the Montreal Canadiens unless you’re looking for a fight.

Champspicture

Champs is the oldest sports bar on this list, and you can tell by the décor upon walking in. Champs has that old school sports bar charm. It’s located on the Saint-Laurent strip near Schwartz’s. If there’s an obscure game on TV, Champs will have it for your viewing pleasure. Champs is probably one of the busiest sports bar in Montreal, and there is no better place to watch a prize fight.

Address: 3956 Saint-Laurent
 

Station des Sportspicture

If you’re looking for bargain basement prices while watching the big game at a Montreal sports bar, look no further than Station des Sports. The food is passable as long as you want a burger, wings, or anything deep fried. They have a limited selection of games, so if the game is airing on ESPN2 don’t even bother heading there. We are pretty positive they don’t have a satellite sports package. What we do like about ”Station” is that it’s generally pretty full, they have an enormous front and back patio (great for summer), as well as Tap tables that let you pour your own beers without leaving the convenience of your seat.

Address: 2051 Saint-Catherine Ouest
 

Chez Sergepicture

Part of the same group that owns Candi Bar, Chez Serge strictly airs only Montreal Canadiens hockey games. So if you’re ok with watching the “Habs” play then you won’t find a more fun sports bar. First off, the wait staff is all female, they have an extensive drink menu, tall boy beers, funnels and even a mechanical bull! The waitresses dance on the bar between periods and the place is guaranteed to be packed. Even if there is not a game on the bar is fun place to drink/eat.

Address: 5301 Saint-Laurent
 

La Cage aux Sportspicture

We don’t like La Cage aux Sports, but if you are staying close to one, and need to watch a game, this place will suffice. They have a terrible selection of games and aren’t keen on looking for something that isn’t already playing on their screens. Like most Montreal sports bars, if the Canadiens are playing on the same night, we wish you good luck watching anything else.

Bell Centre Address: 1212 de la Gauchetiere Ouest
Old Port Address: 114 Saint Paul
 

Factorypicture

If you have dinner reservations at one of the supper clubs on Saint-Laurent but want to catch some of the big game beforehand, head over to Factory. It’s always a hit or miss whether the place will be busy, but they do have screens absolutely everywhere. The convenience and proximity of Factory make it an ideal sports bar to head to during your stay in Montreal.

Address: 3435 Saint Laurent
 

Peel Pubpicture

Welcome to one of the biggest college bars in Montreal. Chances are you or your buddy went here when you visited Montreal in 1998. You will feel old coming here, even if you’re 20. Very cheap food, even cheaper bathtubs of beer, a second floor patio upstairs, and TV’s everywhere. If you want something in proximity to Chez Paree or le centre Sheraton then this is your place.

Address: 1196 Peel

The Best Montreal Bars for Good Drinks and Better Looking Girls

Some of you have graduated from pounding pitchers at a local dive bar and would prefer a more refined way to have a pre-dinner cocktail. We have already warned you about the dangers of drinking too hard and too fast, so we decided to make a list of the best Montreal bars. These establishments serve a killer drink and are populated with some of the best looking women in the city. Head to these Montreal bars for your bachelor party and start the night off right.

Philemonpicture

Located in the heart of the Old Port, Philemon not only caters to a good looking crowd, but they also have a pretty extensive wine and champagne list for any aspiring wine connoisseurs. The layout is slick with big windows that face beautiful Saint Paul Street. They also have a great happy hour (5-7), so if you’re in town during the week we highly recommend you check this place out.

Address – 111 Rue Saint-Paul Est

Big in Japan picture

Don’t confuse the bar with the restaurant of the same name further south of Saint-Laurent. This is a low key establishment where you won’t find pumping music nor packed crowds. It’s a dimly lit “speak-easy” that has a great selection of beer, sake, and Japanese scotch. They have a food menu for those who want to eat while they drink. This place is recommended to the group that wants a quiet venue where they can drink in peace before the start of the night’s debauchery. This place is suitable for smaller groups.

Address – 4175 Boulevard Saint-Laurent

Candi Barpicture

This is a bar where you probably won’t enjoy the drinks as they all have a lot of sugar in them (bring an insulin shot), but you will find a lot of girls. Candi Bar is a theme bar and is catered to the Plateau crowd (eclectic). You have a good chance of standing out, as there aren’t many bachelor parties in this neck of the woods. This will garner your group some much needed attention that will help in picking up a pack of local French girls.

Address – 1148 Av. Mont Royal E. 

Furcopicture

Furco is the newest bar on our list. Upon walking in, you get the feel that the place is cool, expertly designed with an industrial feel. There is an extensive drink menu and, more importantly, lots of ladies. Remember, none of these bars are “crazy” places, they are merely bars where you can get a quality drink, talk up some ladies, and kick off your bachelor party weekend.

Address – 425 Rue Mayor

The Best Montreal Late Night Restaurants

Here at Connected Montreal, we’re not only pros at organizing the best bachelor parties in Montreal, but we also love to drink and eat. We follow a very simple weekend formula: go out, have far too many drinks, then hit one of the best Montreal late night restaurants. While we’ve always believed that stuffing our faces after a hard night of boozing is scientifically proven to reduce a hangover, we now seem to enjoy the congregation of drunken idiots who frequent the restaurants on this list. This list is composed of local Montreal late night restaurants, not crappy fast food chains.

5. The Mainpicture

The Main has been in somewhat of a smoked meat war for years with the famous Schwartz’s. They are literally right across the street from the world renown smoked meat emporium and have been holding their own for quite some time. Is Schwartz’s better? Yes. Are they open late night? No. So if you’re looking for a deli fix at 3am and want to harass hipster chicks, this is the spot.

What to Order:
Kreplach Soup
Smoked Meat Special
 

4. Boustanpicture

If you’ve been partying on the Crescent Street strip, then there is no other contender to a late night eating fiasco then going to the middle-eastern joint Boustan’s. It has become a veritable late night Crescent institution offering the best Shish Taouk (think chicken gyro but better) sandwiches in the city. This is a restaurant that Oren and I frequent even when we are not tanked. Big plates of shawarma or crispy chicken shish taouk sandwiches slathered in Garlic mayo and coleslaw.

What to Order:
Shish Taouk/Shawarma Plate
Shish Taouk Sandwich
Potato Plate with Garlic Mayo
 

3. La Banquisepicture

We have talked numerous times about the importance of trying a poutine when coming to Montreal. There are countless places that serve up poutine all over the city. While this is the most popular spot, it is not our personal favourite. The poutine is no better than anywhere else. However, the combination of being open 24 hrs, having many variations of pountine, and lots of cute French girls can make it a late night winner.

What to Order:
T-Rex Poutine
Italian Poutine
Young French Girls
 

2. Maison VIP in Chinatownpicture

Sometimes we need a healthy dose of MSG to soak up all the alcohol that has been consumed during a big night. If you are jonesing for a sit down late night Chinese restaurant that serves every and any Chinese dish imaginable, then Maison VIP is the place. While the only thing VIP about the place is the name, the food is pretty good and it’s cheap. Maison VIP is located in the heart of Chinatown, between the clubs on St. Laurent and the Old Port.
If you can’t find Maison VIP just head to Chinatown and pick any place, they all look the same.

If you get lucky like the guys bellow, shout out “Connected Montreal!” on the video for a free trip!

What to Order:
General Tao Chicken
Salt and Pepper Pork
Anything but Chickens Feet
 

1. Moe’s (Casse-Croute du Coin)picture

If you have ever wondered where the Montreal Anglophone community congregates at the end of a blackout night of drinking, all you have to do is take a step inside of Moe’s. They have limited tables and it’s first come first serve. We have been kicked out of this place countless times but have yet to be blacklisted. While the prices have gone up since opening, they have not re-invested the funds into the decor. This is THE greasy spoon in Montreal, where you’ll chow down on toasted hot-dogs, poutine, grand slam breakfast and the famous “Big Ed” Burger. You must be intoxicated to actually enjoy the food here. Stick with the basics and you will be golden. If you’re looking to pick up and it’s after 3am, just scream belligerently at girls who actually speak English.

What to Order:
Big Ed Burger
Toasted Hot Dog
Onion Ring Poutine
Tums

What to wear in Montreal during Winter

What to Wear in Montreal during Winter

Montreal is in the midst of its seasonal transition from Fall to Winter. Traveling to the city when the snow starts falling is the perfect time to visit. Sometimes it’s hard to decide what to wear in Montreal during winter and being a native Montrealer, I know how easy it can be to choose comfort over style when the temperature dips. No matter how brutal weather conditions might get though, style remains at the forefront here. We’ve compiled a list of some of the winter season’s best looks, as well as what shops you should buy them at while in town.

 

The Winter Jacketpicture

You’ll be needing a warm coat when the mercury drops – a cool bomber or a stylish winter coat will definitely do the trick. Since Montrealers know how to embrace the cold in style there’s a plethora of cool shops you can pick up a cool winter jacket.

Where to Buy:
Men’s – 1150 de Maisonneuve Ouest.
Ogilvy – 1307 Sainte-Catherine Ouest.

 

Bootspicture

The blowing winds of winter have a way of creeping up your leg. It has been said many a time, that the first thing a woman notices about a man are his shoes. Wearing your boat shoes in a January snowstorm will only make you look like a fool but that doesn’t mean you want to bust out your arctic boots just yet. For a boot that’ll keep your style points in check and won’t chill you out, run to these shops for some of the best selection in town.

Where to Buy:
Browns – 1191 Sainte-Catherine Street Ouest.
Holt Renfrew – 1300 Sherbrooke Street Ouest.
                 

Topspicture

Layering is a well known secret to any Montrealers heat game. Layering with style though takes a certain level of craftiness and retail acumen. It’s all too easy to turn into the Michelin man because of all the layers that you’ll be sporting. Be smart and remain stylish. Here are a couple shops that you might want to indulge in for some great tops.

Where to Buy:
Boutique Duo – 24 Prince Arthur Ouest
Michel Brisson – 1074 Laurier Ouest or 384 Saint-Paul Ouest
                                 

Winter Hats, Scarves, Glovespicture

You’ve taken care of all the essentials so now it’s time to pick up some accessories. Without a proper hat, gloves and scarf, all your efforts will have been for naught.

Where to Buy:
Simons – 977 Sainte-Catherine Ouest.
Club Monaco – 1455 Peel

Montreal Bachelor Party Hotels: The W

Montreal Bachelor Party Hotel Spotlight: The W Hotel

At Connected Montreal, we’re always looking for the best when it comes to bachelor parties in our city. As we have mentioned countless times, a good bachelor party hotel could make or break your whole weekend in Montreal. This brings us to the über-cool W Hotel.

Why We Love the W Hotel.

picture The hotel is located in the heart of the city, sandwiched between Old Montreal and the downtown core. Upon walking in, you instantly feel the laid back vibe. It is definitely the one of the coolest hotels in Montreal. They cater to a noticeably younger and hipper clientele, so you will not feel out of place celebrating your bachelor party here. The hotel’s motto is “whatever you want, whenever you want,” and on many occasions, during a bachelor party weekend in Montreal, this has definitely come in handy.

 Rooms And Suites.

Extreme Wow SuitepictureThe importance of getting a suite for a bachelor party weekend is second to none. The W hotel’s Extreme Wow Suite could, arguably, be the best in the city. With a huge terrace and ample room, it is definitely the right spot to kick off OR end an evening. We have great rates on this suite. 
Wow SuitepictureIf you’re looking for something super cool, but don’t have the budget for the Extreme Wow, then look no further than the Wow Suite. It is set on two floors and has its own private terrace: this suite – and its price – will definitely impress.
Mega Double RoompictureThe hotel has a limited supply of double rooms, but they will more than suffice if you’re on a tighter budget and don’t mind bunking up with another member of your bachelor party. These rooms still stay true to the cool vibe given off by the W Hotel and you definitely won’t be disappointed.

 

 

Plateau Lounge and The Wunderbar

The hotel has two options for drinking. First, the Plateau Lounge is the kind of hotel bar that gets busy after the workday is over and stays busy up until dinner. Second, the hotel club, Wunderbar, is a great option if you want to stay in the comfort of your hotel to party. The club might not be the biggest in the city, but it’ll do the job if you’re looking for convenience close to home.

Plateau Loungepicture
Wunderbarpicture

If you are planning a bachelor party in Montreal and truly want a hotel with the best in style and luxury, then look no further than the W.

We have some of the best rates around at the W and we can add the W Hotel in Montreal to one of our bachelor packages. For reservations at the best Montreal bachelor party hotel contact us at 1.877.690.4919.

Top 5 Bring Your Own Wine Restaurants in Montreal


BYOW Restaurants in Montreal

When travelling to Montreal for a bachelor party, you’ll want to find a unique culinary experience.  Choosing a bring your own wine restaurant in Montreal allows you to bring your own choice of either wine or beer (not liquor) while still enjoying a great meal. You can look at going to a restaurant like this in one of two ways: if your group is trying to be cost effective, it allows you to save a little on your dinner, or if you know your wines, it allows you to pair a great bottle of your choice with a fantastic meal without paying an often absurd mark-up on the bottle(s). BYOB restaurants are sometimes given a bad rep because of the mistaken assumption that the food isn’t up to par. These five restaurants are not only amazing BYOBs, but they are some of the best restaurants in the city.

5. Restaurant O’thym

1112 Boulevard De Maisonneuve E

pictureDon’t be put off by the fact that the restaurant is located in the gay village. The traditional French restaurant O’thym takes full advantage of fresh regional ingredients, with an ever-changing menu of seasonal food. From the Brome Lake foie gras to the cheese plates, you’re in for a real local culinary experience eating here.

4. Le Quartier Général

1251 Rue Gilford (corner Brébeuf)

pictureSituated deep in the heart of the Plateau, Le Quartier General is also located right at the center of BYOB territory. This minimalist French bistro offers a meat-centric menu of fresh Canadian-sourced meats and seafood. You can just as easily pair a great bottle of red with their Quebec veal or rabbit, as keeping it light with a white to compliment their fresh line-caught Halibut or nightly tartar.

3. Restaurant Le P’tit Plateau

330 Rue Marie-Anne E

pictureA personal favorite of mine, this quaint French restaurant (it seems like all the good BYOB’s are French) is nestled away on a side street in the plateau. You feel like you’re in a different city (maybe Paris?) when entering this small-ish bistro. With an open kitchen concept and an incredibly knowledgeable staff, you’ll be delighted by the dishes they serve: they are simple yet expertly crafted. Some of the best foie gras and duck in the city.

2. Pizza Napoletana

189 Rue Dante

pictureIf you’re looking to keep it a little more casual but don’t want to compromise on the food, Pizza Napoletana might be the place for you. Located in Little Italy, this restaurant focuses – as the name suggests – on Pizza and Pasta. The décor won’t knock your socks off, but you are coming to eat a good meal at a good price and it disappoint. They do have solid meat dishes but they’re definitely known for their phenomenal pizzas. You can easily get out of the restaurant being sufficiently full with a bill under 30$ a head.

1. La Colombe

554 Ave Duluth E

pictureThis has been the most popular BYOB restaurant in Montreal for some time now. La Colombe is located on Duluth street, one of Montreal’s most popular BYOB strips. La Colombe might also be one of the most expensive BYOB’s on the list as well. If you’re looking for an upscale dining experience with the ability to bring your own wine, this is the place for you. This is a traditional French restaurant that specialize in foie gras, cheese plates, escargots, venison, etc. Make sure you bring a classic French wine to this meal.

Montreal Eats: Schwartz’s Smoked Meat

When coming into Montreal on a Bachelor Party, you’ll have your fair share of nice meals. Steakhouses are usually a big hit, and so are some of the supper clubs. The only meal of the day that doesn’t get a lot of love is lunch.picture

Upon visiting any new city, it is always a good idea to check out the local institutions. Montreal is famous for having a couple culinary delights: Bagels, Poutine and Smoked Meat. When searching for the best smoked meat in town, it’s well known that Schwartz’s is the best around. Schwartz’s smoked meat could possibly be the best sandwich anywhere in the world!

pictureSince you’ll probably be traveling here on the weekend, you’ll have to endure the usual weekend line, but don’t worry, you could always skip the line and get Briskets and Breasts. Once inside, you’ll be seated at a European-style communal table with other guests. There are lot’s of choices on the menu and you may think of diverting from ordering smoked meat. Stick to the plan. You can eat smoked turkey breast anywhere else. Order the medium sandwich with a pickle, fry and coleslaw on the side and wash it down with a black cherry cola. You’ll understand within the first bite why the line was so long, and why people have been talking so highly about the world famous Schwartz’s.

The $25,000 Hangover: Montreal Grand Prix Recap

Two Guys, Three Days, $25,000 in Champagne

People always wonder what my job actually entails? They think that I just go out, drink with clients, party, and live the VIP life. This last Montreal Grand Prix weekend I did, in style.

Friday

It all started when two of our perennial Montreal Grand Prix guests rolled into town. These guys work hard and play harder. This year was no exception.

It all started Friday night when we bypassed the 100+ person line-up outside Globe and were escorted by the owner himself to our table. Food and drink is marked up 3-4 times its regular price to make sure the supper clubs are weeding out the pretenders and ensuring exclusivity.

We dinned on oysters and lobster (well they did, I am allergic) and our guests ordered a magnum of Cristal which appeared with four of the model-quality staff in tow. A bill creeps from manageable to insane in about 2 Magnums of Cristal. Unfortunately, 2 bottles won’t successfully whet the appetites of seemingly all the waitresses at Globe. 14 was the magic number and by the end of the night, the restaurant was not only running out of champagne and sparklers. The rest of the evening was a blur, but the first night bar tab came to well over $12,000.

Saturday

pictureI woke up with the worst hangover of my life. Slept all day. The manager of Globe invited us back (obviously) so I called my guests and told them we had the keys to the city. They wanted to return to Globe since it worked out so well the first night (from the photos they sent me). We rolled into Globe Saturday night like rockstars. We had the premier table in the place, even better than the actual celebrities who were there. The evening was another blur of magnums of Cristal and Dom just with more girls. I wish I could remember the rest.

Sunday

Woke up on death’s door and missed the big race. We were invited to Buonanotte (same owners of Globe) to a private party where many of the race teams and drivers were in attendance. While the champagne was flowing, some clarity ensued, and we kept it to a measly 4 magnums. Our guests had no problems keeping up, ditching me and leaving with some real stunners.

Montreal Grand Prix is always crazy and this was by far the most insane F1 weekend to date…I’m glad it’s over, but there’s always next year!

Top 5 Bachelor Party Destinations

When starting the planning process of organizing a bachelor party, there are many details that must be taken into consideration. One of the most important details is where the bachelor party will take place. The destination can often make or break a bachelor party weekend. We’ll go through the list of the top 5 bachelor party destinations in North America, from the most obvious choices to less likely options.

5. Atlantic City

pictureWe were debating on whether AC or NYC should grab the 5th spot, but after carefully assessing all of the pros and cons, we opted to throw Atlantic City in at 5. AC is Las Vegas’ dirty ugly cousin. If you are in need of a gambling fix, and don’t want to leave the Northeast for your bachelor party, Atlantic City is the solution to your problems. Atlantic City’s strip clubs are BYOB, which makes for a very interesting night. Don’t forget your hand sanitizer! There’s a multitude of places to stay on the cheap and there are decent restaurants in some of the casinos, so not all is bad in the AC. Atlantic City serves a purpose, it’s a hit or miss kind of town, so after you exhausted all other options, head to Atlantic city for a bachelor party.

4. Miami

pictureMiami is slowly becoming a popular option for bachelor parties. Sun, sand, and booze never make for a bad plan! Miami has some of the slickest boutique hotels anywhere in the world with beautiful people everywhere. As for the girls, your cologne better smell like freshly printed money or they aren’t going to give you a whiff. Like all great bachelor party destinations, you’ll need to have a solid hook-up in Miami to get a big group of guys in anywhere.

pictureSimilar to Vegas, all of the best nightclubs are very expensive, with venues that will give away your reservation without notice. The Strip Clubs are huge and fun but they are all far from South Beach, which makes for hitting up multiple venues in one night difficult. One of the main reasons you decided upon Miami is the fact that the weather is beautiful, just make sure you go during the right time of year or you’ll be partying in a Hurricane shelter. Miami is an ambitious bachelor party destination, and, weather permitting, a very good choice.

3. New Orleans

pictureNew Orleans is a city steeped in history. NOLA has had its troubles of late, but seems to be slowly bouncing back from Hurricane Katrina. It has a distinct Creole flair similar to the French Canadians up in Montreal. New Orleans is becoming a popular bachelor party destination because of the abundant culture found in town, and due to the fact that prices aren’t stratospheric like Vegas or Miami. However, finding a good strip club in New Orleans is a crapshoot, you never know what you’re going to get.

pictureThere’s no better time to go down to NOLA then Mardi Gras, as the city is taken over by revelers looking to party hard. I would only recommend going during an off-summer period. I thought Montreal’s humidity was bad until I mistakenly went down to New Orleans in the summer: the humidity is overpowering. Although the city has cleaned itself up, don’t go wandering down any side streets, crime is still an issue in the French quarter.

2. Las Vegas

pictureWhen thinking of destinations for a bachelor party, Las Vegas is the first city that comes to everyone’s mind. We’ve all seen The Hangover, and would definitely like to re-create something out of the movie. There is something for everyone in Vegas. Amazing hotels, gambling, delicious restaurants, mega-clubs, mega strip clubs, gun ranges, etc.

pictureYou most definitely have to go to Vegas at least once for a bachelor party, it is the definition of living every man’s dream. Since no one is really from Las Vegas, going out to a club is the same for everyone, because everyone is a tourist. Las Vegas strip clubs are warehouse style with many levels of VIP and champagne rooms. If you want to enjoy yourself, then you better bring some of those gambling winnings. No doubt, Vegas is a good choice for a bachelor party destination, but sometimes it just isn’t suitable. Budget constraints, travel distance, or just the fact that you’ve done Vegas so many times may be some of the reasons that people get turned off by Sin City.

1. Montreal

pictureMontreal has become a big contender as a bachelor party destination. It has been slow growth through word of mouth and curious travelers. We hear it all of the time, “I have never even thought of coming here for a bachelor party”. Recently, it seems that more and more people are catching on. Summer is THE time to come to the city. Everyone in Montreal takes full advantage of the warm summer months. The city is inundated with amazing international festivals and the Formula One Grand Prix. There is plenty to do no matter when you come in.

picture Another reason why Montreal is a big draw is due to its pricing. Compared to the other cities on the list, prices are significantly lower. The strip clubs in Montreal are world-renowned as they are not only small and intimate but they are notoriously “full-contact”. It is known that Montreal has some of the best looking women anywhere in the world and it’s glaringly obvious as soon as you hit one of the many nightclubs. There is a big emphasis here on food and drink, so expect your bachelor party to be well fed when visiting. The culture of Montreal is intoxicating, and you’ll see what everyone is talking about after you visit on a memorable bachelor party.

Did you expect us not to put Montreal as the #1 bachelor party destination?
