The Pros And Cons Of Throwing The Bachelor On Stage

If you come to Montreal on a bachelor party, stopping at a strip club is a necessary adventure. It’s fun for the whole group and you might even call it a bonding experience. There’s nothing quite like getting a lap dance from the same stripper and comparing notes with your buddy…Regardless, putting the bachelor on stage at the strip club and having various strippers humiliate him is always an option. It’s a great choice for some bachelor parties, while for others it could ruin the night. Here’s the pros and cons of throwing the bachelor on stage for a strip club show:

Strip Club Show

Pros:

It’s A Good Time

We all know that a bachelor party is never about the bachelor himself, but rather about the other guys on the trip. Seeing the bachelor get degraded and spanked on stage is hilarious to see for the rest of the guys. It’s always great for groups that like a bit more attention from the strippers or don’t take themselves too seriously.

Some Bachelors Enjoy The Attention

While we do offer a dominatrix show, this is the next best thing for those bachelors that are secretly masochists and like to be roughed up a bit. Who knows maybe they’ll discover something new about themselves…You can thank us later. There are bachelors that like to be the star of the show and this is the best way to get all of the attention in the strip club.

Memorable Send Off

Putting the bachelor on stage is certainly a memorable experience to say bye to his single years. He won’t forget his time on stage and it will give you some fond memories to reminisce about until his divorce party in 5 years.

Strip Club Show

Cons:

Unwanted Surprise

Anytime you throw the bachelor on stage, it’s a surprise (or just get him drunk enough..) Either way, it’s a bold move that could backfire tremendously. The bachelor may feel uncomfortable, but in our opinion, that’s the point of the bachelor party. He may not talk to you for the rest of the weekend, but that’s what true friends are for.

Wife’s Pissed

Whatever you do, make sure there is no evidence of the show if his fiancé is crazy. We’ve had a few women call us up about their man’s bachelor party and we tell them they have nothing to worry about…If there is evidence, you guys better have your stories straight. The pictures last a little longer than that handprint on the bachelor’s ass.

Tacky

Sure, we get it…Throwing the bachelor on stage is tacky, but that’s why we love it. It’s one of those traditional bachelor party activities that just completes the weekend. Besides, you’re not from Montreal, so tell the strippers you’re a porn star and make a fool of yourself. If you guys are all tightwads, take 30 minutes just to put gel in your hair, and enjoy staring at each other than putting the bachelor on stage is not for you. Otherwise, get ready for a good laugh.

Why Curling Is A Great Daytime Activity For Bachelor Parties

What’s the first thing you think of when someone mentions curling? Crickets…Sure, the sport is a bunch of grown men sweeping ice with broomsticks, but you probably don’t think of a bachelor party. Once the summer activities start to die down and pumpkin spice season starts, curling becomes a popular activity here in Montreal. Here’s 3 reasons you should consider curling for your bachelor party:

Unique Activity

It seems like every bachelor party tries to one up the next one. Sure, we can easily throw more girls, more strip clubs, and more midgets into the mix, but how many bachelor parties go curling? Now’s your time to finally learn this mysterious game you’ve only seen on TV at the Olympics. Besides, you can finally take pictures (semi) sober with your boys and send it back to the girlfriend or wife…unless you bring along party girls of course 😉

Curling Montreal

 

Fun For Everyone

There are always pros and cons with daytime activities. Some guys may not like getting splashed with freezing cold water if they go jet boating or others may be scared of heights if you go zip lining, but curling is fun for the whole group. I’ve never seen an unhappy sweeper and even though the staff will explain the game to you, half the fun is not knowing what the hell you’re doing. If you’re looking to satisfy everyone in your bachelor party group, curling is a great fall and winter daytime option.

Curling Montreal

Bar   

Any sport that you can do while drinking is already amazing. Just like bowling, curling is made even better with an ice cold beer in hand. Luckily for you, there is a bar inside the curling arena. It helps loosen up the muscles and makes sweeping all the more fun. By the time the afternoon is over, you and your buddies will be well on your way to making the national curling team.

The Best Montreal Hangover Meals

When you come to Montreal on a bachelor party, your going to follow a pretty straight forward formula: dinner, strip club, go out, after party, repeat. Then comes the next morning and it feels like Pierre the midget is trying to force his way out of your head. Luckily, Montreal knows you came here to party and is ready with a variety of hangover food options. Here’s 6 of our favorite Montreal hangover meals:

Poutine

Anyone that’s ever been to Montreal will tell you that you have to try poutine. We’re not sure what they sprinkle on it, but if you’ve ever had a hangover poutine, you know that feeling when you instantly come back to life. There are hundreds of poutine places all over Montreal, but head to La Banquise, a Montreal institution. Walk across the street to Parc LaFontaine to soak in some sun and if you’re feeling bold, have a beer or two with your meal to really clear that foggy head.

Montreal Hangover

Bagels

Montreal vs. New York bagels… We know every New Yorker that is going to read this will defend their own version, but we don’t care since you’re on our turf. Head to St. Viateur for their bagel sandwiches or be a true Montrealer and get bagels with a tub of cream cheese. This is our personal favorite option since the combination of doughy bread with sweet and salty flavors will have you ready for the next big night out in no time.

Bachelor Party Hangover Montreal

Down And Dirty Brunch

Montreal’s brunch scene might not be as developed as the East Coast, but don’t sleep on several great options. L’Avenue is by far one of our favorites. Although the wait can be an hour or more on the weekend depending on when you arrive, the portions are more than generous (Especially the pancakes) and you’ll have a full grown food baby by the time you leave. Of course, any brunch can be turned into a boozy one, so if that’s what you want, L’Avenue is your best option.

Bachelor Party Hangover Meal

Carb Overload

Carbs are a necessity when it comes to proper hangover recovery and Montreal is not short on carb loading options. Boustan’s is better known for its late night shenanigans, but it is also a great daytime eating spot. The Lebanese fast food restaurant serves up delicious shawarma, kebabs and falafel. If you’re more in the mood for a burger, head down the street to Crescent’s Burger Bar. After a quick scan of the menu, you’ll realize that they have already made the choice for you by offering a Hangover Burger. The burger consists of beef patties, cheese, bacon, poutine, truffle oil, caramelized onions, and for good measure, a fried egg. You can thank us later…

Hangover Burger

Dim Sum

This small portion Chinese brunch has exploded in popularity the last few years and there’s nothing better than greasy dumplings to soak up that remaining booze in your system. You really can’t go wrong with any dim sum restaurant in Chinatown on St. Laurent. Most have plenty of room to accommodate any size group so if your bachelor party consists of foodies, this is the hangover brunch for you.

Brisket And Breasts

When you have a pounding hangover, the last thing you’ll want to do is stand in line and wait for smoked meat. Make your life easier and throw some fun into the mix by having Schwartz’s catered to your house with some topless waitresses serving you. Unlike those 3 shots of tequila after drinking bourbon all night, this is a decision you won’t regret.

Where Connoisseurs Need To Go In Montreal

For any true connoisseur of the finer things in life, there are four things that must be savored when traveling to a new city:

  • Food
  • Cigars
  • Coffee
  • Wom…Scotch

 

Welcome to the good life. Here’s where to indulge in Montreal:

Game Meat At Atwater Market

Montreal has several public markets spread out throughout the city that are loaded with local produce, meat, and fish. Walking around the market is an experience by itself with all of the different sights and smells. While there are a few public markets to choose from, we’d recommend heading to Atwater Market. Located right on the Lachine Canal, it is the perfect spot for any of the connoisseurs in your bachelor party group to nerd out. One of the best parts about the market for connoisseurs is that it stocks hard to find game meats such as kangaroo, bison, and ostrich. On the weekend, Atwater is packed with shoppers, but it is worth fighting through the crowds.

Game Meat Montreal

 

Cigars At Casa De Habanos

Casa De Habanos is the place to go for premium, aged cigars. Located right downtown on Sherbrooke Street, Habanos staff is knowledgeable, friendly, and their selection is incredible. You’ll find a wide variety of Cuban cigars, which is always a treat for our American guests. Pair a cigar with some port and you’ll have a great start to the bachelor party weekend.

Montreal Cigars

3rd Wave Coffee Shops

Montreal’s Mile End neighborhood is considered to be one of the trendiest AKA hipster-filled in the world. With a healthy amount of random tattoos, edgy haircuts, and expensive vegan food in this city, you’re bound to find good 3rd wave coffee shops (Whatever that means…) But since you like your artisanal coffee, we’d recommend trying Pikolo or Dispatch. Modeled after an Australian coffee house, Pikolo is centrally located and serves strong coffee that is perfect after a big night out (It pairs nicely with Legs And Eggs.) If you really are a coffee snob, head to the epicenter of all things hipster, Dispatch Coffee. The minimalist shop was designed for the customer to focus on the coffee and not the ambiance. Dispatch is well known among coffee aficionados so don’t be surprised if your coffee roaster buddy sneaks away for an hour or two.

Third Wave Coffee Montreal

Scotch Tasting At Burgundy Lion

If the whole bachelor party is scotch or whisky snobs, head to Burgundy Lion for a private tasting with a resident expert. They’ll walk you through the history behind the booze, where it comes from, and how it is made. They will answer any questions and will happily accommodate any special tasting requests you may have.

We’d be happy to help set you up with a tasting if that is something you’d be interested in. Give us a call (1-877-690-4919) or email us.

Why Getting Party Girls Is The Best Decision You’ll Make All Weekend

You’re a bachelor party. That means you are a big group of guys (AKA a big ol’ sausage fest). In any city, especially one in a foreign country where you might not even speak the language, it’s important to have local, hot girls partying with you to balance out the ratio. It makes the bachelor party weekend that much more fun and prevents a situation where you and your boys are at the club, staring at each other. Here’s why getting party girls is the best decision you’ll make all weekend:

Status

When you roll up to the club with a bunch of guys and no girls, your group looks lame. Throw some party girls into the mix and all of sudden, your group looks way more approachable to other girls. Our party girls are model hot and some of the best looking in the city. It’ll be no surprise when the whole club starts to gravitate towards your table when you are out with our party girls. The rest of the night is in your hands.

Party Girls Connected Montreal

Party Starters

In the bachelor party, there may be some guys you have never met before or who don’t want to party for whatever reason. Party girls are a great way to break the ice and get the party started (Throw in some booze and you have a great night ahead of you.) A great way to kick off your weekend is with a college girl pub crawl. These local, hot, and impressionable girls with low GPAs and lower aspirations will take you and your crew around to different bars and get you very drunk. Some might call it shenanigans, we call it bonding. It’s a simple formula, but it works every time.

Party Girls Connected Montreal

Breaks Up The Sausage Fest

Bachelor parties, by their very nature, are one big sausage fest. Party girls add some flavor into the bachelor party and keep the party going. We handpicked these girls because they are hot, but also since they can talk about other things than how many Instagram followers they have. Yeah they may drink all of your booze, but that’s the point. You’re in Montreal to drop money on booze and boobs.

Host Feature: Dirty Mike

Mike, AKA Dirty Mike, has been a host for three years now. The veteran knows Montreal like the back of his hand and always makes sure that his groups are drunk and have seen plenty of T&A before midnight. Today, in honor of Dirty Mike’s birthday, we are doing a special feature on him so you can get to know him better and just like that stripper at Chez Parée, you’ll want to tip him an outrageous amount.

Favorite Drink

Cuba Libre

Favorite Club/Bar

McLean’s Pub. Ask for Stewart and he’ll hook you up with his 10 Liter Beer towers.

Favorite Strip Club

Hands down Kamasutra because of the intimate atmosphere. No seat is a bad seat and the talent is great.

Favorite Place To Eat

Moishes. They have an incredible after 9 PM special menu. You can get an appetizer and entree for $25. You can’t beat that.

Favorite Stripper Activity

 Girl On Girl Show. The reactions on every guy’s face is priceless.

Hangover Food Of Choice

 Poutine. It’s a classic Montreal food staple that, like a fat girl show, everyone has to try at least one. I’ve seen poutine work wonders and revive those that were struggling from a long night.

Best Hosting Story

I had a crazy group of Marines come to Montreal from California for a boy’s weekend full of debauchery. They were already drunk and rowdy as they got off the plane. One of the guys in the group lost their bag, but replaced it with something more fun.While standing in line waiting for his lost bag, the marine got chatting with a girl who had lost her bag too. The backpacker girl had just gotten back from Thailand and since she lost her bag, she didn’t have any clothes with her. The guys ended up inviting the backpacker girl to their place and needless to say, she became part of the group in more than one way.The guys returned last year because they had so much fun. Those guys were party legends. God bless the United States Marine Corps.

The Ultimate Montreal Bachelor Party Dinner

Having at least one group dinner is a must for any bachelor party. Montreal has one of the best restaurant scenes in North America. Whether you are looking for something more budget friendly or looking to ball out, there is something for everyone. Here’s what we recommend for your bachelor party dinner:

Budget Friendly Option

When a cheap, lazy bachelor party is searching for a restaurant, there’s two important factors. It has to have a per person price and it must accommodate large groups. Milsa on Crescent street fits the bill. Milsa is a poor man’s Fogo De Chao. Everything is just a notch below. The meal comes with unlimited meat and salad with a desert, and at $40 per person, everyone will be satisfied. If your group is more concerned about saving lap dance money for the strip clubs, Milsa is a solid option.

Bachelor Party Dinner Montreal

Take It Up A Notch

If you are a notch above cheap, but not Veuve and Dom P status, a supper club such as Soubois is what you need. Supper clubs serve dinner earlier on in the night and turn into full blown nightclubs after 11PM. The menus tend to be more upscale and paired with bottle service, supper clubs offer great value. Supper clubs are extremely popular in Montreal so they are often booked up weeks in advance. Luckily, we have the connections to get you in, even if you want to book a supper club a few days before.

Sousbois Bachelor Party Dinner

Ultimate Bachelor Party Dinner

Setup

A group of 8 guys from New York called us and gave us free rein to plan the craziest bachelor party dinner we could think of. They wanted to go over the top with the dinner and the group wanted to make it as memorable as possible. We were up for the challenge.

Plan

Here is what we did for the guys:

Naked Sushi

-2 Topless Waitresses

-Girl On Girl Show

-Midget

Naked Sushi Montreal

Execution

We arranged our popular naked sushi for the guys in a private room at one of the best steakhouses in Montreal. We threw in several twists that they didn’t see coming.

The model for naked sushi was one of the hottest in Montreal (And happened to be the bachelor’s fantasy girl…Other than his future wife of course). We’ve never seen guys eat dinner so fast. For the halftime performance, we had two strippers come in and put on a show of a lifetime. The guys told us they actually got tired of seeing naked girls after the night.

To put the icing on the cake, we brought in a midget to serve desert. You should have seen the bachelor’s face when the little guy walked in.

No matter how crazy you’re trying to make your bachelor party weekend, call 1-877-690-4919 or email us to get started.

A Recap Of Grand Prix Weekend 2018

Grand Prix Weekend is always an exciting part of the summer event calendar, but we’d be lying if we said we weren’t glad it’s over. It’s a hazy weekend in our memories, jam packed with events, bottles, and models. We wouldn’t have it any other way. This edition of Grand Prix Weekend was especially crazy with some big ballers partying it up with us. Below is a recap of one group’s whirlwind weekend:

Thursday

The group made quite the landing in Montreal, stumbling off of the plane and slurring their words for immigration officers, but their attention was quickly captured when the group was picked up in a party bus with strippers in tow. They put on quite the show for the guys. By the time they arrived at their house, everyone’s jaws were left wide open. That wasn’t all though. We had party girls and a fully stocked fridge waiting for the guys when they arrived.

Grand Prix Weekend Recap

 

 

Friday   

The guys walked around the Crescent Street Festival that is set up every year for Grand Prix and they took in the sights of Montreal’s best “assets”. Before the weekend really kicked off, they already knew they made a great decision to come to Montreal.

After walking around all day, the guys were thirsty. Luckily, girls came over soon after to play beer pong with them…topless of course. Their shot percentage was awful, but who can blame them.

With a solid buzz going, the group made its way to Kamasutra, one of the Montreal’s best strip clubs. We walked them right in to their VIP section and many soon snuck off to get lap dances. They enjoyed the fact that the girls were hot and local, not girls with names like Anastasia.

To end the night, the guys had a table reservation at La Voute, one of the newest and hottest clubs in Montreal. There was a massive line when they arrived, but because they were with us, we took them straight in to their table. They had the entire club looking at them as they got over 10 bottles and soon had the attention of every bottle rat there. Well played.

Grand Prix Weekend 2018

Saturday

The guys crawled out of bed, nursing crazy hangovers, but decided the best way to remedy the situation was keep the party going. We hooked them up with tickets to Peel Paddock, the best day party spot during Grand Prix. The guys were having so much fun they almost forgot about their steakhouse reservation they had on deck for the night…Almost.

At the steakhouse, they were personally greeted by the owner, who looked after them for the night. They chose some of the best wine and cuts of meat that the restaurant had to offer.

Like the night before, the guys closed the night out at a club, but this time at Bord’elle. The only difference was more more bottles and party girls, which is always a good idea.

 

 

Sunday

The guys were ready to throw in the partying towel, but we’re revived by a Legs And Eggs show that immediately cured their now 3 day old hangover. Breakfast never looked…tasted so good.

They hung out most of the day, but made their way over to Sousbois for their dinner and table reservation. The guys loved the food, which was from a special set menu for the occasion.

To close out the weekend, the guys followed their tested formula of more bottles and models. Only this time, some of the drivers and their crew joined the group at their table. Needless to say, the after party lasted well into Monday morning.

Why Sunday Is The Best Night To Party Grand Prix Weekend

Grand Prix Weekend is pretty much considered a holiday here in Montreal. The city receives over 100,000 visitors during the weekend and everyone comes ready to party. The atmosphere can either bring your bachelor party to a whole new level or knock it down completely. While we already gave you a full rundown of Grand Prix Weekend, we want to show you why Sunday is the best night of Grand Prix Weekend to party:

Race Teams

If you are an F1 nerd, (Honestly, who can even name three drivers in the race?) then Sunday night is your time to shine. Sunday night, after the race, is when all of the drivers and their crews go out and party. So if you’re keen on meeting a driver or two, then you have to go out on Sunday.

If you are like 99% of locals and tourists in Montreal during Grand Prix weekend who don’t know anything about F1, and only care about how many bottles they’re getting, Sunday is the most fun night to go out. Everyone wants to end Grand Prix Weekend on a (un)memorable note. All of the clubs compete to see who can have the craziest closing party.

Grand Prix Weekend Sunday Night

Girls

Grand Prix Weekend is for big ballers and girls know this. All of the hottest girls in the city work Friday and Saturday. Whether it be at the race track, bar, or one of our consulate’s such as Chez Paree, the only night they can go out is on Sunday. It seems like every hot girl in Canada shows up dressed to impress. Be ready to spend though or else they’ll just go hang out with the other rich douchebags across the club.

Grand Prix Sunday Night Party

 

Crowds

Every year we see the same thing. People come in for Grand Prix, get way too drunk the first two nights, and don’t even know what they are missing on Sunday. Every single bar and club in the city is packed and good luck trying to club hop (We can help ). However, for those of you that don’t sprint your marathons and are able to pace your partying, you’ll be rewarded with less crowds on Sunday night as many people leave right after the race.

Montreal Grand Prix Sunday Night

To sum it all up. Drivers. Girls. Less Crowds. Go out Sunday night.
