The Best Fall Activities For A Montreal Bachelor Party

We aren’t going to sugar coat this one, but summer is definitely the best time to have a bachelor party in Montreal. It’s okay you can always come back for a boy’s weekend next weekend …Don’t be disappointed though if you happen to come in October, there is still plenty to do (Including some activities you can only do in fall!)

Here are the 5 best fall activities for a Montreal bachelor party:

Curling

We’ve already laid out why curling is a great daytime activity and it is one of the best things to do in the fall. It’s a unique experience for any bachelor party and adds something special to the weekend. First, you’ll learn how to play the game in one of the oldest curling clubs in North America. You’ll then be split into two teams and get competitive. Luckily, there is a bar on site to add some excitement to the afternoon. Losers buy next round!

College Girl Pub Crawl

Fall in Montreal is cold. Drinking is a down right necessity just to stay warm. You’re going to day drink  anyway so why not add some heat to the afternoon by having some local college girls lead you around on a pub crawl. You and your buddies will discover some bars you would have never found on your own, get drunk, and have some hot girls break up the sausage fest that is a bachelor party.   

Hot College Girls

Canadiens Game

The Canadiens are Montreal’s only professional sports team (R.I.P Expos) and every home game is one giant party. Whether your bachelor party cares about hockey or not, going to a game is an experience like no other. I highly recommend getting tickets (We can help!), getting drunk on Molson’s, and heckling the players…It’s an authentic Montreal fall activity.

Pick Up Hot Montreal Girls

Fall is the perfect time to pick up hot college girls for a number of reasons. School is back in session, it’s cold, but not too cold to go out yet, and French Canadian girls are notoriously “friendly”. It also helps that people don’t barhop as much as they would in summer and tend to stay put in one spot. Here are your best bets for meeting hot Montreal girls.

Axe Throwing

Bored lumberjacks created axe throwing and somehow it has become a favorite daytime bachelor party activity. Most Canadians get drunk and find some random forest to do their axe throwing, but we’ll start you off easy, eh. The competition that axe throwing brings is always a welcomed addition to any bachelor party.

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 Getting Brisket And Breasts Might Be The Best Decision You Make All Weekend

Here at Connected Montreal, our goal is to make your bachelor party as epic as possible during your time in Montreal. That being said, we know there are only so many hours in the weekend and most groups want to pack in as much as they can. That’s why we came up with Brisket And Breasts. Unlike those 5 shots of tequila at 2 P.M., here’s why getting Brisket And Breasts is one of the best decisions you’ll make all weekend:

Smoked Meat

There are three foods you have to try when visiting Montreal. Stops for poutine, bagels, and smoked meat are necessary at some point during the weekend. While there are a few smoked meat places, Schwartz’s is by far the best. The only problem is the line on any given weekend wraps around the block throughout the day. We’ve helped you solve this problem and save you the hassle of waiting in line by being able to get Schwartz’s catered directly to your house or hotel.

Brisket And Breasts

Topless Girls

There are certain things that are necessary to do on a bachelor party (steak dinner) and certain things that should be avoided (NOT prepaying your lap dances). One thing that is absolutely necessary for any bachelor party is strippers. It brings some excitement to the weekend and ensures that, at least for an hour or two, your bachelor party is not a total sausage fest.

Topless Girls

Kill Two Birds With One Stone  

In the name of efficiency (and because it is genius!), we have combined both Schwartz’s and topless girls to create Brisket And Breasts. You’ll get to try delicious smoked meat without leaving your house or hotel all while you get served the food by topless girls. In our opinion, the enjoyable scenery adds some flavor to the smoked meat.

Brisket And Breasts

Pro Tip: To take the bachelor party to the next level, add in some topless beer pong to pregame before hitting the clubs.

Give us a call at 1-877-490-6919 or email us to get started today!

Best Fall Day Drinking Spots In Montreal

As long as alcohol has been around, people enjoy consuming booze at different hours during the day and night. The whole point of a bachelor party is to be as drunk as possible for as long as possible throughout the weekend. Montreal day drinking is a must. Although we have sadly bid farewell to summer 2018 and have already laid out the best day drinking bars in Old Montreal, here are 5 of our favorite fall drinking spots in Montreal:

Vices And Versa

If you are rolling with a group of beer snobs, Vices and Versa is the bar that you need to head to. With a dizzying selection of local Québec craft brews and hard to find European beers all written on a hipster approved chalkboard, the bar is a great place to kick back and relax with your crew. If you want some sophisticated eats with your regional beers, get the charcuterie and cheese plate. No better way to experience Montreal than being a classy drunk.

Fall Day Drinking

Siboire

Much like Vices and Versa, Siboire offers delicious regional brews. They often rotate their beers every week so the selection is superb. What we like about Siboire and what they are known for is their beer flights. You can try up to 6 small sample sizes of the beers of your choosing. Pair this with their fish and chips while watching the Habs game on their giant flatscreen TVs.

Siboire Fall Day Drinking

Dieu Du Ciel

This is a great Montreal day drinking spot! Across the street from Siboire is the shining star in Montreal’s craft beer scene. Dieu Du Ciel has consistently been ranked as one of the best breweries in Canada. They are known for their classic, freshly brewed Péché Mortal Bourbon, which has been voted one of best craft beers in the world. The only downside is that there food menu is lacking so grab some lunch ahead of time.

Dieu Du Ciel Day Drinking

Benelux

This a classic bachelor party spot and it is the perfect spot to kick off any drunken daytime adventure in Montreal. With its central downtown location right on Sherbrooke Street, it is a great bar to throw some party girls into the mix (We can also set up a college girl pub crawl if you want us to do the work for you!). Be sure to try their IPAs (Our favorite is their West Coast IPA). With its close location to all the universities, it’s ideal for meeting a few local hotties.

Benelux

Le Sainte-Élisabeth

Le Sainte-Élisabeth is definitely a hidden gem. You might never find this place on a small street off of Saint-Catherine Street, but it’s well worth making the trip. It’s got something for everyone from your beer belly Bud Light drinkers to elegant, dressed up European beers like Delirium. It’s more of a down and dirty drinking spot compared to your fancier craft beer spots that we previously mentioned. A nice bonus is that the bartenders are hot, French Canadian girls. No better time to practice your 10th grade French after a few drinks.

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.

Connected Montreal Summer 2018 Recap

Labor Day has come and gone, which means yet another crazy Connected Montreal summer is in the books. 2018 was by far our busiest summer yet. We were sold out every weekend and we swear we almost burnt the town down a few times (Very close call on Grand Prix weekend, but we’ll get to that…) Here are some highlights from this past summer:

Grand Prix Weekend

Grand Prix Weekend is the official unofficial start of summer. Taking place on the first weekend of June, everyone is ready to party hard and girls are extra “friendly”. It’s a weekend that is made for big ballers and those that are ready to flash some cash. We had some new faces and old pals come party with us this year. $18,000 worth of Moet, Veuve, and Dom P each night, hot girls, a sparkler incident that almost went wrong and partying with some of the drivers including Lewis Hamilton on Sunday night were definitely the highlights. The weekend is still a blur to us…We came. We saw. We drank champagne.

Champagne Montreal Grand Prix 2018

 

Most Booze Consumed

While these guys from Chicago gave this group a good run for their money, nothing tops the $5,000 worth of vodka, whiskey, and tequila that a group from San Francisco ordered. We had it pre-stocked at their house waiting for them upon arrival. We didn’t even mention the $2,000 worth of bottles they got at the club…it’s unclear whether these guys were sober at any point during the weekend. At least that’s one way to avoid a hangover…or guarantee to have one for the rest of 2018.

Pre-Stocked Fridge Grand Prix Weekend 2018

 

Most Amount Of Topless Girls

We always like to see groups that try to push the limit and see at what point they get tired of seeing nudity. We’re pretty sure these guys hit that point. They started one night innocently enough with some good ol’ fashioned topless beer pong. For dinner, they did a naked sushi with 4 topless waitresses and for dessert, they got a lesbian show…with 10 girls. Yes, you read that correctly, 10 girls. Bravo, you weirdos.

We invite you to try and take this title next year. Here are some ideas to get you started…

Strippers Summer 2018

Strangest Request

When you are in the bachelor party industry, you are bound to get some strange requests. It’s part of the business. This year, we had a group call up and tell us they were big Star Wars fans. They wanted to know if they could get some strippers to do a show in Princess Leia costumes. Since we’re known for making anything happen, we found some outfits and made it work. For good measure, we sent along a midget in a Yoda get up.

For better or worst, he’s spent years of his life  in strip clubs, bars, and other nightlife institutions…Or shall we say they were lucky enough that he graced them with his presence. Without further ado, we are pleased to introduce you to the one and only, Hurricane Tony:

Best Montreal Supper Clubs In 2018

Supper clubs are found in other cities, but nowhere does supper clubs like Montreal. For those of you that have never heard of a Montreal supper club, they are eateries during the evening that turn into full blown nightclubs after dinner is served. They are consistently some of the best places in Montreal to party. How could they not be? With a great mix of delicious food, model hot girls, bottles, and the fact that you don’t even have to leave to go party, it’s no wonder reservations are nearly impossible to get. Luckily, with our connections, you won’t have that problem. Here’s the best Montreal supper clubs to check out in 2018:

Bord’elle

Leading the resurgence of the Old Port, Bord’elle is a great option for a more sophisticated group. Modeled after a 1920’s speakeasy, the food is incredible. We recommend you try their Filet Mignon in a VSOP cognac glaze, but there is nothing we don’t like on the menu. Once the clock strikes midnight, Bord’elle comes alive and the champagne starts flowing. If you head to this club, be prepared for a rowdy time. It is one of the best places to party on Thursday nights and is a go to spot jump off point for our groups that think they can handle 3 massive nights of partying…To them, we say good luck. Bord’elle will give you all you can handle and than some!

Bord'elle Montreal 2018

Soubois

Soubois, French for “Underground Forest”, is the perfect spot for those that care more about the scenery than the food. For starters, the space is unique and looks like you are surrounded by trees. It’s a nice touch, but you didn’t come for the interior design. The food is good, but their very hot waitresses steal the show. Consider it a practice round for you and your buddies to get warmed up talking to locals. Soubois is a solid spot on Friday, but is reliably great on Saturday.

Sousbois Montreal 2018

Flyjin

Located down the street from Bord’elle in the Old Port, Flyjin is a smaller, more intimate supper club. Their menu was created by renowned, international chef Antonio Park. The miso black cod is to die for. Unfortunately, this club only works best with groups of 10 or less since anything above that, your group would be 10-20% capacity of the club. What club wants a good portion of their clientele that night to be guys? None. (Of course, we could always tip the scale in your favor if you bring along some party girls..)

Flyjin Montreal 2018

Joverse

This laid back, casual supper club is ideal for larger groups or for guys that don’t want something too fancy. It’s not as pretentious as some of the other supper clubs that were previously mentioned. It’s a great place to party with less crowds and is more relaxed. The crowd tends to skew a bit younger, which means hot, impressionable girls so we generally recommend Joverse for groups that are more budget conscious, but still want to ball out during their time in Montreal.

5 Best Clubs To Pick Up Models

Montreal is known for its hot girls, but we know you. You want the best of the best. You’re coming to Montreal for the weekend so you might as well go for gold and hit on the hottest models in the city! We all know you can only hide your lack of personality with your wallet for so long, but luckily, these girls don’t care. They will gladly listen to your terrible pick up lines…if you have enough Dom P and Veuve around. Here’s 5 clubs to test your luck and try to pick up hot models:

Sousbois

This downtown supper club is known for looking like an underground forest and for its gorgeous wait staff. Just going to dinner with your buddies turns into an head turning event. It’s a good way to kick off the night and flirt with a girl that is being paid to laugh at your awful jokes. The real fun starts when the dinner service ends, the lights dim, and the place turns into a club. Due to how exclusive Sousbois is, the quality of girls is high and models know that big ballers come here. In our experience, the more bottles, the hotter the models.

Montreal Models

La Voute

One of the newer clubs on Montreal’s nightlife scene, opened in 2017, La Voute (French for “The Vault”) is currently one of the trendiest clubs in the city. It has massive lines every weekend, but with our connections we can get you right in and bring you straight to your table. Party girls would be an excellent addition (as they always are!) at La Voute as every model in Montreal wants a taste of this club.

Montreal Models

Bord’elle

An eatery by day and club by night, Bord’elle is teeming with hot girls once the clock strikes midnight. From model hot bartenders to acrobats swinging around the club, Bord’elle attracts plenty of talent. Be sure to at least put a nice shirt on because this club attracts the more upscale, well-dressed models. Sure, they may seem intimidatingly hot at first, but really they are fishing for compliments…

Montreal Models

New City Gas

This 4,000 square foot club is located in the up and coming Griffintown neighborhood that’s well known to Instagram models that love to party. The models that come here love their fruity drinks, selfies, and anything shiny. Get bottles and you’ll soon have every girl that you awkwardly followed on social media swarming your table. Who knows maybe she’ll think your not a degenerate and she’ll feature you in her #IGStory…

Montreal Models

Rouge

Rouge has been in the game for over a decade so you. It brings in a younger French Canadian crowd. If you’re looking for trashier, model hot girls, then Rouge is a safe bet. While not as sophisticated as some of the other places on our list, Rouge makes up for it by being a great time and the friendliness of the girls. Getting a few bottles at Rouge will take you far and the whole club, including hot girls, will be at your table.

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.
