Montreal Bachelor Party Review: Last Minute 17 Guys From Boston

The Setup

Last week we got a call from a group of 17 guys from Boston that were coming in last minute. The average age of the group was 29 years old. Most of the group had attended another bachelor party a few months earlier, while for some they were popping their bachelor party cherry. Little did they know, Montreal bachelor parties are unique. The group, however, was ready to make this bachelor party epic and were down to get as many strippers, midgets, bottles, and party girls as necessary to make the bachelor party memorable (Something we always love to hear.) There was one big problem though. The group didn’t read any of our tips on where to stay in Montreal (AKA Don’t stay anywhere not named Montreal) and booked an Airbnb 30 minutes away in Brossard. ‘UGE MISTAKE.

The Plan  

The guys still wanted to stay at the house in Brossard despite us telling them that would ruin the bachelor party. They soon realized their mistake. When they arrived at the Airbnb, they found out that the place was not theirs as advertised, but the host and his family were staying upstairs. The guys immediately called us and last minute we were able to find them a place to stay. They immediately took an Uber back to civilization and never looked back (If we could only tell you what the house cleaners saw..). Here’s what they booked:

-Our (Gold) standard services: host, no cover, no waiting in lines, no tipping for entry, itinerary, no reservations

-House built specifically for bachelor parties in the perfect location. 4 floors, 5 bedrooms, and 4,500 square feet to get crazy

-4 hot, young, impressionable party girls to prevent the ultimate sausage fest

-Bloody Mary Bar

-Girl On Girl Show

-Midget to add to the fun

-VIP Table both nights, 14 bottles total

-Strip Club VIP one night, 3 bottles total

Execution

It was pretty crazy getting everything together the same week, but we made it happen. 17 guys is a pretty big group and what club wants to have a giant group of guys show up? None, but more bottles is always the solution. These guys wanted to get rowdy and they got 7 bottles each night. In terms of an itinerary, we try try not to put a lot of events in the same day and we like to spread things out throughout the weekend. For example, we made sure the Blood Mary Bar was towards the end of the weekend to wake the guys up a bit and we even kept it a secret from the bachelor. The guys originally didn’t have a girl on girl show booked, but they soon let their sleazy senses get to them and realized they needed something to make the bachelor party even more memorable.

Recap

Overall, the bachelor party went off without a problem and the guys had a blast. While we can’t get into details, the guys thanked us for saving them from almost making a massive mistake and told us they are already trying to make any excuse to their girlfriends and wives to come back.

Strategies For A Small Bachelor Party

If you are less than 10 guys, you are considered a small bachelor party group (We always say that 5-8 guys is the sweet spot for a bachelor party). There are definitely some pros and cons to a smaller group. On one hand, with a small bachelor party group, you have more options and it’s easier to decide on what you want to do and see. On the other hand, you’re always dealing with different ideas and opinions of what the bachelor party should look like. That’s why we’ve come up with three proven strategies for a successful small bachelor party group:

Get A Bigger House Than Expected

It’s funny how with a big bachelor party group, no one cares if they sleep on the couch. However, when you are with a small bachelor party group, everyone expects their own beds and rooms. It’s important to make the whole group happy because one guy can bring the fun to a halt by complaining all weekend. It’s best to get a bigger house than expected (such as our purpose built houses) so everyone has room to spread out and no one will moan about bunking up with B.O Bob.

Strategies Small Bachelor Party

One Daytime Activity

It doesn’t matter if you are a big or small bachelor party group, you should only plan one daytime activity at most. You came to Montreal for a vacation, not to be held down by a schedule. We suggest leaving most of the day unplanned so you can walk around and see the city. It’s the perfect cover up story for when you return home to the girlfriend or wife.

Small Bachelor Party Strategies

Supper Club

You’re a bachelor party so you are definitely going to head out and see what trouble you can get into. You are also going to want to experience some of the amazing food Montreal has to offer. A supper club offers the best of both worlds. Supper clubs like Sousbois are the perfect place for your group to start the night. It’s a great place to catch up and bond with everyone before they turn down the lights and the night gets crazy. Throw in some party girls and you’ll have yourself one epic night on your hands.

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.

4 Reasons To Stay At A Connected Montreal House

Whether you realize or not, where you stay makes a big difference in making your bachelor party epic. You’ll be spending more time at your house than you initially realize. It’s where you and your crew will meet, recover, and pregame nights out. You’ll want to make sure where you stay is well located and has all of the amenities you need to make your bachelor party weekend memorable. Luckily for you, we have houses that were specifically designed to host bachelor parties. Here are 4 reasons to stay with Connected Montreal:

Location

There’s a joke in Montreal that says you’re always 10 minutes from downtown. Everyone knows that’s not true, especially in summer, due to construction, road closures, and tourists.  We know all of the best spots in Montreal when it comes to clubs and restaurants. All of our houses are either within walking distance or a short Uber ride away from all of the action. You’re in Montreal only for a weekend so you want to maximize your fun and might as well save time and money in the process. Whatever you do, don’t ruin your bachelor party before it even starts by staying off the island

Reasons To Stay Connected Montreal House

Amenities

We know exactly what works and doesn’t work in bachelor party rental houses so we made sure our houses have it all. From pool tables to patio space to 65 inch flat screen TVs, we have everything your bachelor party needs to relax or get crazy. There’s no better way to recap the night before than playing a game of pool with a cold one. Little hard to do at the Holiday Inn Express.

4 Reasons To Stay Connected Montreal

Space

No matter the size of your bachelor party, it’s important to have space. Our houses were built with this mind. They each sleep at least 15 guys and have large, open living rooms for everyone to hangout in. There’s no way you can do this in a hotel where you might have to bunk up with another guy. Also, I’ve never met any girl that’s excited at the possibility of going to some no name motel in the South Shore. Mention the address of one of our houses and most girls already know them because they’ve been. Choose wisely.

4 Reasons To Stay Connected MontrealPrivacy

When you have a bachelor party, it’s important to make it unforgettable. One of our in house shows does the trick. Whether it’s topless beer pong, briskets and breasts, or a lesbian show, we still have yet to have one disappointed customer. All of this can take place in the privacy and comfort of one of our houses. No better way to start a night than boobies and booze.

The Best Strip Clubs In Montreal

There are a few must trys here in Montreal. Poutine, axe throwing, and French-Canadian girls make the list, but heading to a strip club in Montreal should be the first place you visit for your Montreal bachelor party. You’re doing everything wrong if you don’t at least stop by a strip club for a few drinks or a bottle at some point during the weekend to take in the scenery. Why waste your time chasing regular girls around when the strip clubs are full contact and the strippers are already naked? Here are the best strip clubs in Montreal:

Kamasutra

If you are used to giant warehouse strip clubs then Kamasutra might seem a bit more “intimate”. This hidden gem is found on a side street off of Saint Laurent. It’s known for its hot, friendly girls and cheap $4 shots. Kamasutra is a bit classier (If you can even say that about a strip club) since they are only open at night and don’t subject anyone to dayshifters. Lesbian dances are available for $40, but you’re better off getting a private girl on girl show  in the comfort of your own place.

Strip Clubs MTL

Club Downtown

Located in the heart of downtown on the bustling St. Catherine Street, Club Downtown is easy to walk past if you’re a few drinks in and is most likely not the first strip club you think of. Despite its low key appearance, Downtown always delivers. It’s cheap $10 lap dances definitely play a big part in that. Just like party girls, you can’t just get one.

Strip Clubs Montreal

Chez Parée

We saved the best for last. We’ve spent many a drunk night getting one too many lap dances in Chez Parée. A long time favorite of visiting NHL players, Chez Parée has been a quality strip club for over 10 years now and plays host to some of the hottest strippers in Montreal. If you only have time to hit up one strip club, you have to pay a visit to Chez Parée. You’ll be impressed with the quality of the girls and even Vegas can’t beat $15 full contact lap dances.

How To Budget For A Bachelor Party

There’s nothing that can end friendships faster than an argument about money. Throw a bachelor party, a few other guys into the mix, and you have a real life Titanic on your hands. When you’re the guy in charge of planning and hounding the group for money, chances are you don’t know everyone in the group. It’s important to follow these three rules when budgeting for a bachelor party so you don’t end up being hated by the group:

How To Budget Bachelor Party

Be A Dictator

We’re not making a political statement here, but dictators know how to make things happen. When you’re the one planning the bachelor party, you’re in control. It’s important to make sure the group’s interests are taken care of while looking out for your own. The beauty of this is you can sell the group on things you want while saying it’s for the good of the group. For example, you want a girl on girl show and you can take the angle that it will make the bachelor party more memorable. See how to do this? Get what you want, be a dictator.

How To Budget Bachelor Party

Too Many Cooks In The Kitchen

Everyone has their own idea about what they want to see and do. Not enough bottles, too many shows, Matt’s girlfriend won’t let him come if you go to a strip club…Everyone has an opinion. If everyone in the group has input on every decision, nothing will get planned.

You’re the groomsman for a reason. The best way to get around this hassle is to not listen to the haters and don’t ask what people want. Instead, give them a predicted budget and itinerary for them to understand what the weekend is going to look like. You’ll be happy you did, that’s all that matters.

How To Budget Bachelor Party

Initial Deposit

No one wants to be that guy hounding other guys, some you might not even know, for money during the bachelor party. It’s best to get an initial deposit from everyone before the weekend starts so you won’t be on the hook for most of the bill. Remember, Venmo is your friend…Repeat… Venmo is your best friend.

Strategies For A Large Bachelor Party

If you are coming to Montreal and you are 10 or more guys, you are considered a large bachelor party. Everyone has different ideas about what they want to see and do. It is easy to see how the weekend can get messy for all the wrong reasons. Here are four proven strategies for a large bachelor party:

Decide On A Budget

In every large bachelor party group, there are always some guys who want to blow the budget out and some who are too cheap to even get a $15 lap dance at Chez Paree (In Canadian dollars might we add…Consider leaving these guys at home.). You want to find that sweet spot that makes the entire group happy.

Leave variable things such as meals and lap dances to guy’s own discretion. However, we recommend pre-paying your big ticket items such as bottles and strippers so they are already accounted for in the budget. If you don’t, you’ll be the guy on the hook for the bill and become a buzzkill trying to hunt everyone down for money. To make matters worse, you might not know everyone in the bachelor party group. There’s nothing more awkward than sending a Venmo request to some random guy before the weekend has even started…and they still haven’t paid you once the bachelor party weekend is over. Follow our advice, pre-pay, and it’ll be smooth sailing.

If you can’t agree on a budget, you could always invite that creepy rich friend pictured below that no one has talked to in years and have him cover your costs.

Strategies For A Large Bachelor Party

One Daytime Activity, If Any

Going anywhere is going to be a pain with 10 guys especially if you’re still feeling the night before (Legs and Eggs can change all of that though.) If you insist on doing a daytime activity such as axe throwing or jet boating, choose one. Otherwise, leave the day unplanned, walk around the city, and get ready for the next night with topless beer pong, for example. Boobies over boats.

Large Bachelor Party Strategies

 

Pace Your Drinking

We know your excited. You haven’t seen your buddies in a while and you’re ready to start pounding shots of Jameson at 11 AM. Easy there…Great when you were in college, but not so great years later on a bachelor party. Slow and steady is the best way to approach your drinking for the weekend. No one wants to be that guy your whole group has to throw in a cab because you passed out in a stripper’s lap. It’s a marathon, not a sprint, unless you sprint your marathons.

Stack The Deck In Your Favor

Trying to get into a club with 15 guys with no girls, who don’t speak French, and may not have the right clothes, is a hail mary. Don’t even try it…or you’ll end up calling us Saturday morning for help. It’s simple. To get into a club, you’ll have to bring girls. Luckily, we have young, hot, and impressionable party girls for your group to party with. You’re welcome.

Strategies For Large Bachelor Party

Whatever you do, definitely don’t make these bachelor party mistakes.
