The Ultimate Guide To Montreal Grand Prix Weekend 2018

The Breakdown:

The F1 Canadian Grand Prix is one of two Grand Prix’s in North America (the other being Austin, Texas) and Montreal plays host to the international event that attracts over half a million visitors every early June. This year Montreal Grand Prix weekend 2018 will take place June 8th-10th.

Why Experience Montreal Grand Prix Weekend 2018?

The Canadian Grand Prix is on par with the Super Bowl for Montreal. At this point, it’s pretty much considered a holiday in Montreal. It brings F1 race fans to town and big time party goers from all over the world.

Montreal Grand Prix Weekend 2018

This is the most exclusive and expensive weekend in Montreal; however, with the right connections, it can be the best. We’ll make sure you don’t crash and burn!

Is Grand Prix Right For You?

Pairing the biggest weekend in Montreal with your bachelor party can either be a recipe for success or disaster. Because of high demand, prices are significantly higher than any other weekend. Montreal Grand Prix weekend is not for the price sensitive.

If price is less of a concern, Grand Prix will take your bachelor party to a whole new level. The atmosphere is like no other; clubs expand, major streets are closed off to traffic and celebrities are abound. This weekend is often less about the race and more about the parties. Large groups must be mindful that venues require purchase commitments during this weekend.

Most importantly, here’s what to do, where to eat, and where to party during Montreal’s Grand Prix weekend 2018:

What To Do?

The Race

Of course, the main highlight of the weekend is the race that takes place on Sunday afternoon. If you want, you can go on Friday and Saturday, to watch the practice runs and prelims. However, it’s a pain to get to the racetrack with the traffic. We’re not going to sugarcoat this: be ready to spend if you want to go to the race. The cheapest ticket you can find with a decent view of the track will cost you $450, but if you want to experience the race the right way, ball out on a $7,000 hospitality package. Most of time, it doesn’t matter though because our clients get too drunk or too hungover to even go.

Legs And Eggs

With so much going on during Grand Prix weekend, sometimes it is better to just stay at your house (Don’t stay at a hotel during Grand Prix, they all require 3 night minimums) and have breakfast made for you by two hot, local French Canadian girls. Always a crowd pleaser, it’s the best way to understand the culture… served fresh by two Montreal hotties.

Topless Beer Pong

Grand Prix weekend is special so why not spice up your usual beer pong game with your buddies by adding some topless girls into the mix? To be honest, there is nothing that bonds a group of guys better than boobs and booze. It’s a great way to pregame all the festivals and parties happening in the city. Get Schwartz’s catered during the event to line your stomach for the damage you’ll do to your body in the coming hours.

Crescent Street Festival  

All your cheap, sleazy friends will enjoy this one. There’s no better place to be than Crescent Street on Grand Prix weekend. It becomes the main party area during the race weekend. From Thursday to Saturday, the street is closed off and turns into a free festival. There are DJs, cars, food, and hot girls…Exactly what you need for a successful bachelor party.

2018 Grand Prix Montreal

Where To Eat?

F1 weekend is the time for Montreal’s food scene to shine. Already considered one of the best in North America, food plays a big factor in doing Grand Prix right. Every restaurant is trying to sell you their biggest bottle of wine, the most oz’s of Kobe Beef, and 10 pound, $350 lobster. It’s not uncommon for most restaurants to make 40% of their annual revenue in this weekend to give you a grasp of the volume and insanity of the weekend. Many of the best restaurants book up in January and February for this weekend, but miracles can happen. Here’s where to eat during Grand Prix weekend:

Supper Clubs

Supper clubs, for those of you who don’t know or don’t have enough money to experience one, are gourmet restaurants that turn into nightclubs with crazy hot, model staff. Again, the theme of the weekend is money so be ready to spend if you hit up a supper club. We recommend Soubois because they always host some of the best parties during Grand Prix, but we have insider access to some unlisted parties. Message us or give us a call today to find out more.

Poutine

There’s no way you can visit Montreal without stuffing your face with poutine. It’s best enjoyed drunk so head to one of Montreal’s poutine institutions such as La Banquise or Poutineville. If you are the classier bunch, head to Aux Pieds Cochon for a more upscale, less drunk (or more, your call.) poutine experience.   

Steakhouses

Montreal has some of the best steakhouses in North America. Moishes, named by Forbes as one of the best steakhouses in the world, is a great place to go for a group of guys. La Queue De Cheval is another fantastic option. A bit more upscale than Moishes, but you can’t beat their private dining rooms (perfect for a post dinner girl on girl show) and their cigar lounge. Scotch, cigars, great food… Great way to start a night.

How To Party

Grand prix weekend is so much more than cars going in circles around a racetrack. Most people don’t care about the race anyway, no one can name any of the drivers. However, everyone who comes to town is ready to party. Every club in Montreal hosts some sort of event or party during the weekend and most have something happening Thursday to Sunday (Few people know that Sunday is actually the best night to party because that’s when all the racers and their crews come out) The table minimums for every club is higher this weekend so be ready to get bottles, but don’t feel pressured to hit the clubs, there’s tons of free festivals and events going on. Here’s how to do F1 weekend right:

Bigger Isn’t Always Better

The big flashy parties sound cool, but often times it’s just rich douchebags looking at each other. For example, when we hit the Ferrari party last year, there were a bunch of old dudes and we were wondering where the hot girls were. Sometimes it’s better to be a big fish in a small pond and hit up a club like Rouge where hot, local girls from all over the country are partying. Bring some party girls to get even more attention from the young, impressionable girls.

Day Drinking

Usually, Montreal isn’t the best day partying city like Las Vegas for your bachelor party, but Grand Prix weekend changes the game. Like we mentioned earlier, Crescent street has a huge festival, but so do St. Laurent and Peel Streets. The Peel Paddock, located between St.Catherine and de Maisonneuve (walkable from all our houses), is the best place to day drink during the weekend. There’s also tons of bars built out into the streets and most places turn into good day drinking spots that otherwise would suck any other time of the year.

Best Value For Your Bachelor Party In Montreal

We’d say these tips are the best bang for your buck, but you’d get the wrong idea. Connected Montreal has been in the bachelor planning business for over a decade so we’ve seen every bachelor party success and failure out there (some we wish we could unsee). We know your weekend will include a healthy dose of booze and boobs with an unmistakable wafting odor of regret and broken dreams. Let us help you save some money, set you up nicely for your divorce party, and have one of the best weekends of your life in Montreal. These add-ons are the best value out there for your bachelor party.

Bachelor Party House Rental

Unlike Las Vegas, Montreal’s hotel suites do not have multiple bedrooms. A presidential suite at any of the top hotels in Montreal will cost you at least $2,000 a night and can only sleep 1 or 2 people. Our house rentals, however, offer incredible value for any group. They are the same cost per night, but sleep 15+ and have extra amenities such as pool tables, BBQ, and Ping Pong. They are bachelor party friendly with large open space for your entire group and all are ideally located near the hottest bars and clubs in Montreal.    

Bachelor House

Supper Clubs

What is a supper club you ask? Great question. A supper club is a restaurant that after dinner, dims the lights, and the place turns into a club. They are extremely exclusive and are difficult to get into without connections since they have some of the hottest girls and models on staff.  Supper clubs offer tremendous value for your group by allowing them to stay in one place to have dinner and party. Your group won’t have to deal with the logistics of moving around. Luckily for you, we are in the know and can get you into some of the best supper clubs in Montreal.  

Strippers

We have bad news and good news. The bad news is Montreal’s pool party game is weak due to bad weather for most of the year. The good news, however, is that strippers don’t care about the weather and getting a show is a great daytime activity that’s also a lot cheaper than any pool party VIP. The show we recommend to bring your bachelor party to the next level is a two-girl lesbian show or relive your college days, playing topless beer pong with strippers in the privacy of your hotel or bachelor pad. We have done demanding research (someone has to) looking high and low across Montreal for the best looking, fun girls for your viewing pleasure. Your welcome. Who wouldn’t want two young, smoking hot girls going at each other right in front of you? To our knowledge, there is not one guy that has come away from the show disappointed, but there are many guests who regret not getting the private show. Don’t have regret, get the show.

 

Schwartz’s

If you know anything about Montreal, you know that trying smoked meat is a must while visiting the city. Visit on a weekend though, and you could be facing at least an hour waiting in line. Nothing makes a hangover worse than standing in line. Instead, skip the line, stay drunk by playing some topless beer pong with hot girls, and have Schwartz’s catered. It’s unmatched value. Rally the troops, be hungover, wait in line, and waste time or stay drunk, hangout with hot girls, and eat delicious smoked meat without even moving from your rental house’s couch. It’s an obvious choice.

Party Girls

After booze, girls are the second most important factor in having an (un)memorable weekend. Don’t be those guys that think they are too cool and can have models on their arms within hours of arriving. The girls don’t need you, you need the girls to not look lame and have your bachelor party be the ultimate sausage fest wherever you go. Just like our show girls, our party girls are handpicked hot, college girls that know how to have a great time and laugh at your terrible jokes. Get party girls and maybe you’ll have an epic story or two to get inducted into our hall of fame.

How To Pickup Friendly French-Canadian Girls In Montreal

French-Canadian Girls

French Canadian girls are considered some of the HOTTEST in North America. They are friendly by nature, but become even friendlier when a big baller is tossing dollars around. You’ll notice that many of the French Canadian girls look a bit younger than the nightlife scene back home. That’s because the drinking age in Montreal is 18. We know the best ways to pickup hot French Canadian girls. Here’s how:

Buy Bottles

If you want to end up on our Hall Of Shame list, then by all means, don’t buy bottles. But if you want to make the most of your time in the city, buy bottles. A wise man once said, “If you buy bottles, they will come.” It’s not complicated. Buy bottles. Girls will come. Be a legend.

Learn A Few Pickup Lines

Don’t be the guy in the group not talking to girls. Girls like guys that are social and jerks (reminds them of their absent father) If you know any French, don’t be shy to throw that in, just don’t immediately hit her with, “Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir?” or do…Your call. Use these lines instead:

Je suis jaloux de tes soins de santé gratuits (I am jealous of your free health care)

Est-que tu prends la pilule? (Are you on the pill?)

And an all-time favorite (even though we know it’s not true)

Je suis ammanchée comme un taureau (I’m hung like a bull)

Be Aggressive

The world is for the takers. You can be whoever you want to be when you visit Montreal. Always wanted to be a doctor? Well, now you can be! Here’s one: say you’re a porn star and put Ron Jeremy to shame. Montreal is the Sin City of Canada so chances are she won’t even bat an eye. Besides, Canadians are more reserved than Americans so a guy that takes charge will easily be able to invite girls back to party with the boys.

Bring A Sandwich To A Buffet

Hot French Canadian girls attract other hot French Canadian girls. That’s why our party girls are the perfect option for groups trying to meet friendly locals. Not only are they a great time to hang out and have fun with, they give you the social proof you need to bring other hot French-Canadians to your table. Be a Hall Of Famer, bring our local party girls out for a night on the town.  We source the finest young and impressionable ladies to ensure your group is not standing around staring at each other.

Don’t be that guy who goes “Oh, I don’t pay for girls” you know who has a problem paying for girls?  Poor people. In our biased opinion, party girls are great economics considering they cost about the same as a bottle and are forced to hangout with you and laugh at your terrible jokes. It’s Money in the bank.
Montreal Girls

Choose The Right Fishing Spot

When picking a club, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.The most expensive, badass clubs are cool, but not always the best for picking up girls. To be a big fish there you’re going to have to spend more. Depending on how price sensitive AKA “cheap” your group is, head to one of the lesser quality institutions and be a big fish in a small pond. Girls don’t like cheap guys, they like rich guys and bottle service.

5 Good Ways To Detox Just To Retox Before Your Bachelor Party

If you’re under 30, then you can go ahead and skip this article because your body doesn’t have a vile hatred for you just yet. If you’re over 30, then we both know you’re power drinking days are behind you and you have one big night of your best boozing in the tank. As a 34-year old man myself, I find that I am more careful with my drunkenness than with my portfolio. However, when it comes to your buddy’s bachelor party, you are forced to go all in! And sure, by the next morning you’ll feel terrible and hate the world, but that’s expected. Just try one (or more) of these tips to getting back on your feet the next morning (or afternoon) and I guarantee you’ll be 100% by the time you have to do it all over again the next night.

Oh, and before attempting any of these, get some coffee in you…

Go To The (Hetero) Baths

If you’re in need of some serious pampering and relaxation then the hot/cold baths at Bota Bota or Spa Finlandia are a must. Each place has a series of pools with various temperatures all designed to re-invigorate your body. There is also a nice communal aspect and often some good looking girls at these high end spas. If you need even more therapy, then I suggest opting for a massage.

Try A New-Age Float Tank

This is probably the most out-there and interesting idea to detox. I learned about float tanks/deprivation tanks by listening to Joe Rogan rant on his podcast all about them. Chances are most people have never tried it, but I highly recommend trying it at least once. A float tank is a private little capsule filled with half epsom salt and half water. You lay inside the dark tank (there is a light if you get scared of your emotions) floating in near weightlessness. It’s a truly unique experience and an amazing way to unplug and tune out the world for an hour.  You will feel very good after, trust me.

Walk Up Mountain Royal

This is probably the most engaging and most impossible of the ideas on this list if you are truly hungover. However, if you are able to move even a little, it can be a rewarding and cultural experience for you and your buddies. This is also the cheapest and perhaps most effective solution to getting a jump start on your day.  In the center of the city is Mont Royale, which Montreal is named after (it’s OK, I didn’t know this at first either). Mont Royal is the Central Park of Montreal. In fact, the trails and layout were designed by the same guy! While not the steepest of climbs, it’s a great escape from the urban jungle and there is one hell of a view at the top.  If it’s Sunday, walk to the East side of the mountain and experience the Tam-Tams, where hundreds of people gather to smoke, drink, play instruments, and just relax. 

Go Jet Boating And/Or White Water Rafting

Most bachelor parties want to do one benign group activity so that they don’t feel like complete degenerates. While go-karting or paintball are two time-tested traditional options, experiencing the Montreal rapids is a better one! Unlike most major cities, the island of Montreal has some amazing rapids right on the edge of town. There are two great options for the rapids: white water rafting or jet boating.  The best way to differentiate the two is  to call one active and the other passive.  If you are hungover AF or not into exercise (like me), then jet boating is for you. Basically, it’s a large pontoon boat that seats up to 30 people and it dive-bombs into the rapids. Huge waves of water rush over the boat, soaking everyone more than a stripper at a Louis Vuitton store. The white water rafting is even more invigorating, as some of the rapids can launch you out of the boat if you don’t hold on.

Five Reasons Your Bachelor Party Will Suck

Although a bachelor party usually seems pretty chaotic, there’s actually a lot of work involved in getting the right mix of boos, naked, and shady. We’ve been doing this for years now and believe me when I say I’ve seen it all (some I would rather unsee). Make sure to stay away from these big bachelor party mistakes.

Winging It

This is one of the most common and biggest mistakes one can make on their bachelor party in Montreal. You are going to need a few set plans and solid reservations in place, especially in the spring/summer months. If you don’t fit the profile of what a club is looking for and/or are a large group from out of town, don’t plan on getting in anywhere decent without an in. Even strip clubs in Montreal have huge lines. This is supposed to be a special occasion: why wing it?

Not Staying in the Right Location

Montreal is a big city: if you don’t stay in the right area, you’ll spend your whole weekend in cabs. Beyond that, some hotels are a lot friendlier to a big group of drunk guys than others. You want a hotel that will put up with your nonsense and give you the great service you’re looking for. Located around key entertainment districts, these are the hotels where you’re going to want to stay.

Not Doing In-Room Entertainment

Your bachelor party experience is not only about going out, it’s about the whole experience. There’s a lot more to the weekend. Before stepping out, you’re going to need to eat, pre-drink, and get pumped up for the night. There’s no better way to do that than playing beer pong with a bunch of topless girls. Why not eat sushi off a naked model? Hit two birds with one stone and avoid the downtime waiting for the party to start.

Listening to the Locals

First of all, the locals really know what they are talking about. We know all of the best places, where to go for the best steak, whiskey, whatever you want. That being said, the average local does not know where a big group of guys should go. Most of these places will not be fun for an eight person (or more) bachelor party. Also, most locals don’t frequent strip clubs every weekend. Lastly, the drinking age is a liberal 18 here, which means most people have been going out since age 16. This means that by the time they reach their late 20’s, they are tired of the club scene and will recommend places that aren’t really for bachelor parties. Also, let’s just throw it out there, don’t go to the Old Port. It is not bachelor party friendly. It’s a great place to go on a date, ride a carriage, share some tapas – save it for a trip with your wife.

Partying too Hard on the First Night

I see this all the time. The bachelor party arrives and they go out to a club right away. They have a few hours of fun at a club and then they spend the rest of the weekend in bed. Rookies. Be sure to take advantage of the entire weekend and have as much fun as you can. Connected Montreal will make sure even the downtime will be memorable.

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.

Baldwin Barmaciepicture

Baldwin has been a drinking institution for those in the know for years. Always catering to an eclectic mix of young professional types, this place makes a good drink and offers little bites to coat your stomach before a long night out on the town. Baldwin gets packed nightly with a good looking crowd and we like the fact that they offer mini bottles (80z or 16oz) so you’ll be able to pour your own drinks without constantly having to head back to the bar.

Address – 115 Avenue Laurier Ouest

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. Candy 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

How to Drink in Montreal (when over 30) and Survive the Weekend

Lets face it we are no longer in our early 20s, (If you are, then skip this article and go to bed with as many women as you can while abusing your body as much as possible) we can’t drink insane amounts of alcohol multiple nights in a row. We see it time and time again, clients’ multiple night bachelor parties start off with a bang and by the next day half can’t make it out of bed. Their second taste of Montreal nightlife bottles at the club turns into a night of room service and PPV at the hotel.

As someone who drinks on the job, I’ll give you some (legal) tips to make sure you make it through the entire bachelor party:

 Don’t Start Drinking too Early

I’ve seen this scenario play out too many times: a group checks into the hotel and heads straight to the hotel bar and starts pounding drinks. While some people can pace themselves, most can’t. I also find that drinking and then stopping is one of the worst things you can do. Don’t be the guy they have to throw in the cab or the guy who can’t make it out of bed!

Say No to Shots before Midnight

Shots always seem like a good idea, however the purpose of shots is to get you drunk as fast as possible. Why else do you always order shots when girls are around? Save the shots till midnight for girls that don’t know any better.

Vodka Soda Is Your New Best Friend

It’s not just for women with eating disorders, it’s for pros. Look at anyone who works in the nightlife industry and tell me what they drink. Vodka soda. Vodka tends to make you the least hungover and the club soda helps hydrate you. Granted none of this is backed up by science.

Sleep In and Get Your Own Bed

Sleep is important to you and your group. I strongly advise against any activities prior to 1PM the next day. The less planned, the better. Also, if your group has decent funds (i.e an extra $50-100), try to book double occupancy. When you are in bed hungover you will be glad to have your own bed, unless you prefer to get “dutch ovened”.

Stash the Room with Hangover Supplies BEFORE Going Out

All reason and logic goes out the window when you are drunk (luckily for my sex life this applies to women too), therefore stock the room with all the hangover aids and essentials (tons of water/Gatorade/coconut water, B vitamins, Tylenol, etc.) before going out. Or if you prefer, we can do it for you with our Rider Services.

Top 5 Bottles to Order for Bottle Service

Do bottle service the right way! If you are going out to a nightclub in Montreal, bottle service is a must. When the bottle menu arrives, make sure you order the right kind of alcohol for your party. 4 of our top 5 bottles to order on this list are Vodka. Why? Because almost everyone drinks vodka and it mixes with practically anything, and most importantly, girls love it.

5. Patron Tequila

pictureWhile the thought of tequila might instantly bring back memories of a night of regrets, this is not that kind of tequila. Patron is a quality tequila and has gained status in the bar/club scene. Tequila is one of the hottest trends in Montreal nightclubs and Patron leads the way. Order a bottle and the party is sure to get crazy. Girls love tequila shots, and so should you.

4. Crystal Head Vodka

pictureThe nightlife industry is founded on gimmicks and flash. Crystal Head Vodka from Canada is certainly no exception, but we have to admit it’s pretty cool. Vodka that comes in a glass skull is a sure fire way to standout, get attention, and it’s always a good conversation starter with the ladies.

3. Ketel One

pictureThis Dutch vodka brand offers no gimmicks or flashy bottles, but it’s smooth and has a great taste. Often, Ketel One can be cheaper (some times under $200 a bottle) and Ketel One is the vodka-drinker’s vodka. but really, who can really taste the difference between GOOD vodkas?

2. Grey Goose

pictureIt’s the most popular premium vodka out there and it’s the brand that started it all. The brand power and perception that the French vodka producer has built is hard to beat. Their bottles are iconic and it has almost become standard operating procedure to order a Grey Goose when ordering bottles. As the traditional option, ordering Grey Goose will give your table instant class.

1. Belvedere

pictureThis Polish vodka company has been around for ages, but has made a real push into the nightlife scene lately. They offer a great tasting, smooth vodka in a number of large bottles. We love their 3-litre and 6-litre bottles. The 6-litre bottle is MASSIVE and should come with a lifeguard or at least someone to help pour it. Either way, a giant bottle of Belvedere commands attention and it’s a surefire way to guarantee one hell of a night.
