Montreal Bachelor Party Review: 26 Guys From Chicago

The Setup

Last week, we had a bachelor party group that came in from Chicago and the average age of the party was 31. They wanted to have a nice dinner, a boozy brunch, some clubbing thrown into the mix, and your traditional strip club visit for their Montreal bachelor party. They didn’t want anything too out of the ordinary, but the only challenge was the group’s size. 26 is a massive bachelor party. Luckily, we have all of the contacts necessary to pull off accommodating such a large group.

The Plan

The guys originally wanted to tackle their accommodation situation on their own, but we they finally saw the light when we had an opening for them at our 3430 Sainte Famille property. (Click here to see the house brochure.) Here’s a breakdown of their weekend:

-Our (Gold) standard services: host, no cover, no waiting in lines, no tipping for entry, itinerary, no reservations, suggested beer/ activities tour
-House built specifically for bachelor parties in the perfect location. 4 floors, 5 bedrooms, and 4,500 square feet to get crazy
-Supper Club
-Brunch
-Strip Club Visit, 3 Bottles Total
-VIP Table Both Nights, 8 Bottles Total
-5 Party Girls To Break Up The Sausage Fest

Execution

When dealing with such a large group, timing is key. We wanted to make sure the guys had enough free time to not feel like they were on a 8th grade field trip, but enough going on to occupy their time. This way no one in the group will burnout and miss an event or two because they are nursing a wicked hangover from the night before.

Two weeks before the arrival of the bachelor party, we sent over a tentative itinerary that laid out exactly how they weekend would look. We fine tuned some of their itinerary and locked everything down the week of their arrival.

 Recap

I don’t want to get the guys in trouble with their significant other, but what I can say is that the weekend was a great time and went off without any hiccups. Everyone still has their job. No one went to jail. The guys already are planning a boy’s weekend next year…Only difference is they want a lesbian show next time they roll through town. Well played.

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.

Age

From

Montreal

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.

How To Kick Off Your Bachelor Party With A Bang

It’s one thing to arrive, but it’s another to make a statement. If you really want to kick off the bachelor party with a bang (no pun intended), we have a few suggestions. From friendly, hot girls giving you a sight to behold in the privacy of a limo to having the fridge stocked with whatever liquor and mixers you desire, we have you covered. Here’s the ultimate bachelor party welcome to Montreal:

Ultimate Airport Pickup:

You could be like every other bachelor party group and take an Uber to where you’re staying. Instead, kick it up a notch and pile the guys into a party bus with strippers in tow. The girls will put on a show that will put the weekend on the right track. We can even throw a midget into the mix and have your preferred booze waiting for you. By the time you get to the house or hotel (Check out this purpose built bachelor party house), the bachelor will have already forgotten about his upcoming wedding.

Ultimate House/ Hotel Arrival:

Fully Stocked Fridge Bachelor Party Arrival

Fully Stocked Fridge

You could be like every other bachelor party when they arrive to their house or hotel and immediately get the WIFI code to find the nearest liquor store. You and your crew, however, are already drunk and ready for more. When you arrive, we have already stocked the fridge with water, Sprite, Coke, and tonic water. The bottles of vodka are ice cold in the freezer. 3 bottles of Hendrick’s Gin are waiting in the kitchen and we threw in a bottle of Johnnie Walker Black, the bachelor’s favorite, as a token of our appreciation.

Party Girls

You could be like every other bachelor party and go wander St.Laurent aimlessly, trying to hit on anything that moves. You and your crew don’t have that problem. You have hot, local party girls waiting for you to arrive and ready to start playing drinking games with you. The sausage fest suddenly gets interesting.

Topless Beer Pong

Speaking of hot girls, playing beer pong against some topless, young ladies as soon as you arrive is the ultimate bonding experience. It’s not about sinking shots, (We know you never made the varsity basketball team anyway…) it’s more about being reminded of your early 20’s prime and enjoying the “scenery”.

Briskets And Breasts Bachelor Party

Brisket And Breasts

You could be like every other bachelor party and waste time trying to find somewhere that the whole group wants to eat at. Your group won’t have to worry about that because you’re already getting Schwartz’s smoked meat catered to the house with topless waitresses like the geniuses you are.

We recommend putting all four options together for the most memorable arrival to Montreal. Call 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.

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.

Grand Prix Montreal 2018

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.

Why Montreal Is The Best Party City On Earth During Grand Prix Weekend

Montreal is known far and wide as one of the best party cities in the world. That’s Montreal on a regular basis. It’s got one of the hottest nightlife scenes on the face of the earth, but when it’s Grand Prix Weekend, Montreal steps it’s game up to a whole other level. It becomes Montreal on steroids. The parties are wilder, the cars are more expensive, and ballers spend more, and the girls… OH the girls! Plus, there’s the whole reason that everyone assembles like they do: the Grand Prix race. However, with every passing year, the focal point is less and less about the race and more and more about the spectacle of the weekend. 

For starters, it’s when all the best parties happen. You can’t turn a corner without running into a VIP event. It’s like every bar, every club, and every venue in Montreal is hosting a special event, all happening the same weekend. Why is this? Because everyone that matters is in Montreal. Grand Prix weekend brings in all the celebrities and all of the top-tier ballers who are looking to spend exorbitant amounts of money to show off. The amount of money being tossed around during Grand Prix weekend is mind-boggling to even consider. 

Montreal Grand Prix

Another huge aspect of the weekend is the cars, obviously. The streets get filled up with some of the most expensive and exotic automobiles that you’ve ever seen. It’s a far cry from Montreal’s typical snow-infested streets we’re so accustomed to in the winter months. Every other vehicle is a quarter-million-dollar sports car or a huge truck on 26-inch spinning rims. It’s like the entire circumference of downtown Montreal is turned into a rap music video from 2004 for an entire weekend. 

Do you know what wild parties, money-spenders, and fancy cars usually goes hand in hand with? Beautiful women! It’s a very simple and logical equation. I believe it was a quote from the classic baseball movie Field Of Dreams: “if you build it, they will come.” If you combine all those aspects together, you’re all but guaranteed there will be some FINE women there as well. It’s science, really. 

Needless to say, Montreal during Grand Prix weekend is like nothing else on the planet. It’s what happens when you take an already-incredible party city and pump it with luxury cars, big spenders, and gorgeous ladies. The result is some of the most insane parties on the face of the planet and a MUST destination location for any party-seeker. It’s not just about a bunch of fast cars driving in a circle anymore.

Summer Recap – Bachelor Parties and Beyond

As Labor Day closed so did the 2013 summer here in Montreal. This past summer was the beyond busy for us here at Connected Montreal. We sold-out almost every weekend and by far threw some of the craziest bachelor parties this town has seen. Here are some of the highlights:

Grand Prix Weekend

pictureGrand Prix is always the first big weekend of the summer. As stated before Grand Prix is catered to high rollers, due to price increases (2-4x for everything) and the added exclusivity of most events. We had some new faces party with us this year and our good pals from last year came too. Due to the post-race party with our buddy Jenson Button the details are still a bit fuzzy,  but I do know this:  Someone tipped a waitress with a pair of ‘s, we consumed $17,000 worth of Champagne, and Jenson promised to give me a good deal on his Porsche

Most Amount of Nudity

pictureWhile no one has topped our Ultimate Bachelor Party from last summer. One came pretty damn close, could have been the best in suite party of all time. We had a 12, yes 12,  girl show with 2 naked waitresses, a naked sushi buffet, and a midget pouring Johnnie Blue for everyone like it was water. Certainly not a cheap affair, but undoubtedly one for the ages. If you want to top it for your bachelor party in Montreal, we have a few ideas..(Lesbian-Royale-Rumble / Jello-wresting anyone?)

Most Amount Alcohol Consumed

picture This award goes to a group of 17 guys from the South who we rented a gothic style Castle (3 floors, indoor pool, roof top deck, etc) for. We stocked their fridge with enough booze to supply the confederate army: Two 4.5L bottles of Kettle One, Four 1.75L of Jack, Three bottles of Patron, 2 bottles of Rum and 10 cases of beer.

Like themselves, it was all gone by saturday afternoon…

Strangest Request

picture We are still shaking our head at this one. One of our repeat groups must have grown tired of countless attractive strippers putting on shows for them. While the alcohol may have impaired their judgement they were adamant that they wanted to slather two girls in Vaseline and toss Schwartz’s smoked meat at them in order to see who could make more stick. Who says money doesn’t buy happiness?

Reviews

As always the corner stone of our business is making our customers happy. Here are some reviews from this summer:

Top 5 Montreal Festivals for 2018

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

Montreal F1 Grand Prix:picture

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

Grand Prix of Montreal: June 8th-10th

Montreal Beer Festival:picture

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

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

Osheaga:picture

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

Osheaga Music festival: August 3rd-5th

Jazz Festival:picture

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

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

Just for Laughs Comedy Festival:picture

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

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

Montreal Grand Prix: Go Big or Come Another Weekend

The Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal is the biggest weekend of the year. The nightlife scene for F1 is beyond insane to the point where the festivities become the focal point of the weekend. If you are not coming for the race or with a large budget then it’s best to schedule your trip for another weekend. However if you are, here are some of the most important things to know for Montreal Grand Prix:

1.  F1 is expensivepicture

Aside from the $500 race tickets everything over Montreal Grand Prix weekend is very expensive. Formula 1 and its parties attract high rollers from all over the world. Basic hotel rooms sell for 400-500$ per night and bottles at the clubs double in cost. With our expertise you can find some value in all of the craziness, however this is not the weekend for deal seekers.

2. Hotelspicture

Many of the hotels make 30-50% of their yearly revenue during Grand Prix weekend. This means that room rates are 2-3x more expensive than the usual high season rates. All of the best hotels demand a minimum 3-night booking along with a non-refundable payment in full. It is also very important to note that downtown hotels start selling out as early as February!

3. Restaurants and Clubs are slammed.picture

The best clubs for Grand Prix weekend are located on the St. Laurent strip and in the Old Port. Three of Montreal’s major streets are closed for the weekend (Crescent street, Peel street, and Saint Laurent Blvd) and the clubs and restaurants extend their patios onto the streets. The supper clubs are the crown jewel of the F1 nightlife. This is where you will see a mix of drivers, celebrities, and beautiful people go to party. Supper clubs notoriously overbook during F1 weekend, which is the least of your problems, because line-ups get so long that you can’t even get to the hostess in the first place. It is not uncommon for people with reservations to either get bumped to a horrible table or not get in at all.

4. The Montreal Grand Prix is the time of your life.picture

The high prices, expensive hotels, and limited availability all pale in comparison to the spectacle that is Grand Prix weekend. Simply put, it is the best weekend one can have if done right. We have the best connections year round in Montreal and we especially flex our pull on this particular weekend. We personally know the owners and managers at all the best places and ride them worse than their girlfriends/wives/mistresses to ensure our guests don’t have to wait in line and get the best tables at the best spots. The last three years we have been drinking champagne with the drivers at the best parties. Why not join us? Our Montreal grand prix packages will ensure your party will never get stuck in the pits.

 Call 1-877-690-4919 

But don’t take my word for it:

“Oren and Rod are real pros–well connected, knowledgeable and professional. I’ve used them three times to arrange a high-end Grand Prix experience in Montreal, and they have delivered in every way. Great hotel and great tickets to the race, but what really sets them apart is their knowledge of the restaurant scene and nightlife in Montreal. We ate at the most in-demand restaurants and partied at the hottest clubs. With these guys, there’s no waiting in lines. It’s straight-to-the-front, VIP service. People were wondering who we were to walk right past the long line of people who had “reservations” to dine and party with the likes of Jenson Button (who’d won the GPC earlier that day!), Jessie Palmer and Rihanna!  Oren and Rod have got this town wired. I wouldn’t consider working with anyone else to plan an unforgettable experience.”
