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 Cigar Lounges In Montreal

Your bachelor party is a time for you and your buddies to get together and bond over trying new things. New city, new food, jello wrestling with strippers… Sometimes though there is nothing better than a familiar vice, a good old fashioned cigar washed down with a strong scotch. It’s something that your girlfriend/wife/mistress wouldn’t approve of, but is always a crowd pleaser with the boys. Here are the best Montreal cigar lounges:

Best Montreal Cigar Lounges

La Casa Del Habano

La Casa Del Habano is where The Most Interesting Man in the World would go if he were to smoke a cigar in Montreal. Located in the heart of downtown, Casa has one of the largest selection of Cubans in North America, bound to put some hair on your shaved chest. It has any type of cigar you could ever want in their walk in humidor. The smoking area has an open floor plan, great for large groups. For the cigar connoisseur, they have Cohiba, Behike, Partagas, Montecristo, and Davidoff on hand. Pair a trip to Casa with a supper club and a lesbian show and you’ll have yourself an unforgettable night.

Best Montreal Cigar Lounges

Chez Alexandre

The combination restaurant and cigar lounge is a great place to kick off the night before heading to one of the great, morally sound institutions Montreal has to offer. Peel Street’s Chez Alexandre’s smoking room is small, a bit like your grandfather’s man cave, but can still accommodate larger groups and is a nice place to have an after dinner drink, cigar, and watch a game on their wide screen TV’s. For the cigar connoisseur, they have Cohiba, Behike, Partagas, Montecristo, and Davidoff on hand.

Best Montreal Cigar Lounges

Stogies Cigar Lounge  

Stogies is not your father’s cigar lounge. With its sleek design and outdoor seating overlooking the action on Crescent, Stogies is the perfect spot for a group that enjoys the atmosphere more than the actual smoke. Many locals, including some friendly French Canadian girls, visit the lounge before a night out. For the sake of your night though, whatever you do after, go out here instead of Crescent.

Top 5 Montreal Clubs To Get Laid At

Montreal is known as Canada’s party capital thanks to its incredible nightlife and beautiful women. The first thing every bachelor party asks when they arrive in Montreal is, “Which clubs are the best for picking up girls?” Luckily, we’ve done the dirty work for you and done countless hours of market research to find the best Montreal clubs to get laid at…Your welcome.

Here’s the five best clubs to get laid in Montreal:

1. Rouge 

Rouge is the best place to find girls in Montreal on the weekends. Located in the heart of Montreal on Rue St. Laurent, Rouge attracts some of the hottest girls in the city. Be sure to brush up on your French because the crowd tends to skew more French. Although, its notoriously tough to get in with a large group of guys, Rouge is the place to be..and get lucky.

Clubs To Get Laid Montreal

2. Muzique

Going into its 9th year, Muzique is still one of the best clubs in Montreal. Spread out over two rooms, Muzique hosts ladies night on Sundays. It attracts the city’s hottest girls with reduced cover before midnight. You will not be disappointed with the “friendly” locals here.

Club Girls Montreal

3. La Voûte

La Voûte is always a crowd pleaser. One of Montreal’s newest nightlife spots, the club is situated in a former bank vault that has been renovated for clubgoers. Its exclusive so be ready to be a baller. If you’re poppin’ bottles, girls will notice. You can try to be like this group and spend $8,800 a night on Dom P. Good luck!

 

4. Bord’elle

Eatery by day, nightclub by night, Bord’elle has brought great partys and hot girls back to Old Montreal. Be ready to dress up and look your best or else you won’t get into this exclusive night club. It has burlesque dancers and acrobats flying around so if sparks aren’t flying with a special someone that night, something is wrong with you.. Or you drank whisky.

Clubs To Get Laid Montreal

5. École Privée

Another down and dirty club on St. Laurent, École Privée is one of those places that you would feel old if you are in your mid-20’s. The place is wafting of hormones and mistakes waiting to happen so join in on the fun. Just remember to wrap it up or you might have to make another trip up to Montreal for the paternity test.

Where NOT To Stay For Your Bachelor Party In Montreal

Montreal is a pretty small city compared to Manhattan or Chicago, but it doesn’t mean every neighborhood is well suited for a bachelor party. We’ve been planning bachelors parties for over a decade now and we know how important being well located is to having an epic bachelor party weekend. Being in the perfect place close to all the bars and clubs not only saves you money on Uber rides and the headache of moving a large group of guys around, but lets girls know you’re not cheap (definitely sleazy) douchebags and they will want to come to your pad for an after party.

Here is where NOT to stay for your bachelor party in Montreal.

Anywhere Off Island

There is no way to sugar coat this one, but if you’re staying off the island, you’re a moron. It’s right up there with not getting bottles at the club. You came to party and have an epic weekend in Montreal, not St. Lambert. Besides ruining your weekend and making the bachelor party a huge sausage fest, staying off island becomes ridiculously expensive and a logistical nightmare taking Uber back and forth with 10 guys.

Good rule of thumb is if there is a bridge, burn it.

Where to stay for your Montreal Bachelors Party

Address doesn’t say Montreal? AVOID.

Postal code not in Montreal? AVOID.

If your Airbnb says that it is in Laval, Brossard, St. Lambert, Dorval, Pointe-Claire, or any place not named Montreal, GET A REFUND.

Easiest thing to know is stay DOWNTOWN. However, a lot of the honorable hosts fudge the location of their places. Use this guide to determine if it’s really a good location. Or if you want just give us a call and we will tell you in 10 seconds if it’s worth booking or not.

 

Where Not To Stay On Island:

Old Montreal

Old Montreal is a great place to stay if you were, for example, a couple in their 80’s taking in the French architecture. Luckily, you’re not. You are a bachelors party. This district of Montreal is EXTREMELY touristy during the day and is considered more family friendly.  Walk around the area before you go to a supper club, fine, but take the party elsewhere.

Old Montreal Boundaries:

-South: St.Lawrence River                           East: Berri Street

-North: St. Antoine Street                           West: McGill Street

Gay Village

If you walk far enough east on St.Catherine, it turns into the gay village and if you walk into the strip clubs in that part of Montreal, you won’t see women stripping. It’s easy to see why this is the wrong area to stay for a bachelor party…

Map Of Gay Village

Gay Village Boundaries:

-South: Rene Levesque Boulevard              East: Papineau Street

-North: Ontario Street                                 West: Berri Street

Boutique Hotel

We get groups every year that book a suite or block of rooms at any hotel and end up getting kicked out. Why? Because a lot of hotels, boutique especially, don’t allow bachelor parties. They’re great for a weekend get away with your future ex-wife, but awful for bachelor parties. Don’t worry though, we’ve vetted all hotels that we work with and make sure they are bachelor party friendly. Just use as it chance to scout out places to stay on your return trip to Montreal for your divorce party.

Anywhere Outside Downtown Core

There’s a lot happening in Montreal during the summer…but that brings traffic. The joke in Montreal is that you are always 10 minutes from downtown, but everyone knows that is not the case. There are festivals every weekend that close roads and construction detours all over the city. Who wants to waste hours waiting in traffic when you can be making it rain at Kamasutra within minutes? Unlike other big cities in North America, where it costs a fortune to be anywhere near downtown, in Montreal, you can be centrally located and have it be affordable (Check out what houses we have available)

Why Montreal Strippers Are The Best Asset For Your Bachelor Party

Montreal does two things better than anyone else: Food and  Girls. The food scene is one of the best in the world and Montreal strippers are some of the wildest. The rest is average at best. Luckily, these two things alone contribute to a great bachelor party.

Since your foodie hipster buddy with the Yelp elite account and the Bourdain poster in his cubicle at We Work “knows” all the best spots to eat, we will touch on his uncharted territory; woman, in particular the best kind of girls for a bachelor party, strippers. The kind of girls that bring a smile to men’s faces and strike fear into the hearts of your significant other.

First off, if you’re coming to Montreal and you’re not interested in strippers, please click here.

Why are Montreal strippers so good?

Supply

For starters there are TONS of them. Due to a lack of decent paying jobs and abundance of hot girls with lesser morals (Philly 12’s and Boston 11’s), there are way more strippers per capita than in the U.S.

Price

Compared to Vegas or Miami (still paying off my visa bill from Scarlett’s), the strippers in Montreal are pennies on the dollar. For example, a 2 girl show at your Airbnb/hotel is only $600 an hour! In Montreal strip clubs, the lap dances are only $15/song. Any way you slice it, it is a buyer’s market so best to stock up on strippers.

Attitude

Sure there are cheaper “strippers” in Costa Rica or hotter ones in Moscow, but let’s face it, after 10 minutes you’ll want to give yourself the David Carradine treatment. Simply put, the strippers in Montreal are chill, friendly, and fun. Their attitude really shines in a group setting and can turn the party from lame to legendary. Even your cheap friend nursing a beer all night will enjoy the banter and won’t believe the girls genuinely want to talk to him.

Willingness To Do Things On The Cheap (Sorry they still won’t bang you)

So how do you cash in on all these young, fun strippers? Easy. Call us 1-877-469-4919. Not only do we know more strippers then the local Planned Parenthood, we know how to incorporate Montreal strippers into fun situations that will become the piece de resistance of your bachelor party.

Here are some of the more popular  Montreal stripper activities we offer:

Topless Beer Pong $800 – 2 girls/2 hours

Throw a frat inspired party that would make make the tri-lambs proud. What better bonding experience for your bachelor party than getting drunk in the afternoon with some local topless  hotties.

Legs and Eggs Topless Brunch $800+

Erase your hangover with two topless chefs cooking up a breakfast buffet in the buff, we call it “Legs and Eggs”

Montreal Strippers

 

College Girl Pub Crawl $600+

2 (or more) young girls will take you and your buddies on a pub crawl.  Why do a boring brew pub tour with “foodies”? Instead, you can be lead around by 2 young hotties with low GPAs and lower aspirations.  We can tailor the pub crawl to any specifications or theme from beer golf to craft brews. Let us know how sloppy you want to get.

Strippers

Brisket and Breasts / Schwartz’s Smoked Meat Catering $25pp plus $300 per girl

Why wait in line for hours when we can deliver smoked meat straight to you pipping hot, or take it to the next level and have some topless girls serving it to you on a platter.

Top 5 Bars and Clubs in Montreal To Pick Up “Friendly” French Canadian Girls

Montreal is famous having a slew of hot spots, some being a little hotter than others. If your goal is to go home with someone to, um, help you cook breakfast in the morning, then you may want to try out one of these spots:

Chez Serge

Chez Serge is your typical sports bar. It’s got drinks in buckets, constant dancing on the bar, and it even has a mechanical bull (which can yield either sexy or hilarious results from a spectators perspective). The whole place reeks of teenage pregnancy.

Apartment 200

This place is a personal favorite that’s been designed to look like a a cool dude’s apartment. Therefore, every night at Apartment 200 is basically a house party, plus as an added bonus there’s a bunch of vintage arcade games. The place is consistently packed with hipsters and french girls who, after a couple of drinks, will be impressed that you remember when NBA Jam came out. Just keep those Jagerbombs coming!

Distillerie

Distillerie is famous for it’s impeccable drink selection. They’re got mixed drinks so big they would make Bill Cosby blush.

Le Saint Sulpice

Not only is this a great bar and a great place to meet girls, but it’s actually a really nice location as well. It’s a huge outdoor garden/terrace that’s ideal on a nice evening. Oh, and it happens to be right next to the biggest university in town. That doesn’t hurt, either. The Thursday nights at Saint Sulpice are legendary for offering cheap beer and even cheaper women. Ordering drinks here will make you feel like you’re back in Thailand, only this time you’ll have showered.

Montreal Planned Parent Hood

Just kidding, French girls keep it, so bag it up!

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. 

2563058159_3a3f67e552_o

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.

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.

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

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
