Besides the location, our houses are big enough to spread out and not feel like you’re on top of all of your buddies…Here’s why you should consider this spacious, modern 3,000 square foot Saint Denis townhouse for your next bachelor party or boy’s weekend:

The living room in this property is the perfect open space for any pre-game, hanging out with the boys, or, if you want to get crazier, a girl on girl show for example.

Best Adventure Activities For Your Montreal Bachelor Party

Besides the drinking and girls that every bachelor party should have, there should also be a competitive or adventure element to the bachelor party. It’s important to get the adrenaline pumping so the group can sweat out the poor decisions they made the night before. We recommend at least one, but no more than two of these activities for a bachelor party. Here are 4 activities that will be some hair on your chest:

Zipline

Eventually every bachelor party takes a stroll around Old Montreal so once you get some liquid courage in you, head over to our friends at MTL Zipline and be prepared to scream your head off. Continue the Old Montreal bar crawl by grabbing some local hotties at the other end of the zipline and head to Terrasse Bonsecours.

Bachelor Party Adventure

Axe Throwing

Is there anything more Canadian than axe throwing? Unless the axe is smothered in maple syrup and you’re wearing a flannel shirt, I’m afraid not. It’s a great way to do something more memorable for the bachelor party and you’ll be well on your way to becoming a true Canadian. Try knife throwing as well, it’s even harder.

Axe Throwing Bachelor Party

Go Karting

In our opinion, go karting is the best option for those that are looking for some good ol’ fashioned competition. Want to kick the bachelor’s ass one last time? No better way to do it than “accidentally” bumping him off the track. Up the ante and bet that night’s dinner at Queue De Cheval on the race.

Go Karting Bachelor Party

Jet Boating

The after party ended at 5:30 AM and you have jet boating planned on your itinerary at 9. While you may rather read the company’s financial reports than get splashed with cold water while nursing a throbbing hangover, we can almost guarantee your hangover will be cured and the guys will be ready for some day drinking on a terrasse after. There’s no better way to wash away the previous nights sins.

3 Ways To Make The Bachelor Party More Memorable

Bachelor parties are suppose to be extravagant and ridiculous. In the Connected Montreal R & D lab, we are always coming up with new ideas to take the bachelor party to the next level. We know what works…and what doesn’t work (Staying anywhere other than the island of Montreal for example.) Here are 3 tried-and-true ways to make the bachelor party more memorable:

Girl On Girl Show

Sometimes in the bachelor party, there are guys you may not know from other parts of the bachelor’s life. There is nothing that breaks the ice like two girls (or more…) enjoying each other’s company in the privacy of your hotel room or house. We’re sure that after this bonding experience, you’ll be fast friends. We’ve even seen the most hard to impress New Yorkers have their jaws on the ground after a girl on girl show. Take the experience up a notch and have the girls do a show in a cigar lounge. Not bad scenery to enjoy while smoking a Hoyo de Monterrey.

Memorable Bachelor Party

Naked Sushi

Nyotaimori, also known as naked sushi for those that speak English, is a one of a kind experience. You’ll have an expert sushi chef create delicious rolls and sashimi on a hot, handpicked model for the whole bachelor party to enjoy. It’s a great way to start the night before you head to the strip club or have a big night out. It’s something you and the boys will be talking about long after you leave Montreal.

Memorable Bachelor Party 3

Midget

Throwing a midget into the mix is certainly not for everyone, but there’s nothing that gets the party started like a little guy in a tuxedo. He’ll pour you drinks, scour the club for hot girls, and add a nice little (pun intended) touch to the bachelor party. Remember that midgets are in short supply so if you break, you buy.

Best Boozy Brunch In Montreal

While Montreal’s brunch game is strong, its boozy brunch scene is another story… Chasing after a good boozy brunch is like finding a unicorn, they just don’t exist. Either you have good mimosas (man-mosas if you are one of those guys) or incredible food. Unlike New York or other cities on the East Coast, pairing them together still hasn’t made it this far north.

Luckily, Montreal has some cooler daytime options beyond what you normally would do back home. The bachelor party weekend can be a whirlwind so we recommend choosing at most two of these daytime activities:

Tame Daytime Options

Go-Karting

Every bachelor party needs to get the competitive juices flowing. Going to the go-kart track is a great way to try and bet your way to free drinks from your buddies. There is no greater satisfaction than watching the bachelor wipe out…Hopefully the wedding isn’t next weekend.

Jet Boating

Jet boating is certainly not for every bachelor party, but if you want to quickly cure your hangover by getting splashed in the face by water on the Saint Lawrence River, this is the option for you. You’ll be ready for lunchtime drinks by the time you’re done with jet boating.

Rooftop Drinking

Summertime in Montreal is made for drinking outside. So why not make it scenic and drink on rooftops in Old Montreal? You’ll have a great view of Montreal’s skyline and it’s the best place to day drink. We recommend checking out the rooftop on the William Grey hotel or Terrace Place D’Armes.

Boozy Brunch

Terrasse Place D’Armes

Memorable Daytime Options

Brisket And Breasts

You’re going to visit Schwartz’s for smoked meat anyway so save yourself time and hassle by having it catered to you. Throw in some topless waitresses and lunch just became way more entertaining.

Topless Beer Pong

Once you’ve lined your stomach with smoked meat, have the girls jump into the fun and play beer pong with you and your boys. You’re shot percentage will be worst than Charles Barkley’s three point percentage.

Topless Beer Pong Montreal

 

Ultimate Daytime Saturday Itinerary

10 AM: Hangover Cure

You had a crazy Friday night, but your buddies are aggressively waking you up to go jet boating at 9 AM. You’re miserable until the first wave smacks you in the face and you suddenly feel invincible. Bring on day drinking.

12:30 PM: Drinks With A View

You and the boys decide to head to Terrasse Sur L’Auberge to start the day drinking marathon. You switch to vodka sodas at the William Grey and decide that shots are a good idea at Terrasse Place D’Armes.

4 PM: Lunch Is Served

By the time you reach your bachelor pad, the girls and Schwartz’s is waiting for you. The group is so hungry that they don’t even notice the topless girls serving them until later… Lunch will never be the same again.

Boozy Brunch montreal

5 PM: Pre-Game

The guys combined their Brisket And Breasts lunch with topless beer pong to start pre-gaming the night ahead. Let’s just say the girls made sure the guys were nice and buzzed by the time they head to dinner.

7:30 PM: Supper Club

Supper clubs are special to Montreal. The group starts off with a delicious set menu dinner by an acclaimed chef at Sousbois before the lights dim and the bottles come out. The guys had to be dragged out of the club.

Do’s And Don’ts When It Comes To Montreal Strippers

Ahh Montreal strippers…Some of the city’s best ASSets. All joking aside, adding strippers to your bachelor party is downright necessary and is fun for the whole group. However, there are some do’s and don’t when it comes to navigating the strip club and strippers shows. Here’s 6 do’s and don’t when it comes to Montreal strippers:

Strip Clubs:

Strippers MTL

DO Pre-Pay Your Dances

We see the same story every weekend. Some guy goes to the strip club, falls in love with a particular stripper, and keeps getting lap dances from her. Eventually, he’ll have to make an ol’ fashioned walk of shame to the ATM machine. It’s okay we’ve all been there…So let us save you. If you get a lap dance, pre-pay your dance. When the song is over, you get up and leave. This leads us to…

DON’T Tip…A Lot

Montreal strippers do plenty fine without your tips so don’t think you’re helping them pay their car loan by slipping them a $100 bill. They may huff and puff that you didn’t tip them, but who cares. Sure, if she does a handstand on your lap, give her five bucks, but nothing more. Just like your stock portfolio, it’s important to diversify the girls you get lap dances from.

DO Make Up A Funny Backstory

Have you ever wanted to be a deodorant tester (Real job, look it up)? Now you can be! The best part about the strip club is that no one is telling the truth. Join in on the fun and make up your own crazy backstory. Bonus points if you and the boys can keep the act up the whole night.

DON’T Believe Strippers

This one goes without saying, but we’ll mention it anyway. Don’t believe a word (one single word) of what strippers tell you. They’ve mastered their fake story and can tell it to you with a perfect poker face. It’s all part of the fun of a strip club.

Stripper Shows:

Montreal Strippers

DO Book More Than You Think

If you experience one of our strippers shows, you’ll wish you had more on the weekend itinerary. The girls are hot, fun, and the best part is that you get to enjoy the show in the privacy of your own house or hotel room. We recommend at least one show, but getting two is the perfect sweet spot. Personally we recommend a girl on girl show and legs and eggs brunch the next morning to really take the bachelor party to the next level.

DON’T Do Late Night Shows

As your Mom once told you, “Nothing good happens after midnight.” In one way she was right. Never get late night stripper shows because neither party is fresh and full of energy. The girls will probably give a lackluster show while you and your crew will probably be exhausted from the day’s festivities. Right before dinner or hitting the clubs is a great place to throw in some topless beer pong to get the night started.

Where Connoisseurs Need To Go In Montreal

For any true connoisseur of the finer things in life, there are four things that must be savored when traveling to a new city:

  • Food
  • Cigars
  • Coffee
  • Wom…Scotch

 

Welcome to the good life. Here’s where to indulge in Montreal:

Game Meat At Atwater Market

Montreal has several public markets spread out throughout the city that are loaded with local produce, meat, and fish. Walking around the market is an experience by itself with all of the different sights and smells. While there are a few public markets to choose from, we’d recommend heading to Atwater Market. Located right on the Lachine Canal, it is the perfect spot for any of the connoisseurs in your bachelor party group to nerd out. One of the best parts about the market for connoisseurs is that it stocks hard to find game meats such as kangaroo, bison, and ostrich. On the weekend, Atwater is packed with shoppers, but it is worth fighting through the crowds.

Game Meat Montreal

 

Cigars At Casa De Habanos

Casa De Habanos is the place to go for premium, aged cigars. Located right downtown on Sherbrooke Street, Habanos staff is knowledgeable, friendly, and their selection is incredible. You’ll find a wide variety of Cuban cigars, which is always a treat for our American guests. Pair a cigar with some port and you’ll have a great start to the bachelor party weekend.

Montreal Cigars

3rd Wave Coffee Shops

Montreal’s Mile End neighborhood is considered to be one of the trendiest AKA hipster-filled in the world. With a healthy amount of random tattoos, edgy haircuts, and expensive vegan food in this city, you’re bound to find good 3rd wave coffee shops (Whatever that means…) But since you like your artisanal coffee, we’d recommend trying Pikolo or Dispatch. Modeled after an Australian coffee house, Pikolo is centrally located and serves strong coffee that is perfect after a big night out (It pairs nicely with Legs And Eggs.) If you really are a coffee snob, head to the epicenter of all things hipster, Dispatch Coffee. The minimalist shop was designed for the customer to focus on the coffee and not the ambiance. Dispatch is well known among coffee aficionados so don’t be surprised if your coffee roaster buddy sneaks away for an hour or two.

Third Wave Coffee Montreal

Scotch Tasting At Burgundy Lion

If the whole bachelor party is scotch or whisky snobs, head to Burgundy Lion for a private tasting with a resident expert. They’ll walk you through the history behind the booze, where it comes from, and how it is made. They will answer any questions and will happily accommodate any special tasting requests you may have.

We’d be happy to help set you up with a tasting if that is something you’d be interested in. Give us a call (1-877-690-4919) or email us.

Best Bars For Day Drinking In Old Montreal

Old Montreal, also known as the Old Port to locals, is well known to known to your significant other with its French architecture and charming cobblestone streets, but it is surprisingly a great area for a bachelor party to go bar hopping during the day. It has a good mix of different bars from trendy, upscale cocktail lounges to beer and shot dive bars. Here are bars worth checking out for your next day drinking adventure in Old Montreal 

Any  Bar With A Terrasse

First and foremost, if you do any day drinking in Montreal and the sun is out, you need to head to a terrasse (Terrasse= Patio). You’ll notice every local is outside trying to soak up as much sun as possible. Pretty much every bar in Old Montreal is open during the day and has a terrasse. While you can’t go wrong with any terrasse in the Old Port, we’d recommend going to Terrasse Nelligan. It offers incredible views of Montreal’s skyline and the nearby St. Lawrence River. Nelligan is a place to see and be seen since the crowd tends to skew towards their mid to late 20’s. If you want an even more upscale experience that attracts hot, local girls, head to Terrasse Bonsecours. During the week, Bonsecours is a more laid back drinking spot, but turns into an open-air party on the weekends. You really can’t go wrong with either of these terrasses.

Day Drinking Montreal

If drinking on a terrasse is not your thing for some odd reason or the weather is terrible, here’s where to go drinking:

SeaSalt & Ceviche Bar

One of the newer bars in Old Montreal, SeaSalt has quickly made an impression in its first two years of operation. The restaurant is huge so it can easily hold your entire bachelor party. The drink menu is unique and is filled with some interesting options. They are known for their sangria, which pairs nicely with any of their seafood options, but especially the ceviche. SeaSalt brings in a DJ on the weekend so it’s the perfect spot to get drinks before heading to dinner.

Day Drinking Old Montreal

Pub St. Paul

If grabbing pitchers of beer sounds more like your scene, this is your bar. Pub St. Paul may seem out of place in Old Montreal, but is a welcomed respite from the continued opening of trendy cocktail lounges. The bar isn’t going to blow you away with its decoration or drink options, but it’s a great place to hang out with your buddies and grab some drinks. It comes complete with pool tables and flatscreen TVs so it’s a solid option to drink at once the bachelor’s alma mater is playing on Saturdays.

Day Drinking Montreal

Les 3 Brasseurs

Yes, we know Les 3 Brasseurs is a chain microbrewery/ restaurant, but if we hadn’t mentioned that, you’d have no idea. The cool thing about Les 3 Brasseurs is that they brew beer specifically for the neighborhood they are located in. In the Old Port, that means that they have a beer dedicated to Old Montreal’s export-import history. Order a beer flight if you want to try a variety of beer offerings. It’s a good place to get annoyingly drunk and have good bar food before stumbling around the city or going to party.

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.

Dirty Mike Host 

Age

 26

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.

Best Pool / Day Parties In Montreal

We get calls all of the time from guys asking what there is to do during the day in Montreal. Although our title might suggest Montreal has a vibrant pool/day party scene, we have some good and bad news concerning this. The bad news is unlike Vegas there really is no pool/ day parties in Montreal. The good news is you won’t have to stare at drunk roided’ out muscle heads all afternoon while trying to use your 10th grade French to pick up girls. Fortunately, Montreal has some cooler daytime activities ranging from girlfriend/ wife approved to fast pass to divorce.

We never recommend to stack the day with too many activities (One daytime activity at most). It’s one of the biggest bachelor party mistakes you can make. Here are the best Montreal daytime options:

Tamer Daytime Options

Axe Throwing

Canada is the real OG of axe throwing. Created by bored lumberjackers, axe throwing somehow became a popular bachelor party activity. A little competition always makes the bachelor party more fun.

White Water Rafting

What better to wake up from a wild night and a pounding headache than getting your adrenaline pumping by rafting in the Lachine Rapids. Your crew will hate you for making them roll out of bed early, but you’ll feel refreshed after getting soaked. By the time you’re done, it’s time to grab drinks at the next recommended spot.

Drinks At Terrace Bonsecours

After all of that physical exercise, it’s time to work out your liver in the Old Port. Head to Terrace Bonsecours, one of the best day drinking spots in Montreal. You’ll find plenty of hot, friendly French-Canadian girls to hang out with while you pre-game the night and have a great view of Montreal’s skyline.

Montreal Pool Parties

More Memorable Daytime Options

Bloody Mary Bar

Why have a hangover when you can chase the hair of the dog? Start your morning (or end your night) with a Bloody Mary bar and be served by two topless strippers. Add in some party girls to make sure you guys don’t just stand around and stare at each other. It’s sure to be a liquid breakfast the bachelor will never forget.

College Girl Pub Crawl

Be led around by two (or more) local, college hotties with low GPAs and lower aspirations to various bars. Don’t waste your time searching for cool hipster places you don’t care about. We can tailor the pub crawl however you would like. Just let us know how sloppy you are trying to get.

Ultimate Daytime Saturday Itinerary

To make your bachelor party as epic as possible, we’ve put together an Ultimate Daytime Saturday itinerary that combines some of the best Montreal bachelor party activities.

10 AM: Set The Tone

Start the morning right! Wake up to a Bloody Mary Bar with as many topless strippers and waiters as your heart desires and your eyes can handle. Mornings will never be the same again.

Montreal Day Party

12 PM: Keep The Buzz Going

Once the buzz starts wearing off from the Bloody Mary Bar, keep the day partying going by going on a pub crawl with two or more hot college girls. They’re hand picked for their great assets.

3 PM: Montreal Delicacy

If you come to Montreal, you have to try smoked meat. Don’t even bother going on a Saturday because the line can be up to two hours long. Skip the line and get Schwartz’s catered to your place to line your stomach for the night ahead. Throw in a midget or topless waitress to the mix to take it to the next level.

5 PM: The Jaw Dropper

Have two hot, local girls come over and deliver a private show of a lifetime . Even the hardest to impress guy in the group will be completely silent and the bachelor may even reconsider his upcoming marriage. We consider that a successful show.

Pool Party Montreal

6 PM: Havana’s Finest  

Head to Montreal’s best cigar lounge, Stogies, to smoke some hard to find Cuban cigars while sipping on premium Scotch. You’ll immediately feel the chest hair sprouting.

8PM: The Last Supper

Down the street from Stogies is one of Montreal’s best supper clubs, Sousbois. Close out your extended afternoon and start the night with a great menu and more drinks. You can write the rest of the story from here…
