Why Curling Is A Great Daytime Activity For Bachelor Parties

What’s the first thing you think of when someone mentions curling? Crickets…Sure, the sport is a bunch of grown men sweeping ice with broomsticks, but you probably don’t think of a bachelor party. Once the summer activities start to die down and pumpkin spice season starts, curling becomes a popular activity here in Montreal. Here’s 3 reasons you should consider curling for your bachelor party:

Unique Activity

It seems like every bachelor party tries to one up the next one. Sure, we can easily throw more girls, more strip clubs, and more midgets into the mix, but how many bachelor parties go curling? Now’s your time to finally learn this mysterious game you’ve only seen on TV at the Olympics. Besides, you can finally take pictures (semi) sober with your boys and send it back to the girlfriend or wife…unless you bring along party girls of course 😉

Fun For Everyone

There are always pros and cons with daytime activities. Some guys may not like getting splashed with freezing cold water if they go jet boating or others may be scared of heights if you go zip lining, but curling is fun for the whole group. I’ve never seen an unhappy sweeper and even though the staff will explain the game to you, half the fun is not knowing what the hell you’re doing. If you’re looking to satisfy everyone in your bachelor party group, curling is a great fall and winter daytime option.

Bar   

Any sport that you can do while drinking is already amazing. Just like bowling, curling is made even better with an ice cold beer in hand. Luckily for you, there is a bar inside the curling arena. It helps loosen up the muscles and makes sweeping all the more fun. By the time the afternoon is over, you and your buddies will be well on your way to making the national curling team.

Best Montreal Supper Clubs In 2018

Supper clubs are found in other cities, but nowhere does supper clubs like Montreal. For those of you that have never heard of a Montreal supper club, they are eateries during the evening that turn into full blown nightclubs after dinner is served. They are consistently some of the best places in Montreal to party. How could they not be? With a great mix of delicious food, model hot girls, bottles, and the fact that you don’t even have to leave to go party, it’s no wonder reservations are nearly impossible to get. Luckily, with our connections, you won’t have that problem. Here’s the best Montreal supper clubs to check out in 2018:

Bord’elle

Leading the resurgence of the Old Port, Bord’elle is a great option for a more sophisticated group. Modeled after a 1920’s speakeasy, the food is incredible. We recommend you try their Filet Mignon in a VSOP cognac glaze, but there is nothing we don’t like on the menu. Once the clock strikes midnight, Bord’elle comes alive and the champagne starts flowing. If you head to this club, be prepared for a rowdy time. It is one of the best places to party on Thursday nights and is a go to spot jump off point for our groups that think they can handle 3 massive nights of partying…To them, we say good luck. Bord’elle will give you all you can handle and than some!

Bord'elle Montreal 2018

Soubois

Soubois, French for “Underground Forest”, is the perfect spot for those that care more about the scenery than the food. For starters, the space is unique and looks like you are surrounded by trees. It’s a nice touch, but you didn’t come for the interior design. The food is good, but their very hot waitresses steal the show. Consider it a practice round for you and your buddies to get warmed up talking to locals. Soubois is a solid spot on Friday, but is reliably great on Saturday.

Sousbois Montreal 2018

Flyjin

Located down the street from Bord’elle in the Old Port, Flyjin is a smaller, more intimate supper club. Their menu was created by renowned, international chef Antonio Park. The miso black cod is to die for. Unfortunately, this club only works best with groups of 10 or less since anything above that, your group would be 10-20% capacity of the club. What club wants a good portion of their clientele that night to be guys? None. (Of course, we could always tip the scale in your favor if you bring along some party girls..)

Flyjin Montreal 2018

Joverse

This laid back, casual supper club is ideal for larger groups or for guys that don’t want something too fancy. It’s not as pretentious as some of the other supper clubs that were previously mentioned. It’s a great place to party with less crowds and is more relaxed. The crowd tends to skew a bit younger, which means hot, impressionable girls so we generally recommend Joverse for groups that are more budget conscious, but still want to ball out during their time in Montreal.

5 Best Clubs To Pick Up Models

Montreal is known for its hot girls, but we know you. You want the best of the best. You’re coming to Montreal for the weekend so you might as well go for gold and hit on the hottest models in the city! We all know you can only hide your lack of personality with your wallet for so long, but luckily, these girls don’t care. They will gladly listen to your terrible pick up lines…if you have enough Dom P and Veuve around. Here’s 5 clubs to test your luck and try to pick up hot models:

Sousbois

This downtown supper club is known for looking like an underground forest and for its gorgeous wait staff. Just going to dinner with your buddies turns into an head turning event. It’s a good way to kick off the night and flirt with a girl that is being paid to laugh at your awful jokes. The real fun starts when the dinner service ends, the lights dim, and the place turns into a club. Due to how exclusive Sousbois is, the quality of girls is high and models know that big ballers come here. In our experience, the more bottles, the hotter the models.

Montreal Models

La Voute

One of the newer clubs on Montreal’s nightlife scene, opened in 2017, La Voute (French for “The Vault”) is currently one of the trendiest clubs in the city. It has massive lines every weekend, but with our connections we can get you right in and bring you straight to your table. Party girls would be an excellent addition (as they always are!) at La Voute as every model in Montreal wants a taste of this club.

Montreal Models

Bord’elle

An eatery by day and club by night, Bord’elle is teeming with hot girls once the clock strikes midnight. From model hot bartenders to acrobats swinging around the club, Bord’elle attracts plenty of talent. Be sure to at least put a nice shirt on because this club attracts the more upscale, well-dressed models. Sure, they may seem intimidatingly hot at first, but really they are fishing for compliments…

Montreal Models

New City Gas

This 4,000 square foot club is located in the up and coming Griffintown neighborhood that’s well known to Instagram models that love to party. The models that come here love their fruity drinks, selfies, and anything shiny. Get bottles and you’ll soon have every girl that you awkwardly followed on social media swarming your table. Who knows maybe she’ll think your not a degenerate and she’ll feature you in her #IGStory…

Montreal Models

Rouge

Rouge has been in the game for over a decade so you. It brings in a younger French Canadian crowd. If you’re looking for trashier, model hot girls, then Rouge is a safe bet. While not as sophisticated as some of the other places on our list, Rouge makes up for it by being a great time and the friendliness of the girls. Getting a few bottles at Rouge will take you far and the whole club, including hot girls, will be at your table.

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.

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.

Why August Is The Best Month For A Bachelor Party In Montreal

While there is no bad time to have a bachelor party during the summer in Montreal, in our opinion though, August is the best month to come to Montreal. It’s the tail end of summer so the city is not as packed like June and July. There are tons of cool festivals happening every weekend during the month and last, but not least, local universities are back in session. I wonder what that means…

Osheaga

The first weekend of August (August 3-5) is Osheaga, the biggest music festival in Canada. It takes place only a 10 minute Uber ride away at Jean-Drapeau Park. It always brings in big artists and this year is no exception. It also attracts big crowds from all over North America and the world. Many festival goers go out after so clubs are packed this weekend, but we’ll make sure you’re partying with all the big names since we know what clubs they go to and can get you in. Just like Grand Prix Weekend, it brings in incredibly hot girls from all over.

Osheaga Bachelor Party

Île Soniq

Taking place the weekend after Osheaga (August 9-11), Île Soniq is not as popular, but just as fun. It’s crowd is a little different than Osheaga since the festival is more geared towards EDM fans, but usually some of the DJs that played the festival, DJ the clubs at night. We’ll walk you right into these hard to get into spots this weekend and make sure you see a big name DJ if that is your thing.

Montreal Ile Soniq

Tam-Tams

If hanging out and being surrounded by people on copious amount of drugs sounds like somewhere you want to be, then this is your scene. Taking place every Sunday, Tam-Tams is a good place to soak in the sun and sweat out your hangover after brunch.

Montreal Bachelor Party August

PoutineFest

When visiting Montreal, you have to try poutine. PoutineFest has you covered. Taking place in the Old Port from July 31st to August 5th, PoutineFest brings out the best poutine from around the city and country. From foie gras to macaroni to duck poutine, the fest has it all. Grab a few drinks, some poutine, and you got yourself a great afternoon.

Poutine Fest Montreal

College Girls

Finally, hot college girls come back to Montreal with the start of the school year around the corner. Most have nothing to do so you’ll find plenty of them when you go out. Friendly French-Canadian girls are one of Montreal’s best assets.

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.
