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.

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.

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

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.

The Ultimate Montreal Bachelor Party Dinner

Having at least one group dinner is a must for any bachelor party. Montreal has one of the best restaurant scenes in North America. Whether you are looking for something more budget friendly or looking to ball out, there is something for everyone. Here’s what we recommend for your bachelor party dinner:

Budget Friendly Option

When a cheap, lazy bachelor party is searching for a restaurant, there’s two important factors. It has to have a per person price and it must accommodate large groups. Milsa on Crescent street fits the bill. Milsa is a poor man’s Fogo De Chao. Everything is just a notch below. The meal comes with unlimited meat and salad with a desert, and at $40 per person, everyone will be satisfied. If your group is more concerned about saving lap dance money for the strip clubs, Milsa is a solid option.

Take It Up A Notch

If you are a notch above cheap, but not Veuve and Dom P status, a supper club such as Soubois is what you need. Supper clubs serve dinner earlier on in the night and turn into full blown nightclubs after 11PM. The menus tend to be more upscale and paired with bottle service, supper clubs offer great value. Supper clubs are extremely popular in Montreal so they are often booked up weeks in advance. Luckily, we have the connections to get you in, even if you want to book a supper club a few days before.

Sousbois Bachelor Party Dinner

Ultimate Bachelor Party Dinner

Setup

A group of 8 guys from New York called us and gave us free rein to plan the craziest bachelor party dinner we could think of. They wanted to go over the top with the dinner and the group wanted to make it as memorable as possible. We were up for the challenge.

Plan

Here is what we did for the guys:

Naked Sushi

-2 Topless Waitresses

-Girl On Girl Show

-Midget

Naked Sushi Montreal

Execution

We arranged our popular naked sushi for the guys in a private room at one of the best steakhouses in Montreal. We threw in several twists that they didn’t see coming.

The model for naked sushi was one of the hottest in Montreal (And happened to be the bachelor’s fantasy girl…Other than his future wife of course). We’ve never seen guys eat dinner so fast. For the halftime performance, we had two strippers come in and put on a show of a lifetime. The guys told us they actually got tired of seeing naked girls after the night.

To put the icing on the cake, we brought in a midget to serve desert. You should have seen the bachelor’s face when the little guy walked in.

No matter how crazy you’re trying to make your bachelor party weekend, call 1-877-690-4919 or email us to get started.

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…

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.

4 Reasons To Stay At A Connected Montreal House

Whether you realize or not, where you stay makes a big difference in making your bachelor party epic. You’ll be spending more time at your house than you initially realize. It’s where you and your crew will meet, recover, and pregame nights out. You’ll want to make sure where you stay is well located and has all of the amenities you need to make your bachelor party weekend memorable. Luckily for you, we have houses that were specifically designed to host bachelor parties. Here are 4 reasons to stay with Connected Montreal:

Location

There’s a joke in Montreal that says you’re always 10 minutes from downtown. Everyone knows that’s not true, especially in summer, due to construction, road closures, and tourists.  We know all of the best spots in Montreal when it comes to clubs and restaurants. All of our houses are either within walking distance or a short Uber ride away from all of the action. You’re in Montreal only for a weekend so you want to maximize your fun and might as well save time and money in the process. Whatever you do, don’t ruin your bachelor party before it even starts by staying off the island

Reasons To Stay Connected Montreal House

Amenities

We know exactly what works and doesn’t work in bachelor party rental houses so we made sure our houses have it all. From pool tables to patio space to 65 inch flat screen TVs, we have everything your bachelor party needs to relax or get crazy. There’s no better way to recap the night before than playing a game of pool with a cold one. Little hard to do at the Holiday Inn Express.

4 Reasons To Stay Connected Montreal

Space

No matter the size of your bachelor party, it’s important to have space. Our houses were built with this mind. They each sleep at least 15 guys and have large, open living rooms for everyone to hangout in. There’s no way you can do this in a hotel where you might have to bunk up with another guy. Also, I’ve never met any girl that’s excited at the possibility of going to some no name motel in the South Shore. Mention the address of one of our houses and most girls already know them because they’ve been. Choose wisely.

4 Reasons To Stay Connected MontrealPrivacy

When you have a bachelor party, it’s important to make it unforgettable. One of our in house shows does the trick. Whether it’s topless beer pong, briskets and breasts, or a lesbian show, we still have yet to have one disappointed customer. All of this can take place in the privacy and comfort of one of our houses. No better way to start a night than boobies and booze.

Response To Travel+Leisure’s Montreal Bachelor Party Guide

In our 12 years of being THE bachelor party planning experts in Montreal, this actually has to be THE worst Montreal bachelor party guide we’ve seen. Slow clap for Travel+Leisure.

According to Travel+Leisure’s Montreal bachelor party guide, a bachelor party cares about “cobblestone streets” or “Gothic-Revival Basilica”. I’m willing to bet money that no bachelor party has ever stopped to notice the church’s architecture after stumbling out of Bord’elle at 3AM.

Of course, you want to see some of the cultural highlights of the city, but for most of you that’s only cover up for what you ACTUALLY did over the weekend. In fact, we now sell group pictures of you and your crew with a Photoshopped backdrop of Mont Royal or the Biodome. As we say, we take care of EVERYTHING and ANYTHING that involves the bachelor party.

Here’s why Travel+Lesiure’s Montreal Bachelor Party guide is setting you up for disaster:

Hotel St. James

This a bachelor party weekend, not a “relaxing” getaway with your future ex-wife. Stay in a hotel or better yet one of our houses that are perfectly suited for your bachelor party. The St. James is one of the fanciest hotels in the city. There’s usually more Maybachs parked outside than Jay-Z’s mansion. The place is also quite dated inside. More of a place your parents or grandparents would enjoy. We guarantee that no one in your bachelor party cares about the “Old World elegance” or “19th century details” of the rooms. Why waste your money on architecture when you can get a much better local perspective from our hot party girls?

Montreal Bachelor Party Guide

La Distillerie

We’ll give it to La Distillerie. Their drinks are pretty good, but the narrow layout of the bar and high chairs make it a terrible place to grab drinks for a bachelor party. It’s better to be able to spread out and not worry about knocking anyone out when you push back from your chair to inevitably break the seal. Also, in a city with world class restaurants munching on popcorn and beef jerky is like drinking Natty Ice (or PBR for the hipster writer) at the Catalina Wine Mixer.

Montreal Bachelor Party Guide 

 

Stereo Nightclub

Unless you are rolling your face off or enjoy being sober (Said no bachelor party ever)… There is absolutely no reason to go to Stereo, bachelor party or not. The fact that there are no strip clubs or even decent clubs on their list is a disgrace, but then again they probably don’t want to rock the boat and lose advertisers (We lost all of ours a decade ago)

Montreal bachelor party guide

 

Don’t listen to some hipster from New York that Googled places to stay, eat, and drink at in Montreal. Hey hipster have you ever been to Montreal? We invite you and your crew to a REAL bachelor party weekend so you can leave Williamsburg behind for a bit while sipping on a vegan teenager’s breast milk latte and update your guide.

The Best Summertime Montreal Events For Your Bachelor Party

Montreal has events going on every weekend during the summer to make up for its freezing winter (If it weren’t for summer, we would have been in South Beach long ago). Most events are located downtown or an Uber ride away so they are accessible no matter the size of your bachelor party. Here are the four best summertime Montreal events for your bachelor party:

Grand Prix (June 8-10)

Montreal’s Super Bowl takes places every second weekend in June. If you actually care about F1, most people don’t, the big race takes place on Sunday afternoon. Trials take place on Friday and Saturday.

Now, for the information people actually care about: the partying. The city comes alive starting Thursday with outdoor festivals and bars, but so do the prices. If you partake in the festivities, be ready to pay Vegas prices at any night club in the city. You’ll be rewarded though with one of the most fun weekends of the year. Everyone is here to p arty and have a great time so the atmosphere only adds to a bachelor party weekend.

Montreal Summer Bachelor Party

Jazz Fest (June 28-July 7)

Montreal’s Jazz Fest is the largest jazz fest in the world and for good reason. The festival runs for a week and a half with concerts from noon to midnight. It’s ideal for a bachelor party since most of the free concerts take place in Place Des Arts, which is at the heart of downtown and where you should be staying anyway (If you’re staying off the island, stop reading immediately).

Jazz fest Montreal Bachelor Party

Just For Laughs (July 11-July 29)

Just For Laughs has become a mainstay on Montreal’s summertime event calendar. The two and a half week festival brings in big names such as Kevin Hart, Jerry Seinfeld, and Trevor Noah. There’s also great shows, especially the Nasty Show, that is ideal for bachelor parties. There’s no better way to get the night started then going to a Just For Laughs show. If you are in town during JFL, you have to go to at least one show.

Just For Laughs Montreal Bachelor Party

Osheaga (August 3-5)

Canada’s answer to Coachella happens every first weekend in August and is a 15 minute Uber ride away from the downtown core. They have all sorts of different music from electronic to rap to rock from big headliners to no name bands. Osheaga is a great daytime activity for a bachelor party and it’s easy to snag day passes. Just leave the flower headband to your future ex-wife.
