Why Getting Party Girls Is The Best Decision You’ll Make All Weekend

You’re a bachelor party. That means you are a big group of guys (AKA a big ol’ sausage fest). In any city, especially one in a foreign country where you might not even speak the language, it’s important to have local, hot girls partying with you to balance out the ratio. It makes the bachelor party weekend that much more fun and prevents a situation where you and your boys are at the club, staring at each other. Here’s why getting party girls is the best decision you’ll make all weekend:

Status

When you roll up to the club with a bunch of guys and no girls, your group looks lame. Throw some party girls into the mix and all of sudden, your group looks way more approachable to other girls. Our party girls are model hot and some of the best looking in the city. It’ll be no surprise when the whole club starts to gravitate towards your table when you are out with our party girls. The rest of the night is in your hands.

Party Starters

In the bachelor party, there may be some guys you have never met before or who don’t want to party for whatever reason. Party girls are a great way to break the ice and get the party started (Throw in some booze and you have a great night ahead of you.) A great way to kick off your weekend is with a college girl pub crawl. These local, hot, and impressionable girls with low GPAs and lower aspirations will take you and your crew around to different bars and get you very drunk. Some might call it shenanigans, we call it bonding. It’s a simple formula, but it works every time.

Breaks Up The Sausage Fest

Bachelor parties, by their very nature, are one big sausage fest. Party girls add some flavor into the bachelor party and keep the party going. We handpicked these girls because they are hot, but also since they can talk about other things than how many Instagram followers they have. Yeah they may drink all of your booze, but that’s the point. You’re in Montreal to drop money on booze and boobs.

Montreal Bachelor Party Review: Last Minute 17 Guys From Boston

The Setup

Last week we got a call from a group of 17 guys from Boston that were coming in last minute. The average age of the group was 29 years old. Most of the group had attended another bachelor party a few months earlier, while for some they were popping their bachelor party cherry. Little did they know, Montreal bachelor parties are unique. The group, however, was ready to make this bachelor party epic and were down to get as many strippers, midgets, bottles, and party girls as necessary to make the bachelor party memorable (Something we always love to hear.) There was one big problem though. The group didn’t read any of our tips on where to stay in Montreal (AKA Don’t stay anywhere not named Montreal) and booked an Airbnb 30 minutes away in Brossard. ‘UGE MISTAKE.

The Plan  

The guys still wanted to stay at the house in Brossard despite us telling them that would ruin the bachelor party. They soon realized their mistake. When they arrived at the Airbnb, they found out that the place was not theirs as advertised, but the host and his family were staying upstairs. The guys immediately called us and last minute we were able to find them a place to stay. They immediately took an Uber back to civilization and never looked back (If we could only tell you what the house cleaners saw..). Here’s what they booked:

-Our (Gold) standard services: host, no cover, no waiting in lines, no tipping for entry, itinerary, no reservations

-House built specifically for bachelor parties in the perfect location. 4 floors, 5 bedrooms, and 4,500 square feet to get crazy

-4 hot, young, impressionable party girls to prevent the ultimate sausage fest

-Bloody Mary Bar

-Girl On Girl Show

-Midget to add to the fun

-VIP Table both nights, 14 bottles total

-Strip Club VIP one night, 3 bottles total

Montreal Bachelor Party Review

Execution

It was pretty crazy getting everything together the same week, but we made it happen. 17 guys is a pretty big group and what club wants to have a giant group of guys show up? None, but more bottles is always the solution. These guys wanted to get rowdy and they got 7 bottles each night. In terms of an itinerary, we try try not to put a lot of events in the same day and we like to spread things out throughout the weekend. For example, we made sure the Blood Mary Bar was towards the end of the weekend to wake the guys up a bit and we even kept it a secret from the bachelor. The guys originally didn’t have a girl on girl show booked, but they soon let their sleazy senses get to them and realized they needed something to make the bachelor party even more memorable.

Recap

Overall, the bachelor party went off without a problem and the guys had a blast. While we can’t get into details, the guys thanked us for saving them from almost making a massive mistake and told us they are already trying to make any excuse to their girlfriends and wives to come back.

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.

How To Budget For A Bachelor Party

There’s nothing that can end friendships faster than an argument about money. Throw a bachelor party, a few other guys into the mix, and you have a real life Titanic on your hands. When you’re the guy in charge of planning and hounding the group for money, chances are you don’t know everyone in the group. It’s important to follow these three rules when budgeting for a bachelor party so you don’t end up being hated by the group:

How To Budget Bachelor Party

Be A Dictator

We’re not making a political statement here, but dictators know how to make things happen. When you’re the one planning the bachelor party, you’re in control. It’s important to make sure the group’s interests are taken care of while looking out for your own. The beauty of this is you can sell the group on things you want while saying it’s for the good of the group. For example, you want a girl on girl show and you can take the angle that it will make the bachelor party more memorable. See how to do this? Get what you want, be a dictator.

How To Budget Bachelor Party

Too Many Cooks In The Kitchen

Everyone has their own idea about what they want to see and do. Not enough bottles, too many shows, Matt’s girlfriend won’t let him come if you go to a strip club…Everyone has an opinion. If everyone in the group has input on every decision, nothing will get planned.

You’re the groomsman for a reason. The best way to get around this hassle is to not listen to the haters and don’t ask what people want. Instead, give them a predicted budget and itinerary for them to understand what the weekend is going to look like. You’ll be happy you did, that’s all that matters.

How To Budget Bachelor Party

Initial Deposit

No one wants to be that guy hounding other guys, some you might not even know, for money during the bachelor party. It’s best to get an initial deposit from everyone before the weekend starts so you won’t be on the hook for most of the bill. Remember, Venmo is your friend…Repeat… Venmo is your best friend.

Strategies For A Large Bachelor Party

If you are coming to Montreal and you are 10 or more guys, you are considered a large bachelor party. Everyone has different ideas about what they want to see and do. It is easy to see how the weekend can get messy for all the wrong reasons. Here are four proven strategies for a large bachelor party:

Decide On A Budget

In every large bachelor party group, there are always some guys who want to blow the budget out and some who are too cheap to even get a $15 lap dance at Chez Paree (In Canadian dollars might we add…Consider leaving these guys at home.). You want to find that sweet spot that makes the entire group happy.

Leave variable things such as meals and lap dances to guy’s own discretion. However, we recommend pre-paying your big ticket items such as bottles and strippers so they are already accounted for in the budget. If you don’t, you’ll be the guy on the hook for the bill and become a buzzkill trying to hunt everyone down for money. To make matters worse, you might not know everyone in the bachelor party group. There’s nothing more awkward than sending a Venmo request to some random guy before the weekend has even started…and they still haven’t paid you once the bachelor party weekend is over. Follow our advice, pre-pay, and it’ll be smooth sailing.

If you can’t agree on a budget, you could always invite that creepy rich friend pictured below that no one has talked to in years and have him cover your costs.

Strategies For A Large Bachelor Party

One Daytime Activity, If Any

Going anywhere is going to be a pain with 10 guys especially if you’re still feeling the night before (Legs and Eggs can change all of that though.) If you insist on doing a daytime activity such as axe throwing or jet boating, choose one. Otherwise, leave the day unplanned, walk around the city, and get ready for the next night with topless beer pong, for example. Boobies over boats.

Large Bachelor Party Strategies

 

Pace Your Drinking

We know your excited. You haven’t seen your buddies in a while and you’re ready to start pounding shots of Jameson at 11 AM. Easy there…Great when you were in college, but not so great years later on a bachelor party. Slow and steady is the best way to approach your drinking for the weekend. No one wants to be that guy your whole group has to throw in a cab because you passed out in a stripper’s lap. It’s a marathon, not a sprint, unless you sprint your marathons.

Stack The Deck In Your Favor

Trying to get into a club with 15 guys with no girls, who don’t speak French, and may not have the right clothes, is a hail mary. Don’t even try it…or you’ll end up calling us Saturday morning for help. It’s simple. To get into a club, you’ll have to bring girls. Luckily, we have young, hot, and impressionable party girls for your group to party with. You’re welcome.

Strategies For Large Bachelor Party

Whatever you do, definitely don’t make these bachelor party mistakes.

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.

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…

Gay Village Boundaries:

-South: Rene Levesque Boulevard              East: Papineau 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)

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.

Top Tips for large Bachelor Parties in Montreal

Don’t let your Bachelor Party turn into a sausage fest because of poor planning.


If your bachelor party is over 10 people, then it is considered a large group by Montreal bachelor party standards. There is a lot to consider when you’re dealing with a large group if you want things to run smoothly. To help with the process, check out our tried-and-true tips below.

Plan ahead

20130711-144918.jpg
Don’t be this guy.

If you are reading this from your hotel room in Montreal you are probably already screwed. If not, you need to plan ahead. The easiest way to do this is to call us (shameless plug) 1-877-690-4019 and we will take care of everything else. Otherwise, you really need to have a game plan and some reservations in place. unless you like spending a lot of time outdoors you cannot just ‘wing it’ as no place wants a large group of dudes from out of town.


Be a dictator

When dealing with a large group you have to realize that democracy spells disaster. If you want things to go smoothly you have to grow a pair and make the decisions. Tell the group what is what. If you open up the decision making process to everyone you will run in circles, and nothing will get done. We do recommend having one or two key advisors, but at the end of the day you have to call the shots. Let the group know when, where and how much money you need to collect and you will win their hearts and minds. Set deadlines, if people don’t follow them just plan on not having them there. You are the BEST man, act like it!


Collect money up front

20130711-145140.jpg
One of the biggest hurdles of planning any bachelor party is the budget. The larger the group the larger the budgets vary. The key here is to keep the sticker price of the bachelor party as low as possible to get as many people on board, while making it as all-inclusive as possible. Make sure you have all the key costs (hotel, bottles, dinners, transportation) factored into the price. Leave nothing to chance, and never think that you will just collect at the venue from everyone. Trust me, you will get burned 100% of the time if you think everyone will chip an equal share when the bill comes.


Don’t plan too many activities

You are on a bachelor party NOT a bachelorette party. You do not need to make sure there is something to do every 15 min. Overall less is more when dealing with a large group. We suggest zero to one daytime/set activity during the day. Focus more on the nightlife. For the nightlife have one club and strip club set at a minimum for each night.
