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

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

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.
