The Pros And Cons Of Throwing The Bachelor On Stage

If you come to Montreal on a bachelor party, stopping at a strip club is a necessary adventure. It’s fun for the whole group and you might even call it a bonding experience. There’s nothing quite like getting a lap dance from the same stripper and comparing notes with your buddy…Regardless, putting the bachelor on stage at the strip club and having various strippers humiliate him is always an option. It’s a great choice for some bachelor parties, while for others it could ruin the night. Here’s the pros and cons of throwing the bachelor on stage for a strip club show:

Strip Club Show

Pros:

It’s A Good Time

We all know that a bachelor party is never about the bachelor himself, but rather about the other guys on the trip. Seeing the bachelor get degraded and spanked on stage is hilarious to see for the rest of the guys. It’s always great for groups that like a bit more attention from the strippers or don’t take themselves too seriously.

Some Bachelors Enjoy The Attention

While we do offer a dominatrix show, this is the next best thing for those bachelors that are secretly masochists and like to be roughed up a bit. Who knows maybe they’ll discover something new about themselves…You can thank us later. There are bachelors that like to be the star of the show and this is the best way to get all of the attention in the strip club.

Memorable Send Off

Putting the bachelor on stage is certainly a memorable experience to say bye to his single years. He won’t forget his time on stage and it will give you some fond memories to reminisce about until his divorce party in 5 years.

Strip Club Show

Cons:

Unwanted Surprise

Anytime you throw the bachelor on stage, it’s a surprise (or just get him drunk enough..) Either way, it’s a bold move that could backfire tremendously. The bachelor may feel uncomfortable, but in our opinion, that’s the point of the bachelor party. He may not talk to you for the rest of the weekend, but that’s what true friends are for.

Wife’s Pissed

Whatever you do, make sure there is no evidence of the show if his fiancé is crazy. We’ve had a few women call us up about their man’s bachelor party and we tell them they have nothing to worry about…If there is evidence, you guys better have your stories straight. The pictures last a little longer than that handprint on the bachelor’s ass.

Tacky

Sure, we get it…Throwing the bachelor on stage is tacky, but that’s why we love it. It’s one of those traditional bachelor party activities that just completes the weekend. Besides, you’re not from Montreal, so tell the strippers you’re a porn star and make a fool of yourself. If you guys are all tightwads, take 30 minutes just to put gel in your hair, and enjoy staring at each other than putting the bachelor on stage is not for you. Otherwise, get ready for a good laugh.

Why Getting Brisket And Breasts Might Be The Best Decision You Make All Weekend

Here at Connected Montreal, our goal is to make your bachelor party as epic as possible during your time in Montreal. That being said, we know there are only so many hours in the weekend and most groups want to pack in as much as they can. That’s why we came up with Brisket And Breasts. Unlike those 5 shots of tequila at 2 P.M., here’s why getting Brisket And Breasts is one of the best decisions you’ll make all weekend:

Smoked Meat

There are three foods you have to try when visiting Montreal. Stops for poutine, bagels, and smoked meat are necessary at some point during the weekend. While there are a few smoked meat places, Schwartz’s is by far the best. The only problem is the line on any given weekend wraps around the block throughout the day. We’ve helped you solve this problem and save you the hassle of waiting in line by being able to get Schwartz’s catered directly to your house or hotel.

Brisket And Breasts

Topless Girls

There are certain things that are necessary to do on a bachelor party (steak dinner) and certain things that should be avoided (NOT prepaying your lap dances). One thing that is absolutely necessary for any bachelor party is strippers. It brings some excitement to the weekend and ensures that, at least for an hour or two, your bachelor party is not a total sausage fest.

Topless Girls

Kill Two Birds With One Stone  

In the name of efficiency (and because it is genius!), we have combined both Schwartz’s and topless girls to create Brisket And Breasts. You’ll get to try delicious smoked meat without leaving your house or hotel all while you get served the food by topless girls. In our opinion, the enjoyable scenery adds some flavor to the smoked meat.

Brisket And Breasts

Pro Tip: To take the bachelor party to the next level, add in some topless beer pong to pregame before hitting the clubs.

Connected Montreal Summer 2018 Recap

Labor Day has come and gone, which means yet another crazy Connected Montreal summer is in the books. 2018 was by far our busiest summer yet. We were sold out every weekend and we swear we almost burnt the town down a few times (Very close call on Grand Prix weekend, but we’ll get to that…) Here are some highlights from this past summer:

Grand Prix Weekend

Grand Prix Weekend is the official unofficial start of summer. Taking place on the first weekend of June, everyone is ready to party hard and girls are extra “friendly”. It’s a weekend that is made for big ballers and those that are ready to flash some cash. We had some new faces and old pals come party with us this year. $18,000 worth of Moet, Veuve, and Dom P each night, hot girls, a sparkler incident that almost went wrong and partying with some of the drivers including Lewis Hamilton on Sunday night were definitely the highlights. The weekend is still a blur to us…We came. We saw. We drank champagne.

Champagne Montreal Grand Prix 2018

 

Most Booze Consumed

While these guys from Chicago gave this group a good run for their money, nothing tops the $5,000 worth of vodka, whiskey, and tequila that a group from San Francisco ordered. We had it pre-stocked at their house waiting for them upon arrival. We didn’t even mention the $2,000 worth of bottles they got at the club…it’s unclear whether these guys were sober at any point during the weekend. At least that’s one way to avoid a hangover…or guarantee to have one for the rest of 2018.

Pre-Stocked Fridge Grand Prix Weekend 2018

 

Most Amount Of Topless Girls

We always like to see groups that try to push the limit and see at what point they get tired of seeing nudity. We’re pretty sure these guys hit that point. They started one night innocently enough with some good ol’ fashioned topless beer pong. For dinner, they did a naked sushi with 4 topless waitresses and for dessert, they got a lesbian show…with 10 girls. Yes, you read that correctly, 10 girls. Bravo, you weirdos.

We invite you to try and take this title next year. Here are some ideas to get you started…

Strippers Summer 2018

Strangest Request

When you are in the bachelor party industry, you are bound to get some strange requests. It’s part of the business. This year, we had a group call up and tell us they were big Star Wars fans. They wanted to know if they could get some strippers to do a show in Princess Leia costumes. Since we’re known for making anything happen, we found some outfits and made it work. For good measure, we sent along a midget in a Yoda get up.

Host Feature: Hurricane Tony

They say that the dark is afraid of him. His business card simply says, “I’ll Call You.” Legend has it that he can make bottles and strippers magically appear out of thin air. It’s hard to plan your bachelor party with Connected Montreal and not at least hear of this party legend. Guys want to be him and women want to be with him. The self proclaimed best VIP host in Montreal has been in the game for over 5 years and he can certainly hang with the best of them. For better or worst, he’s spent years of his life  in strip clubs, bars, and other nightlife institutions…Or shall we say they were lucky enough that he graced them with his presence. Without further ado, we are pleased to introduce you to the one and only, Hurricane Tony:

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.

The Best Montreal Hangover Meals

When you come to Montreal on a bachelor party, your going to follow a pretty straight forward formula: dinner, strip club, go out, after party, repeat. Then comes the next morning and it feels like Pierre the midget is trying to force his way out of your head. Luckily, Montreal knows you came here to party and is ready with a variety of hangover food options. Here’s 6 of our favorite Montreal hangover meals:

Poutine

Anyone that’s ever been to Montreal will tell you that you have to try poutine. We’re not sure what they sprinkle on it, but if you’ve ever had a hangover poutine, you know that feeling when you instantly come back to life. There are hundreds of poutine places all over Montreal, but head to La Banquise, a Montreal institution. Walk across the street to Parc LaFontaine to soak in some sun and if you’re feeling bold, have a beer or two with your meal to really clear that foggy head.

Montreal Hangover

Bagels

Montreal vs. New York bagels… We know every New Yorker that is going to read this will defend their own version, but we don’t care since you’re on our turf. Head to St. Viateur for their bagel sandwiches or be a true Montrealer and get bagels with a tub of cream cheese. This is our personal favorite option since the combination of doughy bread with sweet and salty flavors will have you ready for the next big night out in no time.

Bachelor Party Hangover Montreal

Down And Dirty Brunch

Montreal’s brunch scene might not be as developed as the East Coast, but don’t sleep on several great options. L’Avenue is by far one of our favorites. Although the wait can be an hour or more on the weekend depending on when you arrive, the portions are more than generous (Especially the pancakes) and you’ll have a full grown food baby by the time you leave. Of course, any brunch can be turned into a boozy one, so if that’s what you want, L’Avenue is your best option.

Bachelor Party Hangover Meal

Carb Overload

Carbs are a necessity when it comes to proper hangover recovery and Montreal is not short on carb loading options. Boustan’s is better known for its late night shenanigans, but it is also a great daytime eating spot. The Lebanese fast food restaurant serves up delicious shawarma, kebabs and falafel. If you’re more in the mood for a burger, head down the street to Crescent’s Burger Bar. After a quick scan of the menu, you’ll realize that they have already made the choice for you by offering a Hangover Burger. The burger consists of beef patties, cheese, bacon, poutine, truffle oil, caramelized onions, and for good measure, a fried egg. You can thank us later…

Hangover Burger

Dim Sum

This small portion Chinese brunch has exploded in popularity the last few years and there’s nothing better than greasy dumplings to soak up that remaining booze in your system. You really can’t go wrong with any dim sum restaurant in Chinatown on St. Laurent. Most have plenty of room to accommodate any size group so if your bachelor party consists of foodies, this is the hangover brunch for you.

Brisket And Breasts

When you have a pounding hangover, the last thing you’ll want to do is stand in line and wait for smoked meat. Make your life easier and throw some fun into the mix by having Schwartz’s catered to your house with some topless waitresses serving you. Unlike those 3 shots of tequila after drinking bourbon all night, this is a decision you won’t regret.

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.

Montreal Nightclubs Vs. Las Vegas Nightclubs

Montreal and Las Vegas are some of the best cities in North America to have a bachelor party. Each city appeals to a different type of bachelor party. You don’t have to be a party animal to know that Montreal nightclubs are different than Las Vegas nightclubs. Beyond the obvious differences between the two cities such as size and weather, Montreal and Las Vegas each have their respective nightlife strengths and weaknesses. Here’s a look at the differences between Montreal and Las Vegas nightclubs:

Quality

Vegas is known for its nightlife because frankly there is nothing else to do in the middle of desert. It is home to arguably some of the best nightclubs in the world. From 1Oak to Marquee to Hakkasan, it’s easy to find whatever type of club you are looking for in Vegas. However, with this reputation, comes pretentious douchebags and long lines. Montreal’s nightlife, on the other hand, is underrated and often people are surprised at how good Montreal’s nightclubs are. La Voute and Bord’elle are two of the best and within walking distance of each other. Club goers are laid back and French Canadian girls  are very “friendly”.

Montreal Nightclubs

VIP

Montreal has everything that is great about VIP without the show that Vegas has. In Vegas, you have people crowding around your table, slower table service, and you have to pay more money for a better location. Everything about VIP in Vegas is about who can spend more money. Montreal is more relaxed. It’s a city where clubbing is all about getting a table and bottles. If you’re not getting bottle service, you’re doing it wrong. You’ll still enjoy the benefits of VIP like status and location in Montreal with bottles, but there’s no specific reserved VIP section like Vegas.

Montreal Las Vegas VIP

Price

When it comes to costs, Montreal blows Vegas out of the water. It’d be difficult for a bachelor party to spend under a $1,000…just to get their foot in the door in Vegas. You’ll find it hard to get in anywhere with a big group of guys. Montreal is a different story. You can have an epic weekend with a $1,000 budget. Considering a bottle is only $250, going out in Montreal is reasonable. Oh, and we’ll make sure you get in to the best clubs in the city…with a group of hot, young, and impressionable party girls. Sounds a lot better than the sausage fest you’d roll up to the club with in Vegas.
