7 French Pick Up Lines (That Every Tourist Needs)

Posted on October 17th, 2009 by .

Gay or straight or anywhere in between, I’ve got 7 French Pick Up Lines that will help you have a truly “authentic” Montreal experience…

Voulez-vous coucher avec moi?
Voo-lay voo coosh-ay a-vek mwa

Translation: “Do you want to sleep with me?”

The most famous French pick up line. The locals might roll their eyes, but they’ll find you endearing… the next morning.

Est-ce que tu viens souvent ici?
Ess-sa-kuh-too vee-en soo-von-tee-see?

Translation: “Do you come here often?”

Works well in any language. Perfect opening line whether delivered genuinely or slurred with gin.

Je peux t’embrasser?
Juh puh tom-brass-ay?

Translation: “Can I kiss you?”

When the night is ending, sometimes you don’t have time to beat around the bush.

Tu veux me rejoindre au Stock Bar?
Too vuh mah re-jwen-drah oh Stock Bar

Translation: “Would you like to join me at Stock Bar?”

Often we feel a need to bring a hottie to see strippers.

T’es top ou ben bottom, toé?
Tay TOP oo bayn BOTTOM, twa-ay?

Translation: “Are ya a top or bottom?”

Spoken in true joual (Quebec slang), this line will probably shock the pants off a local hot stud.

Qu’est-ce que tu manges pour être beau de même?
Kess-suh-kuh too mahnge por eh-tra boh de mem?

Translation: “What are you eating to be so beautiful?”

If you’re good, the response will be “you.”

Je viens d’arriver à Montreal. Est-ce que tu pourrais m’indiquer le chemin jusqu’à ton appartement?
Juh vee-en dah-ree-vay ah Montreal. Ess-suh kuh too poor-ray min-dee-kay luh shuh-men jus-kah ton ap-art-ah-men?

Translation: “I’ve just arrived to Montreal. Could you show me the way to your apartment?”

This is a mouthful, but really, when has that stopped you before? Zing!
