Montreal Bachelor Party

Montreal Bachelor Party: When a good friend of mine needed a bachelor party organized, there was only one city in Canada that was up to the task: Montreal. Not just because of its incredible Nightlife scene, which has something on the go every night of the week, but because, in general, this is a city that knows how to cram a range of things into a 24-hour adventure… Sure, Las Vegas is often the bachelor party planner’s first choice, but time after time, Montreal clocks in as North America’s #2. Why? Well first off, you can do everything in Montreal that you can in Las Vegas- from gambling to big name shows- for a fraction of the price. It’s VIP high-rolling that your wallet won’t be ashamed of the morning after. Montreal also has a nightlife scene that has been thriving for decades, and when you mix in Montreal’s old-school European influence with its new-world, cutting edge taste in partying, you have a place that can host a bachelor party with class. Something that Las Vegas has to work a bit harder at…

Montreal Nightlife: Baldwin Barmacie

For the fourth installment in the Montreal Nightlife video series, I visited Baldwin Barmacie, a sleek and sophisticated bar/nightclub/lounge on Laurier, near Avenue du Parc. I spoke to Baldwin’s Alex Baldwin about designing a place reminiscent of his own living room…

Backstage at Just for Laughs with Mike Paterson

Just for Laughs, which takes place from July 3rd to July 26th, has already begun inundating Montreal with hundreds of funny men and women. The hugely popular comedy fest turns this wonderful city into a knee-slapping laugh riot. There is so much going on that sometimes it’s hard to know where to start. For this reason, I enlisted the aid of one hilarious Montrealer, Mike Paterson, to help you go backstage at Just for Laughs, to find out not only where he’ll be playing and which shows he’s excited for, but where to all the comedians hang out after hours….

Montreal Nightlife: Ginger

For the third installment in the Montreal Nightlife video series, I visited Ginger, an asian fusion restaurant with a wild side on Avenue des Pins, near St-Laurent Boulevard. I spoke to Ginger’s Jeremy Hufana about the restaurant, as he fielded phone call after phone call from people looking for a reservation…

Drink in Montreal: Bagg Taverne

The neighborhood bar is, of course, not just for those that live nearby, though the locals certainly do tend to spend a lot of time there. Neighborhood bars do however always feature a comfortable, unpretentious atmosphere, a friendly bartender or two and a commitment to keeping their drinks reasonably priced. Bagg Taverne, located in the Montreal neighborhood of Mile End, is just this type of place. Being a person who likes this kind of spot (I think I might have one in every neighborhood in the city), I swung by during their opening night to take a look…

Montreal Folk Festival on the Canal

If you’re looking for some beautiful music in a beautiful setting, the Montreal Folk Festival on the Canal is the thing for you this weekend. The second edition of this great, one-day-only mini-fest is going down this Saturday, June 27th, on the St-Ambroise Terrace of the McAuslan Brewery, which is nestled on the banks of the Lachine Canal…

Facebook picks Montréal’s best Mojito

When used properly, social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter allow the individual to plug directly into the collective consciousness. They allow for an immediate, unfiltered understanding of what the world is thinking. At their best, they represent a paradigm shift in how we communicate. As a self-proclaimed Web 2.0 guru (I see myself as a cross between the Dalai Lama and a robot), I often use social networking to explore some of the world’s most pressing topics. Such was the case when I recently took to Facebook with an important question for the people: Where is Montréal’s best Mojito?

A Google Map of Montreal Nightlife

If you’re visiting Montréal to come experience our incredible Nightlife scene, there are so many options that it can be hard to get your bearings. You may have come to town with a couple places in mind. You may have, if you’re very astute, handsome and intelligent, been reading this Nightlife blog and gotten a couple ideas for where you want to go. But, if you’re planning to jump around the city a bit, to let the night winds take you where they will, it’s nice to know where all those spots are in relation to each other. For this reason, I’ve taken the time to make a special Nightlife in Montréal Google map for you to help plan your nights out on the town…

Great pic, huh? Hotel Nelligan’s patio bar, called Verses Sky, is one of Montréal’s best-kept secrets!

Drink in Montreal: Absinthe at Bily Kun

After an incredible four-hour meal on Mount-Royal at the lovely Au Cinquième Péché, a culinary marathon featuring a seal appetizer and smoked pork served still smoking, it was clear that no ordinary after-dinner drink would suffice. Only a round of absinthe at Bily Kun was up to the task…
