MONTREAL BUZZ GUIDE TO NEW YEAR’S EVE 2012

New Year’s Eve in Montreal, a town with a well-established reputation for not taking its festivities lightly, provides ample opportunity for old acquaintances not to be forgotten or never brought to mind. From Crescent Street to St-Laurent Blvd., from downstairs jazz clubs to skyscraper-high dance clubs, and from comedy to cabaret to food to live music, ushering in a New Year in Montreal is fraught with nothing so much as possibility. Consider these your keys to the city, and more importantly on Dec. 31, the party…

THE MONTREAL BREWPUB EXPERIENCE WITH LOCAL MONTREAL TOURS

They say that the best way to get to know a city is to drink up the local experiences and feast your eyes on the sights. Actually, I’m not sure anyone has said that, but based on Local Montreal’s tours, people really should start. Local Montreal offers informal walking tours that focus on Montreal’s distinct culture, history and gastronomy. They provide a much needed, authentic, non touristy glimpse into the heart of the city. We teamed up with Local Montreal for their Brewpub Experience tour where we strolled around the plateau, sampled some artisanal beers and became acquainted with some of the city’s best kept secrets.

MONTREAL’S SNOW VILLAGE TAKES OVER PARC JEAN-DRAPEAU

Until March 31, Parc Jean Drapeau will be home to Montreal’s most wonderfully wintery attraction, the Snow Village. In fact, the Snow Village is an hommage to the city itself, boasting icy reproductions of Montreal’s building and monuments, not to mention a hotel, restaurant, bar, convention centre, chapel and, fittingly, a whole bunch of igloos. An obvious must-see for locals and tourists alike. To make reservations, visit the Snow Village website or call (514) 788-2181.

LATE NIGHT CUISINE AT NOUVEAU PALAIS

The old Nouveau Palais was a sleepy, old-timey diner on Bernard street in Montreal’s Mile End neighbourhood, a basic bacon, eggs and late-night poutine affair. But the new Nouveau Palais is under different management and the times they are a changin’. The latest incarnation of this storied diner has everyone buzzing because it offers restaurant goers the charm of the classic diner experience with a brand new menu that comes to life at night…

GAY NEW YEAR’S EVE

As 2011 races into a dramatic finish, it’s time to reflect on the year gone and look forward on what’s to come. 2011 was an amazing 12 months in Montreal. From Igloofest and Nuit Blanche, from Bixi bikes and summer festivals to Queer of the Year, Montreal has never been busier! While it’s easy to already be thinking ahead to another year of cabane a sucre, terraces, restaurants and parties… let’s not get too ahead of ourselves. 2011 is not technically over and we plan on going out on December 31 with one last hurrah!

From the simply intimate to the ludicrously grandiose, from the under-your-nose to the off-the-beaten-path, Montreal once again plays host to a huge array of partays this New Year’s Eve, any one of which just may be just the ticket to ringing in a new year that some sayers of sooth are predicting will be our last. Might as well do it up right this NYE…
