COCKTAILS IN THE GAY VILLAGE: WHERE TO START THE PARTY

“Where do I get a good cocktail in Montreal?” – This question is frequently posed as travelers search out the ideal place to get their drink on. Well before I proceed with an answer, I want you to know that you’ve come to the right place. Montrealers love to drink. Late night parties are the norm around here. Bars and nightclubs are open until 3 AM, and then after-hours clubs continue the party to the wee hours of the morning. But when dinner has ended, and the bars aren’t yet hopping, what does a gay do?

‘IT’S AN HONOR JUST TO BE NOMINATED!’ WHATEVER. WE WANT TO WIN THIS!

Each year our friends over at tripoutgaytravel.com hold a little awards contest that celebrates the best in the glamorous/scandalous world of gay travel. Montreal has been nominate for “Best Global Destination” – which makes sense for a variety of reasons: stellar gay village, delicious food, accessibility to Americans, cute accents and salacious nightlife. We’re kinda also awesome for hosting the world’s first international “Queer of the Year” contest. I thought I’d make a little video that highlights the ‘gayness’ of Montreal. We promise to keep on rockin’ it if you show us some voting love. You can vote with your Facebook or Twitter accounts, or you can keep it anonymous. But whatever you do, just get out there and vote now… for Montreal!
