New Years Eve Montreal

Montreal for New Year’s Eve? Great nightclubs, great concerts, great parties with great cocktails and people? Great idea. Because, as regular readers of this blog know, Montreal’s reputation as an international nightlife destination is well deserved…

Weird Montreal Holiday Parties

If you’re anything like me, you have more than enough egg nog-fueled events coming up on your social calendar. Sure, the holiday season is a time to give thanks, but it has also become a time to wear bad sweaters while making endless small talk. Thank Christmas that there are some off-the-wall holiday events going on this year in Montreal that allow you to celebrate the season while actually having a good time…

Montreal Bach Festival

You wouldn’t be crazy for thinking that a classical music festival does not totally fit the “nightlife” mandate. To that I would I say: did you read my post about Star Wars and the symphony? Ok, so the Star Wars soundtrack might not be the best proof of my interest and expertise in the field of classical music. But any music fan worth their salt has to recognize the incredible complexity, scope and beauty of the genre. Or, at the very least, allow themselves to be swept away by hearing it performed by professionals in a sublime setting. This is what the Montreal Bach Festival offers the city from November 21st to December 5th…

Playing Pool in Montreal

Over the last several months, I’ve written a lot of posts for this blog about places that serve drinks. I’ve told you about the city’s best terasses (and explained that that is French for “patio”), Irish Pubs and, more recently, where the best places in Montreal are to go bowling. The next logical step, if there is such a thing in the nightlife department, is to tell you where the best places to play pool in Montreal are…

Lady Gaga in Montreal

When Lady Gaga kicks off her world tour in Montreal on November 27th at the Bell Centre, the world will be watching. In just a few short years, this pint-sized singer has become one of the most famous musicians in the world and this tour will, no doubt, dominate the entertainment media in each one of the 16 cities she plays. As a blogger, I’m fairly confident that I could just write “Lady Gaga” 50 times in a row and this would still end up being one of my most read posts…

Star Wars: May the Symphony Be With You

The music from the Star Wars movies has become so well-known that I could write something as ridiculous as “dun, dun, dun, da dun-dun, da dun-dun” and you’d actually know what I was talking about. One huge part of our multi-decade obsession with the George Lucas film franchise is the iconic music that accompanies it and, later this month in Montreal, you’ll get the chance to hear it in person….

M for Montreal

Now in its 4th year, M for Montreal is the city’s ultimate out-of-town musical schmooze-down. Taking place November 19th-21st, it functions as a showcase for international industry folks, journalists and “taste-makers”, whoever that is exactly. But while it will be a mecca for dudes in leather coats, laminates and Blackberries, for the rest of us it simply means 3 great nights featuring some of the Montreal’s best bands…

Where to find Karaoke in Montreal

As the video above demonstrates, everyone who lives at my apartment takes karaoke very seriously. Though my colleagues Daniel and Tamy have already taken a stroll down questionable-singing-street, I thought I’d give you an overview of what Montreal’s karaoke scene has to offer the late-night visitor to the city…

Montreal Halloween

Halloween is supposed to be for children. It’s basically about costumes and candy. But adults decided fairly early on that they still wanted both tricks and/or treats on October 31st and Halloween has since become one of the wildest nights of the year. Montreal is no exception…

Party Montreal: October, November, and December

The end of Pop Montreal signals, for the most part, the denouement of Montreal’s non-stop festival season. But, as the leaves turn and winter descends upon the city in billowy white flakes, there is still a full slate of things to do. Let’s take a look…
