    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Excellent DJ, martinis and chillout decor. There is a terrasse for those extra warm summer nights. A definite Zen sum up! Oh and you have got to try their Lychee concoction, it is sooo tasty...

    TRICK FOR OUTSIDERS:
    Montreal's nightlife goes on all week (yes you can have the time of your life on a monday night) and if its been a sunny day its usually going to be a live night!

    Dress Code: Yes, you have got to dress up!

    Sir Winston Churchill Pub Complexe: Laid back Pub

    by kehale Written Sep 29, 2009

    Both of my visits to Montreal have included a stop in at Sir Winston Churchill's Pub on Crescent Street. My second visit in March 2007 showed that the place had been renovated since my first visit in March of 2003. The atmosphere on the main floor is very laid back. It's the type of place that has something for everyone has it is considered a complex made up of 3 floors.
    Sir Winston Churchill Pub, Winnie's Bar and Karina's Lounge on the top floor. With these three different atomospheres, you're guaranteed to find something that will suite everyone!
    Ladies - you can rest assured - you're pretty much guaranteed to not have to spend a cent on a drink ;) But that's just my experience! Enjoy!

  • Saint Laurent blvd: To Party like a True Montrealer

    by true_mtler Written Sep 20, 2009

    When tourists come to town and ask a local where the best place to party is the reply is usually Crescent street. Most tourists hang out there (particularly from the states) because it reminds them of home. However, Montreal's best kept secret has to be Saint Laurent blvd, or referred to as the main by locals. It offers a variety of clubs, lounges, bars, inexpensive post-drinking restaurants, and everyone is beautiful. The downside is that lines to tend to be quite long to get into bars and clubs but it is worth the wait. My advice is to get there earlier, like 11:00, just to be certain that you will get in. And the bright side is that most places do not charge a cover fee, thus more money to spend on alcohol.
    Good places to frequent would be Go Go Lounge, A-side or B-side, Rouge, Suko, Tokyo, and anything else that may catch your eye.
    And if you happen to be in town when the main is closed for it's sidewalk sale, the party becomes even wilder and you never know where the night may take you.

    Dress Code: If you're planning on hitting the main, be sure to dress to impress. Don't show up in a t-shirt and jeans on a friday or saturday night and expect to be let into most lounges and clubs. Jeans are acceptable if they are nice and trendy, but they are always worn with a standout piece, like killer pumps or a great dressy top for women and fashionable dress shirts for men.

    stereo: if you party from say 4:00am - 12:00pm

    by CASS1DY Updated Apr 20, 2009

    For those of you who have heard that Montreal's got the best Night life in North America,,, (maybe following NY), and really want to check it out. Get some rest and head to the gay village around 3:00- 4:00am. on st.catherine just past Berry, there'll be a nice sized line, if you're up for the wait, it's worth it. Be prepared to pay anywhere from $25-$50 at the door depending on who's DJing. You won't be able to purchase alcohol (if it's after 3:00a or before 9:00a) or leave and go back in (they change this rule a lot so ask on your way in and again on your way out if you plan on going back in).

    ps. This bar is currently closed for renovations. It should be re-opened by Summer 2010.

    Dress Code: anything you feel like. But it's going to be hot, and you'll want comfortable shoes.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    My VT friend Isa, her husband and I went here after dinner. It was a nice sports bar with plenty of tables and televisions to accomodate all of the loyal Habs fans inside!
    Lots of people were having snacks and food and everything looked really good. We had just eaten dinner so we did not eat here, but the food sure looked good!

    Diese Onze: Jazz on St. Denis

    by jdm267 Written Oct 27, 2008

    Diese Onze is one of my favorite Jazz spots in the world. What makes it exceptional is that it is a nice bar that has live jazz, instead of a club where you pay unnecessary covers to watch live jazz. The simplicity, lack of pretension and of course excellent local and international musicians make this place world class.

    My friend took me here for my birthday and I am completely hooked. Great place to visit after dinner. Nice selection of wine and whiskeys and relaxing overall vibe.

    B-Side: Clubs on St. Laurent

    by jdm267 Written Oct 27, 2008

    B-Side is a exciting lounge/club on the Main. There are two floors and even an open area upstairs which is nice during the summer. B-Side can be unmanageable during Friday and Saturday nights. Still, sometimes the debauchery is worth it. Beautiful bartenders, creative mixed drinks, lots of young Montrealers and a less than pretentious door policy. It's great place to party.

    Dieu du ciel: Outstanding microbrewerie on the Plateau

    by yooperprof Written Jul 27, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A helpful and informative fellow who I met at the Mondial de la Biere directed me to this outstanding brew-pub in the Plateau neighborhood. He said that "Dieu du ciel" is generally regarded as setting the standard which other micros in the Montreal region aspire toward. It might not look like much on the outside, but inside you will indeed discover a heavenly assortment of some of the best beers in North America.

    Food options here are quite limited, so you might want to arrange your eating schedule accordingly - it's not the place to match a fine meal with an outstanding beverage. (I had to make do with nachos.)

    Le Saint-Ciboire: A "pub quebecois" on St. Denis

    by yooperprof Updated Jul 15, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I stopped in this amiable St. Denis pub to quaff another excellent Montreal beer, and to sample the tunes of a popular local folk-rock-pop ensemble called "Why Why Not?" The Saint-Ciboire has a wide beer list, and the interior features a large, generous-sized bar - with good space for music - and dancing.

    Just for Laughs/Juste Pour Rire Festival: Comedy festival in July

    by Dabs Updated Mar 22, 2008

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Just for Laughs Festival runs the entire month of July 2006, I think you can get tickets in advance by calling the box office but we went to the box office on St-Laurent on the day of the show and found they still had tickets left for most of the shows. You may find some discounted tickets for the same day but not all shows are discounted, the one we selected was not discounted.

    The website has a full listing of the options, you’ll find stand up comedians, some of them big names like John Cleese or Craig Ferguson, revues, outdoor performances and the show we opted for, La Clique, a cabaret/burlesque show. If you have a chance to see this show in Montreal or in another city, I’d highly recommend it. Sword swallowing, double jointed tricks with tennis rackets that had me laughing so hard I had tears rolling down my face, British gentlemen performing incredible stunts, a very naughty magic trick and a bathtub acrobatic finale that’s sure to leave the ladies wanting more (not to mention many of the men).

    If you do opt for La Clique, seating is general admission, and although there aren’t really any bad seats, if you get there early, you can get one of the front row seats where you’re likely to become part of the act.

    Ultralight: Cool and Funky

    by xedenx Written Jan 26, 2008

    Located in the clubbing district, Ultralight plays fantastic raggaeton and soca, mixed with hip hop and r&b. It's high energy and a lot of fun. The interior is decorated in pristine whites, from the walls to the leather couches, and under the black lights, the place positively glows. The booths upstairs can be reserved, and have a built in ice bucket for chilling wine or champagne. Fantastic to prevent potential spillage from knocking over bottles. Drink prices are about average and cover is $15 CAD.

    Dress Code: Club wear
