Taverne Jos Dion: Quebec City's oldest watering hole
This little tavern has been around since 1933, which makes it the oldest bar still in operation in the city. It's always been a blue-collar sort of place - and it still is - but more and more visitors are dropping by to get a taste of the tavern's authentic atmosphere, and you don't have to worry about feeling out of place: the staff will make sure to give you a warm, friendly welcome. Beer is not expensive, and if you come at lunch time you can arrange to have some pizza delivered from the place next door. Happy hour is usually a busy time, with the typical crowd of workers dropping by for a drink or two before heading home, and the place also gets pretty lively in the evening whenever there's a hockey game on TV. It truly is a fun and unique place to go for those looking to enjoy a real local experience!

Taverne 321: $4 La Pinte!
This is a proper drinker's bar with no frills decor and a simple pizza menu to cater for those beer munchies. The clientele are mostly male, singly or in small groups, out for a few beers and the normal pub-style shooting of the bull. There's the usual hockey games and reruns on the big screen TV's, a pool table (if I remember correctly) and a couple of gaming machines.
Bar staff, all male, are professional but cheery with it and even though my French isn't up to conversations I found the atmosphere genial and laid-back.
At 4 bucks "pour une pinte" 321 suited me.Related to:

Passing Through the Walled Fortress
When we walked into the Old City for our fancy evening meal, we passed through the St. Jean gate in the wall around the city (photo taken earlier in the day). The fortifications for the city were begun by the French in 1690 with a series of redoubts linked by palisades. With the fall of the city to the British in 1759, it was not until after the American Revolution that stronger walls were erected (1778-83), after the city beat off an American attack. Further fortifications were added between 1786-1812 during the Napoleonic Wars period. The walls run for 4.6 km (~3 miles) around the Upper City and are about 12 m (40 ft) high and are between 2-8 m thick.Related to:

More crowded than "Les Yeux Bleus"
Dress Code: very casual..

Nightlife is a paradox on...
Nightlife is a paradox on Mountain at tremblant. If you're 18-21 you will be in heaven. You can drink legally with the other children. ID's are not even checked. However, if you are a bit older you will be hard strapped to find a good time. Try Le Petit Caribou for the youngster scene, and the Diable Brewpub for a more sedate scene. La Forge has a killer barrel of Hogardeen as well as a nice Scotch selection, but again, the excitement factor is limited. Weekends pick up a lot, but weekdays are best left for sleeping.
18 year olds drinking like they are seasoned professionals.
Dress Code: Club. Minus 10 years. It is not uncommon to hear (repeatedly) music that was 'out' in the stares years ago (think Macarena)
Cirque du Soleil: Vareka: Cirque du Soleil: Vareka
Just an awesome show. Splurge for the VIP tickets if you can - you get a private tent with cocktails, appetizers. The 'goodies' awaiting us during the intermisison where out of this world!
Dress Code: We thought we'd better dress up as we had VIP tickets, but was all casual.
All of Canada could quite...
All of Canada could quite possibly my favorite nightlife spot!
The unique thing about Canadian nightlife (for all you underagers out there) 18 to drink and I feel I need to give a shout out to the Quebec women. Oh and one more thing, Molson XXX.
Bar Chez Son Père: Bar Chez Son Père
One of the best places in Quebec to hear folk music.They have music all week long, usually a singer/guitarist, sometimes duets. You'll hear song from Quebec, France and also english songs. The staff is great, and the caliber of the musicians is pretty good...No sequencers/machine/tape crap!
Dress Code: Very relaxed and formal
I'm afraid we did not see any...
I'm afraid we did not see any nightlife, although there has to be. There were signs that mentioned jazz-nights and concerts but we did not see a discotheque (but that does not have to say that there isn't one). I should say, check it out!
Museums there are enough, and restaurants too. So you do not have to sit in your hotel at night.
