Hey! I'm headed to Montreal the last weekend in May. I've already got my hostel reservation, now I'm just looking for things to do! I'd love to go to a club (it'd be my first time), but other than that I'm open to suggestions. I'm there for three days, so I can probably to quite a bit! Where are some good clubs? Any input will be appreciated!

Hey James,
Montreal is an awesome city. I was there last October. What hostel are you staying at? I stayed at Auberge de Jeunesse (Hostelling International) in downtown. It's a very convenient location since it is about a ten minute walk from Crescent St. That is where most of the bars and clubs are. Here are my recommendations for clubs:

1) Club Vatican
2) Club LaBoom

Hope this helps.

Hiya James, a Montrealer here. ;)

Cresent street is ok for bars, but most of the clubs in the city are located on and around St. Laurent street. Honestly though, there are some great places all over the city. Some good ones...

  • Go-Go Lounge - St. Laurent
  • Buddha Bar - St. Laurent
  • Buona Notte - St. Laurent (supper club/lounge)
  • Envy - St. Laurent
  • 1234 (pronouced twelve-thirtyfour) on Montagne Street
  • Time Club - St. Jacques
  • La Boom - Cresent

If you're looking for a bar/pub, I'd try McGibbin's Irish Pub on Bishop or Hurleys on Cresent.

Katie ;)

Montreal has an awesome nightlife. Most clubs are concentrated on Crescent and St. Laurent Streets. There are so many to choose from! It really depends on what type of music you like. Hip hop? house? techno? rock? live bands? We're also well known for our strip clubs, if that's your thing.

i'd actually love to try out a techno club! i'm living in the south (usa) and people think its "too foreign and weird" here. i cant wait to get up there! how are dress codes usually? i don't have a ton of clothes that will 'impress' people!

The dress code isn't ridiculously strict. I mean, it's pretty standard dress code. No sneakers, no jeans. Everything else works. Club Vatican may have techno stuff. I am not too sure though. Look them up online. They usually tell you what kinda music is played at the specific club. Hope this helps.

The Vatican is more Top 40's, but the crowd is young, so you may like it. I'm not into techno, so I can't really recommend a club. I went to Newtown on Crescent a few times and one night the DJ was heavily into techno, but the crowd there may be a little older because it's considered to be a little posh. There's also London on St Laurent that was quite techno-y the night I tried it out. Get one of the free newspapers (Hour and Voir) once you're here; it'll tell you what's going on for that week at the different clubs. If you go on Crescent or St Laurent street, the clubs are literally lined up one after the other. You can really just get into one, check it out, hop to the next and so on.

Good choice on choosing montreal for a party location! You'll love it up here! I can proudly say that I've been to almost everybar in the city. Cresent-bishop streets are very pubish, which is great when you want to sit on a terace and drink guiness, but if you're looking for a party..
-Jet Night Club is pretty hot these days
-LaBoom on cresent
-Cheers on Mackay is good on wednesdays (cause its ladies night)
-Club 1234 on cresent is good (its also the adress so its easy to find)

have fun partyin! tip your bartenders, we appreciate it.
