One of the most tolerant and open-minded cities on earth, Montreal has always been known for it’s nightlife and European influence! During the prohibition era, Americans escaped to the Canadian “Sin City” to consume alcoholic beverages and party until dawn. The legal drinking age is 18, making it a hot party destination especially for our neighbours to the south who need to wait another three years in order to access a bar or nightclub. Montreal nightlife starts around 11:30pm and alcohol is no longer served after 3:00am sharp! It’s not uncommon to have locals meet at 9pm and have a few drinks among friends before heading out! Drinks are 9$ on average, depending on the establishment. Here are our recommendations for going out in the city, from Monday to Sunday:
Monday: Blvd 44
Monday is an unusual day to go out but don’t worry, we still have you covered if you wish to dance the night away with good music! Monday is Blvd 44’s industry night, which means that staff from bars and clubs around Montreal will be there, spending their night off. The crowd tends to be younger and prices are in the industry average!
If you’re looking for somewhere to go on a Tuesday night, look no further! Joverse has a great selection of fresh tapas including oysters, tacos and korean barbecued wings, just to name a few. Pair this with a cocktail from their great selection, and your night is off to a great start. Drinks and food are on the pricier side but it’s to be expected for a venue in the Old Port of Montreal.
If you want to spend your Wednesday night at the hottest spot, you will need to play your cards right! Your safest bet is to arrive early (around 10pm) and have some drinks or food at the bar. Around 11:30pm, the place starts getting busier, the lounge vibe drops and the real party starts! The music is great but drinks and food are on the pricier side. Don’t forget to dress nice!
Starting on April 13th, Muzique nightclub will be hosting Latin Nights every thursday. @514promo pairs up with Muzique to bring you their hottest event: Sabor Latino! Open bar for ladies all night and a third floor terrace, Muzique has it all to please everyone. To get a spot on the guestlist, contact 514.400.6669 or @514promo
Saturday: Rouge Bar
A big club on the famous St-Laurent Blvd. The crowd tends to be 25+. Head there on a saturday night if you like great music from all genres. There are two floors with two different vibes. It tends to get very crowded, so make sure you get there early or book a table if you want to make sure that entrance isn’t a problem (especially if you are a group of guys).
You’ll have so much fun enjoying these Montreal hot spots, that you’ll want to do it all over again.
