It’s time to give you some advices about going out in Montreal!
In Montreal there are several amazing bars, clubs, lounges and pubs amongst which you can choose. Montreal nightlife is one of the best in the world. The most popular djs always set at least one date of their tour here.
So, when you are in town just check the schedule of some of the majors clubs to find out when Bob Sinclair, Swedish House Mafia, Erick Morillo, Steve Angello e co are stepping by.
In Montreal there are many very well located clubs.
At the rooftop of a skyscraper in the citycentre you can find Altitude 737, at the 41st floor. It’s better to go there during the warmer months of the year so that you can profit of the amazing terrace from where you can admire a wonderful panorama of the city and all its lights. The entrance is free but you have to get dressed following a specific dresscode since there is a quite strict selection at the entrance. Then get in the elevator and, if you are a girl, enjoy your first free drink!! Sorry boys 🙂
Then, in another fantastic location there is Terrasse Bonsecours. I love this place! It’s situated in a sort of little island in the old port area. You need to cross a wooden bridge to get to the entrance. The spectacular lights and colors make a great picture in front of you when you arrive.
Really one of the best clubs in Montreal!
Another more European club is Buonanotte, in Saint Laurent. This place is owned by italians and it’s also a nice spot to have a good dinner with friends.
Here is where we had our first “Spritz” overseas.
As a starter we had Parma ham and as a main course pizza. As truly italians we really enjoyed our meal!
Last but not least, a very nice and particular club is Velvet Club, again in the old port neighborhood. The club is on two floors and it gives you the feeling of being in two different places at the same time. The ground floor is very chic and elegant, but then, when you go downstairs, it’s like walking in the basement of a castle. The roof is very low, the dj plays right on the floor near the bar and she is a woman: she is great!
Other places we enjoyed are: Muzique, Commission des Liqueurs (both in Saint Laurent) and La Mouche in Saint Denis. Just try them!
Remember: Always bring your ID and be at the club around 10,30/11 pm to avoid long queues. We’re in America!
