Montreal: Nightlife

A city of a hundred nations

Montreal Nightlife

Montreal, considered the Paris of North America, is a fantastic city for planning a night out. From all-night club hopping to pub crawls, live music venues, lounges, comedy clubs and gay and lesbian clubs Montreal has something for everyone. Weekends are busiest but the nightlife is still vibrant and often cheaper during the weekdays.

Montreal also enjoys an avid theatre and cinema crowd. For restaurants, bars, and cafés head to the downtown commercial district, from rue Stanley to rue Guy between rue Ste-Catherine and boulevard de Maisonneuve. If you’re single and looking for crowded dance floors and thumping music you won’t need to look hard or go far. Best places to go are the concentrated areas of Plateau Mont-Royal “The Main” and Old Montreal. Clubs and bars don't close until 3 am and most don't charge cover. For something a little different head to Casino de Montreal for some late night gambling. Gays and lesbians can head to Montreal's Gay Village.
