NFT: Montreal Bachelor Party Advice

NYGmen58 : 1/3/2019 10:15 am
I am helping to plan a bachelor party in Montreal at the end of March and need some help with specific places to go, things to do, restaurants to eat at, etc. We will be a larger group (12 in total) and basically everyone wants to eat, drink, watch college basketball (will be during the Elite 8/Final Four weekend of March Madness), and go to strip clubs/massage parlors.

First off, can anyone suggest the best areas or specific bars, lounges, etc. to go out drinking in? Most of the group is in their early-mid 30s, so I don't think we need to be going to dance clubs but certainly somewhere fun and lively (potentially with TVs showing the games) where we can get after it.

Secondly, what are the best strip clubs/nuru massage places to visit (not everyone will want/have to parktake but many do/will). Are these all in the same general area or are they scattered throughout the city?

Additionally, any restaurant recommendations (especially somewhere that can accommodate a group of 12 with either a large table or private room) would be appreciated. We're probably looking to do one casual dinner (nice sports bar?), one more formal/upscale dinner, and maybe a 3rd that's somewhere in between, so all suggestions welcome.

Finally, I'd like to plan one "non-debauchery" type activity for during the day, perhaps something historic/cultural to enjoy in the city. Are there any good historic attractions/sites worth visiting or tours of Old Montreal worth doing?

Thank you in advance!

is it possible to move it to May/June?

non boozing activities we did
paintball
formula 1 race

you can tour the old city. also Quebec city (2.5 hr drive)is great.

USD/CAD conversion rate is really in your favor. it will be fun

Sutra is a quality gentlemanís club

Avoid the ones with the big flashy signs on st Catherineís unless you have a thing for stretch marks
Few ideas

1. Stay downtown, thatís where all the strip clubs/massage parlors are. We stayed at the Lowes and it was a great location. Somewhere around there works. Itís weird, the business district is where all the grimey shit is;
2. Old Montreal is great. Super nice. They try to make that the dinner/family spot
3. http://gardemanger.ca Was best restaurant i went to - lobster poutine. Nice spot, small but accommodated 8-10 of us.

Thereís some clubby dinner that everyone does. Donít do it. It sucked. Expensive and terrible loud club music and 500 bachelor parties ie no chicks.
Also do the whitewater rafting

Tons of fun, easy river. Not technical at all. Mostly goofing off with some scary drops and cool water features.

White water rafting in Montreal in March would be kinda bone chilling.

did his there in June a couple of years ago and I missed it. Haven't stopped hearing about how great of a time it was. They found a female online that helped them plan the weekend and acted as their liaison. I'll ask what her name was

Did a club night at La Voute and got a table for friday night. was a lot of fun

Olive et Gaurmondo for lunch

Damas and Foxy for big group dinners. Damas is very filling btw, so beware

For activities we went to the casino and did axe throwing as well

If college basketball is an important part

of the trip, you might want to check the schedule. The elite 8 and final four are never held on the same weekend.
Schwartzís for lunch

A few suggestions

Everything you are looking for is right within downtown and walking distance from any downtown hotel.

La Cage aux Sports bar on St Catherine St and near the Bell Centre will have the games on and they have plenty of big screens.

There are a couple of good tours of old Montreal:
If you want to tour Montreal and sample some of the local food- https://localfoodtours.com/montreal/tours/old-montreal-food-tour/
If you just want to tour without food -
https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Products-g155032-zfg11864%2C11865%2C11866%2C11867%2C11868%2C11870%2C11871%2C11873%2C11876%2C11879%2C11880%2C11882%2C12022%2C12023-Montreal_Quebec.html

As far as gentlemen's clubs, downtown Montreal isn't known for them. The best clubs are off island. But if you go, the club with the best looking girls and more like an American club(tourist trap) is ChezParee https://chezparee.ca/en/

If you want a real adventure, farther down on Catherine Street is Cafe Cleopatra where the decor (and some of the girls) hasn't changed in 30 years. Beer is cheaper than ChezParee, you will find more locals there, and the atmosphere is more relaxed there.

I suggest getting an Airbnb... some awesome places for a group that big.

We went to a local curling club for a few hours. Itís a lot more fun than it looks.
