Race fans wait all year for the fast-paced nightlife and cars that rock Montreal for F1 weekend, so it’s obvious that spending your whole weekend driving and waiting around is to be avoided as much as possible…
Drawing an estimated 500,000 in recent years, Montreal Grand Prix is one of the largest tourism events in Canada, so some degree of hold up regarding travel time is to be expected…
But for those who want their weekend moving above a snail’s pace as much as possible, cut down on travel time and tedium with these tips on getting to the races:
→Do NOT drive or cab
Traffic is crazy on F1 weekend, and though metro will be packed, it is the quickest and best way to go for transporting you to and from the races.
→Plan ahead, leave early
Even though it’s easy enough to follow the droves of people to the races, figuring out when and how to get to the races (including the fastest way to get to your seat) in advance will save you time.
→Get bus tickets in advance
Getting bus ticket packages in advance will not only save you money, but save you time by avoiding the hassle of waiting in line to buy tickets on your way to and from the races. STM is selling a great 3-day Tourist Card for $14, giving you unlimited rides for the 3 days of the races.
For serious F1 fans only: You can distinguish yourself from the masses with VIP access and VIP entry to the races, one of the many features of our ultra-exclusive F1 Paddock passes—which don’t only help you make the most of the races, but of the legendary Montreal F1 nightlife—allowing you VIP entry to clubs that others will wait in lineups for all night long and never get into. A few of our ultra-exclusive Montreal Grand Prix packages are still available!!!
Travel tips are only the beginning of how we can help you with ‘getting around’ for Montreal Grand Prix weekend…
Fast track your way to Montreal Grand Prix as it should be with Montreal VIP!

At Montreal VIP, we understand that of all the benefits and joys of married life, a more exciting lifestyle is not one of them.
This is why we very serious about adhering to a strictly no-mediocrity policy for all our Montreal bachelor party groups.
Commitment to Excellence
One big difference between us and the other nightlife companies in the city is that we are a real VIP service that works with high profile CEOs and celebrities, not only with bachelor parties…And we couldn’t have upholded our reputation as the city’s premier VIP without adhering to the same commitment of excellence for all our clients.
When you meet with your VIP host, they will help you determine which of Montreal’s most elite nightclubs, restaurants, etc. suit your group’s taste and budget best, and your VIP host can escort you to ensure that only the most excellent standards of service is given to you at the club.
VIP Quality Control
Even if you do luck out and stumble upon a good choice for nightclub location admist your research, that is all the more reason your group will run into problems trying to get in, as Montreal’s best nightclubs are extremely elite.
…And if at some point you want to change plans, as notoriously unpredictable bachelor party groups are known to do, your VIP host is available to escort you to a backup hot spot—this would be pretty much impossible on your own.
NOT a nightlife tour or travel agency:
We are not a travel company here to take advantage of your ignorance of the city and plop you anywhere with any quality of services, and charge you extra just for the privilege of having taken care of the planning details for you.
As opposed to only offering a limited scope of specific services and set packages, Montreal VIP is a luxury concierge—which means we strive not merely to meet but to surpass expectations, going that extra distance to personalize our services to suit our clients and fulfill any special requests.
At Montreal VIP, we believe you should expect the bare minimum from the attire at Montreal’s fully nude strip clubs…But not from the quality of your bachelor party.
Let our clients take it from here with our feedback and testimonials.

It’s obvious that DIY planning will take up a lot more time, stress, and effort on the part of the best man. But the real difference that the group will notice is the results.
So before you go through all the tedious effort of planning, let’s outline some of the differences between DIY planning and going pro with a VIP service for a Montreal bachelor party—and see if you still think it’s worth it.
DIY: Researching and guessing which clubs will be the hottest.
VIP: Letting real insiders of the city’s nightlife bring to the where the best clubs really are, on the best nights.
Despite how much effort you put into researching Montreal nightlife or pooling together your outdated memories from past visits, there is only so much you can do as a visitor to a wild party city like Montreal…And some degree of guesswork will go into choosing the spot.
The wrong location for a bachelor party can and will make or break the night. The success of his marriage might up to chance…But the quality of club you go to for his bachelor party does not have to be.
Getting into Montreal Nightclubs
DIY: Getting on guest list.
VIP: Getting over guest list.
Getting on guest list will still have you waiting in line outside the club, and will often mean you have to show up early to get in. It will also limit your options.
VIPs going with us won’t wait in line, and will stroll past the lineups when the club is at peak party time. You will also have no problems with bouncers or service, with true VIP status inside the clubs.
DIY: Stand out in Montreal nightlife as a tourist.
VIP: Stand out in Montreal nightlife as connected.
Do you want your group of guys to look like prime targets for those who want to scam you, or like prime targets for girls to want to get with you? Do you want to spend the weekend in lineups, or have girls lined up around you?
Montreal Strip Clubs
DIY: Get taken advantage of by strippers
VIP: Have strippers want you to take advantage of them.
The stuff you have heard about Montreal strip clubs being the best in the world is true, but they are still strip clubs…Thus making your visiting group vulnerable to upsells, scams, and otherwise being treated poorly or just plain ignored on busy nights at the strip clubs.
Bringing them joyous bachelor party groups for over a decade, obviously all the city’s strip clubs owners and girls love Montreal VIP—and they make sure our clients are treated with only the best….Which in a city with the best strippers, will blow your mind.
Save the performance anxiety for the best man speech and give him the Montreal bachelor party he’s always wanted—one both he and his best man can enjoy.
For the personalized touch, go with Montreal VIP. As a luxury concierge, their specialty is going that extra distance to wow their clients with wholly customized itinerary planning and nightlife services.

Oh yah. This is where best man duties start to get fun…
Finalizing a guest list and collecting funds is definitely an annoying aspect of bachelor party planning…But luckily for best men going with us: we can take care of almost everything else!
So after you have taken the proper steps to make the bachelor party guest list (of desired attendees), time to get started on the real work: finalizing it.
Step #1: Get a general idea of activities and budget.
The easy way: check out our bachelor party packages, starting at various price points, and see which options are musts and which may be excessive for your group in question.
Step #2: Set a date.
Decide with the groom the exact dates of the bachelor party…Or, if he’s a wild type that wouldn’t mind being surprised, make him give you several options and coordinate with his work or even, significant other if applicable/needed (note: the latter may seem like a bad bachelor party idea, but it will ease her worries to feel ‘involved’).
Step #3: Send out bachelor party invites with note to RSVP/pay by certain day.
It might sound tacky or awkward to ask about money…But for best man planning a destination bachelor party, it is crucial to get as much funds as possible up front. Our per/person rates make this easy.
Step #4: Harass as needed.
Note: Phone calls are easiest and best.
Step #5: Collect funds and finalize the guest list.
Guest lists, like many aspects of bachelor parties, can be unpredictable…Because we understand this, we can make arrangements for you with as little as 24 hours notice. And incase some guys are “maybes”, don’t show up, etc., we can modify your trip/package at any time.
