Montreal Strip Clubs

Montreal Strip Clubs

There are a few things you probably already know about Montreal strip clubs: they’re full of sexy dancers, they offer dances at more affordable prices than clubs in many other cities, and they’re an integral part of almost every Montreal bachelor party. However, there are also probably a few things you didn’t know about Montreal strip clubs…

Full-contact dances are the same price as non-contact ones: Yep, that’s right. A performance that requires you to keep your hands to yourself and one that allows you to let them roam are the same price. Need we ask which one you’re going to choose?

Montreal strippers are freelancers: This means they can dance at any club they choose. Because of this, the quality of dancers at clubs can vary. We know which Montreal strip clubs offer consistently high quality, and we’ll share this information with you.

Your Montreal VIP host will tell you everything else you need to know about Montreal strip clubs.

As a VIP you’ll never be asked to pay a cover charge, and we can also take care of tips, arrange a private show at a Montreal strip club, or set up a personal stage show for the groom. Heading out with Montreal VIP will let you experience the best Montreal strip clubs in a whole new way.

Entering a strip club as part of Montreal VIP will earn you special treatment amongst the staff. Yeah, that’s right, the girls tend to flock towards Montreal VIP clients because of the clientele we bring them regularly sets us apart from anything else… Bad news for the patron, good news for you!

How to Have a Proper Scotch

It has been claimed that style and distinction make a man, and some are more interested in bachelor party elements that refine manliness, rather than roughen it. Whether you are looking to class up a bachelor party you are planning, or just want to partake in the manly ritual of appreciating scotch, read on.

Step 1: Learn how to drink scotch properly.

A good scotch should be served in a tulip-shaped glass, which allows the drink to be swirled without spilling, as well as be ‘nosed’ properly. However, scotch is also commonly served in a rocks glass.

Whatever flack you get, a splash of water is highly recommended (as seen on The Art of Manliness). Water cuts some of the strong alcoholic burn, allowing for the more subtle undertones of flavor to be enjoyed.

While many are against the presence of ice in a scotch, some experts and distillers claim it’s the best way to be drunk, allowing different phases of the scotch to be tasted as the ice melts (as sourced on Ask Men). To do so, a knowledgeable bartender recommended getting one double rocks glass of scotch, one glass of ice, and a spoon, then gradually stirring in ice to taste the subtle variations.

However you drink your scotch, make sure you drink it slowly, which will enable you to experience it to the fullest.

Step 2: Find a good scotch bar.

One of the best Montreal pubs for scotch is L’Île Noire, a relaxed but classy venue which offers over 100 brands of scotch, as well as an appropriately warm staff and atmosphere.

Step 3: Bachelor party ideas?

If you are interested in incorporating other ‘manly’ traditions into your Montreal bachelor party, why not make it a ‘Scotch and Cigars Stag’? As well as quality scotch bars, don’t forget that Montreal offers fine Cuban cigars, which can be enjoyed at select cigar lounges like Stogies. Or, give the groom a starter scotch for his new chapter of manhood. It’s rumored to help with the nerves.

Montreal BYOW Restaurants

Perfectly in keeping with the French stereotypes you no doubt hope to find in the oft-called ‘Paris of North America’, Montrealers love their wine and food, and, in fact, have a way you can enjoy them both that (sacrebleu!) isn’t even legal in France: BYOB Restaurants.

According to the Régie des alcools, des courses et des jeux, Montréal had 362 Bring Your Own Wine (BYOW) restaurants in October 2012. There is a variety of both high end and cheap Montreal BYOW restaurants, offering just about every type of food. Bring Your Own Wines can save you $40-$80 on your bill, so it’s a great opportunity to sample some high end cuisine that would otherwise be over your spending threshold, or just to go really light on the spending for a night out without having to go light on the drinking—or sacrifice the quality of food (really—if you know where to go, the food won’t only taste good because of all the wine you will be drinking).

Including some lesser-known gems as well as some of the most popular ones in the city, here is just a sampling of quality BYOW restaurants in Montreal:

Low Price Range (Doable for Under $30 Per Person):

Pizzeria Napoletana: Italian, Pizza and Pasta, big place, Little Italy

Eduardo’s: Italian, huge portions, cheap, small/intimate place but lively, Duluth (Plateau neighborhood)

Grenadine: French/Asian fusion, small/intimate, downtown

L’Académie: French, good for people watching, youngish crowd, big venue, Plateau

Tay Do: Thai/Vietnamese, cheap, big place, fried pineapples for dessert, Duluth (Plateau neighborhood)

Medium to High Price Range

Apollo: international, different menu each night, terrasse, screens for sports, McGill

Quartier General: French bistro, meat and seafood-focused menu, Plateau

O’Thym: French, trendy, local ingredients, The Village

La Colombe: French market, fixed menu, great service, classy, Duluth (Plateau)


Many of the above are ideal for groups, but make sure you make reservations in advance, as many of the above are very popular.

Also, some may be more suited to your group than others, and many great ones aren’t even on the list. In a city overflowing with BYOW suited to every taste and budget, why not make sure the one you are going to is perfect for your Montreal bachelor party or other occasion? Let your VIP help you choose the best Montreal restaurants for your itinerary.
