5 Best Montreal Entertainment— High Octane ideas to get you out of a winter rut!
Best Montreal Entertainment- It’s all here for us!
Montréal is one of the best cities in the world – although we just may be biased – and if you are visiting then there is a wealth of choice when you are looking for entertainment. Here are a few of our favourite spots when looking for the best Montreal entertainment during the deep freeze!
Montrealers are no stranger to brutally cold temperatures that hit the -40C, but it doesn’t stop halt their joie de vivre any less! Igloofest is one of those EPIC winter festivals that prove that Montreal is the best for nightlife & entertainment! What is it exactly? It’s an annual outdoor music festival which takes place at the Old Port of Montreal Canada. It draws in the tens of thousands in the crowd each year, with its consecutive year, taking up more of the old port as the demand for activity space increases!
Owned by one of our fave local promoters and partners I LOVE NEON, these clubs have non stop concerts and visiting DJs to get you out of your house in the winter and into some heavy beats and really fun Mile-End streets. There is a lot going on every month so be sure to check their calendar.
This bar-turned-drag-show is famous in Montréal for its exuberant joy and fun-filled events, an institution in the Canadian LGBTQ+ community. You will be dancing all night if you attend any of the shows hosted by the flamboyant Mado. Open until 3 am (midnight on a Sunday), there is no excuse for going home early to bed when you could be out enjoying a glitter-coated stage performance and then partying for the rest of the night. There are different shows every day of the week, so it is likely you will find something to your taste, and if you don’t, then it is the perfect place to experiment.
Canada has some of the best casinos in the world, which is unsurprising when we see the amount of government-backed gambling and the fact that over 43,000 people are employed in the sector. The Best Montréal entertainment is home to ‘Casino de Montréal’, the biggest casino in Canada – it has over 3200 slot machines and 115 gaming tables. And, if you’re looking for online gaming, because you’re too winter-lazy to get out we heard There are many tablet and mobile-friendly games that allow you to play in Canadian dollars and many of them, including Leo Vegas, offer bonuses such as free spins, that you don’t find in land casinos. Either way, Canada and particularly Montréal has a lot going for it in the sector of glamorous roulette and card games as well as slots, and it is well worth a go!
If you fancy a cozier night out, this jazz club and bistro sits snugly at the bottom of a romantic basement room and is perfect for a casual night of good food, great drinks, and socializing. With new acts performing regularly, you won’t be short for entertainment, and whether you love jazz or have never listened before, it is a great place to hear new bands/artists. They also have offers and deals on a regular basis, so a night out here won’t be too hard on your wallet.
Wherever you go, the most interesting part of Montréal is the people and the community within the city; always ready to help you out or give you the lowdown on local favourites. There are lots of opportunities to meet new people and have new experiences whatever your interests are.
