Drink with the stars at Altitude 737. Located on the top three floors of the tallest building in Montreal, Altitude 737 offers unbelievable views of the city you won’t find anywhere else. Frequented by celebrities, this bar is the place to see and be seen in Montreal. Altitude 737 offers a dinner menu with seating options including dinning on the outdoor terrace which overlooks the city. Dress to impress, as this club is known for its upscale reputation. Although, if you want to experience Altitude 737 without the pretentious attitudes, locals suggest visiting on a week night where the views are just as spectacular and the drinks just as tasty, without feeling overwhelmed by the large crowds. Even if clubbing is not your typical late night activity, make it over to Altitude 737, it’s worth it for the one-of-a-kind view.

Not much of a clubber or just worn out from all night partying? Get out and grab a drink at Thursday’s off Crescent Street. This casual bar is a great place to grab a drink with friends and travel buddies. Get a bite to eat there as well, their menu is full of traditional Franco-American pub food that, like its beer, will be sure to keep your stomach filled. Thursday’s atmosphere is fun and inviting, with a slew of young people, there are several weekly events where you can mingle with locals and enjoy all Thursday’s has to offer.

Located in the Sir Winston Churchill Pub Complex on Crescent Street, Winnie’s is a great English-style pub to grab a drink or bite to eat. Open 7 days a week for lunch, dinner and daily happy hour, Winnies’ inviting atmosphere keeps locals and tourists coming back for its laid back attitude. The newly renovated décor fuses sophisticated modern attitude with traditional English pub style aesthetics. A great place to watch the game, listen to live music or just hang out with friends, Winnie’s is one of the most popular bars and considered by locals to be a Montreal night time establishment.

If Austin Powers lived in Montreal, I would bet on A GoGo Lounge being his most frequented lounge of choice. Immediately upon your arrival at A GoGo Lounge, the groovy lounge atmosphere will overtake you. Menus on old records, cocktails by the name of Kryptonite and psychedelic colors, it’s impossible not to feel like you’ve stepped back into the swinging 60s. Retro beats will have you dancing the night away as you sip on your aptly named cocktail, whether it be Captain America or Pussycat.  A GoGo Lounge is a fun place for those looking for an unconventional lounge without any pretentious attitudes or overpriced drinks.

Club 1234 may be one of the wildest nightclubs in Montreal. Located in the heart of downtown, Club 1234 gives clubbers the ultimate experience in light shows, dance music and even acrobatic acts. Since the disco era, Club 1234 has been known as one of Montreal’s most popular clubs, inviting its guests to let go and party like there’s no tomorrow. Frequented by celebrities like Grace Jones and The Village People throughout the 70s, Club 1234 faded after the height of disco fever and was once again revived in the last decade. Since its return to the Montreal club scene, Club 1234 has maintained a reputation of bringing only the uninhibited experiences to its party patrons.
