Hmmm...

Well, we do have a casino, its on the Parc Jean-Drapeau (pretty much anybody, including the metro employees, can help you find it, its not difficult).

For pubs, I would suggest the Pub St-Elizabeth (the terrasse is very nice). Its on 1412 Sainte-Elizabeth, corner St-Catherine, near the junction of st-catherine and St-Denis. Its on a little side street (St-Elizabeth) so its a bit tricky to find it. Arrive early on weekends because it has become a very popular spot these past years.

Other than that, there is always good irish pubs. The McKibbins is on 1426 Bishop St. (corner St-Catherines, not very far from Crescent) Its typical irish fare with the exception that they serve 1/2 pound burgers (they are very tasty).

Another Irish pub is Hurleys (not very far from the McKibbins), on 1225 Crescent (corner St-Catherines). Its a bigger bar so if there is no place at McKibbins or you find it too stuffy, its always a good 2nd option.

There are also Microbrewery. These places (like the 3 Brasseurs) usually brew their own beer. These is Brutopia near crescent, the 3 Brasseurs on a few locations, L'Amer A Boire on St-Denis and La Brasserie du Cheval Blanc on ontario (I think).

If you are going to a microbrewery to taste new beers I would not recommend les 3 Brasseurs, because they offer pretty standard beers (Pale, Red... blah blah blah). The Brasserie du Cheval Blanc is a bit more stuffy and a bit "hippy" but they serve a wide variety of different brews that is sure to please wild spirits (I once saw chocolate beer... wow..).

For the nudies bar, trust me you've got choice. Quality is usually rumored to be found at Chez Paré (a legendary haunting place of visiting hockey players). Chez Paré is expensive and I found their girls to be pretty much in the same mold last time I went (and it was a long time ago, so it can be different).

If you want volume, you can go to the Super Sexe on St-Catherine. They can have 30+ girls on certain nights.

Other bar I've heard were ok were the Solid Gold and L'Axe.

Stay away from seedy places like "La Caleche du Sexe", unless you want a special "all you can touch" experience with Auntie Carole.
