Depends where you are and how far you want to walk/take a cab. Champs on St. Laurent is always a good spot imo. They've got huge TV's, good food, good atmosphere. The prices in general aren't bad either, (good nightly specials etc...) I like Mckibbin's Irish Pub too, although I haven't been there too often. That one is on Bishop.

All along St.Laurent there are a bunch of Bars, but a lot of drunk students too. So watch out.

If you're over 15, anywhere but the Peel Pub
Seriously my vote goes to Champs.

Well, I'm just a 20 year old guy who likes to have a good time.. I'll be coming up with 3 other 20 year olds.. I'm just looking to be with die hard knowledgeable habs fans.... I'll keep your suggestions in mind.. Thank you.. and I'd like to thank anyone else who can help me out in advance..



Take care guys...

Hmmm why is it that people in Montreal aren't fans of the Peel pub?

Everytime I go to Mtl, I always make a stop there and have a blast.

To me, the Peel Pub is the place you go to drink recycled beer when you're underage. The food is terrible as well, the only people I see eat there are homeless folks who order the 2$ spaghetti.

Bell Centre haha

I'm not from Montreal but I went to the Peel Pub a couple times. It was pretty good. Quite a few screens and everything is dirt cheap. Not the highest class place to go but if you want real cheap beer and real cheap food, that might interest you. It was on St-Catherines (but I think the building caught on fire some time so I dont knwo if it's even still there)

Is Cage Aux Sports any good if you're not looking to drink?

They dont even put sound to the games except when it's something special

When the habs score, 95% of the people there dont give a crap.

Cage aux Sport is definitely the better choice.

When I went it was for a World Cup game and the other time was a playoff game so they had the sound on and everyone was there to watch the game. (I guess that's why i thought it was a good place to watch the game.)

Ya Cage aux Sports is probably one of the best places to watch a game (in Hull anyways).

Yeah, the Cage is ok. The food is, in my opinion, no better than average, and it sort has that family feel to it on occasion, but the screens are all over, and the draft beer isn't terribly overpriced. I've been to Champs only two or three times, but I would agree that it is the better choice (although the tables can fill up pretty quickly, so you might want to show up a little early).

Take care guys...
If you're looking for knowledgeable fans, Champs is a great place imo. It's a great bar, there are people of all ages and you'll find people who care and who know about the game. And yeah if you're 20 and going to be with other guys St. Laurent should be great on a Saturday night.

Saturday i'll actually be at the bruins game... i think its a noon start... The caps game is on that thursday I'm coming up.... I'm guessing a thurday night on St. Laurent isn't so bad either...




I was wondering.. How is the city on a sunday? I know around here everything shuts right down.. Is it the same in MONTREAL

i like going to sharx, cuz it's on ste-cath and near Concordia metro. and at times, the waitresses are really hot.

Depends what time of the year you come. i mean stores are open till 5, museums too etc. what are you looking into doing?
