Where do Bruins fans stay in Montreal

Heading to my first Bruins game in Montreal, wondering where Bruins fans stay and any good places to eat and drink.

Usually they go to Carey Price and Max Pacioretty's houses and kick them out for a few days, let them back in when they are done using them.

I can't say where bruins fans go in montreal, no idea. Massively outnumbered obviously. Just be a good sport and hopefully no one's a dick towards you.

For a good sports bar on Cresent Street montreal I go to MVP Sports. Its new and the TV and sound is great. Cresent is also a great street to party on. You can also go to the corner of St Laurent and Prince Arthur for another great night life section, this is where all the Mcgill students hang out. For a place to stay, I would reccomend anything on Sherbrooke street

I don't think you'll have any issue with their fans. I was sporting a B's jersey as I walked out from the game Chara injured Paccioretty and no one did anything but sort of joke with me.
St. Laurent has a lott of decent bars, as does Rue Crescent.

There are lots of Bruins fans in Montreal, isn't Peel Pub the official Bruins bar?

We're fairly tame. I would prob wish a bruins/leafs or wtv fan good luck, just a game.

Good morning #Montreal Don't forget to come cheer your #HABS tonight! #GOHABSGO


Maybe it's where bruins fans go but they got #habs tags everywhere.

All i meant to say was that it's hard to find a pure bruins bar or wtv obviously. Too many habs fans.

I stayed at the Best Western Downtown Europa, basically on St Catherine and a few minutes of hoofing it gets you to the game. There was a parking garage directly across the street and beside the hotel as well. I think for the weekend I paid under 150 for a Saturday night stay and my car was left in the lot for Saturday and most of Sunday.

You can eat or drink anywhere, if you're going with a date I would check out Cafe Presto. Otherwise, go nuts.

If you want to stay close to the Bell Centre, try the Novotel on Rue de la Montagne. A little pricey, however a stone's throw from the arena, and right across the street from Ye Old Orchard Pub. I was there for my sister in law's wedding last fall and the Toronto Raptors were staying there as well for an exhibition game. Maybe the Bruins book the same hotel

Montreal Marriott Chateau Champlain.

When I stayed there a few years ago you could access the Bell Centre without going outside.

This is where we are staying when we go in April, got a rate of $155/night. Haven't been to a game up there in about 8 years, so looking forward to it. I had my bachelor party there 11 years ago and WOW, it was awesome.

it's been a few years, so my geography might be screwed up but there's a Holiday Inn (on Sherbrooke) which is close to St. Catherines St and the Bell Centre (totally walkable).

If you just need a clean, safe place to stay a Holiday Inn is fine. I stay in a ton of hotels throughout the year for business and am usually at Hampton Inns, Holiday Inns and Best Westerns. You know you're going to get a decent room that's clean, with breakfast and usually an affordable price.

Long ago...(60's & 70's) the Peel Pub was a seedy tavern that was known as Montreal's only "gay" spot. Long before the Gay Village, this place was a dive populated by a few old men who would wait for some young stranger to mistakenly walk into the place. It was old vulture central. Think Mr. Herbert from Family Guy.
I guess it was in the 80's when they revamped the place and it became a college pub that had a few bands. They hired these asshat bouncers who would take the beers off your table at exactly midnight and tell you to get the f out.
I remember Jerry from Jerry Jerry & Sons of Rhythm Orchestra would take pitchers of beer off customers tables mid-song and bring them back up on the stage for him and the band...lol.
I never liked the place. It had a bad location, a sad past, and a ****** attitude towards customers.
There's lots of more deserving and better pubs around the area. Lower Crescent (below St. Catherines) used to have some nicer pubs (Brutopia, Hurleys).

I've stayed at the Chateau Champlain for road trips.

It is also the hotel that the team uses.

Yeah and I also heard Peel Pub got caught recycling beer and french fries when people didn't finish them. They don't do this now but its happened before.

MVP is new and is a great environment on Cresent. I also like Champs on St Laurent.
