I'm not sure if this is the best place to ask but I'll give it a shot... Does anyone have any opinions on Le St-Martin Hôtel Particulier near the Bell? I'm finally heading to Montreal for the Bruins game in November and am kind of guessing where I should stay. Also do you think it's worth staying near the Bell if we're going to the game? Everyone going is 24/25 so we'll also be looking for some fun bars and things to do during the day and I have no idea what else is around that area. I've been to Montreal a few times but have never spent any time near the Bell and figure taking some advice couldn't hurt..

Lastly my gf is from Wales and has never been to Montreal, so if you were only there for three days what would you do first?

Crescent street and Ste-Catherine is where you want to hang out especially being Anglo. It happens to be 2-3 minutes walk from the Bell Centre since its located in the heart of downtown. It's even better located or relative to MGS in terms of where the action is at in a city (Mtl being much smaller than Manhattan though).

But be sure to check the latin quarter too (St-Denis boulevard between Sherbrooke/Ste-Catherine), St-Laurent boulevard (between Ste-Catherine/Mont-Royal) and also the plateau Mont-Royal street (between St-Laurent/Papineau) for more hang outs spots. These are more francophone than anglophone but every waiter/waitress and the vast majority 80% at least of the people will be bilingual.

Here's some suggestions:

Mad Hatter: Crescent/Ste-Catherines
http://madhatterpub.ca/

Abreuvoir: St-Denis/Ontario - My favorite (best all year long terrace in town )
http://www.abreuvoir.ca/contact/

Barraca: Mont-Royal/Christophe-Colomb - If you go there on a Saturday/Sunday night say hi to Adam Casey for me.
http://barraca.ca/nous-joindres/

Ste-Elizabeth: Ste-Catherines/Ste-Elizabeth - Easy to miss since it's almost in the back alley, perhaps the best bar interior/exterior bar... ever, maybe worldwide.

Awesome thank you so much! That would have been days of searching to find half of that. I've always had a good time in Montreal and I've been trying to go to a game for a few years and nothing ever worked out until now.

Any sports happenings that weekend around the city?
In the QMJHL Blainville-Boisbriand the closest, followed by Drummondville. Plenty of Midget AAA teams in the GMA, fast, exciting elite hockey. Schedule - started this weekend and locations.

Interesting........they must be able to make some good money at it, as it seems like it's the exact same crew of guys, year in year out...

18 tickets on 3 different credit cards and multiple addresses. Done by 12:35.

This isn't the quickest I've ever gotten in, but it's by far the quickest I've gotten in multiple orders.

Makes me wonder if a lot of folks weren't aware of the Club1909 process or something.

Amped!

Coming up for Isles / Habs Nov 22 -- Staying Friday through Tues.

Couldn't decide on one hotel, so staying uptown Friday and Sat -- then coming downtown and staying near arena (Le Crystal) for the second half of the trip and the game. Will try and do a tour of the Bell Centre while I'm here too. Ill be the respectful old school Isles fan, most likely soaking in the entire experience. Got my ticket already.

I know there all all sorts of great places to visit -- but do any locals have favorite live music spots? Blues/jazz type stuff?

Thanks all!

Wow I was literally about to post this but I refreshed the page and you'd already found it.

Bistro a Jojo is an awesome place for blues, shows are every night and there are some in the day during the week end.

Hey guys,

Ill be in Montreal this week. Would like to see them on Thursday against the Rags. I don't know how the ticket prices go prior to the game. Do they go down before the game starts in Stubhub? Do they sellout? Can I buy tickets in the box office? What are your thoughts and suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Ticket prices will stay the same, if you don't buy them in advance you might get sold out and you'll have to rely on scalpers and have to pay more.

You can try Brutopia. It's a 3-minute walk from the Crystal.

Why don't you try the Ticket Vault? If you are willing to be patient you can get prices to come down close to face value come game night.

Old port and Griffin town is a must.

About what time should I get to the La Cage Aux Sports in the Bell Center for dinner/drinks before a Saturday night game?

The last few times I tried to go there, it was an eleventy-billion person long line, and I had to hit up the one on Rene-Levesque instead. Which is fine and all, great place, but the atmosphere of the arena location is better.
