Montreal is known for being a city of romance and youthfulness. There always plenty of festivals, events and outdoor performances going on all year long. Montreal is also home to many renowned universities, both English and French that attracts students from all over Canada and the globe. Because the winters can feel long and a bit brutal, people are more likely to go to bars rather than outdoor events during the colder months. While the summer is hotter outside, the winter can be just heated in the local clubs with university students, professionals and others searching for a good time. FreeHookups.com is here to point in the right direction for your Montreal date hookup needs.
Montreal is one of Canada´s oldest and most sought after cities. It is known for having some of the best nightlife and unique culture in North America. Montreal has had an interesting and transformative history. Until the 1970´s, Montreal was the economic capital of Canada before it was surpassed by Toronto. The city used to have more of an English influence when it was younger so Montrealers are very resilient in keeping the traditional Quebecois culture and language alive.
Montreal has always been one of the hippest cities in Canada and has attracted people from all over because of its architecture, nightlife, culture and history. You should no problem finding a Montreal hookup and dating spot, however some areas of town are better than others at accommodating those who want to experience the unique nightlife and entertainment Montreal has. We have put together a list and brief descriptions of notable neighbourhoods that are worth exploring and facilitating dates in.
The Mile End is an area of Montreal just north of downtown and south of Parc Ex (Parc Extension). The Mile End is a very Anglophone neighbourhood and is home to many families. That being said, most people don´t go there for clubbing or anything of the like, but there are some live entertainment venues and makeshift dance spaces. Most of the bars and restaurants in the Mile End are quite modest and are best for lower maintenance and casual dates. There are some places where you can definitely meet singles (as are listed below), but due to its quite nature, it´s a better date night neighbourhood.
Now, for nightclubs, after hours venues and wild, unpredictable nights, Le Plateau Mont-Royal is your one-stop shop. There are three main party streets in Le Plateau Mont Royal, or The Plateau as most English speakers call it. Boulevard St-Laurent, Avenue du Mont Royal and Rue St. Denis. St. Laurent is a bit more upscale than the other two streets. The southern half is mostly clubs and restaurants and the northern (divided by Mont-Royal) is mostly boutiques, specialty stores, home décor and furniture shops and a few restaurants. St. Denis has all the commercial and retail chains minus the mall. South of Rue Sherbrook on St. Denis part of the gay village along with St. Catherine Est. Avenue du Mont-Royal is mostly for shops, but there are some very popular bars and restaurants sprinkled in.
Speaking of the gay village, St. Catherine Est has always been the heart of the Montreal gay scene. There are plenty of LGBT+ friendly establishments that typically see mixed patrons, male strip clubs, targeted, of course, towards gay men and gay bars and dance clubs. St. Catherine Est is a busy strip and is sure to please patrons of all backgrounds and orientations.
There´s a particular area west of Mile Ex and Little Italy (Just north of the Mile End), and East of Parc Ex. On Rue Beaubien in this gray area are some of the city´s best and hole in wall venues and quaint cafes. One of these quirky and fun venues is NDQ (mentioned with brief description below) a neighbourhood favourite. Brasserie Beaubien is another low-key venue that features live music and performances, pool and slot machines. If you happen to be cruising this neighbourhood, try the coffee shops or dip into one the bars mentioned above.
Montreal is a carefree city that loves to party. Locals shows, dance parties, after hours and various other late night events and festivities take place every night of the week. Though the work week officially ends Friday evening, the "weekend" for all intents and purposes, begins Thursday evening. Though Thursday through Saturday is typically when the larger nightclubs are most busy, many smaller venues and bars are still fairly busy earlier in the week. As for the time of year, the winter is when you are definitely more likely to meet people inside, especially at bars or clubs as opposed to outdoor events and terraces. Because the winter can feel long, many people will spend as much time outside as possible. Patios and terraces are usually where people feel more carefree and friendly, so it´s a great place to start a conversation.
