I Love Montreal: Data Sheet
My favorite discovery this year was Montreal. I only wish I had visited this city earlier in life, but better late than never, as they say. I have seen some threads discussing how amazing Montreal is, including enthusiastic praise from respected members of the forum, but I haven't seen a data sheet thread that offers a thorough breakdown from top to bottom. It is only right that as the New Year approaches us, that I pay homage to one of my favorite cities in the world and a place that changed my life this year (I went four different times in 2011). In fact, if it weren't for the harsh winters, I would probably live in Montreal. Summertime in this city for me is second to none. So, with that being said, here it goes!

Transportation

Public transportation within Montreal is actually pretty good. The subway system closes at 1am and opens at 5:30 am. The fare system is the most reasonable I've seen anywhere for a major western city. You can get a daily pass, weekend, or weekly pass for very reasonable prices and that give you unlimited rides on both the subways and the buses. The city is also centralized so you can get to all the major points using metro.

This pass even applies to the express bus that goes from downtown MTL to the airport and vice versa--which is normally $8. That's a very good deal.

Taxis are also very reasonably priced. These are a must in the late hours if you've got to get somewhere and don't want to wait on the bus.

Getting to and from the airport by bus from downtown takes anywhere from 20-45 minutes depending on traffic.

Flying into Montreal from a US city can be expensive, due to international fees and surcharges. Like other major Canadian cities, Montreal is within 100 miles of the US border. Every big Canadian city has a big American city counterpart on the other side of the border. For Vancouver, that city is Seattle; for Toronto, it is Buffalo; and for Montreal, it is Burlington, VT. It is significantly cheaper and more cost-effective, depending on your budget and time, to fly into the nearest big American city, and then bus/drive into Canada. Burlington, VT is like 2 hours from Montreal and has an international airport.

Amtrak offers train service along the Eastern Seaboard. I have friends who have done this, but it takes a long time. 11 hours from NYC and 14 hours from DC. However, you can get up and move around while the train is moving, and you can bring food and booze (the food sold on the train is pricey and limited in options).

One of the more increasingly popular options, however, is Craigslist rideshare. There are almost daily listings of rides going to and from NYC and Boston. Check out this link for an idea: http://newyork.craigslist.org/rid/

Because most rideshares involve a group of strangers, your personal cost is lower. Rides can be as cheap as $35-50 pp each way, and that includes gas. Some drivers offer round-trip discounts. Depending on the wait at the border, it could take 6 1/2 to 7 hours to get there from NYC, and probably 5+ from Boston. Lots of the vehicles on rideshare are vans and SUVs so the ride is generally comfy. I've actually met some really cool and interesting people this way.

Make sure that, if you do rideshare, the driver is an American or Canadian citizen. If not, your wait at the border could be much longer.

Lodging

Personally, I'm a private apartments kind of guy. I think for Montreal this is your best bet. I can't recommend a better site than http://www.airbnb.com. I went to Montreal four times in 2011, all during summer, and booked plush spots in different areas of the city each time. I recommend staying in Old Port, Mont Royal, Downtown, Saint-Laurent, or Westmount.

If you insist on a hotel, instead, check out Hotel Nelligan (which has a nice rooftop bar with a sick view), St. Paul Hotel, The W, or Hotel Place D'Armes. There's also Montreal Luxury Apartments on 400 W. Sherbrooke.

Nightlife

Now, this is for me what Montreal is all about. IMHO, it has the best nightlife in North America, and rivals among the best you may find around the rest of the world. There are so many spots, and this doesn't begin to capture it all, but I will try my best.

One thing worth noting, though, is that the drinking age in this part of Canada is 18. In certain bars in areas like St. Laurent and Crescent St, you will meet girls of this age that are cute but flaky when it comes to returning phone calls, etc. This has happened to me and my boys, even with chicks we've groped and made out with. When dealing with girls of this age group, aim for the ONS. If it doesn't happen, don't keep your hopes up. I even got to a point where I was not taking numbers.

Saint-Laurent

This is one of the most famous streets in all of Canada. There is a strip of bars and clubs on both sides of the street that seem to go on forever (between Sherbrooke and Pine streets). A Friday or Saturday night in the summer here will involve the most concentrated number of beautiful women you have probably ever seen in your life. St. Laurent is considered the anchor of the French nightlife in Montreal. Though most girls here are bilingual, you may often hear them speak English with a Quebecois French accent (which I find hot) or they just only speak French (which can be good or bad Wink. However, you will also meet many who speak English with little to no accent. Since there are so many women out on the street, you can decide where to go just by asking the hot ones where they are going or just observing where they are going. Play it by ear (bar/club hopping here is effortless). With that being said, there are still a couple of spots I want to specifically highlight.

Wood 35 - Upscale restaurant that turns into a dance club at night. I saw a bartender here one night that was honestly in my top 3 of the most beautiful women I have ever laid eyes on. The chicks in here are dressed to kill and smoking. I remember passing by this spot for the first time as it was emptying out and me and my boy being astounded by the staggering number of talent that was pouring onto the street. It's unreal.





Note: The bouncers here are kinda douchey, so make sure you get there before it gets packed and be sure to look the part.

Orchid Nightclub - This is the best upscale hip-hop nightclub in Montreal. Fridays are the best nights because there is an open bar for ladies.

Muzique - High end nightclub usually full of chicks. Here are some pics.





Ivy Nightclub - More hot chicks.

Tokyo Bar - Good spot for gaming younger (easier) chicks.

B-Side - Formerly known as Buddha Bar, this is an excellent bar to meet trendy and feminine local university chicks.

Crescent Street

This street HOLDS IT DOWN for English-speaking Montreal. Like St. Laurent, you will see some of the hottest women ever in this area. This is also where most Americans visiting Montreal tend to party (English-speaking, go figure). I've even met American chicks here who have visited MTL multiple times without ever having stepped foot in St. Laurent or the primarily French areas of the city *gasp* (way to rep stereotypes). You'll find a few American college students from Vermont and upstate New York, whom you will probably ignore with lightening speed. Though it is a small area compared to St. Laurent, what Crescent lacks in size it makes up for in potency. Crescent Street begins at the intersection with Sherbrooke and ends at Maisonnueve. It is easy to explore and is ideal for bar/club hopping. Here are some spots worth mentioning:

Light Ultraclub - Hip-Hop and House on two separate floors. The most well-known club on Crescent. This YouTube clip is sick!





Club Seven - Amazing chicks. Hip-Hop and House both Fridays and Saturdays. Dress to impress.

Newtown -Great lounge atmosphere and trendy decor. Hot chicks. Hip-Hop and House music.

Mt. Royal (Plateau)

This is another great scene in Montreal. It's more for those into the bar scene rather than dance clubs, with just a couple of exceptions.

Salon Doame - This is one exception: the primary dance club in the Mt. Royal area for those who like electro/house. The chicks in here run the gamut from Latin American, European, and French Canadian. I pulled a girl out of here and back to my apartment my first night in Montreal.

House Nightclub - The only massive upscale dance club in the Mt. Royal area. This is a glamorous type of spot full of gorgeous girls. You'll need to bring some cash and your A-game.

Bily Kun - This is an awesome bar near Salon Doame. GQ Magazine named it one of the top bars in the world for the beautiful crowds. It has a high reputation for quality. The decor and ambiance is just dope. It serves great beers, including a few famous Czech ones, and it's a place where you can find some seriously attractive chicks. This is my favorite bar for beer in Montreal.

Laika - Simply amazing bar and restaurant full of beautiful women and ideal for people watching. Great spot to game chicks.

Blizzarts - Great place for dance-themed nights from Dancehall to Dubstep.





Downtown

Cavali - This is a very glamorous high end club for those who want to see and be seen. This is where one should go to do it big. If money is no issue for the night and you feel like popping bottles, this is your spot.

Peel Pub - This is my favorite pub. It's the best place to watch a sporting event while in Montreal. They have amazing drink specials everyday (i.e. a 32. oz Rum and Coke for $10). Me and my boys went here to watch a UFC match and got a 160 oz. pitcher of Hoegaarden for just $40. You can also get a Stella or Becks pitcher (among others) for the same price.

L'Escalier - This is usually a bohemian live music kind of joint, but on Sundays, it's Latin night! Montreal is known as the Latin capital of the North, and spend any time there you'll see why. It's just a different way of life unfamiliar to the Anglo-Saxon world. The women are feminine, and the culture is French-derived (i.e. Latin). There are lots of girls from South America and the Caribbean in this city and they like to come out here to dance some salsa.

Le Saint Elizabeth Pub - Hidden gem that has one of the best terraces in Montreal. Cheap beers and young attractive crowd.

Altitude 737 - Club on the penthouse floor of the tallest building in Montreal. Amazing view, but you pay for it in the price of the drinks and food.

Circus Afterhours - Montreal's main after-hours (past 3am) partying spot with a faithful clientèle. The hip-hop room has a serious underground feel. This is one of the best places to pick up a lizard for the ONS.

Club La Boom - Montreal's downtown you-name-it spot. Whatever music you're into, they have it. There's a mild dress code in effect so don't dress down.

Old Port

This is my favorite area in Montreal. This is for the twenty-something crowd. I've gotten my most flags here. It's the old part of the city, full of cobblestone narrow streets and historic architecture. It's quite beautiful. There are more areas than just the following spots, but these merit special attention on your radar.

Santos - This is one of my favorite bars on the planet. It is just damn HOT. This is a place you can bring a date or find a local flag. The ratio here on a typical weekday evening is advantageous. I actually prefer that time over the post-11pm hour from Thurs-Sat when it opens up as a dance floor. You'll need to apply some indirect game because most of the women are in groups and sit at a table as opposed to a club. I took a girl I met at a dance club nearby here during our first meetup and then smashed at her place later. Sophisticated veteran playboys will appreciate this spot. It's got a much better ratio and consistent quality than anything you'd find in NYC.

The W Hotel Bar - A diverse crowd that dresses to impress. It's mostly for that hip-hop trendy set. It's worth a visit once.

L'Confessional - This is a reasonably upscale bar on McGill Street in Old Port. There's no cover and it's cool to check out for about an hour. This is the kind of place where you go in to swoop something decent and fast. It can get packed, but the crowd is well-dressed and you can find some nice chicks in here. I met a couple of sisters, both blonds that looked Polish, from Kelowna, BC. They went home with me and my boy that night. The bouncers here are mad cool.

Velvet Speakeasy - This is probably the best spot to really party in Old Port. It's even been mentioned in the NYT. The music is that hard electro stuff, but the women in here is some of the best you will find. The partying takes place downstairs in a cave-like space that looks like it's from the medieval era. The chicks here are very feminine and very European looking. I met a hot brunette here with green eyes and nice tits who I got to leave her friends to join me for a cigarette outside. She gave up the digits, we met at Santos a couple of days later, and the rest is history. Fellas, make sure you hit this spot when in Montreal.

Time Supper Club - Leading supper club in Montreal that attracts celebs from Akon to Tommy Lee to Christina Aguilera to Timbaland. It's best to make dinner reservations at 9:30pm and stay until they kick everyone out at 3am. Very close to Akon's Hitlab factory/bachelor pad.

Day Game/Shopping

St. Catherine Street (Downtown) - This is without a doubt the best place in Montreal to shop and apply day game. There are LOADS OF CHICKS going about their business here everyday during the summer. It's absolute madness. This street also hits two major universities--Concordia (the bigger and more prominent of the two English-speaking universities in Quebec) and McGill (the top university in Quebec and one of the best in Canada). There's malls, coffee shops, underground malls, bars, stores, and all kinds of places to find women ripe for day game. I recommend sticking the section of this street that's between Guy and St. Urbain streets (a very long stretch).

St. Denis - This is a very long street in the French side of town that has strictly pedestrian parts, which are expanded during the summer. There are many bars, restaurants, cafes, etc. that are full of chicks ripe for day game. I recommend sticking to the area between St. Catherine and Mont Royal streets (a very long stretch). Club Cactus is a Latin club you also want to check out.

Strip Clubs

Montreal is known for having some of the best strip clubs in all of North America. I didn't partake in this endeavor, but I've heard of a couple that I may check out during a trip I am sure to take at least once next summer.

Club Supersexe - Upscale strip joint on St. Catherine St. Known for having some of the hottest strippers.

Wanda's - Another upscale joint on De Maisonneuve and de la Montagne streets. I hear this is considered one of the best.

Solid Gold - This is on Saint Laurent and is said to be a "contact" place during bachelor parties. There are also rumors of things going down in the back rooms, but I can't confirm as I have not been.

Festivals

From May-September, Montreal comes alive with beautiful summer weather and constant festivals. There is always a festival going on during this time of year, sometimes several going on simultaneously.

Montreal International Jazz Festival - This is one event you simply can't afford to miss. It is the largest jazz festival in the world and draws more than 3,000 artists from over 30 countries. There's more than 650 concerts, including over 450 free outdoor concerts. More than 2.5 million people attend this event every year, a significant number of them being tourists. If you can't get laid during Jazz Fest, cut your dick off and call it a day.

The Montreal World Film Festival in August is also pretty cool for those who like indie flicks. Lots of free screenings, including those that take place outdoors, offering opportunities to game chicks.

Good Eats

Montreal is well-known for the quality of its food (of all price ranges). These are just a few suggestions of places to grub.

Jardin Nelson - This is one of the sexiest and exclusive restaurants I've ever dined at. It's got a discreet gated entrance with a courtyard garden obstructing the view from the outside looking in. Truly elegant and incredible food.

L'Assommoir - This is a fantastic upscale restaurant and bar. A chick I approached at a bar one night actually treated me to dinner here later that week. I can't vouch for it enough. There are a couple of locations in Montreal, but I went to the one in Notre-Dame in the Old Port neighborhood. Excellent dining experience.

Boustan - Great Lebanese food spot on Crescent St. ideal for post-partying 3am gorging.

Moishes - Said to be the best steakhouse in North America. Location in NYC too.

Sir Winston Churchill Pub - A staple on the Crescent Street scene. Worth a visit, not least to pay respect to the memory of the man for whom it is named after.

Rotisserie Romados - Best local spot for grilled chicken. Rave reviews on Yelp, and there's even YouTube clips showing how they get down. Portuguese-style french fries. Excellent.

Schwartz's - Legendary Jewish deli that's been around since 1928. Amazing smoked-meat sandwiches. Any famous person that stops through Montreal usually makes a visit here while in town. Several big money offers have been made to the owners here to license franchises across North America, to which they have always refused. IMHO, this place blows NYC's Katz Deli out of the water, and the prices here are significantly better. It's also open 24-hours.

La Banquise - For those who are unaware, poutine is a fast food dish that originated in Quebec. There is no better place to have this classic dish, in every variety (toppings) imaginable, than La Banquise. Lines are usually long, especially late at night (24-hour spot), as poutine is considered the classic comfort food after a night out drinking.

Juliette & Chocolat - This is a famous dessert and coffee spot that girls absolutely love. There are many opportunities for indirect game here, or it can be a place where you take a chick (depending on how you feel). There are locations on St. Denis and St. Laurent. You can find chicks in both places, but I think the hot chicks at the St. Laurent one are more consistent. There are usually short lines to get in during the evening.


Fairmount Bagel - Been around since 1919. Enough said.

Activities

The great thing about cities in Canada is that nature is always nearby.

St. Lawrence River - One of the funnest things I've ever done is swim in the St. Lawrence River while I was in Montreal. In the Verdun neighborhood, there's a bike path along the water and docks where people hang out in swim attire and then plunge into the river. The current is reasonably strong most of the time, so you shouldn't try it if you're not a decent swimmer, or don't venture too far out in the water. It's a great way to relax and, surprisingly, the river in Montreal is quite clean, especially for being in a major city.

Mont Royal - This is the mountain from which the name Montreal is derived from. It's an excellent place to get a view of the city, day or night. I recommend going on Sundays at 1pm for this weekly ritual called tamtams. There are drummers, dancers, vendors, and a drum circle. For all you weed smokers, this is a good place to find some and/or light up.

Montreal Casino - Right on the St. Lawrence River near Verdun.

Old Port of Montreal - This is worth exploring during the day. Start at St. Paul and walk through the various streets that lead to the port.

Other Neighborhoods

You might hear some stuff about the Mile End, which is an up-and-coming hipster/gentrifying neighborhood I would liken to Williamsburg or Park Slope in Brooklyn. It's neighborhoody and comfy, with some cool local bars, but it's usually dead during prime going out hours and it's not where the hot chicks are. It might be worth checking out if you've got extra time to kill and are curious about that side of Montreal.

Great shit man. You have been putting out some of the best info on here lately, IMO. Appreciate it. So cool when one data sheet can make a place I never even thought about jump so high up my list. Between 18 year olds being in clubs, and that YouTube video, I am sold lol.

Mixx

Absolutely. Most of my successes came late in the night. I've always had at least one friend with me when going out in MTL, and on one trip I rolled with a racially mixed group of fellas (they wanted to see what the hype was about). That social proof helped IMO. Also, drinking was always involved with the chicks I ended up slaying. I just made cold approaches and played it cool. I think being an American on vacation is a plus with the local chicks. I also think the more sexual and feminine nature of the women in MTL, in sharp contrast with TO, compliments my style. I always try to project masculinity. MTL is entirely different from English-speaking Canada. It's crazy. It's not a city mainly full of beta males either, like TO is (no offense to anyone from there). I think the girls are just ripe for getting approached.

Nonetheless, I did experience a fair number of flakes, surprisingly. It was trial and error. I was surprised because there were a couple of instances where I was all but certain I would get a flag with some chicks that gave me their number, only for them to go AWOL or just make up some bullshit. Many of these girls were younger. It made me tailor my game to aim for the ONS, which was easier to get late in the night after a few drinks were recycled in the system. I also made sure to stay in apartments very close to the major nightlife areas. This was crucial.

With that being said, there was one chick I followed up with on a return trip who gave it up, and another who was like 27 who met up with me two days after I got her number, who I took back to her spot. But many of the chicks who gave me their digits ended up flaking.

Thanks man. I really believe this is one of the most underrated cities in the world.

Yeah. The majority of them speak French at home, but can speak both English and French.

RE: I Love Montreal: Data Sheet
HCasanova - another great post amigo and you are representing hard lately. Shit I even live in Canada and learnt alot from your post. Last time I was there I was in a bar and two chicks bought my buddy and I a drink, the women are on a different level there. If you cannot afford to go to Europe, then Montreal is the closest thing in North America to a European city.

Now as of Toronto men being beta, I have to argue that point a little. lol Bitches are real tough here, they honestly think there shit don't stink. Alpha moves tend to scare these girls, who ultimately want to be in control of there men.
American guys do well here because alot of girls are looking to escape to America, I must say alot of American guys spit some game I wouldn't necessarily spit. Also a Tdot girl would easily sleep with a foreigner because her reputation stays in tact.
Fcuk the amount of stories i have heard of easy Canadian girls overseas is ridiculous.

Excellent post on my absolute FAVORITE Canadian city, +1 from me big time, you really nailed it. I will soon be busting out a sheet on Quebec outside of Montreal and Quebecois history/culture.

Merci!

I couldn't agree more. I also think MTL in the summertime can go head to head with the best of any European city.

RE: I Love Montreal: Data Sheet
Hey Hencredible Casanova, how much POUTINE did you eat??/

Did you make it up to Quebec City? If not, make a point to do so on your next trip, you won't regret it, trust me!!!

Some other BIG parties include: the Just For Laughs comedy festival, F1 indy races, Les Francofolies and of course the national party every June 24th, Ste Jean Baptiste day!

One thing I must add about the people of Montreal, I"m sure you'll agree, they are VERY cool and hip people, have great style and take great pride in their appearance. Especially if you're going to hit up Cresent and the posh St Laurent clubs and bars, DRESS TO IMPRESS!!!

Generally, the Quebecois people tend to think of people of Anglo-saxon decent (les maudits anglais, or the damned English!) as a bunch of uptight square heads (thats how they refer to an English speaker, a tete carree) who work way too much and don't know how to loosen up and have a good time! They make fun of us English Canadians a lot and to them, you're basically a nerd until you can prove other wise!

Canadians: if you're from Ontario, especially Toronto, lie and say you're from elsewhere, BC is probably the best, Quebecors love BC and HATE Toronto (I wonder why? lol)

Americans: If you're from some boring state like oh, I don't know, lets say South Dakota or Iowa (no offence guys from there!),, lie and say you're from somewhere cool in California, NYC or the best place to say you're from, Florida, preferably with a condo in the south Florida area (as Mixx will soon find out, ultimate DHV)

Anyway, once again, great info dude, thanks for posting this!

PS: If you love horny Quebecois (aren't they all?) women on vacation, best places to hunt for them in USA (oh ya DON'T call them French Canadians, more on this later): South Florida beaches in winter, Florida NHL games when the Montreal Canadiens are playing, and this absolute gem: SUMMER TIME AT OLD ORCHARD BEACH MAINE, check this link out:

It's really tough to compare a Northern city like Montreal with Brazilian cities for so many reasons. The cultures and way of life are so different. I would just say I have never been to a place (ever) with the intense concentration of hot chicks that I saw in Montreal. St. Laurent on a Friday or Saturday night is utterly ridiculous. You may find similarly hot women in other countries and cities, for sure, but Montreal is amazing for its level of quality and consistency compared to most other places.

As for attitude, there's a big difference between the women of Montreal and those from Brazil. Though both are feminine, MTL women are more independent (if that makes sense). In fact, the feminism movement in Quebec during the 1970s is said to be only second to Scandinavia in terms of impact. Quebec (province) is said to be one of the most advanced places for women in terms of equality and independence. With that being said, women in Montreal are very open to approaches, but unlike Brazil, they are more proactive in letting you know if they want you. They will volunteer their number and even initiate contact in some instances. They will also buy drinks for you or at least themselves and treat you to dinner.

Another thing I love about Montreal is how affordable it is for such a large city. It's the 7th largest city in North America but is substantially cheaper than cities like Toronto, New York, Rio, SP, and Miami.

I didn't really experience cockblocking except for one time and it was from a guy who was friends with a girl I hooked up with. Me and her had went barhopping and he saw us at a couple of the spots we were at. I thought he was cool since he bought us and some of his friends a round of drinks. But at the next spot, he whispered in the girl's ear that he felt sorry for her after he saw she bought me a drink. He was just a lame hater. Me and her had taken turns buying rounds (remember what I said about women there being independent), and he didn't see that I had bought her a drink earlier. The funny thing was, she confided to me how lame he was in spite of the fact he was her friend! She said he would call her brokenhearted sometimes about how girls he would go on dates with would use him for money or ignore him after he bought them drinks and food. Sounds like a frustrated beta to me. No worries, though. He didn't get in my way. Mission accomplished with that chick!

RE: I Love Montreal: Data Sheet
HC, you hit it out of the park on this one. I'd give you another rep point, but you already got too damn many for a guy that's new here! Lol.

So you said you've been there 4 times. How long were your stays? Were you there just over a weekend or where these extended stays? Obviously how long you can stay will effect your results, unless you've absolutely mastered SNLs. For a first-timer going there, what would be your recommended stay length both to experience what the city has to offer and perhaps grab a flag or two?

And I take it the place is pretty much off-limits during the winter, right? Unless you have extremely high tolerance for cold.

Did you make it up to Quebec City? If not, make a point to do so on your next trip, you won't regret it, trust me!!!

Some other BIG parties include: the Just For Laughs comedy festival, F1 indy races, Les Francofolies and of course the national party every June 24th, Ste Jean Baptiste day!

One thing I must add about the people of Montreal, I"m sure you'll agree, they are VERY cool and hip people, have great style and take great pride in their appearance. Especially if you're going to hit up Cresent and the posh St Laurent clubs and bars, DRESS TO IMPRESS!!!

Generally, the Quebecois people tend to think of people of Anglo-saxon decent (les maudits anglais, or the damned English!) as a bunch of uptight square heads (thats how they refer to an English speaker, a tete carree) who work way too much and don't know how to loosen up and have a good time! They make fun of us English Canadians a lot and to them, you're basically a nerd until you can prove other wise!

Canadians: if you're from Ontario, especially Toronto, lie and say you're from elsewhere, BC is probably the best, Quebecors love BC and HATE Toronto (I wonder why? lol)

Americans: If you're from some boring state like oh, I don't know, lets say South Dakota or Iowa (no offence guys from there!),, lie and say you're from somewhere cool in California, NYC or the best place to say you're from, Florida, preferably with a condo in the south Florida area (as Mixx will soon find out, ultimate DHV)

Anyway, once again, great info dude, thanks for posting this!

PS: If you love horny Quebecois (aren't they all?) women on vacation, best places to hunt for them in USA (oh ya DON'T call them French Canadians, more on this later): South Florida beaches in winter, Florida NHL games when the Montreal Canadiens are playing, and this absolute gem: SUMMER TIME AT OLD ORCHARD BEACH MAINE, check this link out:

http://www.boston.com/news/local/article...?page=full

Thanks for this post dude. I LOVE poutine! It's not the healthiest food in the world, but few things are more tasty after a night of getting shitfaced.

You are totally right about how trendy people in Montreal are. Both guys and chicks have a unique and sophisticated sense of style. It really reminded me of Paris in that sense. For guys who love to dress the part, you will be pleased with what Montreal has to offer.

I didn't make it to Quebec City, though I wanted to. It was just that we could never find ourselves able to leave MTL. I hear English is far less spoken in Quebec City and that if you don't know at least some French, you'll have a hard time with locals. I've also been told that it's really a place where you spend no more than two days. With that being said, Quebec City is considered the most European city in North America.

I'm looking forward to your data sheet on the rest of Quebec. Thanks for the info so far.

And I take it the place is pretty much off-limits during the winter, right? Unless you have extremely high tolerance for cold.

The length of my stays varied. The longest stay was 2 weeks, one for five days, and the others were long weekends (3-4 days).

I would say make your first visit happen during Jazz Fest. That's just a very lively and magical time to be in that city and there will be stuff going on every day of the week as opposed to just mainly Thurs-Sat.

Keep in mind that a visit to Montreal requires LOADS OF ENERGY. You will be doing a lot of walking up and down the major streets, possibly drinking, partying, and transporting to different areas, so you will need energy to make approaches on top of that, and then finally capturing a flag. This will make you extremely tired during the course of your trip, so do whatever it is you do to keep your energy levels up.

As for winter, I'd say the city is pretty much off-limits. Montreal in the winter time is one of the coldest cities in the world, and it gets lots of snow. The winters are quite long as well, which is the reason why Montreal has an underground city with tunnels that are over 20 miles long where many people commute, shop, work, and eat in what is the largest underground complex in the world.

An exception to that is the time between Christmas and New Year's (i.e. now.) All the college/university students are finished their exams and its crazy parties all week. It can be cold as balls but the streets of the major nightlife areas will still be packed with people all night. Mid-February, not so great.

I can't have sex with your personality, and I can't put my penis in your college degree, and I can't shove my fist in your childhood dreams, so why are you sharing all this information with me?

RE: I Love Montreal: Data Sheet
This thread brought back some some really good memories, I can't' count how many times my buddies and I all piled into cars and made the 12 hour road trip from Halifax to Montreal just for a good buzz on, they're legendary in that city.

Fucking Peel Pub, I've never seen so much vomit and passed out kids in my life! First time I went there in June 2001, there was a big queue outside, the bouncers would just drag the kids that were waaay to drunk up those concrete steps and toss them outside, only to be replaced by the next piss tank!

All the bars you mentioned are great but they are the more upscale, posh types. I"ll go to them once in awhile (I tend to stay away from Cresent Street, too many English speaking people from other provinces and the States, when I"m in Montreal, I party with the Quebecois, much more fun!)

Montreal isn`t just posh clubs, it also has a huge punk rock and metal scene!!!! If thats you thing, you HAVE TO check out the bar on Ste Catherines called `Foufounes Electriques` which is French for `Electic butt cheeks`, it gets pretty wild there, especially if there`s a live show, Huge mosh pits! Last time I wnet in 2007, you paid $5 to go up stairs and then it was $1 for a bottle of Molson ex!

My absolute favorite pub is called St Sulpice, its on St Denis, looks fairly modest from the street but once you go in, you`ll see theres a big terrace out back, it gets packed in the summer!!

I say it all the time, especially to my fellow Canadians, spend at least one week of your life in Montreal before you die (preferably in the summer), you won`t regret it!!!

So, then, girls do not really bang from daytime encounters? Just late at night after clubs start to close down?

How many daytime encounters led to successful bangs?

But what if drinking beer or wine is NOT your thing, or heavy metal. Let's suppose all you want to do is fuck 24/7, and not have a single oz of beer or alcohol, do you still recommend Montreal for sex and sex only (win non-pros) only? Again, NOT hookers or paid escorts. normal girls only.

It's really tough to compare a Northern city like Montreal with Brazilian cities for so many reasons. The cultures and way of life are so different.

Funny,that Askmen survey on cities with most beautiful women has Copenhagen at number 4!

I wonder what Roosh has to to say about that,was he visiting the wrong parts of town?

Mixx

I wouldn't say that because my emphasis is night game as it compliments my physicality and it's just my natural preference. I put way more effort into night game and I make sure I stay out as late as possible (even beyond 4am) to make sure I didn't miss nothing. If I'm going to go home without a flag, I have to feel I really gave it my all. Roosh talks about this with respect to Iceland (e.g. the 4-6am magical hour). This is true for MTL as well. Because there are so many areas in MTL that go off on weekends, you may suffer from a phenomenon known as "Fear of Missing Out" (FOMO). You could be on Crescent Street past 1am (after metro closes), and wonder what might be on St. Laurent which also has many hot chicks. I once was out so late and suffered from FOMO so bad, that I walked from Crescent St. all the way to St. Laurent (there were no taxis out for some reason). My boys thought I was crazy and just went back to the apartment.

I do practice day game because it helps my verbal and inner game and allows me to learn more about the local chicks and the city itself. I use those encounters to initiate a later meetup and I was successful in a couple of cases (one was just getting head). There was one Moroccan chick I approached in the day time, went out with, but didn't bang until my next return to MTL. That being said, I was going so hard in MTL at night that I used the daytime to recover most of the time. Also, a lot of the chicks in the daytime in MTL are younger (students, not working chicks), and have a tendency to be more flaky. I had no problem getting numbers, but beyond that, I endured a lot of disappointment (no return calls/texts, no shows, etc).

There are women all over MTL, day and night, but in my experience, nighttime is when you'll usually get the glory.

One method I'm not familiar with regarding Montreal is pipelining online. Does anyone have any experience with that?
