From wild to sophisticated, Montreal is a popular destination for bachelor parties of all kinds. For a range of different interests and budgets, here are some ideas to get your party plans started.

Food Tours

The food scene in Montreal has evolved over the years, making the city a top gastronomic destination in Canada. You’ll find no end of world-class bistros to choose from if fine dining is your inclination—and a good number of the city’s restaurants are also BYOB, which means that you can keep the drinks flowing at your desired expense. You can also choose from a variety of Montreal food tours that reflect the preferences of your group, including bike and bites tours for the active bunch, tours of the best eats in Old Montreal, and more.

Craft Beer Tours

Montreal, and the province of Quebec more generally, has become a hub for microbreweries and beer culture that you’ll want to experience with your group. For a thorough exploration, try a craft brewery and beer tasting tour—and you won’t have to rely on just Molson Canadian to keep your party going.

Concerts

If you plan to have your bachelor party during the summer, you’ll be sure to overlap with one of the many festivals and events that the city holds during the joyous warmer months. And there’s always Picnic Électronik, a weekly electronic music show hosting world-famous DJs that takes place on Jean Drapeau, Montreal’s party island. This event makes for a great Sunday afternoon activity that can be as wild or as laid-back as you want it to be. You can hang back and relax while lounging on the grassy slope that overlooks the stage, or you can get right into the thick of the party on the platform right in front.

Outdoor Adventures

Even if you don’t plan to leave the urban center, you can still have some fun and memorable adventures with your buddies. Try an adrenaline-pumping zip-line tour, for example, or even a helicopter tour for a wide-angle view of Montreal.

Take Aim… Fire!

Another popular bachelor party activity in Montreal involves heading to Tir du Soleil, which is the only sport and recreational air-gun range in Montreal. Here you can fire real guns, from rifles and revolvers to combat pistols and even semi-automatic weapons, at either moving or stationary targets. You can pick the shooting experience that suits you best, with costs ranging from $15–40 per hour. Alternatively, your group could try axe throwing at Rage Montreal, an indoor range that offers different axe types and tips (and safety instructions!) from professionals.

Real-Life Strategy Games

For an immersive group activity that involves team strategizing, try an escape room adventure in the city. For example, A/Maze Montréal and Escaparium each offer distinct experiences: the former creates scenarios of three survival and problem-solving challenges (Prison Break, Mad Scientists, and Lost Temple stories), while the latter leans toward logic and strategy games. Heading outdoors, there are also outdoor scavenger hunts in Old Montreal offered by Guidatour.

Clubs

Of course, one of the primary reasons why Montreal is a popular bachelor party destination is due to its clubs—both nightclubs and strip clubs, which you’ll mainly find downtown. One hot spot is Stereo, a stylish nightclub that’s been operating since 1998 and has a renowned after-hours scene. House music and techno are the main repertoires, and you’ll likely find yourself partying through the night—and into the morning after.
