Where to stay for a Montreal Bachelor Party?

So your planning a bachelor party in Montreal.  The first question that comes to mind is where to stay?  Should you rent an apartment? Should  you rent a loft?  Or simply book a hotel?

After hours of research and flipping though thousands of hotel photos you find yourself back at square one.

Lofts/Apartments for a Montreal Bachelor Party:

Montreal Bachelor Party Lofts

At first this seems like a great idea. However, lofts are generally located in residential areas, where Montreal’s top Strip Clubs,  and Nightclubs are nowhere to be found.  Transportation is another factor to consider. This past weekend I hosted a bachelor party that rented a loft that was able to accomidate the whole group (9 guys). The issue was that each time they traveled it cost them $120 (3 Cabs X $40). They ended up spending over $550 in cabs alone.

Hotels for a Montreal Bachelor Party:

Booking a hotel is the best option for bachelor parties. You don’t have to clean up after yourselves, and you more likely to meet “out-of-town-women” looking to hook up (trust me). There are 3 main variables to consider when choosing a hotel:


One of the most common mistakes bachelor parties make is spending too much for there hotel. Your hotel accomidations shouldn’t account for more than 30% of your budget. Hotel’s in Montreal also forget to mention that a 19% tax is added to the quoted rate upon check out (be prepared!)


Save money on cabs, and spend more on strippers and alcohol. Ideally a bachelor party wants to be located walking distance  or a short cab ride ($8-10) from all of Montreal’s hotspots.  Cabs smell horrible, and are know to overcharge tourists.

Need for a Suite:

Having a common area where all the guys could hang out is curial. It’s also more welcoming when you invite women back to your hotel.

The Montreal Bachelor Party: Who’s In Charge Of Paying For What?

A bachelor party  in Montreal costs money, but who’s in charge of paying for what? Is it the best man’s job to foot the bill, should the groom-to-be pitch in, and what is the responsibility of the other groomsmen?

One thing is for sure – more often than not, the man of the hour gets a free pass on most activities. Usually it’s the best man and his ushers who split the costs of the groom, and then they each pay their own way. However, here’s a handy hint – when you take advantage of Montreal Nitelife Tours’ group discounts, more often than not, the money you save is enough to cover the groom, so there’s really no extra money out of anyone’s pocket. Check out our handy TripBuilder for more info.

– Dinner: The groom-to-be’s meal should either be covered by his best man or by all of his groomsmen. Sometimes the easiest thing is to estimate what the evening will cost (our TripBuilder can do that for you too) and then collect a certain amount from guests ahead of time.

– Adult entertainment: We don’t care who pays for it, but the bachelor should most certainly not be paying for his lap dances. Drum up some funds for his amusement or, in a fun twist, you can have the groom “earn” money by making him do some ridiculous task and getting sympathetic onlookers to shell out some dough (look for a future article on some great suggestions to help the groom make money during his bachelor party).

– Drinks: Guys can take turns buying the guest of honour drinks and shots, or even rounds, but this is another area where the groom shouldn’t be reaching into his own pocket. Bottle service in Montreal is always more cost efficient, then purchasing individual drinks

– Activities: This is shaky territory – if the groom was the one who decided to spend an afternoon at the casino, then maybe the groomsmen can chip in to buy him some chips, but if he’s a hardcore gambler, then it shouldn’t really be anyone else’s responsibility to support his habit. He can pay for a few hands at the Black Jack table. For the more adventurous groups, options like formula one go karts, white water rafting, and paintball should be considered. Check here for a list of common Montreal bachelor party day time activities.

– Transportation: End the bachelor party right by getting the groom home in one piece – either foot the bill for a cab, or make sure there’s a designated driver who’s been chosen ahead of time to get him home safely.
