    I'm visiting Montreal this weekend with a bunch of friends. We're staying at the new Sofitel and plan on hitting the nightlife and such. We're all Manhattanites, so we'll be dredging for the clubs, interesting lounges, good local food, and the like.

    Just wanted to know if anyone here had any good suggestions that we shouldn't miss.

    I would say that the first stop should be the casino. $5 Canadian Black Jack tables are always a great time. The only thing is that the drinks aren't free and you have to drink them at a bar, which is ok, since you don't want to be drunk and gambling in a foreign country. As for nightlife, Definately hit up St. Catherine street. Tons of strip clubs, and tons of bars. IF you want to get cheap beer and young girls, go to Peel Pub(http://www.peelpub.com/). I don't know the exact address, but ask any cabbie and he will let you know where to go. The food is really cheap and you get 150 oz. pitchers of Labatt Blue for $20 Canadian. If you want a more sophisticated group, check out the Whisky Cafe or the Sir Winston Chruchill Pub. For dancing and a more club atmosphere, check out Club Sona and Dome. Any of these should fulfill your needs, but you should definately check out the casino first, that way if you make money, you can blow it on the cheap canadian alcohol, and if you lose money, you can drink away your sorrows. Either eway, Montreal is a great party city.

    I second the casino for a visit. Very nice, new, multi-level facility with something for all.

    Cool. Thanks, guys. Looks like we're going to the Plateau Mont-Royal district Friday night and then the local places and strip clubs on Saturday. Should be fun, if not COLD.
