It was our last night in Montreal and I wanted to make sure we made the most of it. My friend really wanted to try House of Jazz. The menu consisted of potato skins, buffalo wings, jambalaya, and what you would normally expect from a chain restaurant in the US. Perhaps it was just the disappointment of being robbed of... More

My dad and I got a Livingsocial coupon and decided to take a chance on this place. I have lived in Montreal for five years, dine out regularly, and have had great experiences at other jazz bars (Upstairs Jazz, Modavie etc). When I use internet coupons, I almost always return if I've had a great time, but I won't be... More

It has been years since I came here. Maybe since it was called Biddles. The place has not changed much. Same wonderful decor, with plenty of chandeliers. Waiters and waitresses have great uniforms. Especially the waitresses. The music was spectacular, the live band was fantastic and lively. Played great tunes throughout the evening. Food, let's just say you don't come... More

I have no words to describe my meal. Horrible! The onion soup had no soup only wet bread and lots of cheese. To eat my jambalaya I needed help to distinguish between chicken, sausage and shrimp. I went back to my hotel and order room service. If you like jazz the music was ok.

I passed the House of Jazz on the way to work whilst temporarily working here in Montreal. Even from the outside the place looks tempting, and being ignorant of Jazz, I was intrigued to see if I'd like it. I visited the restaurant on a Thursday night, and it's worth pointing out straight away that there is a $10 cover... More

We are not big fans of jazz and enjoyed the show! It was cozy and people were awesome. We were younger than the average but we did not care. Food is good but it is only a plus to the ambiance and the music.

My husband and I went for lunch so there was no live jazz. The food was average, while I enjoyed my roast beef my husband didn't like his burger. The ambiance is kinda neat to see.

Our 9 day trip to Montreal was to include some type of music venue that might be Blues or Jazz or some type of live performance. Because of a chance sighting while touring on the Hop-On - Hop-Off bus we passed the wonderful establishment of HOUSE OF JAZZ - live music and unexpected great food. We went on a Wednesday... More

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighborhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
