Modern home of the Montreal Canadians but we saw Leonard Cohen in concert here and he was magnificent. The views from our average seats were OK - just a long way from the stage.

I went for the concert by Neil Young "Crazy Horse". The sound quality was good. You should pick up a seat in the bottom few rows. I got a seat on AA row. You can not see the faces. You need binoculars. You have to see as if you are viewing into a well. The leg room is insufficient. Even... More

Mainstream concert hall, most of todays majour tours take place here when they come to Montréal! The quality of the show really depends on the act, but the Disney on ice are usually very good! :)

Unlike the old Montreal Forum, the Bell Centre seating is not intimate, so bring binoculars for hockey or concerts. Lack of legroom at seats will leave you with sore knees.

What the hell double standard, so I went to UFC 154 and security told me that I was only allowed to take photos with my cell phone and not my compact camera. There was a girl beside me using a camera and others in the stadium. The bathrooms are far away from my seat and the place is a pain... More

My friends and I were at the Bell Centre to watch UFC 154. Our seats were along the 'blue line' 3 rows up from the floor (Section 112). I was extremely pleased with the sight lines as our view was unobstructed by camera men, the people seated in front of us, and the octagon cage's supporting structure. The ushers were... More

I have been to so many events at the Bell centre from hockey games, Disney on ice to concerts. Do not park inside the stadium or you will be stuck under ground for hours when everyone tries to come out at the same time. Theres parking across the street for 5$ cheaper and at least you can leave properly. Stadium... 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.
