The Forum is very near to our hotel, now a multiplex cinema and indoor shopping centre, it's glory days were from the original build in 1924 until 1996, the period it was the main Ice Hockey Arena in the City. Whilst it was updated on various occasions, eventually the Hockey moved to a new purpose built Arena. Now the building... More

It was great to go and visit the old Church of Hockey. We stopped at the forum to go bowling on a school trip. They have preserved the forum very nicely. Lots of little nods to the history of hockey. They even have a section of the old seats to show what it was like to watch hockey here. Bowling... More

The Montreal Forum hosted NHL games from the 1920s until the 1990s. It is now a commercial complex with cinemas, restaurants and other shops. The central area has a section commemorating the innumerable hockey moments with some of the original seats and centre ice markings. Outside there is a mini walk of fame with names of famous Canadians and Canadiens... More

the Pepsi forum was cool enough for me to write this review. Upstairs is a photo gallery of the teams in a very large room, with the old hockey rink as a floor still intact, the 2nd floor has an eating area that you can enjoy a meal there or what ever the case may be. Make sure to check... More

If you are a hockey fan, it is worth checking out the old Pepsi Forum. If you go upstairs you can see photos of the teams. In the enormous main room, you'll notice that the floor is actually still the hockey rink floor, and right at center ice there are authentic seats extending up to the second floor, where people...

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.
