After visiting Centre Bell, and reading about the history of the Canadiens, we decided to drive by the original stadium of the team. To our disappointment, the building has been repurposed without visible indication of its prior life, from the outside. We could not find a heritage plaque or something similar to talk about the importance this building has to... More

I am an unapologetic life long Habs fan. I have been meaning to do this visit for quite some time. A colleague of mine took me for the tour prior to supper. I was escorted to centre ice where I stood in the presence of The Rocket and a fan sitting in the original Forum bench seats. I am not... More

We went to the Comedy Nest for our anniversary and had the best Saturday evening. Two out of three of the comedians were hysterically funny, the other guy wasn't my type of humor. I recommend ordering the Bloody Caesars extra spicy if you enjoy a spicy drink.They surprised us with VIP seating and free popcorn. We wished we lived in... More

While in montreal I had to visit the temple of NHL hockey - the Montreal Forum. They have done a great job converting it to alternative use whilst maintaing a sense of the building's history. Best of all - it is free to enter and look about. I was there to attend a stand-up comedy show at The Comedy Nest... More

It was great to walk around the huge Montreal Forum as it is converted into many theatres and lots of quiet seating areas with framed prints of hockey and fun statues and areas for the whole family to enjoy.

For any hockey fan this is worth taking a half hour out of your day to go see. They have original seats all over the center and still have a replica of where center ice was. There is a movie theater and a bar/bowling alley on the fourth floor. If you're in town during hockey season, stop by and go... More

This is a very decent cineplex now, with movies being shown in English. It also has entertainment, cafes, shops. But above all they have kept certain reminders about the times when this was the legendary hockey stadium. I walked around and looked at all posters, photos, etc.

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

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.
