The Bell Centre is home to the famous hockey team Les Canadiens de Montreal. It is also the premier concert venue for any big name act passing through Montreal. Good seating, average prices and food which is a cut above stadium fare.

We had tickets for a Habs game and enjoyed our evening. But similar to our last visit, we made the mistake of grabbing a few hotdogs and sandwiches at the game. The food was awful. Seriously. Cold, tasteless and huge long lines. Have fun but...More

Excellent! Very entertaining! Go see it! You'll be glad you did! A piece of advice - take a cab or an Uber as parking is very scarce.

Excellent staff, easy to get in and out. Plenty to see and do nearby before the show. Lots of hotels within walking distance. A really good concert venue. Hockey not so much, after all the Canadiens play there !!

I don't believe so. We attended a game, so for that no. I checked out their website before travelling and I think I read that they do not offer coat check. But it may vary with other events.
