This place is easy to get into and out of despite the volume of people attending. Lots of local restaurants offer many choices of restaurants around. Seats are VERY close together with minimal legroom (and I'm 5'3").

The Bell Centre is fantastic as very central to Montreal. Lots of food and drinks stands and more importantly toilets. Went to see the ice hockey game and it was not as cold as I thought. Very well organised and great atmosphere for all ages....More

Went on a corporate hospitality event. Game was not that great as Dallas outplayed Montreal by quite a bit. It was made up for with good company, great food, excellent service. Also it is very easy to find your way to the corporate boxes.

Always fantastic...went to Phil Collins concert in October. Fantastic arena with great seating and super views of the stage. Crowds were well managed and security was very good. Second time to a concert there and will go again for sure!

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

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.

Hi....of course it is the most famous circus in Canada, and maybe the best quality circus in the world..your confusion stems from the fact that the Bell center is also a hockey venue. But what you are asking about is... More
