We did the tour of the centre and went to a game. It is a great venue and the fans are also awesome. I am a Boston Bruins fan, my son is a Canadiens fan. If you love hockey this is a bucket list trip. It is not cheap but it will be priceless.

Centre Bell is the main spot for large pop and rock music concerts in town, as well as boxing events. Classical music plays elsewhere. Built in the mid-nineties, it has no inside columns or obstructions, seats are OK all around; the very top sections would be so-so. It is the house of the Canadiens de Montréal, our beloved ice hockey... More

The hallways are too small and quickly become overcrowded. The food suchas hot dogs are prepared long in advance and are always cold, the smoked mearts are quite soggy. No hot water in the washrooms not located in premium sections

We've been to see the Canadiens play a few times at the Bell Centre, and we have a great time each time. The show before the game, with the lights on the ice is spectacular. The 50/50 draw is always really high. Obviously food and drinks are really expensive.

To get the sense of how Montrealer's live...go watch the Canadians playing hockey! Beer and food are super expensive but the center is huge and really nice. Has VIP rooms and many events and concerts happen there...

Nice size arena. Easy to access to seats and floor level. Food and drinks are way overpriced though. Was planning on getting a drink or two, but 11.75 for one beer is just ridiculous. The performers they have here are always great though!

I have been to many concerts at this venue. Most of the time the sound is pretty good. Sometimes they miss... Most of the time it is relatively quick to enter the building. The have many entrances. If you go without a purse, it is a lot faster. Exiting is pretty fast as well. It's a big centre so if... More

If you like hockey please see a game here! It has an excellent Habs history center. An amazing amount of hockey history. The facility is new and the fans are awesome even if you are on an opposite team, OK, maybe except Toronto.

This is hands down the best hockey environment in the world! Nowhere else compares!!! Wish there was more English but there are some people willing to help.

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.
