A great place to hang out. There is pretty much everything someone may need. There is ample seating, restaurants, bars, pool, bowling, movie theatre and a shopping centre attached to the complex. It is also connected to the metro so freat access on rainy days and in the winter. The bowling is inside the sports bar therefore not a great... More

Needed something to do with the kids on a cold rainy sunday in May. Thought that bowling would be a good idea and the Forum looked like a convenient place. How wrong I was! The bowling alley was inside a sports bar! The young teenage girl at desk seemed like she is still half asleep. When I asked for the... More

I'm glad they kept the old forum, they did an adequate job displaying it's glory days. The main purpose of building is now really about entertainment. You'll find the Amc movie theatre, comedy nest, bowling and a saq then the rest is dawson classrooms and a gym.

As an comedy show, you take your chances...they can be good or bad. We had two good comedians so we were glad we attended. The layout is like a true comedy club (similar to Gotham in NYC) which means there is not a bad seat in the house. The bathrooms however are in ANOTHER club across the hall which we... More

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

The Forum was , for many years, the place for Stanley Cups, Maurice Richard, great hockey games and rock concerts.

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

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.
