There's no dearth of fabulous gay bars in Montreal's Ville-Marie, so what distinguishes Le Stud from the rest? Perhaps it is the bar's gorgeous, all male clientele, or perhaps it is the effortlessly eclectic ambiance that thrives here that draws in the crowds. Le Stud started out with the simple aim of being a place for "men who love men", an idea that is integral to everything about this place. While the vibe is friendly and laid-back, the decor favors a dark, mysterious and sultry style, a balance that is rare and hard to achieve. The music is always great, the drinks are delicious and the parties are wild, with themed nights, pool tournaments and special events galore. During the day, though. Le Stud is simply a great place to enjoy a casual drink with friends.
The Dominion Square Tavern is a lovely pub reminiscent of the 1920s located in the heart of the city. The decor is an elegant mix of the Parisian and British upscale pub scene. From the Art Deco lamps, shoeshine foot stools and wooden saloon doors, to the refurbished chandeliers and vintage china, all of the details are impeccable. On the menu are delicious treats like pan seared salmon, pulled-pork sandwich, choice of cheeses and desserts include toffee pudding, cheesecake and other mouth-watering treats.
If you're looking for a bar where mixology is key, then Le Lab is the place to be! With rows and rows of liquor decorating the bar, it looks more like the home of a mad scientist than a cocktail pantry. To add to the dark yet inviting interior design, all bar tenders are flare tenders, throwing in tricks as they mix your favorite cocktail. Each bar tender and server is said to know how to make any sort of drink, so if you can't decide on a drink on their extensive menu, ask for a recommendation! Dark velvet curtains also add to the interior, so at times from the outside, the bar can look quite dark and perhaps even closed. However, do not hesitate, try the door and if they are open, you are sure to have a great time!
One of Montreal's favorite hangouts, Chez Serge, boasts of monstrous sized screens that play all your favorites and not to mention hockey.

If you are the ultimate hockey fan, now you know where to head.
