Montreal Nightlife

Montreal is well known for its nightlife. All year long, festivals make the city vibrate with energy. Put on your snow suit and warm up by dancing to the sound of music at the popular Festival Montreal en lumière or the Igloofest, which welcomes renowned DJs year after year.

Ice Skating

What is better than taking a moment out of your day or night to skate? Our favorite ice rink In Montreal is the Natrel rink located in Old Montreal. You can bring your own or rent skates onsite. As a bonus, you can enjoy the fireworks directly from the rink every Saturday from December 15 January 5. For more suggestions of places where you can skate, check out: patinermontreal.ca.

Packing your bathing suit in the middle of winter when visiting Montreal? We say yes to that! Spend a day at Bota Bota, a spa located on a boat on the St Laurent River. With their ever-so-relaxing thermal circuit, it is one of the best ways to enjoy the beauty of the Montreal winter scenery.
