It’s down to the wire and you still haven’t decided how you’re going to spend your New Year’s Eve in Montreal. All you do know is that you want an event with an open bar, because singing Auld Lang Syne while waiting in line to pay for a drink is no way to bid adieu to 2014 and say bon jour to 2015. Fortunately for you, the hotels and bars of Montreal are well versed in the language of New Years and are practically fluent in open bar.
Take the bar Olympia de Montreal for example, their Celebration 2015, will bring together over 2,500 people to celebrate New Years this year. Along with 4 DJs and a band, the club will also boast a minimum of 10 bars and 20 bartenders to avoid patrons waiting in long lines during the evening’s festivities. This is important, because less waiting equals more drinking, which equals more fist pumping.
Still not impressed? Consider attending the New Years Eve 2015 Gala at the Hyatt Regency. This event comes with the option of a 3-course meal and 5 hours of open bar, a perfect choice for the Montreal NYE partygoer looking for a no-stress night full of service, style, and sophistication. If however, you want a little more mystic to your night, you might try Carnavalesque, Montreal’s sexiest New Years party at the Cabaret Lion D’Or. What makes this show so special? Well, Carnavalesque combines elements of circus and burlesque with the spicy flavors of carnival. This year’s theme is Asian Carnival and my guess is that you will be so mesmerized by the performance that you may just forget all about the open bar entirely.
These are just a few of the bars and hotels with open bar specials on New Years Eve. Explore more great options below, but make your decision soon, because these events will sell out quickly. Of course, once you have figured out your plans for New Years, there is still the question of where to get your poutine fix after staying out all night. I’ll leave that decision up to you…
