Montreal, Canada

Montreal is known for its superb cuisine, vibrant nightlife, festivals, sunny terraces, cultural diversity and that special joie de vivre (joy of life), that Montrealers are famous for.

Canada's second largest city has been attracting a growing number of single guys who are lured to Montreal for the beautiful women, their liberal attitude and Montreal's fabulous nightlife. In fact, with over 30 male and female strip clubs in the downtown area alone, nightclubs that stay open past 3 a.m., low drinking age of 18 years old, and some of the best nightlife spots in the world, Montreal is referred to as Canada's "Sin City".

Make sure to check out The Formula 1 Canadian Grand Prix, an event that's on par with America's Super Bowl and which kicks off Montreal's non-stop summer festival season. Because no matter the season, time or weather, Montrealers flock to festivals like moths to a flame.

Cities like Montréal don't happen very often. Truly fascinating. Let us show you around.
