Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
Attending a big-ticket sporting event is one of the best things to do in Montreal, but if you didn’t make the ticket booth on time for the face-off/jump ball/coin toss, there’s a seat waiting for you in a sports bar. It’s never an easy feat to score tickets to a big game, match, race, bout, fight or whatever it might be, so when you come up short, park yourself at any one of these spots, be it a pub or dive bar. Some have taps flowing with the best beer while others dish out the best burgers or satisfying cheap eats so phenomenal that it’s an experience second only to being at the game itself.
