What's the best part about the NHL season? Habs winning over the Leafs! We know you’re looking for a cheap beer, a poutine, and a good atmosphere to cheer on the Habs as they beat the eternal chokers from Toronto. We’re here to hook you up.
Where: 1210 Peel St.
Why: If you’re going to watch the game with a big group, look no further than McLean’s Pub. Whenever there’s a Habs game, locals flock to McLean’s for the poutine and beer towers. That’s right, a tower of beer. Don’t miss out!
Next Door Pub
Where: 5175 Sherbrooke West
Why: This place is a Montreal gem, everybody will end up knowing your name if you go often enough not to mention it is the right side for a really stacked ambinace, they also have a super fun lil terrasse out front. We say try this one out sooner than later.
Station des Sports
Where: 2051 Sainte- Catherine St W
Why: What’s a hockey game without pints and burgers? Don't stress, at Station des Sports you’re not trying to break the bank. We get it, don’t worry. At Station des Sports the Giant Cheeseburger with Bacon Platter will only cost you $8.95, and a pitcher of beer is $12. That’s a sick deal. Since it’s located at both ends of rue St. Catherine, you can catch the game no matter which side of the city you’re at.
Where: 2956 St Laurent Boulevard
Why: Champs is one of the best places to watch a Habs game. With tons of memorabilia on the walls, more TVs than you can keep your eyes on over two floors, and great deals on pint + food combos, Champs has a great atmosphere to watch P.K. Subban crush Leafs’ players on the boards and snipe from the blue line.
La Cage aux Sports
Where: 1437 René-Lévesque Boulevard West
Why: Locals love this sports bar in the Old Port. If you’re looking for good wings, La Cage aux Sports has you got you covered. Even better, they’re ½ price Monday-Thursday starting at 4 pm. Perfect for the tonight’s game at 7:00
Ye Olde Orchard Pub & Grill
Where: 5563 Monkland Avenue
Why: Sometimes you want a more intimate feel and actually concentrate on the game without a bunch of drunken idiots yelling at the screen. Ye Olde is a bit smaller than the other places on this list, but with good beer and good pub food, this is where you wanna go for a smaller bar.
Cock N' Bull
