Strict dress code (no shorts/jeans/sneakers). 10 pm &#8211; 3 am. If you arrive late &#8230; then you will be waiting forever.</p> <p>If you wanted to skip the bar and club scene, a fun way to spend an evening is to head to down to the old port, and snap some night photos of Montreal&#8217;s old stone buildings. Montreal Casino is another option and is reachable by the metro.</p> <h2>Drinking Age</h2> <p>The legal drinking age within Montreal and the Province of Quebec is 18 years which is a little younger than the legal <a href="/contikipedia/articles/age-restrictions-north-america">age restrictions</a> in many other parts of North America.</p>
