Bell Center sports bar and shop, Montreal

What to buy here: Hockey Memorabilia.

If you happen to visit Montreal between late September and early May, there is no way you can miss out on what locals call the “hockey fever”. Being the official 21st century religion of the city, the tri-weekly games are the most important social events of the winter, and everyone’s invited! If you can’t get your hands on tickets, there is still a possibility to be quite close to the action by watching the game at the sports bar in the Bell Center, cleverly located at 1909 Canadiens de Montreal Avenue, just a little bit south of the business and shopping district. The atmosphere is electric and unforgettable! A good pint, a bucket of chicken wings and a live game – enjoying hockey in Montreal doesn’t get any better than that. And while you are there, make sure to visit the Canadiens souvenir shop, which offers hundreds of memorabilia items, from traditional hockey jerseys ($120) to baby bibs ($10) to license plate frames ($5). There’s something for every hockey fan in your entourage! Opening hours are from 9:30AM to 6PM from Monday to Wednesday, 9:30AM to 9PM on Thursday and Friday, and 9:30AM to 5PM on Saturday and Sunday. Also note that the store closes its doors two hours before the start of a game, so make sure to plan ahead!
