Top 10 Montreal Deals
Exchange students, Interns, or young professionals, we all agree to say that we LOVE Montreal, but we are not as rich as Croesus. And you know you'll like Montreal even better if you could spend less while still making the most of your stay here.
So we found for you the 10 best Montreal deals!
1/ Dollar cinema
You always have second thoughts before deciding to go to the cinema? Believe it or not, it is possible to go watch a movie in Montreal without eating pasta the whole previous week. Dollar cinema is different from other movie theaters that usually ask you to pay your ticket 12 to 15$. There, they aim to provide you with affordable entertainment, so the admission is at $2.50 and all snacks at $1.00!.
2/ Free dance lessons
You wanna have fun and meet new people while learning a new dance or improving your skills? BUT you can’t afford high prices of common dance lessons in Montreal? We have a few addresses where dancing for FREE is possible!
- Salsa and Samba at the 649 club,
- Swing every Tuesday at the Petit Medley,

3/ Girls eat for FREE
Again, I guess you won’t believe it before experiencing, but IT DOES EXIST IN MONTREAL. Girls can eat for FREE and we all agree on the fact that it tastes better when it’s FREE right?

5/ Hairdressing and beauty schools
Again, compared to European countries where hairdressers and beauty salons are affordable, it seems very expensive in Montreal to take care of yourself.
