Metropolis is a concert venue for acts that are able to sell maybe a few thousand tickets, but not enough for larger venues, like the Bell Centre. So you'll have quite a crowd in a venue that remains somewhat intimate. Security gave me a full...More

Great concert and great venue but shame on the owners for selling too many tickets-greedy bastards. I felt like a sardine and probably smelled like one afterward. Can't imagine if they had been an emergency ... very dangerous.

I wondered why an international star as PJ Harvey would give her two-nights shows in Montreal at the Metropolis Theater and I understood the night of the concert. Great place, excellent waitering service. Arrive early to be seated on the second floor balcon. If not...More

Went to see Alter Birdge in February. The venue is great bars and bathrooms are conveniently located and there is no bad seat. The sound was terrible, there was an echo so the vocals didn't sound great. Very disappointing.

Was at the Metropolis over the weekend to catch a show. I had forgotten how great this venue is. Sound was excellent, you can sit anywhere and have a great view. Friendly staff, good service. All in all a great evening.

We went to see Delain, Sonata Arctica and Nightwish. The show was sold out but we still got in very quickly. Coat check is 2.50 and well staffed, with 4 lines. Early birds got to sit on the mezzanine level if they desired while the...More

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and
commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship
stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate
headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by
nightfall transforms from a business district into a
youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young
