All our classes plus some of the milongas will be held at the beautiful Tango Social Club/Studio Tango Montreal studios. Located at 7755 boul. St-Laurent in the up and coming Villeray district. The space is just across from Jarry park and near many lovely restaurants and cafes, in a neighbourhood which is hip, lively and ultra friendly. Unfortunately though, there are very few hotels in near by. We suggest exploring Airbnb for apartment rentals. Search for something near Villeray, Little Italy, Jarry Park or Jean-Talon Market.
If your preference is to stay in a hotel, we suggest looking for one in the downtown sector. Any centrally located hotel will be conveniently enough located near our Saturday and Sunday night gala milongas 200 Sherbrooke West). There are even quite a few hotels only steps away from the venue.
Check out Hotels.ca, Travelocity.ca etc for prices.
Transportation between the part of downtown near the Saturday and Sunday night milongas and the TSC location is incredibly easy. Buses run 24h (there is a direct bus going between the two locations) and taxis are plentiful and inexpensive.
A note here: if you are traveling to Montreal by Train, Bus or Plane, then DO NOT bother renting a car. It is not necessary. (parking is a hassle and traffic can be horrid in Montreal) Both of our locations are easily accessible by public transit. Taxis are inexpensive and can be hailed on the street.

Montréal is a lovely tourist destination. Europeans find it to be North American in spirit, while many Americans find it to be a quick European-like getaway. Montréal's blend of French culture, fantastic restaurants and its multicultural and multilingual sophisticationall blended with a quirky and very artistic presence makes for a unique and incredibly charming place. Its architecture, sense of fashion, superb cuisine and unique culture truly make Montréal a favoured destination.
One of the oldest North American cities (established in 1642), Montreal is located on an island in the St-Lawrence Sea Way. Montreal has beautiful neighbourhoods with tree-lined streets, little parks, squares and sidewalk cafés all designed for taking a break and enjoying life.
The official language of Quebec is French, however Montréal has the highest number of bilingual (and indeed, trilingual) people in Canada. The metro (subway) is very easy to negotiate and many of the buses in the central sector run all night long.
Montréal is famous for many things, from Montréal-style bagels and smoked meat, Sunday tam-tam drum jams on the mountain, many festivals including "Just for Laughs" and the "International Jazz Festival" as well as a weekly fireworks competition in the summer. Montreal is also an inspiring city for learning and the arts, with more university students per capita than even Boston, a world class symphony and ballet company.
