    Chez Serge is the Montreal sports bar for local scenesters and nightlife butterflies who really love sports, especially hockey. With the equivalent of a disco ball flashing the Habs colors across the bar, Chez Serge attracts a younger under 35 crowd. The red leather-lined decor and atmosphere are unbeatable for anyone looking for a new take on the sports bar experience. Equipped with one giant 110-inch TV screen, four "smaller" 58-inch plasma screens and additional screens in the booths. Beware the mechanical bull.

    Location: 5301 St. Laurent, corner of Maguire; (514) 270-3262
    Get there: Laurier Metro

    Big screens, a cool, down-to-earth crowd, bring-your-own-food-as-long-as-you-buy-drinks policy, lovely microbrews, an amazing selection of scotches, affordable prices across the board... now THIS is my kind of sports bar. Not that Le Boudoir is an actual sports bar.

    Location: 850 Mont-Royal Est, corner of St. Hubert; (514) 526-2819
    Get there: Mont-Royal Metro

    A top spot for soccer (football) fans and French expats in particular, but showcasing other sports games as well -rugby, if you're lucky- Avenue du Parc's Bar Monsieur Ricard serves a slew of drinks featuring pastis as well as baguette sandwiches and assorted bar fare. Equipped with three large screens, 80 seats and plenty of standing room, there's also a pétanque court on the back lawn.

    Located in the heart of the Rosemont district, Le Rosemont has been around since the '50s but was recently revamped and relaunched, complete with a brand new food menu, a first for the locale. A crowd varying in ages from twenties to fifties, Le Rosemont offers microbrews, imports and an exhaustive whisky selection. Overall, a superb spot to enjoy hockey playoffs. Also equipped with a terrace.

    Location: 2440 Rosemont, corner of Louis Hébert; (514) 279-1069
