Bell Centre, Montreal

4.3
Autrefois nommée « Centre Molson » lorsque la construction fut complétée en 1996, l’aréna a été rebaptisé « Centre Bell » en février 2002. Ce nouvel aréna remplaça le Forum de Montréal, construit en 1924 et considéré le bâtiment le plus important de l’histoire du hockey. Situé au centre-ville de Montréal et avec une capacité de 21 288 sièges , le Centre Bell est le plus grand aréna pour le hockey en Amérique du Nord et une des salles de spectacles les plus technologiquement avancées et polyvalentes au monde. Il sert également de quartier général aux Canadiens de Montréal et à evenko.

Since its inauguration in 1996 under the name Molson Centre, the Centre Bell remains the centre stage for entertainment and business events in Montreal.

Every year, the home of the Montreal Canadiens attracts more than 1 million spectators to their hockey games, while 650,000 people walk through the doors to watch over 120 shows, for a total of 1.5 million spectators.

The Centre Bell incorporates cutting-edge technology to ensure the perfect ambience when it comes to sound, comfort, catering and otherwise for any event, whatever its magnitude.

Whether it's attending a Canadiens' game, a concert with a world famous artist or a family show, the Centre Bell is clearly at the top of anyone's venue list. Furthermore, the Centre Bell is the perfect place for corporate gatherings and receptions of any kind.

  • A great evening between hockey enthusiast and Montreal Canadiens for not too expensive, count about 200 dollars for places up in the whites, and 300 +/-dollars in the reds.

  • I had the great pleasure and honor to be one of the spectators of the yearly "Face to Face with celebrities" in this Mecca of Hockey. Entering the hall was an awesome experience, the size of this indo...  more »
  • We went to see the Canadiens hockey game against the Blackhawks this Saturday, March 16. As soon as one enters, there is a crowd of fast food, very handy souvenirs to take a hot dog and a drink before going to sit, even if not given. We didn't have a good place but it didn't matter, we just wanted to be there! And that it ambiance... It's really to be done at least once even if you're not a hockey fan.

  • Bell Center is the one and only place to go to. Great seats that take you away. Leaving your faces in awe. The hockey matches there are exceptional, in rare occasions NBA games makes it there and you must attend it. And sometimes, artists, new or veteran, make their appearance in there. It's just an amazing experience when events take place there. Although, the prices vary by the seat you take. It's still a very opportunity to rave or chill with your friends. A very enjoyable place.
  • We went to see Disney's On Ice Mickey's Search Party. I am a huge Disney fan and therefore so are my children. We have been to almost every show including Disney Live and this was by far one of the best. It covered every movie from Toy Story to Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, Coco, Frozen (and I am sure I am forgetting 1 or 2). Not to mention having Mickey, Minnie, Goofy and Donald - all the kids faves!! Fabulous time for the family!
  • This was by far the most energy I’ve felt in an arena. The 200 level has food and non alcoholic drinks provided in the ticket price. To enter and to leave the arena was very easy and not a lot of congestion (we waited until after the 3 stars to leave). The next day we went back to the Bell Centre for a tour which I found to be very interesting. Learned a lot of history and was able to see the areas media, players present and past go during game days. Very neat experience.
  • Great facility had a meal before a concert good food and service. Went in the winter only thing was where we had seats it was very cold well into first act because of the entrance doors being open. Warmed up and no issues after, good sound for the concert and good security and police coverage before and after event.
  • Had a wonderful time...boy is it better than the old forum that is for sure. Clean and modern in every respect. Not sure if they use it for other things but hockey was first class regardless we did not win LOL!
