There are numerous fun ways to spend a night. Getting laid just happens to be our favourite. These are the best of the best when it comes to Quebec City hookup sites and bars.
Located on Grande-Allée, L’Atelier is a little bit like Tinder in bar form. Weekend nights, it gets full of coeds in search of good drinks, tasty bites and sexual healing. It’s actually a great restaurant and a fine place to bring someone you’ve met on Cougar Life. The food is exquisite, and the atmosphere is hip but not pretentious.
That said, the crowd definitely leans toward the young and hipster-y side late at night. That isn’t a criticism, just an observation.
Like the aforementioned Tinder, if you’re the right demographic, L’Atelier will be your favourite of the Quebec City hookup bars. For other people, it might be best to grab a bite and move on.
With more than half of all hookups starting online you really can't avoid being on at least one app, especially these days. The problem is that there are only a couple that are worth your time but it's hard to figure out which are the best on your own. Fortunately, we can help.
After a lot of trial and error and working with a lot of guys we've found that Adult FriendFinder is the best hookup app in Quebec, especially for single guys. Tinder is decent as well, if you're really good looking, but AFF tends to perform a lot better for most guys.
Just about every guy out there is going to get the most consistent results using AFF out of all the other options!
AFF has become really popular in Quebec and it's completely focused on hookups (unlike Tinder these days). All the women on it are looking for hookups and not just to collect compliments from lonely guys.
If you haven't given their free trial below a shot you need to too. It's too popular to ignore and you just can't get away with not using apps anymore.
We suspect you’ll have plenty of luck with the sites and bars we’ve already mentioned. But we don’t want to be accused of being stingy. Here are a few more bars and apps for arranging hookups in Quebec.
Nothing beats an Irish pub that feels like home! Combine that with the luck of the Irish (in love, among other things) and you have Pub St. Patrick.
This popular pub hosts a variety of special events that draw in a crowd. Step inside and grab yourself a pint. They offer some popular lagers, some of the best IPAs and a handful of craft brews. Whether you’re a connoisseur or not, you’ll enjoy the selection of drinks here.
Oh, and did we mention that there’s an outdoor area here too? With the same atmosphere as an authentic beer garden, you’ll start feeling social in no time!
So much of Quebec City’s charm is in its diverse culture and openness to all people. Take, for instance, Pub Nelligan’s, the city’s premier Irish pub and a home away from home for many.
In a French city, this bar is thoroughly Irish and yet still a perfect reflection of our city. That’s in large part because so many locals come here on the regular.
If you’re a whiskey drinker, you should have been at Pub Nelligan’s yesterday. With drink specials every day of the week and whiskey tastings once a month, this bar is a drinker’s delight. It also happens to be an ideal location for Quebec hookups. The great vibes, flowing alcohol and boisterous, large crowds are a potent mix.
Not all nightclubs are the same: The vibe, the location of the venue and the crowd make a big difference for guys looking to meet girls. Here are the best clubs to meet single girls in Quebec City.
If a club has been around for 40 years, would you still want to go there? Before you think that Le Dagobert is a club for oldies, think again. It’s a club that consistently revamps and rebrands itself to maintain its place as the top bar for the trendy crowd.
Girls from all over the city go here on Friday and Saturday nights to dance, let loose and maybe meet someone special. So get your moves ready as the guest DJs pump out the beats!
This isn’t your typical nightclub. But it remains one of the nightlife mainstays in Quebec City for a reason. For one, no other club can boast the presence of a mechanical bull, retro music and 80s-inspired decor all in one space? So if you want to meet a girl who can appreciate all things old school, you’ll find her here.
Midnight Blue’s diverse crowd is always full of hot girls dressed to the nines. And the best part is that all of them are on the dance floor, shaking what their mama gave them. No doubt, this club is one of the best places to pick up girls in Quebec City!
And for morning lovers, here are the best places to find cool hookups in Quebec during the day
This café near Old Quebec is always crowded. But, oddly enough, it’s quiet enough for you to engage some patrons in a conversation.
Despite the limited number of tables, you’ll find that Smith Cafe is a welcoming space. You can often find girls hanging out indoors or right outside as they enjoy their coffee, smoothies and granola bars.
Many Quebec City girls also visit this place for brunch to enjoy their delicious sandwiches,. pastries and wraps. Everything at Smith Cafe is made fresh, which is why every item on the menu is a must-try!
If fitness is a big part of your life, you need to make the most out of your workout. Instead of working out at a gym full of dudes, pick one that Quebec City girls also frequent. And by that, we mean it’s time to get a membership at Planet Fitness.
Planet Fitness offers you a variety of workout options--from state-of-the-art machines, a vast weight room, fitness classes and of course, sexy, fit girls everywhere.
Naturally you don’t want to be the guy who approaches a girl when she’s busy with her workout. But when you catch her chilling out after a routine or after your Zumba class, it’s time to make your intro!
Saint Roch is known for its quirky personality, and no place reflects that better than MacFly Bar Arcade. This place has three things to offer: arcade games, beer and grilled cheese sandwiches. If that isn’t a recipe for Quebec hookups, we don’t know what is. No, we’re actually being serious.
Okay, so video games and grilled cheese don’t scream seduction, but this place does work magic. One thing MacFly can always guarantee is a lot of fun, and that’s a pretty powerful aphrodisiac.
It’s also laidback and welcoming (and 18+ only, importantly). Come down solo or bring a sexy companion. It’s basically impossible to have a bad time here.
Let’s break up the pattern a bit with something a little different. Sure, bars provide an excellent space to meet a sexy stranger that's also out looking for hookups in some of the proven spots. But day drinking isn’t always a good look, and we get horny when the sun’s out too. What are we supposed to do? Hit up a coffee house, of course.
Our favorite coffee shops in the city are Café La Maison Smith. There are six locations throughout Quebec City, but for our money, the best is in Old Quebec.
Meeting someone over coffee is far more relaxed and allows for a little easier conversation. There’s no yelling over a DJ or fighting with crowds at the bar. Down some caffeine and see what happens.
Feeling lazy to go out? No worries. You only need Tinder and a few good photos to get laid in Quebec
Among the students at Laval and Cégep Garneau, Tinder has no rivals. It’s the preferred hookup app for college students and recent graduates. It’s also the one with the sexiest user base. We don’t know anyone who hasn’t heard of this app. Though we do know plenty of people who have deleted it out of frustration.
Here’s the thing about Tinder: It’s an app that focuses on the 18-28 set and works best if you’re hot. It’s really that simple. Every Millennial who’s given it a try knows what we mean. One day, it’s your most used app; the next day you’re not getting any hits. It might not happen that fast, but it’s true, you can definitely age out of Tinder.
For men, besides being in your 20s, you better be in the top 10-15% of looks. There are a lot of good-looking bros on this app. If you can't stand out with your pictures then you’re just going to be swiped away. Flash a six-pack and you’ll do just fine. On the other hand, if you’re hoping to win someone over with personality, scroll back up to AFF.
It’s a little different for women on Tinder. Sure, being attractive still matters. But most women on the app look pretty good and they almost all get tons of matches. Their options are plentiful, which is why they can afford to be extra shallow on Tinder. The hottest female Tinder users rarely even respond to messages. The compliments are enough to satisfy their egos.
Tinder seems to be resistant to being known as a hookup app. They’re currently working on evolving into an app for more general relationships and such. Fair play to them. Still, it’s unlikely they’ll ever be known for anything other than being the sexiest of the Quebec City hookup apps.
Now that we've gone over the best options for finding Quebec hookups you need to plan out how you're going to spend your nights. Use the map below to planning out your dating strategy and ensure that you're not wasting any time. Hit a few different places each night and get solid results.
