Anyone can see why Quebec City is a superb place to live. Sure, there’s the impressive architecture, captivating culture and, of course, the Saint Lawrence River.

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.
The Limoilou neighbourhood has recently attained the first speakeasy in Quebec City. Nénuphar is a “hidden” bar with so much to love about it. It perfectly reflects the French heritage of our city while being its own unique thing. It’s only open at night, which adds to the feeling that you’ve entered a place that truly has its own style.
Nénuphar has a drink menu that includes absinthe, cocktails and fine wine. This is where you come to snuggle up close with an attractive companion and get better acquainted. The vibe is intimate and sophisticated, making this a true highlight of Quebec City hookup bars. We’d be here every night of the week if our budget could afford it.
Wanting to hook up is nothing to be ashamed of. More people than you probably realize are out there looking for an easy, commitment-free lay. Globally, there are hundreds of apps and sites devoted to just that purpose. There are some good sites, bad ones and some just okay options. If you’re looking for a great hookup site, though, that list gets short, and it starts with Adult FriendFinder.
Created in the 90s and dominating the game since the mid-2000s, AFF is as good as it gets. When we assemble our yearly rankings of the best hookup apps and sites, it consistently lands on top. It’s a site that’s completely dedicated to hookups and nothing else. All its users are there for the same reason.
Speaking of users, AFF has over 90 million around the world. It’s the biggest of its kind and appeals to people of all ages. In our experience, men and women in their 30s are especially popular on this site (compared to other options). That’s nice because most other Quebec City hookup apps and sites are aimed at a younger age group. If you’re a guy who’s worried you don’t have the looks for a hookup site, worry not. This is a site for regular Joes and Janes.
Just about every guy out there is going to get the most consistent results using AFF out of all the other options!
AFF is a browser-based site (i.e., there’s no app), but it’s simple to use, even on a phone. It includes an extensive search function to help you narrow down your choices. Is proximity the most important factor, or is it sexual kinks (or maybe just cup size)? However picky you are, AFF gets you.
Try it out today and discover why Adult FriendFinder is the only hookup site in Quebec City most users need.
The popular Rue Saint-Jean in Saint-Jean Baptiste is a great place to spend an evening. Whether it’s your first stop of the evening or your last, be sure you step into Bar Le Sacrilège. It’s a neighbourhood bar with all the charm that implies, but it’s also so much more. You may happen to stop in during a concert or an art performance, or even an open mic night.
You can grab a meal with a date and enjoy a fine selection of pub fare and more elaborate bites. Or, you can arrive late for drinks and stay until three in the morning. Even on nights when there is no live entertainment, this bar gets pretty crowded (especially on weekends). All the better for meeting someone sexy who’s up for fun.
You have to admit it. Sometimes you get bored with women in their 20s. College students are fun, but the sex can be pretty average. When you’re looking for something more exciting, you can’t do better than a vivacious cougar. Adventurous (and smart) guys in their 20s know the best place to meet older women is on Cougar Life.
As a site dedicated to helping men meet women 35 and older, Cougar Life is the best of its kind. That’s in part because of its seven million-plus users, which is massive for a cougar hookup site. In fact, every year when we compile our review of the top cougar apps and sites, Cougar Life ranks high.
It’s not just an app for guys in their 20s. Men in their 30s, 40s and older are all on board with meeting sexy women with experience. They can use the app to find someone who’s looking to hook up tonight. You’ll also be alerted when someone looks at your profile, so there’s no wondering if you’re getting any views.
When you’re a woman in your late 30s or above, hookups can be more complex. Older women can find that meeting younger guys in bars results in judgment or rejection. Plus, a lot of women just don’t have the time to cruise bars anymore. That’s why Cougar Life has so many female users. They know they can find partners who appreciate a woman with talent. It provides a real boost of confidence.
To help those younger (or even older) men who lack confidence, we’ve created a course on dating women over 30. We know that approaching a sexy older woman can be intimidating. We’ll show you how to do it right. Then you can get on Cougar Life, the highest quality site of its kind, and have the time of your life. See why men are using it in cities all over Canada.
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 favourite 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.
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 City hookups. The great vibes, flowing alcohol and boisterous, large crowds are a potent mix.
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 Quebec City hookups.
The bar scene can be a bit much at times. From the crowds to the lack of seating, we don’t always feel like hitting up the pubs. That doesn’t mean we don’t want to drink. That’s why we look for beer markets and microbreweries. We still get the enjoyment of a tasty drink without the grimy bar vibe. Plus, we can drink in the day.
Quebec City is blessed with some great microbreweries, but for our money, La Barberie takes the cake. Their salon is open from noon until one in the morning with plenty of seating. The fantastic beers are a huge selling point, but hardly the only one. Bring your own lunch, get a round and work your finest game on a fellow beer lover.
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 your pictures don’t make you stand out, 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.
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 City 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.
On the Rue Saint-Jean, you’ll find one of the unsung spots for Quebec City hookups. No, we’re not talking about Bar Le Sacrilège again. J.A. Moisan Epicerie is a surprisingly effective place for meeting sexy singles. We say “surprisingly” because, well, Epicerie is a grocery store. The nicest one in the city, actually.
Before you picture some sleazy guy using vegetables to make bad pickup lines, hear us out. Meeting someone at the grocery store doesn’t have to be difficult or creepy. We’ve all been shopping and repeatedly crossed paths with someone attractive. Next time, think of something fun and flirty to say when you inevitably pass again. It really is that simple, and it can be a low-key way to spark a connection.
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.
