HELP! Locals Reccomendation: Twentysomething's Montreal NYEGreetings all,
Would love some input as to where to ring in 2013 in Montreal. Our group will be about 8-10 23/24 year old girls venturing from NYC to Montreal for the first time. We'll be spending the weekend leading up to NYE wandering the city but would like to set concrete NYE plans in advance.
Have combed a few websites and blogs, but am having trouble navigating the various events/venues. Some local recommendations would be greatly appreciated! We would like to go somewhere where the majority of the crowd will be closer to our age group rather then in the late teen set. A venue unique to Montreal/showcases Montreal culture would be cool (trying to escape the monotonous NYC NYE scene). We would like to dance though we don't have our hearts set on ringing in the new year in a club, we're open to an upbeat bar with a fun vibe as well.
Thanks in advance for any and all input!! - Much appreciated :)

1Unfortunately, I can't offer anything specific. In case you haven't already checked the following websites, give them a look:
To avoid the younger, English, student crowd, stay away from Crescent St and downtown. The Quartier Latin is also pretty young. Look for places further up St-Laurent in the Plateau and Mile-End and beyond into Little Italy (i.e. start heading north from des Pins and go all the way up to Jean-Talon...go as west as Ave du Parc and east past Papineau.) It'll take some digging around to find something cool; the Montreal scene spreads by word-of-mouth, especially in the Anglo community. Good luck!
