We love the beating of the tam-tams and the dancing around a statue of an angel every summer Sunday at the foot of the “Mountain.” Or partying at a Picnik Électronic on an island in the middle of the St. Lawrence River. Or dancing to the spins of the hottest DJs till dawn and beyond. And we get a kick about how Montréal kicks back, at the cafés and art galleries on Saint-Laurent, in funky Plateau Mont-Royal and Mile End, and in the voluptuous Village.
We love the fabulous restaurants and glamorous nightlife. Renowned for sensational and original restaurants, Montréal endless bars and over 80 different kinds of food served in 6,000 restaurants, from 5-star to soul-comforting smoked-meat counters.
The streets of Montréal—like Laurier, Saint-Denis and Saint-Paul—are lined with one chic boutique, art gallery, funky café, design furniture store after another. Any one of them can beckon at any time, because each one has at least one original creation destined for each passer-by.
