Savor Your Stay By Stopping By Old Montreal For the Day Or Night
By : Anthony Branco
As the site for the original city founded in 1642, Old Montreal has kept centuries of European tradition and its architectural roots along the way. Vieux Montreal’s rebirth came in the past 10 years with a wave of boutique hotels, trendy nightlife, unique shops and undeniable restaurants. Savvy locals elude the mélange of tourist attractions, yet without both the rebirth wouldn’t have flourished.
Now for art gallery lovers, be sure to walk along St-Paul Street from McGill College to Place Jacques Cartier, where you can then stop for an ice cream, beavertail or a brew out on the many terraces of the many restaurants…but just a brew please for you have tons of eateries to choose from. On St-Paul make sure to checkout the highly-regarded Olive & Gourmando.
Java U Lounge on St-Paul is a more intimate lounge for a great martini (checkout their upstairs seating) during the summer months. Honorable mention: Le Quartier which turns into Q, a glitzy and youthful supperclub on the weekends and Suite 701 with their impeccable summer rooftop-terrace at Place d’Armes.
