Hello Darlings, Montreal is famous for an abundance of stylish restaurants and supper clubs. If you are curious where to go here are some suggestions – and happy to share that a few of my favorites have special treats for you – including a chance to have complimentary bottle service at one of the city’s best night spots.


Rosalie is an upscale restaurant bar in the heart of downtown on Rue de la Montagne. Just steps from the main shopping Saint Catherine Street, the restaurant serves tasty Italian food and designer cocktails. With a large terrasse, Rosalie is ideal for enjoying warm summer evenings dining outdoors. With a stylish crowd, they also host parties twice a week at their The Club House venue on the 3rd floor — where one lucky reader will be treated to complimentary bottle service – see below!

Les Enfants Terribles is a cozy french style brasserie located on the charming Bernard Street. The 20 and 30 something crowd is stylish and the food is excellent. It’s about a 10 minute drive from downtown Montreal located in the Outremont neighborhood on the other side of Mont Royal, but definitely worth trying especially for a date night.

Dieu du Ciel! is a fun hangout in the trendy plateau neighborhood, which is nothing fancy but always busy. Dieu du Ciel! is primarily a microbrewery, and it’s definitely worth checking if you’re a beer lover — or have a beer lover in your life! My personal favorite is Aphrodisiaque, which is a black ale with aromas and flavors of vanilla, dark chocolate, bourbon and roasted malt. Plan ahead though, since many of their beers are high percentage alcohol up to 9.8%.

Mechant Boeuf is my favorite in Old Montreal, located on the famous cobblestone St-Paul street in the heart of Old Montreal. The restaurant is modern with a mix of steak and seafood. My favorite nights are Tuesday and Wednesday, when Mechant Boeuf has live bands playing mostly fun rock music at a sensible level. The crowd is usually stylish, and it’s probably the best option in Old Montreal for a Girls Night Out.

    You should go to Baldwin Barmacie on Avenue Laurier West and Candi Bar on Saint-Hubert!!! Both places have a 20-30 age crowd and they serve amazing drinks!!

    • April 15, 2013 / 1:41 am

      Thanks Aline, I’ve seen Baldwin Barmacie and it looked like a cool spot but never went in. What nights / times do you recommend going?

        I’ve only been there on Saturday nights but I’ve heard good things about their Friday nights also! The place tends to get busy around 10-10:30 but if you don’t want to be standing the whole night I would suggest getting there around 9:30-9:45 as the seats get taken-up super fast.

        • April 15, 2013 / 2:04 am

          Thanks Aline. Did you try the food?? And any thoughts on what to wear??

          I love going out on Laurier, but it’s so different the crowd one place to the next.

            I’ve never tried the food but they are very well known for their mac and cheese.
            As for the dress code, the place is very trendy-chic so I would say a cute dress with a nice pair of heels would be fine or even a nice dress pant with heels. 🙂
