Montreal’s Summer Secret—Terrasse Culture

June 16, 2015

The Best Time of the Year

June is the best month of the year. I think so anyways. In Montreal, June means everything is alive and green. Flowers abound across the city and the weather is perfect for being outside – not too hot, not too cold. So, if you’re here on business or just passing through on your way somewhere else, book an affordable accommodation in Montreal and take some time to enjoy our outdoor spaces before you continue on your way.

Our Urban Secret

One of the best ways to do this is simple: outdoor terrasse (if you’re not familiar with this word, it means patio)! Montrealers love their terrasses and it’s part of the culture here – you could say they’re a bit of an institution in the city. Maybe because for six months a year everyone is hiding indoors, or maybe just because it is so enjoyable! Regardless, if you’re staying in one of our hotel suites downtown Montreal, there are many great places you can check out. Keep in mind that the province is changing its laws on smoking in public places, so you may not be allowed to light up on the terrasse!

Le Ste-Élisabeth.
Trendy European flair. Plus it’s not far from our Montreal hotel suites.  1412 Ste. Elisabeth.

Saloon Bistro Bar. 
Serving up great food and atmosphere since 1992. This is a great choice if you’d like to walk over for 5@7 from our hotels near the gay village. 1333 Ste. Catherine Est.

Feel like something ethnic? This Vietnamese cuisine won’t disappoint. Choose from their Southeast Asian menu, refreshing beers and select wines. 243 Av. du Mont-Royal Ouest.

An intimate terrasse in Montreal’s core. You’ll enjoy a great view, menu, cocktails and service – all from their rooftop terrasse. 1476 Crescent St.

Terrasse du Château St-Ambroisie.
Trendy and tasty, this terrasse is perfect for business or group events, as well as personal pleasure. You’ll find French and international cuisine, weekend brunches, cocktails and great service. 4020 Saint-Ambroise – Door 140.

Imaginative and quality local cuisine. Located in an old fire hall, the dining room is now outfitted in very cozy and trendy décor. Terrasse is perfect for any time of the day. 3165 Rachel Est. Ask our concierge to call you a cab from our hotel suite Montreal.

Place Ville Marie.
Next year, early in 2016, there will be new all-season terrasses opening atop Place Ville Marie. Plus an observatory and boutique shops…put it on your list for your next visit to Montreal! It will boast great views, food and atmosphere.
