You know, your friends with benefit, casual hook up, woe, girl you're seeing, all terms to define someone that you're having a sexual encounter with, but not necessarily dating publicly. This could also work if you just started seeing someone and want to keep it more on the DL so that your friends and family don't start bombarding you with questions like: when's the wedding?! when it's your second date.
So, where do you bring someone you want to enjoy an evening with, but without running into everyone you know? It's getting harder in this city, since all the low key places, turned into the new hip go-to bars. These places have THE best ambiance for a romantic evening, and prove that there's still a couple hidden gems in the city, if you're willing to do some research... Or simply read along.
Where the saints come to sin. It's located on the corner of Duluth and Mont Royal. It's the perfect place to bring a low key date because it's intimate, and always busy. You'll never catch someone you know there... If you do, they're probably sinning too.
You've heard about it/been there before, but it remains a hidden spot. It feels like a magical secret club, and unless you're looking for it- it stays hidden with no sign of life outside of its grey metal doors.
This place is perfect to go on a date without being seen. It's located on Parc Avenue, and has no sign or name, for its location. It's just that bar that you know of because you've been referred or you happen to walk by it and felt the need to check it out. The ambiance is sexy, lights are dimmed and perfectly intimate for a tête à tête.
Located right off of St Catherine Street. It's always packed, the restaurant is so deep in length, that there's a slim chance you'll be caught out. Plus the lights are dimmed, making it a warm atmosphere.
And if you've already done all of the above, you can always rent a limo and drive around the city... The windows are usually tinted, and some drivers might even let you drink!
And incase you still didn't get it, IT'S A JOKE. But the restaurants are good.
While there are a million and one spots to enjoy a 5 à 7 in the city, not everywhere does happy hour quite like this Montreal restaurant in the Village.
Resto Keela serves $6 drinks from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., including house draft beer, house red or white wine, and speed rail mixed drinks, which is a choice of vodka, rye, rum, or gin — a pretty hard drink deal to beat.
As for food, you can go every week and try a different $6 dish at happy hour. "The $6 bites change from week to week but we always offer 3-5 options," owners Kristin Murphy and Johnny Hamilton told MTL Blog.
I went on September 10 and got to try green beans with a cashew romesco sauce and feta crumble, chorizo sausage, chicken Kaarage with kimchi cucumbers, and organic cherry tomato salad with blue cheese. And I kid you not when I say these dishes all take your taste buds on a culinary trip to heaven.
Keela's full menu is also filled with tons of unique dishes for you to try. The celery root carpaccio is hands down my favourite.
Every Friday night, you can hear the sweet voice of Bud Rice sing live at the restaurant.
