It's pretty obvious that a great way to make memories is by indulging in food, drinks, and making new friends. So, I comprised a list of some amazing places where you can enjoy fabulous food, wild drinks, and meet fun people right here in Montreal. Each place is unique in their own way and most are actually supper clubs!

Laika is not your typical night out. Instead of being a restaurant, it is actually a local hangout with coffee, small plates, and  Sunday brunches. But, it all turns into a DJ lounge at night. So, if you rather have a chill night out where you can meet low-key people, then Laika is the place for you!

1. Live The High Life At Joverse

Enjoy a fabulous dinner at Joverse and then watch it transform into one of Montreal's wildest clubs! Their food is absolutely fabulous and I strongly suggest getting some of their famous crab cakes! Afterwards, grab a mojito with your girls and meet different people from the most unique places. You can dance, drink, and eat for the perfect night out with your BFFs and the new friends you will make.


2. Live The High Life At Santos

For good food, good drinks, and new people, I recommend going to Pink Flamingo! Not only will you feel classy AF, but you will also enjoy nice champagne and some delectable food! Their french cuisine is fabulous and the atmosphere is elegant enough that you can meet new people who aren't complete wierdos.
