Best Montreal Rooftop Terrasses

Terrasse + drinks + panoramic views = summer fun!

Summer and all its glory is finally here and that only means one thing…the time has come to celebrate how awesome our city is with some truly kick ass rooftop terrasses!

MTL Blog has put together a few places to add to your list... Heck maybe you’ll find a new hotspot that you’d never even heard of to check out this summer (you can thank us later if you do).

For an unbeatable eyeful of the Old Port and a whack of other Montreal landmarks, this unpretentious rooftop terrasse on the roof of the Auberge du Vieux-Port Hotel is the place to go. Open from the end of May through mid-October, this sprawling terrasse is a favorite for nibbling cod croquettes, sipping clear sangria and watching the International Fireworks Festival.Located on the 6th floor of the Hyatt Regency Montreal, this is the perfect spot to enjoy summer festivals and great drinks. It overlooks the Quartier des spectacles in the heart of the Montreal cultural scene. During the summer, every Thursday from 5 – 7pm, go and enjoy a cool beverage outside while taking in the music from one of their famous DJs.If you are searching for an intimate terrasse in the heart of Montreal then Le Newtown is your spot! With a unique and audacious place at the top of the building: Le Balcon. Come enjoy a delicious cocktail from their seductive menu while taking in an awesome skyline city view. Their white couches are waiting for you!Nestled atop of the beautiful Hotel Place d’Armes, you’ll find a wonderful terrasse on the 7th floor open till 3am! (weather permitting). This is a great place to laze back and enjoy the sunny times. However if it does start to rain, there is a nice retractable awning to keep you dry while you drink.Tokyo has quickly staked a solid reputation as one of Montreal’s premier nightlife hot spots. Tokyo boasts one of the city’s best terrasses, packed with a fun, pretentious-free environment, that catering to everyone. If you want a night of great city fun…better hit this spot asap!Depending on the weather, you can stay inside and stay cool in the spacious, chic interior room, or you can go outside and sun yourself on the fairly sizable terrasse. Both offer a great experience, but honestly the terrasse is truly where it’s at for a weekly Thursday happy hour drink.Located in the heart of the gay village of Montreal the rooftop terrasse is a great spot to go to enjoy the summer breeze as well as a wonderful skyline view of the city. The atmosphere is very pop and friendly for young people. Great place to dance your face off and cool down on the fantastic rooftop terrasse!
