I often get asked the following question, "Irina, where do all the cool people hang out?" Montreal does have an "elite" group of
rich kids people where everyone knows each other. They hang out at certain bars, clubs and restaurants in our city. These places usually stand out from the rest of Montreal establishments with unique interior design, exceptional service and above-average price tags. If you're curious to know what these places are, keep reading, because I put together the ultimate list of spots where Montreal's crème de la crème likes to eat, drink and socialize.
