Living in Laval can sometimes be difficult for those who want some variety in their nightly outings. During the summer, however, there is a wide selection of options one can choose from if they'd rather stay closer to home and save on gas. Terrasses are often the best choice for a relaxing night out with your significant other, or even your closest friends.
1. Univers Ristorante Bar
In Laval, most people know Univers as having one of the best terrasses in the area, especially because they're open until 2 am 6 nights a week. They offer a great drink menu, and an even better ambiance both inside the restaurant and outside on the terrasse. If you're looking for a place to enjoy a great sangria after the sun has set, look no further than Univers.
2. Tango Cocktails
Tango is another favourite terrasse spot for those who frequent Laval. Located in Centropolis, or the "downtown of Laval," it has one of the best spots to sit outside, enjoy a cocktail and even smoke some shisha. Their terrasse has a nice view of the fountain and is a prime spot for people-watching while eating gelato with your friends. If you do decide to plan a terrasse outing at Tango, make sure you go early, as it's almost always full and you'll have to wait or settle for sitting inside while enviously gazing out the window at the people enjoying their night on the terrasse.
3. Le Fumoir Rubs
Rubs is not only an amazing restaurant, but it offers a nice terrasse where you can eat some fried chicken and waffles or the brisket with mac and cheese. The restaurant is known for its delicious Southern-style BBQ and unique menu. It is slightly far, especially if you're coming from Montreal. Nevertheless, you'll realize that it's definitely worth the drive once you take a bite into their amazing St. Louis ribs.
4. The Keg Steakhouse & Bar
Don't let the fact that the Keg is attached to Carrefour Laval stop you from paying the terrasse a visit. Not only does the Keg have amazing food, but it has an incredible atmosphere inside and out. Their rooftop terrasse offers a change of scenery where you can enjoy a nice glass of wine and their famous steak. If you're feeling fancy, this is the terrasse to visit.
5. Juliette & Chocolat
Already a classic within Montreal, Juliette et Chocolat have recently opened in Laval due to high demand. This restaurant is a great place to have a girls night filled with gossip over chocolate fondue. The terrasse is located in the same area as Tango Cocktails, so you're still guaranteed a nice view of the Centropolis fountain. And if you happen to sit on the terrasse on a colder night, you can enjoy their classic style hot chocolate in good company.
You can have your cake and eat it too on the terrasse at Rockaberry in Laval. Their large terrasse provides you with lots of space to sit back and relax while you share your piece of pie with someone special.
Most people who are not familiar with Moomba know it as just "that club in Laval." Anyone who frequents this spot knows that they have one of the best terrasse in Laval, complete with comfortable couches and heating lamps for those colder nights. The bar is located right in the middle and the terrasse itself offers a great space for meeting new people while having a drink or two.
8. Jack Astors Bar & Grill
Laval's Jack Astors location has a terrasse that is not far from Moomba, but offers a different ambiance. With a wide variety of drink choices and several tv screens to catch whatever sports event is currently in demand, you're guaranteed to have a laid back and fun night on their beautiful terrasse.
9. Volume Cafe Bistro
Volume is located in a somewhat more secluded spot but is known in Laval as a great place to hang out with your friends on any night. Its terrasse is a bonus on hot summer nights, where you can sit back and share some shisha with your friends while keeping cool with a nice frappe. It's the best of both worlds.
10. Restaurant Galleria
Galleria is famous in Laval for its great breakfast menu and amazing terrasse. Be sure to go as early as possible because you'll regret missing out on the chance to eat brunch on their terrasse. What's better than enjoying a chocolate hazelnut crepe under the sun?
