Had a long day and need to relax? Shisha bars can be the perfect place to go, have some drinks and unwind. Usually, Shisha bars have relaxing music, low lighting and delicious drinks (teas, coffee and alcohol).
The idea is to relax! You can either enjoy your personal time or have good conversations with your friends.
We have some great Shisha bars in Montreal, recognized by Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux (MSSS).
Here's a list with the best ones.
Café Gitana is very rich in culture. With exotic gastronomy and the warmth of the Mediterranean, Café Gitana is capable of taking you directly to Turkey. The Balkan music in the background and traditional carpets gives the place an even more relaxing vibe. You will also see musical instruments and pictures hanging on the walls, which will make you feel transported in this fascinating region.
