Montreal's Most Unusual Bars

Wow, so cool!

When it comes to nightlife, Montreal is the undisputed king of all things fun if you ask me. I even wrote an article last week explaining why I think Montreal is better than Toronto in this department. We really know how to have fun in our city.

There is a broad variety of bars to choose from in Montreal. Today, I want to make you discover our city's most unusual bars with the most unique concepts. Just helping you to make fun weekend plans... you're welcome!
