Here at MTL Blog, we know a thing or two about food (I mean we do write about it every now and then). We also know that Montreal is probably the best place to go if you’re a food lover. Our dining scene is one of the best in the world, in our very humble opinion. With the city boasting with so many options to chose from, it can get a little overwhelming sometimes.

Located in the heart of one of the city's most bustling terrasse-filled areas, HPG is an absolute oasis for those who want to be part of the action in a more intimate setting, because you and your friends can actually rent it out and have a secret garden all to yourselves! The website recommends using the space for a 5 à 7, brunch, picnic, summer party, dinner or BBQ.
The garden comes with a covered kitchen and bar, ample tables, a lounge and so much more to take any occasion to the next level. You do have to bring your own food and drinks, but you also have the option to bring in your own catering team.
The garden is available to rent for the day ($1,500), a half-day ($700) or by the hour ($10 per person, but not private). It's a huge 4,000-square-foot space, and the hotel allows up to 30 people, so you can always split the cost. A half-day for 30 works out to about $23 per person.
