Summer has well and truly made its grand entrance in Montreal.The sun is out, the temperature is consistently sitting in the high 20s and 30s and the humidity is making itself extremely well-known to those of us who have to style our hair in the morning.
With all of this hot weather headed our way, we're all looking for somewhere to sit, relax, and cool down (preferably with an ice-cold drink in our hands). If you've spent a fair few summers in Montreal, you probably already have a favourite terrasse or air-conditioned bar to chill out in. But if you're looking for somewhere new to head, or if you've already exhausted the city's current options, there's one terrasse you've probably not hit up yet that you definitely should: Montreal Casino's Terrasse Le Jardin.
The outdoor patio area is open every weekend this summer and boasts an airy, festive atmosphere in the heart of a peaceful island park. Not only does it serve chilled cocktails and colourful sangria (a summer must-have), it also offers some pretty awesome deals!
On Thursdays, Terrasse Le Jardin has free comedy shows open to anyone and everyone. Planning on spending the night sipping drinks or munching away at bar food? You'll have talented comedians making you laugh all night, with two chances to catch a seriously hilarious comedy show at 7:00pm and 9:00pm.
Rather head over on a Friday? Terrasse Le Jardin celebrates TGIF with a 4:00pm opening and live music starting at 9:30pm. Saturdays also boast live bands as well as an all-you-can-eat barbeque from 5:00pm until 9:30pm. All you have to do is find yourself a spot and settle in for a nice summer evening.
And for those of you who don't know when the party stops (or those of you who just enjoy a casual Sunday patio lunch), the terrasse extends the pleasure by staying open on Sundays, starting at 1:00pm.
With plenty of seating, Insta-perfect decorations and umbrellas for shade, Montreal Casino's Terrasse Le Jardin is definitely one spot you don't want to miss this summer. Terrasse like a pro this season and head to one seriously amazing terrasse!
