There's A Hidden Bar On This Island 1 Hour From Montreal & It Looks Like Paradise (VIDEO)

We've officially found one of the coolest gems near Montreal: this hidden bar on an island in Lake Saint-François.

At Ile Raymond, in the municipality of Sainte-Barbe, you can enjoy a restaurant outing with an incredible view of the water's edge. You'll be able to sip tasty cocktails like an amaretto sour and a bloody caesar, or even just a beer — without forgetting the spot's special shots.

Ile Raymond opens on Friday, June 18, and the restaurant will be open every week from Thursday to Sunday starting at noon, weather permitting.

To get there, you can board the shuttle bus from the waterfront parking lot. To do so, you must use the golden telephone located next to the Ile Raymond sign to request a pickup. The island also has a dock for those who have their own boat.

To access the island, all you have to do is pay a $20 fee per person, which gives you access to the round-trip shuttle, the entrance to the island and a welcome drink.
