It's Official, Smoking Ban On Terrasses In Montreal Begins This May

Summer certainly won't be as enjoyable for the cigarette-smokers of Montreal (which is almost everyone) as the smoking ban on terrasses is officially coming into effect quite soon. And with this current weather, it looks like smokers might only have one or two days to enjoy a smoke and a drink in the sun before it becomes illegal.

Announced on the Association des restaurateurs du Québec website, smoking anything on a terrasse (cigarette, vap, joint) in Montreal will be banned as of May 26th, 2016.

Some may have thought that in a city with such a strong smoking culture, that this would ever happen, but alas, it is has.

Shouts of "this totally sucks" rang out in our office when everyone was reminded of the smoking ban announced last year, and no doubt many of you will feel the same.

Sorry, smokers, but it is a lost battle.

For non-smokers like myself, we can't help but be mildly happy that having to deal with second-hand smoke while enjoying a pint on a terrasse will be a thing of the past, but I doubt you really want to hear that. Sorry not sorry.

New City Gas is now home to a restaurant, market, art galleries and first-of-its-kind NFT gallery.

Dreaming of an escape to the Mediterranean or to Tulum in Mexico? All you have to do is head to Griffintown's New City Gas to experience Bazart, a new concept that brings culture, culinary creations and some well-deserved good vibes to Montreal.

I checked out the opening night of the experience and can honestly say it was one of the coolest things I've done in the city.
