So, it's Christmas time and you finally got a few days of work but so did everyone else in town! Everything is pretty much closed. Everyone is spending time with their families which is fantastic but, let's be real, that doesn't last all night and you probably need a drink after that. You could also not celebrate Christmas for whatever reason. Luckily a few Montreal bars remain open in order to celebrate Jesus' birthday the right way. Here's a rundown of a few spots open today and tomorrow!
