And one perfect example of a brand new spot that's also unique AF? Montreal's Le Bird Bar (1800 Rue Notre-Dame O), located in Griffintown.

This restaurant specializes in fried chicken and champagne, served in a super gorgeous and contemporary setting.

And, trust, they've got some seriously good fried chicken... and some seriously innovative fried chicken dishes, too.

For example, they've got vegan fried chicken (covered in a crispy, perfectly seasoned crust), fresh oysters with popcorn chicken legit inside the oyster... and some incredibly tasty chicken and waffles.

That's right, friends. Bird Bar's scrumptious, tender, juicy fried chicken placed on top of fluffy and tasty waffles.

It's served up with a maple sriracha sauce, and a side of watermelon feta mint salad. Is there anything better?

No. Of course not. Lovers of chicken and waffles, rejoice.

As a Montrealer, there's nothing I love more than a good 5 à 7 (especially in the summer) and discovering a secret spot somewhere in the city. That's why I was so excited when I stumbled upon l'Hôtel Particulier Griffintown (HPG)'s Secret Garden.

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.

OK, so I have this conversation with my friends EVERY weekend in the summer. Whenever we want to go out and have a glass of sangria or cocktail together, we always have this problem trying to find somewhere to go depending on how far we want to travel and which place is on our "day-drunk" bucket list. Are we in the mood to stay Downtown or venture to the Plateau? Then the question arises umm.... what place has the best day drunk specials?
