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

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.
The garden comes with a covered kitchen and bar, ample tables, a lounge and so much more to take any occasion to the next level. You do have to bring your own food and drinks, but you also have the option to bring in your own catering team.
The garden is available to rent for the day ($1,500), a half-day ($700) or by the hour ($10 per person, but not private). It's a huge 4,000-square-foot space, and the hotel allows up to 30 people, so you can always split the cost. A half-day for 30 works out to about $23 per person.
The event name, Sudbest, perfectly captures the goal of the event. Organizers call it the Sud-Ouest's "largest commercial revival initiative," bringing forward as many of the borough's merchants, artists and artisans as possible.
"The Market is intended to be a tailor-made economic stimulus tool for artists and merchants in the Sud-Ouest by giving them a commercial opportunity to promote themselves as part of an event reflecting the neighborhood," said restauranteur Gaelle Cerf, one of the event leaders, in a statement.
At the market, you can expect to find a 100% Quebec wine and cider bar run by the owners of the new convenience store Le Cinq à Sept (Ville-Émard), a bloody caesars bar at Lord William Pub and a "post-pandemic" beer made specially for the event by 4 Origines Microbrewery.
You'll find food trucks, a Perles et Paddock oyster bar, jerk chicken grilled by Boom J, Food'elles and more.
At this month's event, DJ Kelly (Rap Mommies) will be spinning on Saturday from noon to 10 p.m. On Sunday, you'll find Jazz St-Henri, 99 Wolves, and ELMNT at the DJ booth.

The third and final (for now) Sudbest weekend is scheduled for September 25 and 26.
