It comes as no surprise that Montreal is known to as a city full of young people. Afterall, we are home to at least four major universities, and not to mention several reputed techincal colleges and institutions.
TL;DR Nestpick a German apartment search engine ranked 150 different countries for a recent study, and Montreal has ranked #1 city in Canada "for the millennial generation" and also #2 worldwide. Toronto and Vancouver also made it into the top 10 and ranked at 5th and 6th place respectively.
We all intuitively know that Montreal has established itself on the global map as being the perfect city for young people.
Now, our intuition has been confirmed because Montreal has - once again - ranked #2 "best cities for the millennial generation" in the world by Nestpick a German apartment search engine. That makes them #1 in Canada!
Nestpick looked at 17 different factors to determine the rankings: work, affordability, openness and fun. Those are all pretty good things to be known for.
You can drop this knowledge at your next dinner party for a lively conversation and debate.
While there are a million and one spots to enjoy a 5 à 7 in the city, not everywhere does happy hour quite like this Montreal restaurant in the Village.
Resto Keela serves $6 drinks from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., including house draft beer, house red or white wine, and speed rail mixed drinks, which is a choice of vodka, rye, rum, or gin — a pretty hard drink deal to beat.
As for food, you can go every week and try a different $6 dish at happy hour. "The $6 bites change from week to week but we always offer 3-5 options," owners Kristin Murphy and Johnny Hamilton told MTL Blog.
I went on September 10 and got to try green beans with a cashew romesco sauce and feta crumble, chorizo sausage, chicken Kaarage with kimchi cucumbers, and organic cherry tomato salad with blue cheese. And I kid you not when I say these dishes all take your taste buds on a culinary trip to heaven.
Keela's full menu is also filled with tons of unique dishes for you to try. The celery root carpaccio is hands down my favourite.
Every Friday night, you can hear the sweet voice of Bud Rice sing live at the restaurant.
