Montreal is known to attract a lot of A-list Hollywood celebrities when they're shooting a movie in our wonderful city or are visiting for Grand Prix F1 festivities like other regular tourists. I think that Montreal is much more celebrity friendly than, let's say, New York city, where celebrities can't leave their hotel rooms without being harassed by paparazzis. I personally bumped into numerous celebrities in Montreal who were just casually strolling the streets of Downtown and Old Port like any other non-famous human beings.
3518 Boul St-Laurent
Legendary restaurant/club located on St-Laurent street has seen plenty of celebs over the years. Just to give you a little example, that's Justin Bieber, ladies. Hyperventilation mode: ON.
Garde Manger is a happening spot in the Old Montreal area where I've personally witnessed a whole bunch of famous people casually enjoying dinner and drinks without being bothered by anyone. Here's a photo I found of Jenson Button, a very handsome Formula 1 driver.
This trendy downtown resto-bar is a go-to celebrity spot thanks to its convenient proximity to Bell centre. The photo above illustrates the best day of my life - I got to meet and have dinner with Anthony Kiedis from Red Hot Chilli Peppers, yeah...
Jatoba is a refined modern eatery serving Asian inspired dishes. As for the photo - I just had to post it... because I know y'all will appreciate this. Justin Trudeau and his wife seem to really like Jatoba.
Montreal's iconic Greenspot Restaurant is selling hot dogs for 74 cents this weekend, September 18 and 19, to celebrate its 74th anniversary.
On Facebook, the Saint-Henri eatery says it's converting its small parking lot on avenue Greene into a picnic area for the event.
And the wiener fun doesn't stop there. Greenspot is having a contest on its Instagram page where followers have the chance to win 74 hot dogs — a prize they can redeem at their discretion.
The restaurant invites followers to share the Instagram post and tag three friends to enter the contest.
Daily two-for-one deals have also been part of the 74th-anniversary celebrations.
Dating back to 1947, Greenspot serves American and Quebec diner classics (including a long list of hearty poutines) amid retro decor (including individual table jukeboxes — they don't work but they're super charming!).
Get the details on the 74th-anniversary hot dog deal below.
