Montreal is full of everything you can ever imagine. From world-renowned eateries to picturesque parks, the city has never been lacking in things to do. But, some of us prefer to discover the parts of our city that aren't as popular. So, we're here to help you seek out Montreal's secret spots.
We all know those ultra photographed spots, whether they be restaurants, clubs, or even parks. But how many of you have dug into those hidden gems that make our city what it is?
From vintage stores and burger joints to parks and cafés, there are so many one-of-a-kind places that you can't help but fall in love with, if you know they're there, that is.
Instead of following Insta trends, why not be a trendsetter by posting at one of MTL's lesser-known, epic spots.
UPDATE: The Government of Quebec has introduced new COVID-19 health measures since this article was published. Please review guidelines and double-check the website and social media pages of the event or activity before you head out. We strongly recommend calling before you go.
Why You Should Go: Indoor gatherings are limited to six people right now, so call your besties up and plan a little shindig at one of your apartments. No better way to start the New Year than with your closest people.
Address: 463, rue Sainte-Catherine O., Montreal, QC
Why you should go: Three similar interactive works, titled Les Diamants, will spend the holiday season on the front lawn of St. James United Church. You spin them around to enjoy a little light and sound show.
