Montreal's "Harry Potter" Themed Bar Is Hosting A Magical Wand-Making Workshop This Month

A little over a year ago, the Montreal resto-bar scene was blessed with a new bar unlike anything it has ever seen before. A Harry Potter-themed bar opened up in town, and people went crazy for it.

The Lockhart bar is located on Saint Denis street in the heart of the Plateau.

This bar — with another location in Toronto  is dedicated to the world of Harry Potter, but not in a tacky over-the-top in-your-face kind of way. It's much more subtle and nuanced than that. In short, there's nothing child-ish looking about this bar.

Here's What's Open & What's Closed On Labour Day In Montreal

There are still a ton of things to do this Monday holiday!
  • Here's a short list of what's open and what's closed on Labour Day in Montreal.
  • If you're heading out, make sure to call ahead to your destination to inquire about reduced hours.

Yes, it's a long weekend! Three uninterrupted days to relax, have fun, and not think for two seconds about things like school or work, or other responsibilities until Tuesday morning. Not to be too depressing but it will be six weeks before we get another official long weekend. 

But let's focus on the positive! This is usually one of the summer weekends that people are trying to pack in their last days of camping or chalet time. But if you're planning to stay in the city it's good to know what's open and what's closed so you can plan out your Labour Day weekend.
