Us Montreal locals are blessed with so many amazing boroughs and I think we can all agree that Saint Henri is one of the city’s trendiest and coolest neighbourhoods.
Saint Henri has become home to many of the cities best barsand restaurants. There are so many options in the area that at times, it can be a little overwhelming.
However, I can say with confidence, that there is no bar in the area, or the city for that matter, that offers its clients with the same amenities as Riverside St Henri, especially not in the summer.
Throughout the much-needed heat, we have all been desperately craving a place like Riverside St. Henri where you can go and cool off with a delicious cocktail or a nice refreshing beer.
The open-air environment, which is nestled along the famous Lachine Canal, is a dream spot for any locals looking to enjoy our amazing, yet short summer. Although this bar is open all year round, the summer really is their time to shine.
Not only can you and your friends play foosball or arcadegames, but every corner is insanely photogenic, making it a great spot for that perfect Instagram shot you have been needing.
If you are not already sold, just wait.
Riverside also has a beach area with a volleyball and basketball court and where you can play. I mean how cool is that!
As if this bar didn’t offer enough, they also allow for you to come with your four-legged bestie. Not only do they accept dogs, they love dogs on their terrace!
Who knew that there was a bar with a beach where you can play volleyball in Montreal with your dog, while enjoying a cold brew?
Summer time in Montreal just got even better!

When: Every Thursday to Sunday from 1 pm to 3 am
Why go? Great cocktails at a dog-friendly bar that has beach-volleyball courts, foosball and more.
The custom airstream company in Montreal said Madonna's 1975 Airstream Sovereign 31' vehicle was designed in the likeness of a five-star hotel, featuring a custom leather couch and matching armchairs, retractable 50-inch TV monitors, a minibar and ice bin, heated floors, a tufted wall with custom light fixtures, a top-of-the-line sound system and custom under-carriage lights.
The RV even converts into a cigar lounge, built with a custom humidor and commercial air purifiers.
The price tag? A cool $200,000 USD. And Custom Airstream said other custom builds could cost up to $500,000 USD.
It's not the first time the Montreal-based camper customization company has worked with Madge. It also partnered with her on a "personal project" she hosted in the Hamptons in 2014.
"We're beyond excited to be part of Madonna's fun family moment," said a statement by David Schirmer, vice-president of sales and marketing at Custom Airstream.
"We woke up to a flood of phone calls, email and social media messages. People have been knocking down our door – it's been overwhelming in the best way possible. It's such an honour for our humble Québec company to add a little magic to Madonna's American Life!"
