Montreal's Beautiful "Floating Bar" Is Officially Open For The Summer

Sometimes it's easy to forget that Montreal is an Island. But take a quick trip down to the Old Port or the Lachine Canal and you will be quickly reminded that we are surrounded by water.

This is something that Montrealers should take advantage of. There are plenty of water sports and activities that can be done by the waterside all summer long.  Nothing lifts the spirits quite like a day on the water.

That said, one Montreal business has successfully fused boating and happy hour by refurbishing a beautiful 42-year-old glass top boat and converting it to Montreal's only floating bar.

GOOD NEWS: the Canal Lounge has officially opened! 

Considering it's a beautiful day, why not head down to Canal Lachine for a little 5 a 7.

Here is a little clip of the boat being transported to the water for its seasonal kick-off.

Not only can you sit inside this beautiful and majestic boat and enjoy a couple rounds of specialty cocktails, the boat also serves a menu of light meals. So you can even stay for "dinner".

For more information on Canal Lounge, check out their Facebook page HERE and Instagram HERE.
