Anyone living in Montreal has felt creeped the F*CK out at least once while waiting for the metro. Whether it be the pure fact that you're alone, or some creep who just keeps getting closer and closer, we can all agree that some metro stations are scarier than others.
I take the metro at least twice every day, especially late at night, and I can honestly say that I get scared on the daily. My tactic is usually to try and ignore it, but when someone is punching the wall and starts walking towards you at midnight on a Saturday while waiting at LaSalle metro, you can't really help but say "OH FUCK NO" in your head.
So, based on my friends' personal experiences, as well as my own, here are some of the scariest Montreal metro stations you REALLY don't want to be alone at.
While there are a million and one spots to enjoy a 5 à 7 in the city, not everywhere does happy hour quite like this Montreal restaurant in the Village.
Resto Keela serves $6 drinks from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., including house draft beer, house red or white wine, and speed rail mixed drinks, which is a choice of vodka, rye, rum, or gin — a pretty hard drink deal to beat.
As for food, you can go every week and try a different $6 dish at happy hour. "The $6 bites change from week to week but we always offer 3-5 options," owners Kristin Murphy and Johnny Hamilton told MTL Blog.
I went on September 10 and got to try green beans with a cashew romesco sauce and feta crumble, chorizo sausage, chicken Kaarage with kimchi cucumbers, and organic cherry tomato salad with blue cheese. And I kid you not when I say these dishes all take your taste buds on a culinary trip to heaven.
Keela's full menu is also filled with tons of unique dishes for you to try. The celery root carpaccio is hands down my favourite.
Every Friday night, you can hear the sweet voice of Bud Rice sing live at the restaurant.
