What to Do.
Wade wistfully through galleries of classic masterpieces, Canadian contemporary art and more.
The Underground City
A web of boutiques, food courts, and other amenities linked together by underground passageways.
The Old Port & La Grande Roue
The oldest part of Montreal now features a ferris wheel that provides a romantic view of the city – especially at night.
St. Joseph's Oratory & Mount Royal
A pilgrimage site for Catholics from around the world. The adjacent Mount Royal arguably boasts the best view of the city.
Montreal Museum of Fine Arts
Home to the city's LGBTQ+ bars, restaurants and shops. Ste-Catherine Street is a pedestrian walkway.
Where to Eat.
Montréal is home to a plethora of ethnic communities from around the globe, which has consequently created a gastronomic culinary scene favoured by many, including late celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain. Allow yourself to shoot the breeze over cocktails on a terrasse along Crescent Street, or debate approaches to combating the illicit arms trade as you bite into one of the city's world-renowned bagels. Spend your evenings burning off famed delicacies with a stroll down the cobblestone streets of Old Montréal, or head to a club on St. Laurent to dance the night into the morning.
Montreal Pool Room
Revered old-school joint famous for its Montréal-style hot dogs & fries (& for not having pool tables).

A renowned breakfast joint popular for its smoothies and its antique, 1942 decor.
Fairmount Bagel & St. Viateur Bagel
Two rival bagels shops serve as the city's mainstay for a fresh dozen. And yes, they're better than New York bagels. There's no debate.
A bologna and mustard sandwich served in a hundred-year old family-run hole-in-the-wall in the Mile End.
Opened in 1967, and open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, La Banquise offers a range of poutines from classic to unorthodox. From La Savoyarde, which features Swiss cheese, onions and sour cream, to La Reggae which counts guacamole and tomatoes among its many toppings, a pitstop here will be without a doubt a highlight of a brief Montreal getaway.
