Enjoy the view from these rooftop patios in Montreal

Accustomed to long, cold and snowy winters, Montrealers know how to enjoy a hot sunny day: with a cold beer at one of the city's numerous open-air terraces. What a view! Here are some suggestions.

Terrasse Place d'Armes

8-701 Côte de la Place d'Armes, Montréal, QC H2Y 3X2

The Hôtel et Suites Place d’Armes rooftop terrace offers truly incomparable views of Old Montreal, Downtown, and the Place d'Armes square. You can have dinner, share a meal with a lover or friends, and stay up late. Very late. On weekends, the venue is open until 3am. That’s how you make summer last even longer!

Terrasse sur L'Auberge

97 rue de la Commune E, Montréal, QC H2Y 1J1

With rue Saint-Paul on one side, and Old Montreal and the majestic St. Lawrence River on the other; what more can one ask for when sharing a cocktail or tasty meal with friends, colleagues, or lovers? This cozy terrace can hold a hundred guests. All that’s left is to order a Sangria, Cosmo, or Pink Watermelon Rosé.

SIX Resto Lounge

1255 Rue Jeanne-Mance, Montréal, QC H5B 1E5

Six for 6th floor: this is where the Montreal Hyatt Regency terrace is located; the ideal place to enjoy the many festivals the city is privy to. You’ll find it in the heart of the Quartier des spectacles, where all the action happens. But no need to celebrate: you can go there to relax with a glass of red wine.

Sky Resto Pub

1488, rue Sainte-Catherine E, Montréal, QC H2L 2J1

Club Sky offers the gay and lesbian community a venue that is "different and inviting", and its terrace is no exception. The huge rooftop boasts a pool, spa, restaurant, and mini-bars. Having everything on hand is necessary to enjoy the view of downtown and south-east Montreal.

And it's a sixth time in a row for the MTLàTABLE festival, playing matchmaker between foodies and Montreal’s fine food establishments.
