Montreal restaurants for a girls’ night out

There are few things more enjoyable than a night out with the ladies. We had the chance to chat with Quebec singer Sally Folk and get her top picks for where to hang out with her girlfriends in Montreal. Here’s what she had to tell us. [Image credit: iStock.com/monkeybusinessimages]

Le Smoking Vallée

1
4370 rue Notre-Dame O, Montréal, QC H4C 1R8

What a great spot for a first date or a catch-up with friends! Be sure to reserve well in advance and to bring your own wine.

Wellington Apportez Votre Vin

2
3629, rue Wellington, Verdun, QC H4G 1T9

This is a great place for an impromptu evening, where the dining is simple but excellent. Best to snag a reservation on weekends.

Pub Burgundy Lion

3
2496, rue Notre-Dame O, Montréal, QC H3J 1N5

You’ll end up befriending everyone by the end of an evening at this British pub on Notre-Dame. Try the fish and chips and their signature poutine! This place also offers brunch on weekends.

Les Iles En Ville

4
5335, rue Wellington, Verdun, QC H4H 1N3

This spot is perfect for when you’re in need of a change of scenery. The menu, as well as the ambiance, is inspired by les Îles-de-la-Madeleines. The team here is fabulous and very friendly.

Ste-Cunegonde Drinkery

5
2661, rue Notre-Dame O, Montréal, QC H3J 1N9

La Drinkerie is for those happy hours that don’t end until the wee hours of the morning. I also have a soft spot for the DJ on Thursday evenings – DJ Wordy Word. Come by at any hour, and find a casual, young professional crowd. A small appetizer menu is available, as are some main dishes.

Bar A Tapas Tapeo

6
511, rue Villeray, Montréal, QC H2R 1H5

I went to the opening to this small tapas restaurant a few years ago and I’ve been back a number of times with my girlfriends – it’s always a good time! A must-try in Villeray.

Chez Boss & Fils

7
3610, rue Wellington, Verdun, QC H4G 1T6

I’m so happy I discovered this hip new restaurant in Verdun. The owners are very nice and provide excellent service that will make your night that much better. Not to be missed!

Grinder

8
1708 rue Notre-Dame O, Montréal, QC H3J 1M3

Grinder is hopping from the 5 à 7 to the end of the evening, and especially after a Habs game. They have a beautiful terrace.

Le Bateau Mouche

9
55 rue Saint-Paul O, Montréal, QC H2Y 1Z1

Try Bateau-Mouche for a lovely summer evening cruise in the Old Port of Montreal – close your eyes and you’re on vacation! The top-notch personnel and service make the evening even more special.
