5 à 7 on Saint-Laurent Boulevard, where to go? The expression “5 à 7” comes from the English word “happy hour”, and it can be very happy indeed! Happy hour is the time right after work when people get together with friends or colleagues to have a drink, chat, and unwind. Well loved and appreciated, people often go meet for happy hours at bars, and they are often the beginning of great encounters.

Montreal is a city full of great restaurants and bars. We have a section dedicated to happy hours in the city. Since we have our offices on the boulevard – or the Main – it was only natural for us to offer you a list of good addresses, to discover or rediscover, on this artery that has been revived in recent years.

Indeed, as its common name – the Main – suggests, Saint-Laurent Boulevard is a cultural, creative and innovative hub that is alive day and night. Located in the heart of Montreal, the Plateau Mont-Royal remains one of the most accessible neighbourhoods in the city, whether by car, bike, metro or by foot. St. Laurent Boulevard is one of the most important arteries, running from Old Montreal to the north of the island. World cuisine, entertainment venues, bars and lively nightclubs, you will make surprising discoveries here, meet great people and find perfect places for celebrations. Enjoy discovering this wonderful, distinctively Montreal thoroughfare!

Le Darling

Le Darling is a perfect place to hang out or have a drink at any time of the day. It’s as much about having a coffee and a pastry in the morning as it is about having a bottle of wine with a plate of charcuterie or one of their excellent dishes at the end of the day. In the kitchen is Chef Alejandro Vega (Jun I, Bouillon Bilk, Cadet) who prepares delicious plates to share. Photos Alison Slattery – Instagram

Big in Japan Bar is certainly one of the most beautiful hidden bars in Montreal. From the outside, there’s no telling what’s behind the anonymous brown door.

New address along Saint-Laurent Boulevard, the Roseline is a cafe-bar open from 8am to midnight. The decor offers a trip back in time to the Montreal of the 30’s with a vintage decor and a subdued atmosphere. Throughout the day we stop for a coffee break with a pastry. When evening falls, we go there to relax with a good glass of wine or a refreshing cocktail. photos by Roseline
