Where to Eat Late: Montreal’s best “late-night eats”

Bars and restaurants where to eat late are places where the kitchens close after 22:00!

It is becoming increasingly rare to find late night eats in the city. The famous labor shortage is certainly behind the shortening of service hours. In this list, you will find restaurants open until 23:00, midnight, or even all night for some.

We present you today the various Montreal Institutions, izakayas, bars and breweries and restaurants of all kinds where you can be served late in the evening, and in some cases, in the middle of the night.

Our list of bars and restaurants where to eat late, or Montreal’s best “late night eats”:

BarBara Vin

BarBara Vin has an elaborate menu that has something to satisfy every nighttime craving. Pasta, fish, plump polpettes, Matane shrimps and the classic antipasti of olives, parmesan fries and charcuterie, to name a few, will leave you wanting more after a few drinks. The place does not take reservations, first come, first served!  

4450 Rue Notre-Dame Ouest

Isle de Garde

Known and loved for its beer, the Isle de Garde Brewery also has a full menu that goes beyond fries and burgers. While those classics are on the menu, dishes range from grilled octopus to fresh ricotta pasta to buffalo tartare.

1039 Rue Beaubien Est


Newly opened and already a crowd pleaser, the new kid on the block in Chinatown is as beautiful as it is good. It offers an Italian menu with Japanese-inspired touches. Arancini with sushi rice, tonkotsu lasagna and pizza offered in six variations with habanero and yuzu sauce.  

989 Boulevard Saint-Laurent

Brasserie Harricana 

Not far from the Jean-Talon market is the superb Brasserie Harricana. We love the place for its beautiful decor, outstanding craft beers, inventive ciders and its comfort food menu – snacks, appetizers, small plates, salads and more substantial dishes such as club sandwiches, burgers, lobster rolls, and more – offered until late every night. The establishment is one of the most beautiful microbreweries in Montreal. At Brasserie Harricana, you eat and drink very well.

95 Rue Jean-Talon Ouest

Bar Henrietta

Bar Henrietta is a beautiful neighbourhood bar where you can eat and drink very well and affordably, especially for Laurier Street West. Located in the former Baldwin Barmacie, Bar Henrietta welcomes you into a 60’s tavern-inspired setting. Here you can enjoy excellent wines, classic and house cocktails, and the bar offers a fantastic food menu available until 3am most days of the week. We come here for the lively music and the casual yet festive atmosphere. Note that the writer is madly in love with one of the owners of this establishment. It closed temporarily during the pandemic.

Bar Loïc

In a magnificent building that is over 100 years old, the team of dynamic young people behind Loïc have opened what is now the most popular bar in the West End. Think of Loïc as a warm and welcomingly sleek snack bar. Here, you can now enjoy a short menu by Liam Barron to pair with a glass from their finely curated list of natural, organic, and/or biodynamic wines, mostly from private imports, that changes regularly. They also have excellent cocktails and a very interesting whisky selection. Photo by Matthew Perrin

Buvette Chez Simone

Buvette Chez Simone is a pioneer in the category of “bars with great food”. Montreal’s classic bar offers generous dishes to share in a festive atmosphere. We love the Buvette for its relaxed yet lively atmosphere at all times. The service here is warm, the atmosphere always vibrant, and the glasses of wine are priced right. We eat delicious dishes such as their famous chicken (whole or half), fries, Greek salads, cheeses, charcuteries, or regular specials, offered until late every night of the week.

Rouge Gorge

Rouge-Gorge is one of the busiest wine bars in town. Located in the heart of the Plateau Mont-Royal, you’ll be tasting more than just good wine until late. The kitchen closes at midnight on weekdays, but serves until 1am on weekends.
