Terrasse season is probably Montreal’s most anticipated season of the year. We shed our shearlings as hemlines rise to show off tanned legs in slinky strappy sandals while designer tanktops let the guns out when the sun’s out. From day drinking to 5à7, the best bars, hotels and restaurants in the city open their rooftops, windows and doors to fresh air and sweet smell of summer.

Newtown’s terrasse is clearly one of the best ways to make the most of your summer.
