Montréal’s Best Winter Rooftop Bars
Montréal’s rooftop terraces are the backbone of the spring and summer cocktail scene, but did you know some are open all year long? Enjoy your warm toddy with a view this winter at one of these stunning, heated rooftop venues.
Zen at the top of the world
Get a wintry view to remember at the Sommet of Place Ville Marie, at the very top of one of downtown Montréal’s tallest and most storied buildings. It’s a stunning spot for a special evening, but also in the mornings—how about a yoga session in the sky?
Feast on fusion on the rooftop
Le Jatoba is a Japanese fusion restaurant right downtown with a four-season rooftop terrace. Delight your senses with butterfish sashimi and Alaskan crab with five-spice from your charming heated spot out of doors!
Take is easy at this speakeasy
The delectable cocktails at the hidden 4e mur taste even better under the rooftop canopy. This heated terrace on Saint-Denis feels like a secret hangout, a jazzy-ambianced spot just for you and your friends—and a plate of charcuteries.
Get grub at a glass-topped pub
Burgundy Lion’s new all-season rooftop terrace makes this multi-level pub even more of a destination in Little Burgundy. The deck furniture and walls-full of plants make it feel fresh and green all winter long, even when the snow piles into the glass roof overhead!
