Montreal by Night for the Mature Crowd

Let’s face it; when we go out these days, as much as it’s always a trip to relive the glory days of university, the reality is that we are all more so looking for a good time amongst other young professionals with the option to meet some interesting people in and around our own ages. Knowing that this is an important part of the socializing experience for our readers, we have conjured up a list of places where you are sure to mingle and bump into people in the 25 and older age range.

Baldwin Barmacie115 Laurier West
This cool little lounge in Outrement has been a hot spot for young professional over 25 for almost a decade now. You will find some of the trendiest and most successful Montrealers, letting loose, enjoying good, unique music and drinking amazing cocktails until the wee hours of the morning. Whether it be for a big night out or simply an after work drink with friends, this place is where it’s at for a swanky good time.  

Pullman Wine Bar3424 Parc
For a chill evening with some good friends (and great wine), head to Pullman Wine Bar for a laid-back, yet upscale evening. Try a bunch of their amazing wines, snack on their delicious tapas menu, and rest assured that you will not, despite the location, be amongst college kids. 

Garde Manger408 Saint Francois Xavier
We’ve talked much about Garde Manger in our most notable restaurant listings, the most notable happenings come after midnight at this cozy Old Port hot spot. Once dinner is over, the DJs arrive and the restaurant turns into one of the hottest and exclusive parties in the city.

Bar Waverly5550 St. Laurent
Located on one of the most prime corners in the city (St. Laurent and St. Viateur), this is yet another spot that keeps coming up for us in our most notable lists. This fairly new neighborhood bar offers a very cool LA vibe in a hot area where the most notable 25+ Mile Enders come to drink, dance and mingle on the daily. Whether it’s a Tuesday night or a Friday night, this place is always bumping with some of the coolest DJ sets and best drinks in the city.
