Kampai is Montreal’s new lovechild by A5 Hospitality (known for their notably hip decor and great vibes) and Japanese cuisine chef Antonio Park. It’s the perfect spot to grab some drinks before you hit the… you know… other kinds of bars. The space at Kampai has been described as industrial-organic: an overload of green plant and exposed piping two floors, sexy dark tones but also rustic and cozy notes… it’s an outstanding space with so many lounging options: lounge chairs, sofas, pink stools.. you can easily come here with a big group and sit together, or mingle comfortably in different sections of the gigantic Asian style beer garden.

It’s actually a favourite summer activity amongst locals, so here’s a tip to skip the line: call before you go and order in advance! Magic. Nearby is La Banquise, another popular spot (perhaps because they’re open 24/7). This restaurant is also the largest, which means it can accept big groups at a moments notice.

3. Chill in a park and have a beer
It’s beautiful, free, and fun! This is probably why many Montrealers do this every weekend. Parc Lafontaine, Parc Laurier, and Parc Mont-Royal are all great spots to lounge around.

If you want some extra fun and are into ping-pong or petanque, Parc Laurier’s got your back.
2.*We Apologize in Advance* Have a 10$ daytime lap dance!
Many strip clubs and bars are open during the day! Why not have a quick dance and laugh with your pals? Of course, it won’t be the 10/10 girls, but you’re doing it for the laugh not the ass. We can’t guarantee your satisfaction on this one unfortunately! Pro tip: club Super Sex has a “free” buffet during the day. Cut down those costs…?
