Let’s face it, Montreal has figured out what’s important in life: having a drink or a meal on a terrasse with a few friends. The return of the patios and terrasses is in full force with the wooden, sidewalk and street claiming spaces being hammered together as I type. The Latin Quarter with Le St. Sulpice, L’Ile Noir, Loup Garou, L’Abreuvoir, and plenty of restaurants is prime spot for sitting and watching the world go by. To mark the occasion, La Société de développement du Quartier latin (SDQL) is hosting a two-day event with music brought by the lovely folks from Osheaga.

 

Line ups on both nights start at 6 p.m and end at 11 p.m. Things begin on May 25th with Mort Rose, Clay and Friends, Poirier Migration Soundsystem, and finally Boogat. On May 26th, catch Kae Sun, Louize, Soran, and finally Aliocha make the night.

While the music is on, there are also activities. Play a little mini golf or enjoy all kinds of animated events. It will be, as you might expect, a good time.
