Montreal is full of good-looking guys and gorgeous girls. On any given night along the trendy Saint-Laurent Blvd, you can’t help but notice the Globe -- A trendy, fashionable people-watching spot. Its modern but old-world bistro decor matches the “see and be seen” attitude that the Globe is dripping with. Be sure to make reservations as the Globe is always packed. If you do have to wait for a table, you’ll be ushered to the bar where you can sample a Martini or two.

Also on Saint-Laurent Blvd is a hot spot that could be in Manhattan’s Soho neighborhood. Buona Notte is arguably one of Montreal’s trendiest locations being more of a club experience than a simple restaurant. Open till late the house DJ spins the latest beats that accompany your fine Italian meal. The later the evening gets the faster the beats are pumped out. If you want to sample great food, dine with beautiful people or perhaps rub elbows with celebrities, Buona Notte is the place to be.
