Have an evening out. Of the country.
We can give you a taste of foreign nightlife and get you home in time for breakfast. (Lunch?) Montréal, like most of Canada’s major cities is less than 100 miles from the border.
We’ll get you off to a soaring start at Altitude 737, the Place Ville Marie’s sky-scraping bar-restaurant. The visibility, weather permitting, approaches 90 miles. Weather not permitting, order another 5-ounce martini and the visibility won’t matter. You can dance there after 9 pm… or go on to other exotic rooftops around town like L’Escapade or Le Panorama.
Do something French. Take 4 hours over dinner (that’s very French) and save your diet for some other city. Go to see a French satirical revue. Listen to French-Canadian folk-rock. Visit Place des Arts and see live French theatre.
Don’t turn around and go home after you’ve see Niagara Falls. Go to Toronto for the evening. Visit Yorkville Village, a 3-block square compendium of schmaltzy Viennese coffee houses, discotheques, boutiques, and strange sights. Find out what’s playing at the O’Keefe Centre. It regularly hosts pre-Broadway and London performances.
Vancouver has the second-biggest China-town in North America. Stroll through it for oriental rarities. Have dinner at Lila Chen’s Lotus Gardens. Check what’s on at the Theatre under the Stars in Stanley Park. Those are real mountains in the background!
Canada is one of the few remaining countries that serve buffalo steak flambé in cognac.
How do you know you don’t care – you’ve never tried it.
You need to regain your sense of adventure. Tonight isn’t too soon.
— The Chateau Champlain’s Caf’ Conc’ in Montréal is like a Toulouse Lautrec poster. All gilt, red velvet and dancing girls. A Paris music hall at the turn of the century. How much will this evening cost?
