Marc Bungarten is the owner at infamous Montréal bar, Bar Henrietta. It’s obvious that Marc is plugged into what’s happening in the city and he speaks enthusiastically and with an authentic sense of civic pride. Bungarten doesn’t plug his own bar, he doesn’t plug his friends’ club, he simply shares the best side of Montréal because he genuinely wants visitors to enjoy the city.
Quebec is like North America meets Europe. It’s easy to live in a place like Montréal or Québec City. It’s not expensive to live here. There are a lot of people who don’t have to work all that much. Sure, there are a lot of business owners and hard working people, but you don’t necessarily have to be on that program. Montréal, and by extension, Québec is pretty bike friendly. It’s really easy to be mobile and jump from spot to spot. The winters are cold, so in the summer everything just explodes and everyone wants to be out and having a good time. Those factors shape the nightlife.
It’s not really like,“Oh, here’s a bar, let’s just drink. Or, this is a restaurant, let’s just eat. Or this is a nightclub, let’s party.” There are so many places where those lines are blurred. Maybe you go for dinner with your Mom and she has a cocktail, then she leaves and your friends come by and now you’re hanging out and it’s midnight and maybe you eat some more and start dancing. It’s less forced. It’s more kind of organic in the way that it works. It’s more natural.

Marc Says: The Fairmount Theatre is in the trendy Mile End neighbourhood and gets a lot of amazing acts coming through.

Where: 5723 Av du Parc, Montréal
Marc Says: Rialto is actually a historic site and restaurant in addition to a music and entertainment venue.
Marc says: Near Jazzfest and all of that. Close to downtown. It’s a fun spot to dance.
Marc says: A great place to go if you’re looking for incredibly good looking French people.
Marc says: A college hotspot, so it’s a sh!tshow. If you’re at that stage in your life, that’s where you’ll have the most fun.
Marc says: One of my little secrets. It’s been there for thirty or forty years and is essentially an African style nightclub. Older dudes go there but the music is so awesome and they have four-dollar beers.
Marc says: In the upcoming neighbourhood of St.Henri, Nora Gray is incredible. They have owners that are actually there, that work, and care about what they’re doing.
Where: 257 Rue Prince, Montréal, QC
Marc says: Le Serpent, they make all their own pasta and it’s completely incredible. It’s in the old fort and amazing. Insane selection of wine.
