Our local editors have spent their time handpicking and gathering the best of the best restaurants and chefs under one roof at Time Out Market Montréal. It's a 40,000-square-foot culinary and cultural destination that's located downtown in the Centre Eaton de Montréal, stocked with 13 eateries, six bars (think: beer, wine, cocktails, mocktails, milkshakes and more), a retro arcade, a demo kitchen to both see and taste some culinary action, a cooking school to learn new tricks and techniques, a boutique, and cultural spaces devoted to art, music and more. Our mission is simple (but spelled out here): If we discover something in the city that's unmissable, you'll find it at Time Out Market Montréal.
