Going somewhere you like is a good way to meet people with similar tastes, but we personally love going to Bishop & Bagg ( You know how sometimes it seems like the last thing people are willing to do is say hi to one another, let alone acknowledge each other’s existence?
But if the thought of swiping left or right doesn’t exactly entice you, fear not — there’s still plenty of other ways to meet single people around Montreal.
But it’s more than just where you go, it’s where you sit when you get there — rather than trying to snag a table, try hanging out near the bar.
Not only does that put you in a spot where people are constantly passing by as they order drinks, but you’ll likely find some new friends already sitting there and, at the very least, a few fun bartenders to chat with too.
We’ve picked out a few of our own recommendations for those looking to get back out there.
Your first instinct when looking to meet someone new might be to grab a friend and head to your favourite bar.
In our experience, this becomes a lot harder to do when your dogs have stopped to sniff each other’s butts.It’s common practice for dog owners to stop and wait as their pups say hello, and it’s the perfect opportunity for you to do the same.For prime dog walking opportunities, head to a local dog park where lots of pet owners are known to hang out and chat as their pups play.Nice big parks like Parc Lafontaine, Parc Jeanne Mance, Parc Laurier, and Parc Notre-Dame-de-Grâce will give your canine friend plenty of room to run around and make new pals of their own.We at The Main understand that navigating Montreal’s dating scene doesn’t always come easy.In fact, now that dating apps are completely changing the game, it can be pretty overwhelming.
