I Went To The Opening Of Montreal's Dreamy New Market Terrasse & It Felt Like Tulum


Dreaming of an escape to the Mediterranean or to Tulum in Mexico? All you have to do is head to Griffintown's New City Gas to experience Bazart, a new concept that brings culture, culinary creations and some well-deserved good vibes to Montreal.

I checked out the opening night of the experience and can honestly say it was one of the coolest things I've done in the city.

I must admit, I had never been to New City Gas (I moved here during the pandemic — please forgive me), so I had no idea what to expect. The first thing I thought was, "WOW, this space is so cool!" We walked into the lobby-bar and I was instantly taken by the exposed brick and hanging lights, which created a boho-chic Mykonos-esque aesthetic. Of course, that included a hanging bed.

We stepped inside and walked through the mysterious yet cozy and inviting interior complete with mirrors and candles galore. Before entering the restaurant, we passed through the artisanal marketplace, featuring goods from Meraki, a Laval-based boutique filled with handmade goods and imported treasures from Greece.
