This is the original location of Dunn's Famous that opened in 1927. It's also open 24/7, so you can get your smoked meats on at any time of hour or day. There's a full bar too because hey it's Canada and a cocktail sounds good...More

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and
commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship

youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young
